Momentum takes pride in establishing a team of highly skilled professionals to deliver IT consulting services to our Fortune 500 clients. We provide successful technology solutions and solve critical business challenges to meet our client s needs. Our alliances with industry-leading technology organizations have been instrumental to our success and allow us to offer robust solutions that are highly scalable and supportable using the best technologies available.

We are seeking to hire a seasoned Senior Scrum Master to join our team. The Scrum Master will spend much of their time helping other team members communicate, coordinate, and cooperate; generally, this person will assist the team in meeting their delivery goals. The Scrum Master is a servant leader who enables teams to self-organize, self-manage, and deliver via effective Lean-Agile practices. The Scrum Master supports and enforces the Scrum process and other rules that the team has agreed.

The successful candidate will work directly with clients to ensure deliverables fall within the applicable scope and budget. He or she will coordinate with other departments to ensure all aspects of each project are compatible and will hire new talent as needed to fulfill client needs.

About the job:
  • Exhibits the behaviors of a Lean-Agile Leader with a Lean-Agile Mindset.
  • Helps the team embrace SAFe Core Values, adopt and apply SAFe Principles, and implement SAFe practices.
  • Supports the team rules such as Scrum, Built-In Quality practices from Extreme Programming (XP), Work in Process (WIP) limits from Kanban, and any other process rules the team has agreed.
  • Facilitates the team s progress toward team goals
  • Facilitates all team meetings, including (where applicable) the Daily Stand-up, Iteration Planning, Iteration Review, and Iteration Retrospective.
  • Helps the Product Owner in their efforts to manage the backlog and guide the team while facilitating a healthy team dynamic with respect to priorities and scope.
  • The Scrum Master actively addresses issues relating to impediments so that the team can remain focused on achieving the objectives of the Iteration.
  • Promotes SAFe quality practices
  • Helps the team manage interpersonal conflicts, challenges, and opportunities for growth.
  • Escalates people problems to management where necessary, but only after internal team processes have failed to resolve the issue; helps individuals and teams through personnel changes.
  • Communicates with management and outside stakeholders; helps protect the team from uncontrolled expansion of work.
  • Helps coordinate inter-team cooperation and helps the team operate well on the train.
  • Coordinate with the System Team, User Experience, Architecture, and Shared Services. It is important to note, however, that the responsibility for inter-team coordination cannot be delegated entirely to the Scrum Master; every team member shares responsibility in that regard.
  • Guides the team in establishing normalized estimates and helps the team understand how to estimate Features and Capabilities.


About you:
  • Bachelors degree in IT, Business Management or similar
  • 5+ years of experience working as a Scrum Master
