Our team requires the addition of a Scrum Master to ensure the productivity of its members and coordinate with stakeholders.
The team self-manages and comprises a handful of software development and quality assurance professionals, distributed across the globe. It has been building an innovative online collaboration tool for an internet startup for 6 months. I've personally introduced Scrum from the start but now need to focus on other activities.
The team interacts primarily with its product owner, an architect, a salesperson and the infrastructure provider. It has weekly planning and grooming sessions, as well as retrospectives, reviews and daily scrums. The tools at their disposal include JIRA Agile, Confluence, Github and a Skype Group for instant messaging. The meetings always take place in Google Hangouts and are scheduled in a Google Calendar.
The successful candidate will be a Certified Scrum Master and speak good English. They will have 15-25 hours to dedicate to the project per week and the flexibility to adapt to the team's schedule (attached). They will be familiar with the tools currently in use. Above all, they will have excellent communication, coordination and facilitation skills.
