Job Description:

FinReach sits at the heart of all convergent technologies trends (SaaS, AI, APIs, microservices, etc.), and our developers are tackling some of the most challenging problems in technology today.

Tech and product are the agile core of our company, so as an Scrum Master at FinReach, you will work with our small SCRUM teams to improve teams of developers and overall project management by increasing collaboration, innovation, and introducing techniques that promote adaptability and flexibility. While working towards your achievements, you will have an incredible amount of impact on the current state and future direction of our products, with visibility throughout the organization and a significant opportunity to take ownership.

  • Supporting our Product Owners, especially on grooming and maintaining the product backlog

  • Facilitate meetings as a neutral moderator, e.g. on our retrospectives

  • Start self-organizing your own work, collaborating with our scrum teams in order to ensure radical transparency across the organization.

6 months:

  • Ensure transparency and open communication on all dimensions; speed, stakeholder engagement and processes

  • Develop, implement and manage team metrics, evaluate team metrics and make recommendations to teams and management for improvements

  • Own efficient organizational structures to allow autonomy, low-dependency operation within business lines that are aligned and integrated with the rest of the company

  • Awareness and experience with widely successful Agile techniques: User Stories, ATDD, TDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing, Pairing, Automated Testing, Agile Games

  • A deep sense of ownership of the work you do and believe in doing things the right way for the right reasons

  • Exceptional interpersonal skills; written skills and presentation skills. You will be working with people around the world, which means you will need to have superior English language skills (German skills are a plus)

  • High energy and drive; scrum masters are crucial people managers in our company and need the energy & passion to be on top of their game

  • Natural curiosity, ability and desire to learn quickly; not afraid of driving change

  • Have experience from companies developing PAAS services

  • Extra points for previous work experience as a Software developer or as an quality assurance engineer

What you’ll get from us:

Working with us means you will be challenged every day by our customers and your peers. You can be yourself, speak freely, be trusted and respected. You get to give and receive regular feedback to improve yourself and others.

We know that exceptional people don’t choose jobs based solely on benefits and we do our best to make sure that you’re set up for success. As part of our team you can benefit from our employee-funded company pension scheme, receive varied discounts (from public transportation to sports) and 28+ days of vacation per year.
