Scrum Master

Experienced Scrum Master needed to support the growth and development of our business.


Job Profile

We need a Scrum Master who loves detail and documentation. Someone who will hold us to account to the promises we’ve made, or chase us when a deferred date swings around, and do so with a smile.

We are a small company of around 40 people in the sports betting and bookmaking sector. The development team (about half of our total staff) work on systems for trading on sports betting markets. We offer bets to the public, we take bets offered by others and we sell pricing information to interested third parties.

Our development work is split across multiple projects and we now need the assistance of a Scrum Master to improve our ability to deliver these projects and maintain a high level view of our overall progress.

You will be reporting directly to the CTO to make sure that you have the authority and ability to effect real meaningful change across the business. You will also be working alongside our product owners to help them with prioritising their individual projects, and with the overall PO to improve the long-term planning of our strategic backlog.

We want someone who will streamline process, improve collaboration / coordination and so a background in sports betting is not preferred.
