Scrum Master

Job description

Payconiq is a mobile payment scale-up which is currently growing a strong presence in the BENELUX region with a rich roadmap to expand across Europe


We have 95 people on the team and 45 nationalities.  It is our mission to become the most wanted mobile payment connection in all of Europe.


We stand for making bold decisions to enhance user experience, being human as that is the real core of our business, doing things simply as life is already complicated enough, keeping it playful, and always staying honest
 

We are on the lookout for a Scrum Master who will do the following:

  • participate in agile product development lifecycles from sprint-planning to retrospective inspired by the Spotify model where you would be serving squads
  • create performing and self-organised teams with a clear and engaging direction, to help to identify and resolve organisational impediments
  • educate the organisation on Agile Methodologies in never-ending adaption
  • work closely with development teams to successfully bringing our products to customers
  • use the deep Scrum understanding and knowledge of Lean to guide everybody to discover how they can best contribute to creating the most valuable product.


Your four key focus areas will be:

    1. Team(s) - forming a team, educating and coaching the team(s) in self-management and taking on shared responsibility. When your Team has matured then you as a Scrum Master may take up another team (up to 3 teams).
    2. Product Owner(s) - educating on how a product owner can best use the Product Backlog, facilitation of his/her interaction with the team(s), and being there to help him/her reflect. The Product Owner needs feedback from you as a Scrum Master to validate the direction of the product and to deliver business value in a sustainable way. You, our Scrum Master helps to build up a relationship of trust, equality, and cooperation.
    3. The organisation - being a change agent to structure the organisation that supports a team in producing results.
    4. Engineering culture (development practices) - being aware of what the top-notch modern development practices are and helping to introduce these to the team. The focus on development practices stays high as it will only become harder and harder to improve the teams even further within potential growth of codebases.
