About You

The App Business is looking for an enthusiastic Scrum Master, to help us embed and evolve Scrum practices within our Disciplined Agile Delivery framework. We hire Scrum Masters with the ability to motivate, challenge, keep development teams focused and faciliate the collaborative delivery of working software.

An outstanding Scrum Master believes firmly in continuous improvement and in encouraging greater self organisation within the team.

You will put the needs of the team first and help team members develop and perform to the best of their ability. We believe nothing should be an impediment to you doing your best work and we have structured the company around this principle, in order to give people the autonomy to make decisions, encourage experimentation and think big!

If you have passion, skill, and want to join us in building great software and continuing to break boundaries with new ideas and concepts, then apply now and tell us how you will make a difference here at The App Business.

  • Exposure to and appreciation of other methodologies with the ability to leverage techniques which may add value to the team.
  • Understanding of the value of commitment to delivery made by the development team. 
  • Proven knowledge of tracking velocity and responding to variable factors which could affect delivery.
