One of the country’s leading medical institutions is revolutionizing patients’ interactions with their healthcare providers over digital and mobile technologies, and seeks a Scrum Master to facilitate the development of these exciting new products.
Every day, you’ll sit down with the innovation team to make sure that it’s functioning optimally. Around you will be engineers, QAs, designers, product folks and stakeholders; and you will be there at the center, single-mindedly banishing distractions and impediments to collaboration, urging and facilitating the team toward greater speed, quality and productivity. This will not be a one-project gig; as the Scrum Master you’ll manage multiple sprints and programs, which will require interfacing with a wide range of stakeholders – nurses, deans, surgeons, HR. You’ll also be the Lean/Agile evangelist within the organization, making true believers of people throughout the facility as they see the fruit of your efforts.
Hired Gun Profile
Ideally, you’re a certified scrum master. Certainly you’re seasoned –you know your pigs from your chickens and your sprints from your road blocks. You can easily point to very recent experience overseeing multiple concurrent projects with multiple teams –and you wouldn’t have it any other way, since that’s your preferred tempo.
You’re committed to the agile philosophy, believing it to be the most effective tool for keeping teams firing on all cylinders–yet you have enough big-org experience to know when to bend in order to get the work done while still advocating for the methodology. Obviously you’ve got the JIRA thing more than licked. And not incidentally, you won’t succeed in this role without possessing a rare combination of interpersonal qualities –you’ve got to be pleasant enough to build consensus but firm enough to enforce the rules and be taken seriously.
You really must lay claim to significant agile experience, and be ready to display that old interpersonal je ne sais quoi without which you’re a goner in the role.
For a passionate agile type, this gig will keep you hopping happily at a much-respected and ever-evolving New York institution.
