Job #:  827852

Apex Systems is looking for 2 Scrum Masters for one of our larger financial clients. If you are interested, please apply here. 

Scrum Master:

  • 2 Scrum Masters in HR portfolio – has not historically been Agile, little pushback from business
  • Originally, they wanted SM under Dev but there have been a lot of gaps, so they’re taking matters in their own hands
  • She has 2 FTE SM
  • New teams being set up, being trained together
  • Team: 8-10 people, developers, product owner that sits in line of business - also has small % of PM on project
  • 1 PM in corporate affairs that is training up to be SM
  • Still have to meet enterprise change standards



  • This person may help out with training – most teams are getting trained in SAFe, but there are definitely gaps in HR and folks that may not have been trained
  • Help drive team to get aligned
  • Follow ceremonies



  • Ok with blend (SM/PM/Coach), but they must have successfully delivered and completed several Scrum projects as a SM
  • Will have some coaching responsibilities, so ideally we look for someone that is a Scrum Master/Coach combo
  • Jira is the preference – development teams well trained in it, but product owner for example is not going to know
  • Doesn’t want a true Agilest – they’re not 100% Agile and don’t go by the book
  • Proactive, not sitting and waiting
  • Understand and identify key partners
