Techwan an Everbridge company are currently seeking a Scrum Master to be based in Switzerland. Do you want to save lives and keep business running – faster? We work with critical response teams to get them to critical emergencies – faster. You will enhance the operators experience to dramatically improve the information exchange with field operators (ambulance, fire service, police, …). The Scrum Master (SM) helps the Team apply the Scrum framework, increasing the likelihood of overall success. SMs bring a deep understanding of Scrum values, principles, and practices to the team and help enforce expected Agile behaviors. SMs act as "servant leaders" or facilitators for the team, helping the other members learn and adhere to Scrum rituals, ceremonies, and practices. SMs also look to protect the team from internal and external distractions so that it can focus on delivering its sprint commitments. 

What you'll do:

  • Leading the specific Scrum ceremonies, rituals, and practices (i.e., sprint planning, daily standups, backlog grooming support, sprint reviews, demos, retrospectives, metrics capture and publication) 
  • Facilitating team progress against defined sprint goals and commitments 
  • Promoting and enforcing Agile values and behaviors among the team 
  • Collaborating  with the Product Owner and other team members to write effective user stories 
  • Partnering with the Product Owner to help create prioritized release and sprint backlogs 
  • Facilitating story estimation activities 
  • Updating the story board regularly 
  • Creating and tracking sprint metrics (i.e., daily burndown/burnup, goals achieved, features completed/delivered, risks and dependencies, etc.) 

What you'll bring:

  • Experience in a similar role as a Scrum Master
  • A great facilitator and coach 
  • Creative in removing impediments
  • Critical thinker who is known to possess good judgement
  • Articulate and an excellent listener
