What you’ll be doing
At Nomensa we are driven by a clear purpose of building products that give a fantastic user experience. No surprises there, as we have one of the largest teams of UX professionals in Europe! But as part of our strategic vision for the future, we are investing in all our processes that will help us deliver projects with maximum customer value and efficiency.
The Scrum Master will play a key role in Nomensa by coaching our project teams, and the wider business, in the way we deliver projects. You’ll facilitate the meetings that need to happen to ensure project delivery, and maintain the Team Scrum or Kanban board, acting as team JIRA Administrator.
Another critical aspect of your role will be to monitor any impediments that are hampering the delivery efforts of your teams, and break them down as quickly as possible.
Working closely with our Head of QA, you’ll also act as a process and quality gatekeeper at both ends of the delivery team process, minimising wasted time by the team from and ensure quality coming out of the pipeline.
What we need from you
Previous experience in a scrum master capacity is essential, as you’ll be taking on this new role within Nomensa and ‘disrupting for good’ in the way we tackle projects and influencing behavioural change across the agency. So, if you’re a certified scrum master with experience of running the full scrum process in different commercial organisations then this is a role where you can really make an impact.
You’ll need experience of coaching individuals in agile delivery, but ideally a wider systems thinking and service design mindset. Agency experience is also beneficial, because you’ll be well versed with the fast-changing situations that crop up, and multiple parallel workstreams.
With your experience of delivering agile projects, you’ll also be responsible for providing feedback and advice to new agile project teams, and helping our talented UX practitioners, designers and developers to perform at a higher level, so your communication skills will be extremely important here too. We are an agency that thrives on collaboration.
