job description

Senior Scrum Master / Project Manager WISE Team

job summary:

Offering comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 55 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

POSITION

The Scrum Master / Project Manager is an integral part of our Program Management Office within the Mosaic Technology Group. The Mosaic Technology Group is responsible for innovating and building technical solutions to meet the unique needs of our clients. In the past few years, we have migrated from a waterfall project methodology to an iterative, agile delivery model (based on SAFe) that allows the technology team to deliver value to our investors on a regular basis, improving their overall technology experience.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Scrum Master is responsible for monitoring the scrum processes and scrum meetings for our Mosaic Technology team(s). The Scrum Master will motivate the team, argue for changes and that will ensure both quality and timeliness of deliverables, and remove impediments on a regular basis. Specific daily responsibilities are as follows:

· Provide on-going coaching to the teams on how to use and apply Agile/Scrum practices

· Act as a servant leader for scrum teams, guiding them in developing processes and norms that work best for each team given their team makeup and responsibilities

· Hold scrum teams and their members accountable for following their agreed upon processes and team norms

· Facilitate all agile ceremonies - Daily scrums, Sprint Planning, Sprint Demos, Sprint Retrospectives, and Refinement sessions

· Ensure that communication between teams occurs when necessary to avoid teams becoming blocked by inter-team dependencies.

· Work closely with the Product Owner, Program Owners, and Technical Architecture Leads to ensure that the project vision is understood. Support and advise the Product Owner on maintenance of the product backlog.

· Provide Sprint Results to Program Owners (sprint planning as well as sprint completion) thereby improving transparency for all stakeholders.

· Support assigned scrum team(s), facilitate team productivity as opposed to dictating or assigning work

In addition to the Scrum Master responsibilities above, the Scrum Master/Project Manager will also be responsible for:

· JIRA and Confluence maintenance

· Project and Program status reporting

· Monitoring of time tracking and budget impacts
