Scrum Master - FinTech, London. Working with a very strong new FinTech start-up based in London you will be Scrum Master across two brand new Scrum teams (5 Devs, one TA, one Product Owner). Ideally you will have worked in a banking or FinTech environment recently in the guise of Scrum Master and have second level Scrum Master certification. Knowledge of other Agile techniques/approaches such as Kanban, XP, FDD, Crystal would be handy too. You will have indepth and demonstrable experience as a seasoned Scrum Master and have diligently applied Scrum practice, principles and theory. Good skills and knowledge of servant leadership, facilitation, situational awareness, conflict resolution, continual improvement, empowerment, and increasing transparency are of course all key. Knowledge of numerous well documented patterns and techniques for filling in the intentional gaps left in the Scrum approach (example: numerous Burndown techniques, numerous Retrospective formats, handling bugs, etc) is also expected of the right candidate. Working knowledge of techniques such as user stories, TDD, BDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous testing, paired programming, automated testing and Agile games are all helpful as you will look into using these to run successful Scrum teams. Any Agile Coaching experience would be helpful, although they are looking for a Scrum Master and not an Agile Coach, they do know and appreciate the difference! This is a fairly new and very well funded FinTech start-up who have grown to 80 people within a year and are now creating two new Scrum teams for new feature creation. This is a really exciting opportunity to be part of a movement that aims to change the face of banking as part of the digital revolution with core principles around transparency and fairness. There is the opportunity to move into a permanent position after the contract if that might be of interest. If not, a straight Contract is more than fine.
