Scrum Master – SaaS Cloud Solutions
A brand-new team. A brand-new location. A brand-new opportunity.
If you’re a Scrum Master, you already know how critical it is to make the best use of Agile and Scrum practices in a team. You’ll know what makes a group of people work well together, and you’ll understand how to get the most out of self-organisation. We’re looking for our very first Scrum Master, based in Katowice, who will build our new SaaS team from scratch and be the leader for Agile and Scrum practices at the heart of this new group.
Mentor, a Siemens Company, is a global technology powerhouse. With some of the best-known brands in the world, Siemens has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, and reliability for more than 165 years. You might not know that we’re focusing on a new SaaS offering for Electronic Board Systems, to complement the existing market leading desktop and on-premise solutions.
To do this, we’re setting up this brand-new team in Katowice, focused on delivering cloud solutions that leverage the investments made in our desktop and on-premise products, our Siemens Cloud solutions, as well as our market leading low-code platform. We’re proud to work in a fast-paced environment where agile development is embraced, and innovation is encouraged, and if you’re thinking of joining us, here’s what you’ll need to know.
What will I do?
- Build an outstanding team – you’ll hire great people and develop them into a high performing team by coaching, mentoring and guiding them to use Agile and Scrum practices and value to delight our customers
- Solve problems – you’ll be the one to remove obstacles or blockers, either by using your skills and knowledge, or helping other to do this
- Coach and educate Product Owner and Managers – you’ll help Product Owners to maintain the product backlog, and you’ll collaborate with Product Managers to help them prioritise what’s truly critical to our strategy
This role is at the forefront of our new team – you’re a leader. You’ll have a wide range of responsibilities and you’ll be the one people rely on to facilitate and enable decision making and problem solving. You’re at the heart of communication across the team, promoting transparency and connecting people at every opportunity. At Siemens, everyone can positively impact thousands of customers, and you will be called on to identify, realise, and drive these opportunities as our Scrum Master.
- Scrum Master experience
- Software development and engineering knowledge
- Outstanding coaching and mentoring skills
You’ll already need to be an experienced Scrum Master – someone who’s seen a lot of enterprise or engineering software development in at least one previous Scrum Master role, where you’ve had accountability for driving Agile and Scrum practices successfully. You’ll be comfortable working with various patterns and techniques for filling in the intentional gaps left in the Scrum approach – like numerous Burndown technologies, various Retrospective formats, handling bugs, etc. You’ll also have experience with widely successful Agile techniques: User Stories, ATDD, TDD, Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing, Pairing, Automated Testing, Agile Games and the like.
You’ll need the expertise that comes along with a background in technical roles, so an education in a technical discipline and some experience on the ground to back that up. A background in electrical design might be an advantage too – but we’re not considering it a must-have.
We’ll hire someone who is a naturally authentic and capable leader; someone who can influence positively and inspire those around you to collaborate and innovate. You’ll be at your best when you’re driving transparency and a culture of continual improvement, and you’ll be the kind of person who thrives on coaching and mentoring others. Ideally, you’ll have had some experience of hiring and building a team – although, that’s not absolutely essential, it would certainly help you to have an understanding of what it takes to get a team started from scratch.
What’s the catch?
There is none. We offer a great salary and benefits – everything you’d expect from a world-renowned company. You get to join at the very start of a high profile global project with the backing of a great leader, Andy Mitchell. You’ll be surrounded by passionate and driven colleagues who share a vision for the success of this team, and you’ll have every opportunity to grow and develop at the heart of our organization.
