Job description

At Double Eye, we develop and license our own IP as well as have clients who outsource their development requirements to us and trust that we will guide them toward the most suitable technologies and deliver the best quality applications - which we do!

We're about 35 tech enthusiasts organised in 6 scrum teams, and today we're looking for a Scrum master to champion the team working on our flagship product: a multi-platform e-reader (Web, Android, iOS, Windows) and its CMS.

As the Scrum expert, the Scrum master helps the team learn and apply Scrum and the related Agile practices, in order to achieve ever-higher levels of performance. He is responsible for facilitating the scrum ceremonies and removing any impediments or roadblocks that are keeping the developers from doing their work.

The key responsibilities of the Scrum master are:
  • Coach the team through the adoption of the Lean and Agile principles
  • Schedule and facilitate the Scrum ceremonies: sprint planning, daily scrum (standup), sprint review and sprint retrospective
  • Support the Product Owner in his efforts to manage the backlog
  • Keep the team focused on the sprint goal
  • Identify, make visible and actively address impediments that prevent the developers from doing their work
  • Lead the team's efforts in relentless improvement
  • Improve the team dynamics and performance by managing the interpersonal conflicts, challenges, and opportunities for growth
  • Protect the team from overcommitment and uncontrolled injection of work


Although the Scrum master doesn't have to have a tech background, it's a plus. If you are familiar with Jira, it's even better. However, more than anything, the perfect candidate has a proven track record of establishing a collaborative culture within a team and leading without direct authority. If you have natural leadership qualities, good people skills and keen interest in team dynamics, this job is for you.
