Jellyvision is hiring a Scrum Master

Who we are

We at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ALEX, a platform that saves employees and their employers money by making tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits—less confusing and more enjoyable. The success of ALEX has exceeded our wildest work-related dreams, which is why we need an experienced Scrum Master to help us continue on our journey.  

How you’ll help

As a Scrum Master, you’ll be responsible for the success of the delivery teams towards reaching their strategic outcomes. You will help delivery teams, colleagues, and the organization reflect and improve while creating an environment for delivery teams to succeed. You know that newer teams will need more high-touch applications such as event facilitation while changing approaches and amount of support as teams mature. To get there, you’ll report into the Agile Coach through the Organizational Effectiveness team developing teams’ current ways of working, structure, and tools and creating an environment built on collaboration, communication, visibility, and engagement. 

What you’ll do

  • Focus on and coach teams within a value stream from idea to product development to delivery

  • Provide strategies for how to decentralize decision making when needed and lessen dependencies
  • Knows enough around how software development works to make sure the team is efficient and effective
  • Utilize appropriate metrics to identify progress, proactively mitigate risks, recommend improvements, and lead improvement activities
  • Partner with other team leaders to create an environment that energizes and empowers team members to innovate, focus, and get value delivered with a focus on accountability, adaptability, and collaboration
  • Educate delivery teams around agility, including the tools, techniques, and roles

Experience & skills you’ll need

  • 4+ years of demonstrated experience as a Scrum Master
  • Has seen or been part of a transformation and knows how to incorporate change management techniques
  • Experience with tools that aid teams (e.g. Jira, Confluence, Drive, collaboration tools), including the better ways of organizing those tools that encourages collaboration and transparency
  • Knowledge and application of various agile frameworks, philosophies, and techniques (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, XP, Lean, LeSS, etc.)
  • Enough technical acumen to ask great questions and challenge teams’ assumptions
  • Established reputation for building peer like relationships and able to communicate and influence groups with highly developed communication skills

Required Competencies

  • Action-oriented
  • Optimizes work processes
  • Communicates effectively
  • Ensures accountability
  • Collaborates
  • Drives engagement
  • Situational adaptability

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.

Drew

Implementation Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

The product team is full of self-driven, curious, scrappy individuals. The most successful are the least afraid of jumping into ambiguity and getting creative in overcoming the numerous obstacles thrown at them every day. Their ability to adapt to change quickly while keeping their teams calm, cool, and collected makes the job look easy!

Brynna

Principal Product Manager, New Concepts

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.

Alex

VP of Implementation
