Scrum Master

Omschrijving

Snappet is looking for a new scrum master. Will you join our team?


Help improve the learning results of children: that is what we aim for at Snappet. We develop smart software that enables teachers and children to get the best results. Our software is used in more than 3500 schools across the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and the USA and is used by more than 300.000 students. We strive to deliver continuous improvements to our products to support all these schools and students.


As a Scrum Master, you will be part of multiple development teams. Each team consists of 5 to 8 team members, developing and innovating their own areas of our platform. You will be supporting the team to improve and learn to become high performing. At the same time, you will be working on broader improvements within the Agile Guild, collaborating with other Scrum Masters and Agile Guild members.


A day in the life of a Scrum Master at Snappet

It is 9:30 in the morning and after finishing the remote Daily Scrum, you call one of the other Scrum Masters to prepare a facilitation format for her upcoming Sprint planning. Together you also check the data of our team health scans to see if our latest feedback experiments have shown an effect on the results.


It’s lunch time! Your other team decided to meet at the office today. It is a lovely day to go for a walk in Utrecht and have lunch together. During the last team retrospective it came up that everyone is willing to make an effort to see each other in real life at least every 2 weeks. It helps that we can interact with each other more on a personal level.

After lunch we have the bi-weekly Agile Guild meeting. At this meeting, we as scrum masters collaborate with Engineering leadership to solve department wide impediments.
Time to get some coffee and later, you have a call with one of the developers to coach him on his personal growth using the Ecocycle Planning structure. He lets you know that these sessions have helped him focus on the activities which help him reach his personal goals.


After your session, you start planning the next platform Inspect & Adapt meeting. You are excited about facilitating this session with stakeholders and team members, you believe that it will support transparency and empathy within the organization.


Before signing off for the day, you walk through the slides of tomorrow’s department wide Review meeting. It is your turn to host this meeting and there are a lot of exciting topics to be discussed, hopefully they will trigger some valuable feedback from our stakeholders.
