Introduction to the job

In the Software Innovation department we provide the development environment for large groups of software developers (>2500). These developers work on the software that controls our high-tech machines. Next to continuous enhancement of the existing environment we are implementing a new set of state-of-the-art off-the-shelf tools (e.g. source control management, software build and pipeline management, artifact storage, etc.). We are expanding our teams to be able to deliver both the required enhancements and the new environment. Therefore we are also looking for an experienced scrum master that can play a key role in bringing Scrum to the next level and further integrate the teams in the Agile Release Train.

- Help remove impediments for the team
- Help the team in improving efficiency (continuous improvement)
- Work together with Product Owner, Chief Product Owner (SAFe Product Manager) and Release Train Engineer,in handling changes in backlog and scope
- Align the team activities with stakeholders
As we are growing the teams will be expanded and new teams will be formed. You will play an important role in helping these teams in this dynamic situation to become successful.

Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
