You will be joining the CycurV2X group that is developing the security behind Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure technology (or Vehicle-to-Everything, V2X). This technology will enable next generation ADAS capabilities in vehicles to create a safer and more efficient driving experience, be it automated or traditional driving.

You will diligently work to bring order to a fluid and dynamic environment for our agile teams, allowing them to fulfill each customer commitment, and at the same time helping the team feel empowered, equipped and supported.

You will:

  • Plan and run local agile development, and interact with scrum masters for our global products.

  • Identify and address roadblocks with the teams, ensuring the teams can be efficient and happy
  • Ensure processes are in place that meet the needs of all of our stakeholders


  • Expert agile scrum master with project management experience; but we are also looking for flexible application of these schemes.  Knowledge of the SAFE framework is beneficial. Knowledge of automotive or safety quality processes and systems a benefit.
  • Experience being a scrum master for distributed teams, especially in different time zones
  • Ability to effectively interact with customers, partners, senior management and colleagues empathetically. You are a warm-hearted powerful influencer for whom people are happy to get things done.
  • Strong time management skills to coordinate all deliverables and to consider dependencies.
  • A team player with a history of meeting multiple deadlines successfully, bridges unburnt.
  • Fluent in English, capable of easy communication whether to a technical or a business audience.
