Scrum Master - Permanent
- Edinburgh, UK
Buildit @ Wipro Digital is a global technology consultancy and part of Wipro Digital and the wider Wipro Organisation. As consultants, we are technology agnostic, we advise, we don’t advocate. We love demanding challenges and getting to the root of the problem, whatever it may be. “Digital” can be both ambiguous and all encompassing with aspects of Engineering, Design, and Delivery. Technology centric but much more than just technologists, our agenda is delivering success for our customers.
Doing things differently requires strength of character, empathy for those around you, good judgement, as well as being able to explain why to do something differently in the customer's language and at the right time. This requires not just being able to do what good looks like but to stand in the middle of something not good and influence the outcome incrementally day to day to make it better.
Our people are at the core of this process. Trust in our people underpins everything we do. Talented, passionate, hard-working, and some of the sharpest people you will ever meet. The best thing about working here is the people you get to work with while solving hard problems.
Who are we Looking for:
We are looking for people with a truly Agile Mind-Set who want to be involved with the best technical teams in Edinburgh. We want you to help us, help our customer change their way of thinking and how they approach problems. We want you to join our team and help teach and also learn from the others in the team. If you are looking for a quiet environment, where you can hide away then this isn’t for you. We want people who know how to make the most of Agile Delivery and who can share that with the team and with our customer. But we also want people who are humble and know when to ask for support and guidance and who aren’t afraid to admit they might not have the right answer there and then. But you will know how to find out the right answer.
Most importantly we are looking for you to value the people in your team and wider teams. Supporting them to flourish, understand the pros and cons of implementing certain ways of thinking, technologies or methodologies.
What Will You Do:
Working with our talented Engineering teams, you will be a hands on Scrum Master enabling the teams to deliver new development, products and enhancements to meet customer requirements. Understanding the truly Agile Principles and being able to be an Agile Leader is key in this role. Working through fortnightly sprint cycles you will drive the team forward and make sure that they have the best environment for delivering the best code. You will also be able to understand how to adapt the Agile approach to be fit for purpose, this is not an 'out the box agile' environment.
The Scrum teams you will be taking ownership for will include a number of Engineers, QAs and a Product Owner from the business. Making sure everyone has an equal say and responsibility is part of the role of the Buildit Scrum Master and the teams are well versed themselves in Agile and what it takes to have a successful Agile team.
