HERE’S SOME INFORMATION FOR YOU

DAZN is changing the way people watch sports forever, by putting the consumer first, providing more sport, no long contract and a single low monthly fee.

As a Scrum Master working at DAZN, you will be responsible for supporting our Product Engineering teams to deliver their sprint commitments, removing blockers and coaching them to self-organize.
 
Working within the Agile Delivery team, you will play a lead role by supporting our teams to design and build world leading streaming services across web, mobile and TV platforms. You will be involved in working on new feature releases and evolving the next phase of application framework. With a rapidly expanding company, growth within the team and opportunities to lead engineering initiatives are abundant. We need people who want to help us build a strong engineering culture and a fun, vibrant workplace.

HERE’S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU’LL DO (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF)

  • Organise and facilitate Scrum ceremonies (planning meetings, daily scrums, demos and retrospectives).
  • Ensure the development team & Product Owner work together in the Scrum framework.
  • Track the progress of the Sprint on a daily basis in order to be able to take proactive measures ahead of time where required to help the team to achieve the sprint goal.
  • Monitor and communicate team velocity and release progress.
  • Ensure the team are being as effective and productive as they can by protecting them from external distractions and actively removing impediments to their progression.
  • Work with the Product Owner to prepare the scrum backlog.
  • Liaise with other Scrum teams and external teams to address and resolve cross team issues, conflicts and dependencies.
  • Be an active part of the Scrum Master community within DAZN and participate in continuous improvement within this discipline.

YOU’LL NEED TO HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS

  • Have worked directly in a Product/Software Development field for 2-5 years as either a Scrum Master, Developer or Tester.
  • Commercial experience as a Scrum Master, having a variety of tools in your 'toolbox' to effectively work with your teams.
  • Certified Scrum Master (Scrum Alliance or scrum.org).
  • Ability to handle conflict effectively.
  • Understanding of Agile & Lean principles.

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE SKILLS TOO

  • Experience of release level planning.
  • Excellent communication and influencing skills with all Seniority levels.
