Job Description

We are looking for a highly seasoned ScrumMaster who will coach and guide teams toward agile maturity, as well as help direct project management functions for the development and execution of major projects. You will be joining Experian's Shared Marketing business unit and working closely with engineering and business teams that support digital content owners and marketers across more over 40 countries.

The ideal candidate is a driver, a leader, a self-starter, self-motivated, and at the same time, strongly team-oriented and collaborative. You have exceptional communication skills, both oral and written, and can tailor your communication style across all levels of business and technology to ensure all stakeholders are well-informed and satisfied. You thrive in a fast-paced, high-energy environment and are able to change hats as needed to suit the situation of the moment. You are transparent and open with your team, your colleagues and your leaders around successes, challenges, and areas of opportunity. You remain calm under pressure, and inspire and motivate your team to do the same. You're a natural problem solver - you gather the facts before making an informed decision, but you're able to solution quickly if the circumstance requires. You conduct yourself confidently and respectfully with colleagues at all levels, and you value building strong relationships across the organization.

Responsibilities include:

* Facilitate Scrum ceremonies, including daily stand-up, grooming, sprint planning, sprint retrospective, scrum-of-scrums

* Provide thorough status updates/reports on your team's sprint and/or project accomplishments in real-time to project/program manager and other key stakeholders
* Escalate risks, roadblocks or issues in a timely fashion
* Present team/project status, metrics, risks or concerns to stakeholders at all levels of the organization with confidence and clarity, verbally and in writing
* Coach and provide feedback to individual team members and stakeholders on Agile best practices and areas of opportunity
* Collaborate with third-party vendors and partners to drive cross-business unit project dependencies
* Coordinate and facilitate project and sprint production releases across multiple teams

* Ability to interact professionally and confidently with colleagues at all levels, including senior and executive management
* Articulate, clear and confident communication and presentation skills
* High proficiency in Atlassian suite (Confluence, JIRA, Portfolio)
* PMP/PMI-ACP certification

Additional experience in one or more of these areas is a plus:
