Where you fit
We're seeking a Scrum Master with strong Agile project experience to support a dynamic new development team, joining one of our exciting new innovation hubs at Shell. This is a role where you'll be actively encouraged to take pride in doing things differently - to take a unique approach of balancing human-centred and digital design with an agile technology capability in order to tackle complex problems in original ways.
With a huge variety of potential projects to grow across the business, within an evolving landscape, you'll be challenged to think innovatively, with many different areas to investigate, tackling varied problem areas in terms of people, industry and scenarios.

As Scrum Master, you'll be responsible for ensuring your team is successful in working together and working in Agile. Providing support to the team and leading by example, including facilitating discussion and decision making, and quickly resolving any conflicts to get the work delivered efficiently and effectively.
As a highly independent, confident professional, you'll be able to deliver value, adapting quickly to an ever-changing environment, and effectively guiding the team and organisation on how to use Agile/Scrum practices and values to its full benefit.
Naturally, your communication and mentoring skills will be second to none, as you work skillfully to nurture a trusting and safe environment where problems can be raised without fear of blame or judgement, within a collective approach to problem-solving.
You can expect more specific duties to include:
Assessing the Scrum maturity of the team and organisation, before coaching the team to higher levels of maturity, at a pace that is sustainable.
Assisting with internal and external communication, improving transparency, and information-sharing.
Supporting and educating product owners, especially on maintaining the product backlog.
What we need from you
We're keen to hear from men and women with experience in playing the Scrum Master role, with proven skills and knowledge of leadership, facilitation, conflict resolution and increasing transparency. Plus, we'd also hope to see evidence on your CV of the following:
Experience in applying a wide variety of well-documented patterns and techniques to enhance the Scrum approach.
Knowledge and experience of other agile and DevOps approaches
