At Labster, we are dedicated to empowering the next generation of scientists to change the world. We value impact, being bold, learning, collaboration and having fun whilst we do it.

With 20+ nationalities placed in offices in Bali, Zürich, Copenhagen, and Boston, you will find yourself in a truly international environment, where engagement, values, job satisfaction are goals of equal importance to the financial goals of the company.

The Organization

We have replaced the conventional management hierarchy and organized ourselves using Holacracy.

Holacracy is a method of decentralized management and organizational governance, in which authority and decision-making are distributed throughout a holarchy of self-organizing teams rather than being vested in a management hierarchy. No more top-down management.

We believe in finding talented people and organizations that empower them.

The Role

As a ScrumMaster, you play a critical role by enabling hyper-performing teams through servant leadership. Embedded with our development teams, your focus will be to standardize and facilitate Scrum ceremonies, assess team practices, effectiveness and recommend improvements where needed. You hold our product owners accountable to maintaining a high-quality backlog and also maintain accountability with the development team to deliver against agreed upon sprint goals. You have strong problem-solving skills and technical understanding which enables you to help the team more effectively to be more successful.

 

JOB DESCRIPTION

  • You will organize and facilitate Scrum ceremonies for 1-2 engineering teams and aid our product owners in maintaining a quality backlog by assisting with grooming and planning sessions
  • Through retrospectives, your aim is to take your teams from good to great, and ultimately create a hyper-performing team
  • You will lead Agile Planning sessions where multiple Product Owners and Development Teams come together to plan their next 6 sprints while aligning dependencies
  • You will engage with Engineering and Product leaders on a daily basis and provide open feedback so that they can support you and the team appropriately
  • You will be part of successful planning and delivery of our new product portfolio

Who You Are

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent work experience
  • You are an experienced ScrumMaster who has provided servant leadership for technical teams with varying skill levels
  • You have experience in leading product visions and being hands-down in the week to week team backlog, while not losing focus of the north-star vision
  • You know how to gain the trust and consensus from engineering teams
  • You know what is needed to help engineering teams be more successful
  • You're not afraid of applying creative methods or practices, when the situation requires it
  • You can be pragmatic, and you're always finding ways to simplify processes
  • You have excellent communication skills in English
  • You are familiar with different Agile methodologies, like KanBan, Scrum
  • SAFe and Less are familiar acronyms for you
