Scrum Master

Philadelphia

Are you passionate about leading a software engineering team using agile techniques and practices? We have a unique opportunity for you in our Philadelphia office to bring that passion to the Macquarie Asset Management (MAM) Technology team to facilitate continuous improvement of our operational data platform.

We are building a scalable global platform using modern and cloud native technologies to enable MAM to grow as a data driven and tech enabled organization. Working with a team of talented engineers, you’ll help to build new data pipelines, integration services, and business-facing user interfaces using microservices and API driven architectures.

In addition to working with product owners and engineers, you’ll gain exposure to Portfolio Managers, Traders, Middle and Back Office and Distribution staff. Asset Management knowledge is useful but not required as you’ll learn this from your team and directly from our business counterparts.

If you’re interested in a new challenge where you can flex and grow your agile skillset – using modern technology to deliver tangible business value – then we’d love to hear from you.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Leading a global scrum team focused on software and data engineering on top of a Fintech SaaS data storage platform
  • managing and coordinating delivery and agile rituals including: sprint and release planning, daily stand-ups, sprint reviews, showcases, retrospectives, and other activities
  • tracking vendor features, defects, and delivery timeframes and prioritizing work accordingly
  • maintaining sprint flow by managing risks and removing blockers
  • guiding teams to be self-organized, promote a collaborative team environment that foster creativity, innovation, continuous improvement and celebrate successes
  • providing targeted communication to all stakeholders to ensure clear understanding of dependencies, deliverables and issues
  • developing an effective change management plan ensuring that the required change is achieved
  • assisting in effort estimation forecasting and people management

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • 3+ years’ experience as a Project Manager / Scrum Master working closely with product owners and engineers
  • proven experience in Agile delivery models and mindsets
  • delivering complex projects working across multiple streams, multiple regions, with diverse stakeholders
  • strong stakeholder management skills to gain consensus and deliver outcomes
