We are seeking passionate, determined and resilient individuals who thrive in a self-directed, collaborative culture. Our technology is transforming global society and humanity - we welcome you to this exciting opportunity.

About the Role:

The Scrum Master and Agile Coach is responsible for the success of multiple scrum teams, specifically how they execute Agile methodology to produce high-performing teams producing innovative products. You will be responsible for ensuring Agile standards and best practices are effectively leveraged. You are focused on performance and have a wide-breadth of experience implementing complex programs that drive business objectives. You must be comfortable balancing multiple team/stakeholder expectations and multiple levels of experience within teams. It’s critical that you understand how to apply Agile theory to the practical matter of getting teams to deliver product. You have to balance this while operating from our top three Agile values: teamwork, experimentation and empowerment/ownership, as guidelines for a successful Agile culture.

Ideal Experience and Skills
  • 7+ years’ experience implementing Agile as a Scrum Master, with software development teams, preferably in a startup environment.
  • Deep understanding of Lean and Agile frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, Lean, Scaled Agile) and how to apply them.
  • Understanding of backlog tracking, burndown metrics, velocity and task definition.
  • Experienced in assessing, evaluating, and questioning team member activities and processes in all functional areas and make sound organizational decisions based upon evidence.
  • Experience as a Program Manager, Director of Agile Delivery or similar, and have led organizational Agile transformations and/or have developed Agile systems in a startup incubator.

Nice to Have
  • Experience working in a start-up culture
  • Ability to thrive in ambiguity
  • An understanding of the Blockchain and Ethereum ecosystem, with an interest and curiosity to learn more
  • Emotional self-awareness, positive outlook, emotional self-control, adaptability and empathy

Perks of the Mesh
  • A dynamic startup environment. ConsenSys is a leader with vision in the blockchain space and we are absorbing a significant portion of the attention. This is both exciting and challenging, as we learn to scale our organization while adhering to the principles of decentralization.
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Decentralized culture. We offer a new way of structuring an organization: holacratic (non-hierarchical) meaning you are free from hierarchical restraints, working in an environment that truly encourages all levels of collaboration.
  • Remote work
  • Global reach. Connect with brilliant minds across 6 continents as we continue to grow and build a diversified culture.

Opportunities for the Decentralized Future
  • The forefront of a revolution. At ConsenSys we fundamentally believe that the next generation of technology presents an opportunity to craft a more just and equitable society.
  • Continuous learning. You’ll be constantly exposed to new languages, frameworks and ideas from your peers and as you work on different projects -- challenging you to stay at the top of your game.
  • Deep technical challenges. The entire ecosystem is about 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler. For these platforms to scale to the order of millions or billions of users we have much work ahead. The team at ConsenSys is building technology platforms that can get us to those next thresholds of scale.
  • Entrepreneurial opportunities. We are always encouraging our community to push the boundaries with innovative dApps.
