What do we need:
We are looking for a Sr. Project Manager/SCRUM Master to provide project and team leadership for key strategic projects within the Global Core Components team.
What’s special about this team:
This team is responsible for delivering core application components for other Amway teams to use in their applications. The biggest internal clients are the market-based teams responsible for the market implementation of Hybris. The overall team is made up of Software Developers, Project Managers, QA Testers, and Analysts. They have a cross-functional partnership with our Digital team. They enjoy a lean, Agile work environment, and they are led by the Manager of IT Relationship Experiences.
How you would contribute to the role:
In this role, you will partner with the existing SCRUM Master to coordinate all the work and SCRUM ceremonies of the Global Core Components project. You will ensure that all the information regarding the project is recorded and communicated using the Atlassian stack (Jira, Confluence), and the team is progressing and completing deliverables.
Day to day, you will follow Amway SCRUM practices to lead daily stand-up meetings, assisting to define user stories, assigning work, creating and managing visual boards, calculating delivery timeframes, and communicating with your team and the project stakeholders. There are times when you will work with the market to gain clarification on issues. You will also capture the hours of the team members’ tasks, using a Confluence page.
To accomplish this, you will be given access to all of Amway’s communication tools, as well as Jira and Confluence.
What skills and background will be important to be successful:
To be considered for this role, you will have to have prior experience working as a Project Manager, with full knowledge of the Agile Principles, associated techniques and metrics, and a willingness to learn how to become a SCRUM Master. If you have Scrum Master background or are a Certified Scrum Master, that would be a huge plus. You will also need experience using Jira and Confluence, as well as the ability to coach others. You’ll also need to have at least a Bachelor’s degree. Having planning and budgeting experience is a definite plus.
