Our work includes hardware- and software preparation of testing, test execution and processing of measurement data. 


The Challenge
Are you an experienced Scrum Master ready to take on the challenge of guiding newly formed teams in agile methodologies? Our labs are continuously expanding and adapting, and we need to utilize state-of-the-art methods to test and verify next-generation cars in an efficient and correct manner. We work closely together to develop the testing of electric machines, electric drivelines, transmissions, inverters, and on-board chargers. The designs are changing at a rapid pace and we as teams need to be agile and at the same time deliver repeatable and precise data. There are great possibilities for new collaborations going forward.


Your Contribution

You will also:

  • Support the team’s agile ways of working like Scrum ceremonies, Kanban, Definition-of-Done, WIP limits, continuous improvements etc.
  • Lead team efforts in continuous improvement by helping the team in retrospectives and take responsibility for their improvement actions.
  • Facilitate all team meetings like the daily stand-up, iteration planning, demo and retrospective.
  • Communicate with management and outside stakeholders to protect the team from uncontrolled injection of work.
  • Facilitate preparation and readiness for ART ceremonies like PI Planning, System Demos and the Inspect and Adapt.

You are fluent in English (spoken and written) and you have the ability to lead teams, apply a holistic and strategic approach, motivate and create confidence in the team.
