What you'll do

Working in an Agile environment, you'll be leading the team in the ways of the Scrum, fostering collaboration and ensuring the team performs at the highest level. You'll be leading and coaching a project team to deliver great results, through the use of Agile and Scrum techniques.

We'll look to you to demonstrate:
