VIEW JOBS 6/21/2018 12:00:00 AM 2018-09-19T00:00 Scrum Master Location: Cincinnati This is open to both full-time and contract opportunities Do you have a passion for AGILE? Centric Consulting is hiring Scrum Masters for our Cincinnati office. We are looking for seasoned professionals looking to make an impact - both with clients and in their personal career. What You'll Do as a Scrum Master You will lead one or more scrum teams. You will facilitate all Agile ceremonies including sprint planning, stand-ups, backlog refinement, sprint-close, etc. You will support the Product Owner and Development Team in meeting project goals. You will identify and eliminate obstacles that prevent the team from achieving their goals and ensure effective communication within/across Project teams. What You'll Bring Creating unmatched experiences, for both clients and employees, is what we do. You should revel in doing the unexpected and extraordinary for others. Consulting experience is strongly preferred. That said, you will also be considered if you have a strong industry background, particularly Financial Services, Healthcare or Pharmaceuticals. We want someone who likes to solve problems. Clients don't come to us when the problem is easy. You should enjoy taking on the hard stuff. And because we work with clients, excellent communication skills are important – both written and verbal. Initiative is important. We don't hand hold – you should be comfortable working independently in an entrepreneurial environment. That said, collaboration is equally important. Our Boston team and other consultants at Centric will give you an amazing support system. You will lean on them daily. Last, but not least, you will need to be solid Scrum Master. We are looking for people with a track record of delivering successful agile projects in a consulting environment. Why Centric? * Growth opportunities – As a mid-size firm, there is more flexibility when it comes to career paths. Figure out what you want to do, and we'll figure out how to get you there. * Special culture – Hands down, the people are the best part of Centric. But you shouldn't take our word on it – check us out on Glassdoor, Facebook or Twitter to get a glimpse inside what makes us different. * Prefer to contract? * Contractor friendly environment – Contractors are an important part of our Centric family and we treat them as such. You will find that our policies and practices make it easy for you to contract with us. * Benefits eligibility – As a W2T temporary employee, you are eligible for Centric's W2T benefits package which includes medical and dental coverage. We are also open to Corp to Corp arrangements (no benefits in that case, however). * Full-time potential – Many of our full-time employees originally started as contractors. If that's something you are interested in, we can explore those options. That said, if you want to remain a contractor that's fine too. We are flexible! Centric believes the best solutions come from diverse teams. We strive to have an environment where everyone has an opportunity to be successful regardless of their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, military or veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity.
