Scrum Master - AD.nl | HLN.be

Job description

Rotterdam - As a Scrum Master for the Freemium Area, you will work on team building and team spirit, ensuring a strong collaboration between team members. You are the guardian of the scrum process and have a (digital) third eye for what the teams need in order to meet the sprint goals and to improve a little every day. You are an agile chameleon; facilitator, advisor, coach, you got it all and your agile mindset and skillset allow you to adapt seamlessly between all these roles. 

On a daily basis, our content reaches millions of users, making DPG Media the biggest media house of The Netherlands and Belgium. We have built a white-label platform for web and app which serves our 2 biggest national news brands AD.nl and HLN.be, as well as 8 regional brands in the Netherlands and Belgium. 

About the team

You will be part of two cross-functional and agile development teams that consist of people from the Netherlands and Belgium. We speak Dutch to communicate with each other in the team and sometimes English with other teams. Our home base is our Rotterdam office - located right next to Rotterdam Central Station - and close to our editorial staff and other digital teams that work on this platform. Currently, we embrace a hybrid working model. We are one/two days per week in the office, the rest we work from home.

What you’ll be doing

  • Facilitate the scrum rituals such as stand-ups, refinements and retrospectives

  • Help the PO’s and other area members to getting things done

  • Work continuously to improve and stimulate the self-organizing attitude of your teams

  • Make a difference by creating a positive work environment, even when the pressure is on

  • Always seek for ways to improve the area and all its members (including PO’s, Area Manager and teams)

We offer

  • An experience-based salary.

  • 36-hour work week.

  • 12% personal choice budget (of which 8% is holiday allowance).

  • Participation in the profit sharing arrangement.

  • Personal development opportunities such as education, training and certificates.

  • Location in Rotterdam (currently we work partially from home).

  • A huge Scrum Master Guild for knowledge sharing and inspiration.

Even more reasons to work at DPG Media

At DPG Media, we work for more than 90 strong news brands, magazines, television shows, radio stations, and online services such as Qmusic, NU.nl, Tweakers, Libelle, and VTM. Although we look like a media group, we are really a tech company. We get digital transformation done.

We offer a high-performing tech workplace where we treasure freedom, from how you find solutions to choosing your path. Feel free to be an entrepreneur, an apprentice, a team player, and, of course, to be you. We welcome everyone to apply, whatever your background may be. A great bunch of smart colleagues awaits you and are eager for you to join the team, whether that be a project team, a pub quiz team, or a sports team.
