Scrummaster

Job description

Hoofddorp - You will be the Scrum Master of three squads of 5 to 6 people that are responsible for the creation of a new environment for subscription management. The new subscription environment consists of an off-the-shelf billing and subscription administration combined with custom built services that are developed using AWS native components.

You will continuously improve and stimulate the self-organizing attitude of your team, making a difference by creating a positive work environment, being ‘the voice of reason’ when the pressure is on, not being afraid of pointing out problems and seeking solutions when necessary.

The teams in our Customer Services Area aim to provide the software needed to enable customer self-service, support the work in our customer centers (500+ agents) and subscription management.
You will be part of an area growing to 50+ developers working in several squads and working with different technologies, so there’s plenty of opportunity to learn from your colleagues and to challenge yourself. We work in a scaled agile organisation using Scrum and have a You Build It, You Run It principle (aka DevOps). Within that we give the corresponding responsibility and autonomy to the teams for the products they build and run.


We offer

  • An experience-based salary.
  • 36-hour workweek.
  • 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 Amsterdam (currently we work partially from home).
  • A huge ScrumMaster Guild for knowledge sharing and inspiration.

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.
