Scrum Master: Bloomberg Vault

Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Feb 15, 2017 - Requisition No. 57073

You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications platforms.

As a Scrum Master on the Bloomberg Vault team, you will support three to four teams in adopting Agile/Scrum best practices and values. You'll work closely with the product owners to help ensure that feature requests, time boxes, and expectations from team members are reasonable within the Scrum framework and overall team priorities. You'll assist these teams -- who vary in experience with the Agile process -- in building a record of successful executions. You'll also collaborate with other scrum masters to ensure consistency in the implementation of Agile across the larger team and actively contribute to the growing Agile community here at Bloomberg.

You’ll need to have:

  • A Bachelor’s degree
  • 4+ years of experience managing technology projects; of which at least 2 years should be managing projects using Agile / Scrum methodologies
  • Basic understanding of business and technology concepts and terminology
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills
  • Strong facilitation and conflict management skills
  • Excellent organization and attention to detail
  • Experience using JIRA and Confluence

We’d love to see:

  • Experience transitioning teams from Waterfall to Agile
  • Experience leading infrastructure projects
  • Scrum Master Certified (CSM)
