Columbus, Ohio
12 Month+ Contract

Supply Chain -
Scrum Master for existing teams in our Supply Chain space. This team handles the technology that our distribution center utilizes. This team has been together for a while and have been trying to do some agile practices on their own. They will be getting an agile coach that the scrum master will work side-by-side with to complete the agile transformation. Forecasting and planning is critical and complex in this team, so having that skill is a must. We

Nexus -
We have a very large project kicking off in November that will utilize our version of a scaled agile framework. We're mixing a bit of Nexus in with SAFe. This role assists in the coordination of the work across various agile teams (those teams already have scrum masters). Works to manage the dependencies and ensure that planning across teams is meeting the goals set at the program level. This role also helps to ensure that teams are following good agile practices. Candidates that have experience as a Release Train Engineer will understand the ask of this role. This role will be working at the project level doing coordination and planning work across many teams. They will not be working as a scrum master on a particular team.

Corporate Apps -
This will be two teams that have not really started their agile journey yet. The work that they do is support the applications of our organization, such as Office 365, Voicemail, Jira, etc. The work is very different than traditional development. This team also works with very high-ranking stakeholders. These teams have been together for a while but are not necessarily doing any agile practices. They will be getting an agile coach that the scrum master will work side-by-side with to complete the agile transformation. The work of these teams is largely unplanned, so we are looking for someone that has flexibility, adaptability, and patience.

Agile Coach -
We have a need to move our agile transformation along a bit faster than we are moving. We are looking for an additional experienced coach to help stand up a few teams to our agile practices. We already have identified practices and have a prescribed way of transformation a team, so we are just looking for an individual that loves to get a team started. Each transformation usually takes 4-6 months and then the coach will move on to the next team in the roadmap. This candidate should come with coaching experience. This means that they have started teams from scratch previously. This is not the same type of coaching that a scrum master provides. This is likely a person that has been a scrum master for a number of years and is now helping new teams get started. This coach will work side-by-side with the scrum master on the team as well. We do anticipate that we will only have this need for approximately 12 months.
