Scrum Master
Develop and nurture an environment that creates high-performing team dynamics.

Macro-Eyes is recruiting a Scrum Master to coach a geographically distributed team in lean and agile techniques, helping us draw more value from existing resources and increase access to lifesaving care globally without increasing cost.

This dynamic role requires flexibility and persistence. Our ideal Scrum Master deeply understands different scrum formats and knows how to apply which at the right time for a fast-paced, fluid team. You will develop and nurture an environment that creates high-performing team dynamics, continuous flow, and relentless improvement.

The Scrum Master will report to the Chief Engineer and act as a high-level agile coach across the organization. You will support Program Managers in defining the final vision of the product for each deployment of our technology in a variety of global settings, then strive to achieve that vision.

  • Lead and coach the team in implementing Scrum and following its principles, focusing on the needs of the team and our customers with the goal of achieving results in line with Macro-Eyes values, principles, and business objectives.
  • Help the team understand Scrum and principles of self-organization, coaching our talented team to make their own decisions about their work, estimate their own work, and to have a strong willingness to cooperate to achieve a common purpose through release goals, sprint goals and team goals.
  • Plan of Scrum implementations in the organization. You will be responsible for managing impediments, eliminate waste, managing the process, managing the team's health, and managing the culture.
  • Implement changes to increase the productivity of the Scrum team. You know how to motivate and influence at different levels within Macro-Eyes.
  • Navigate conflict to address unproductive attitudes and dysfunctional behaviors. You can recognize team conflict in an early stage, can apply different activities to resolve it, and know strategies for preventing conflict.
  • Partner with the Product Manager to assist in the release of a product and help the team refine existing products and develop new products.
  • 1-2 years of experience in a similar role.
  • Scrum Master certification.
  • A strong facilitator of meetings, decision-making, and change.

ADDITIONAL JOB REQUIREMENTS

What we’ll ask of you:

  • Be flexible, optimistic and persistent.
  • Take a task and run with it. There’s not a lot of hierarchy, and everybody organically occupies the space they’re given to get something done.
  • Speak up. We all learn every day. We constantly figure out things we’ve never done before. Ask for help, say when you need something.
  • Be forthcoming and accountable. About time, scope, questions, needs, options, deliverables.
  • Be nice to work with. Nothing extraordinary was ever achieved alone.

What you need to bring:

  • Comfortable working with a small team in a fast-paced, collaborative environment with limited structure.
  • Experience working on dynamic cross-functional teams.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills.
  • Energy, boundless curiosity, open-mindedness.
  • Care to do something right for the sake of doing it right.
  • Willingness to learn and grow.
  • Respect for audiences and users. Willingness to step into someone else’s shoes (and the imagination to do so).

Why you want to work with us:

  • We develop technology and products that save lives and help organizations do more with fewer resources — and we break new ground in AI by creating systems that can learn in some of the most challenging environments on earth: real-world impact and state-of-the-art science.
  • We are rapidly growing — globally — and engaged in many of the most important issues of our time.
  • Being part of Macro-Eyes is rich in opportunity.
  • You get the chance to shape the world, bend it towards progress!
  • You get to work with an amazing group of people.
  • You can work from almost anywhere, although less than 6 hours from EST tends to be optimal.
  • This role will be remote with the freedom to choose how and when to work. Macro-Eyes was fully remote before COVID-19 and we expect to continue to be a fully remote team. US-based candidates are preferred. You will have access to your choice of hardware and a travel budget to interact with the distributed team in person. Macro-Eyes has a rigorously horizontal culture that values diversity of every kind.
