Here’s the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together

As a Scrum Master for TELUS Digital, you’ll be responsible for facilitating the product development process within the Mobility Outcome team. Your key drivers will be enabling the product team to meet its objectives and timelines by helping to write user stories, and development tickets, and help the team coordinate their inputs and outputs. You will lead agile ceremonies, aid in the removal of impediments and buffer the team from distracting influences. You will provide consistent communication and visibility into the project to our product owner and help manage risks to keep the project moving forward. You will employ agile and lean methodologies to support the continuous improvement efforts of our squads; your focus will be on driving outcomes for the team and helping communicate the status of those outcomes to the broader team.
