Senior Scrum Master - Syncier Marketplace

We are Syncier, an insurtech that originated from a group of seasoned professionals of the insurance industry in Munich. Our mission is to free insurance industry from commodities and bring it into the digital age.

We as the Syncier Marketplace are a one of the main ventures of Syncier. We want to enable and master digital transformation in the insurance industry. To achieve this goal we design, develop and integrate our Syncier Marketplace for the easy usage of digital insurance services based on API technology.

Are you ready for the challenge to make this happen and write a new chapter of digitalization with us? Then our position as Scrum Master will be highly interesting for you. You will be a central part in our Marketplace team and work closely together with our newly born development and devops team.

As a Senior Scrum Master you...
  • Promote and support Scrum as defined in the Scrum Guide. Educate the team, make the team effective and be a servant-leader.
  • Organize and moderate scrum-related ceremonies: Daily stand-ups, grooming meetings, spring closure, planning and retrospectives
