Scrum Master

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. But for every situation, Aviva is there to defy uncertainty and to make things simple and keep customers protected. Joining as Scrum Master you’ll have a vital role to play.

We are currently recruiting for an experienced Scrum Master to join our Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) global team based in Shoreditch. We have 7 agile Scrum teams working across London, Bristol, Singapore and India on a scaled Scrum (Nexus) model. The teams each have a unique identity and are part of the global team, learning and supporting each other through the delivery of Aviva’s global digital strategy.

The Scrum Master is responsible for facilitating of the day to day running of an Agile team and ensuring that progress is visible to all key stakeholders. They ensure that the team functions as effectively as possible and protects the team from external impacts. This is a facilitative leadership role, and the role holder should seek to promote self-organisation within the team, and work collaboratively with team members to optimise its output and achieve the defined Sprint and delivery goals rather than acting as an authority and coordinator.

There is a strong focus on global collaboration with the other Scrum teams across the globe to ensure all teams deliver the single software increment by the end of the sprint to a high standard for the Product Owner.

The successful Scrum Master should have experience of enterprise CMS tools although AEM specific experience is not essential. They will have excellent communication and stakeholder management skills, combined with a solid understanding of Agile values and principles. A good knowledge of Scrum is essential and Scrum certification, Jira experience, knowledge of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery is preferable.

We offer a competitive salary and fantastic benefits, including excellent pension and bonus potential, as well as generous annual leave.

We’re here to free people from the fear of uncertainty. Our insurance, savings and investment products help some 31 million customers enjoy life today, knowing that tomorrow is covered. And we definitely know how to look after our own people. If you love doing a great job to improve things for customers, you’ll be at home here. Help us build a future to be proud of and get ready to fulfil your potential with Aviva.

One of Aviva’s core values is Care More, and this is brought to life through the flexible ways we like to work. This may include working from home some of the time, or flexible work schedules to accommodate parent and carer responsibilities, further studies and hobbies.

Bring to Aviva what makes you different and we’ll support you to do the best work of your life. We encourage applications from everyone who wants to help us achieve our purpose of helping our customers to Defy Uncertainty.
