Scrum Master

About the job:

We are searching for a Scrum Master to join our 17-person San Diego engineering team. Our tight-knit team combines a Scrum process with a strong testing culture, continuous integration and a (potentially unhealthy) obsession with puppies and kittens (see below re: pet-friendly office!). You’ll have a leg up if you’re passionate about healthcare and geek out on delivering an amazing and useful application.

As a Scrum Master, you will: 

  • Serve as the Scrum Master for 1–3 teams working on projects such as the implementation of NLP/Machine Learning techniques and certification of our platform for data submission to third parties on behalf of our customers
  • Facilitate sprint planning, post-sprint retrospectives, and regular backlog grooming
  • Liaise between development and dispersed product teams (with colleagues located in San Diego and Chicago)
  • Advocate for the Scrum process within the local development team and the broader organization
  • Maintain relevant metrics that enable continuous improvement and insight for the broader organization
  • Focus on fostering an inclusive community and fun culture with monthly team lunches, tech talks, and off-site activities
  • Encourage and support continuous improvement of the team, products, and processes
  • Comfortably surface problems, impediments, and dependencies during rapidly early phases to speed resolution

 You’re our dream candidate if you:

  • Are able to nurture self-organizing, high-performing teams through a servant leadership and mentorship approach
  • Have 3+ years of Agile experience in a variety of roles, preferably with Scrum
  • Are super enthusiastic about the agile/Scrum process
  • Have excellent written and spoken communication skills in English
  • Are comfortable navigating conflicts and bringing them to resolution independently, but know when to involve others
  • Know when and how to be assertive while still maintaining morale and productivity
  • Understand the software development process, particularly iterative development
  • Consider yourself a self-motivated and results-driven professional

Brownie points if you have any of the following: 

  • Experience in hospital or payer quality measurement
  • Knowledge and experience with other Agile methodologies such as Kanban or XP
  • Experience with Agile software development tools such as JIRA to provide visibility of sprint software development workflow
  • Certified Scrum Professional – Scrum Master (CSP-SM) or Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II) certification


Our benefits include: 

  • Competitive compensation, insurance, and a 401k with company match
  • Flexible work hours and days, including work-from-home opportunities
  • Community-oriented, distraction-free office in San Diego focused on innovative product development
  • A pet-friendly office (please bring your dog)
  • 19 PTO days per year
