Manager Notes:
Team is working on a customer facing apps called Express Connect. They need someone who knows Agile, runs ceremonies, and is Senior or Expert level. Team has been in place for about a year and they needs someone that can come in and coach the team. Know what needs to get done and how to get team moving in Agile practice they are using. Should be able to understand HOW to do Scrum practices but also knowing the WHY. Large Enterprise environment experience required. Stay away from someone who has been a PM and then changed to a Scrum Master in last 2 years. PMI or Agile Certified Practitioner certs would be a PLUS.
