Entry Level SCRUM Master at FastCAP Systems

FastCAP Systems, a dynamic and growing MIT start-up, is looking for a full-time entry-level SCRUM Master.

We are not a software company! We are actually the opposite of one as we work with nanomaterials to create energy storage devices. But this is not stopping us from using Agile Project management with great success. As the number of SCRUM teams at FastCAP is growing fast, we want to support this growth with dedicated SCRUM Masters.

We offer a salary of $60,000 per year, and a robust benefits package including health, dental, vision, FSA, life insurance, 401k, and three weeks of paid time off plus one week for year-end vacation.

This entry level position requires at least one year experience working in an agile management environment (SCRUM/Kanban), preferably as a SCRUM Master.

There will be lots of opportunities for training and career advancement. We take people development very seriously!

No specific education level is required. We care more about attitude than schooling. As a SCRUM Master you will be the keeper of our culture, rituals and language.

The major duties of this job will involve much structure, will require attention to detail, and must be done correctly. At the same time job tasks will vary rather than be repetitive and will require a faster-than-average pace in order to complete work requirements. The job has more of a people orientation rather than technical orientation. The position may be integral to collaborative or teamwork in the organization and in satisfying internal customers. This job has a hands-on focus, where productivity is gained through individual accomplishments. This job is a source of initiatives within a clearly structured and defined framework of responsibility. We will ensure that the job is well-structured, and will provide guidance and support especially when new job tasks fall outside of traditional boundaries.
