Scrum Master

Beyond Essential Systems
  • Full time or part time option
  • 8 month maternity leave contract

A bit about us...

Here at Beyond Essential Systems (BES) we make awesome technology and put it to good use in the world. Our aim is to improve decision making in low resource settings by providing meaningful data that results in well informed decisions, and better outcomes for individuals. Our services and products have impact across health, education, supply chain and disaster management, and we are proud to be able to provide innovative and collaborative solutions, while working closely with local partners in the Asia / Pacific region.

About the role

As a Scrum Master in the BES team, you’ll be working on projects that directly impact our overall mission. Our software suite includes Tupaia and Tamanu and we also implement and support mSupply and DHIS2 systems, all of which you’ll contribute to.

Currently, our team is advancing our software to support the COVID-19 response for vulnerable populations in the Pacific, in particular vaccine registration, lab test results management with a patient portal, and mapping of medical supplies.

Day to day, you will:

  • Organise and facilitate team meetings as needed
  • Foster intra and inter-team communication to remove potential barriers
  • Help the team to identify and manage constraints and risks
  • Foster a culture of collective ownership and accountability
  • Promote core principles of Agile
  • Maintain and publishing agreed team metrics
  • Work with the team to proactively identify, resolve or escalate anything that makes them less effective

We are a flexible bunch and are open to this role being full time or part time. This role is a parental leave position and initially contracted for 8 months.

About you

You’ll have a real connection with our purpose and will be looking for a role where your work has a meaningful influence and impact on the lives of others. You’ll be a natural collaborator with initiative and drive.

Ideally, you’ll have previous experience as a Scrum Master but there’ll be plenty of overlap with our outgoing Scrum Master so it’s also a good opportunity to learn the ropes if you are looking to transition across.

Existing skills in coaching, project management, or people management would be an advantage, as would experience in the fields of software/technology, healthcare, or international development.

What’s in it for you?

Where do we start! As well as being part of key projects and having meaningful work, we also offer:

  • Genuine work/life balance and flexibility
  • Ongoing professional development: you decide where to take your career
  • A talented, collaborative, and friendly team to work with
  • An opportunity to work for a recently accredited B Corp company

Right now, we're working remotely until restrictions ease but the office is on Nicholson St in Brunswick East - close to Lygon Street with its Cafés, restaurants and bars - and there is a big park just behind our building.
