You would like to make a difference and work together with us on our big target to get fossil free within one generation? Do you want to play a significant role in supporting the Asset Driven Business Areas within Vattenfall in accelerating the digital transformation? You are convinced that the information assets generated by our physical assets, i.e. the big data coming from our wind turbines, batteries or heating grids hold the key for improved decision making, advanced business models, optimized asset utilization and further more?

For the Analytic Solutions team, part of Vattenfall IT we are now looking for an ambitious Scrum Master (f/m/d) for Analytic Solutions for our office in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hamburg, Luleå, Trollhättan or Stockholm/ Solna.

Your Job as Scrum Master (f/m/d) for Analytic Solutions

The Analytic Solutions team designs, develops and operates IT solutions fitting to the individual demands of the large variety of engineering departments across Vattenfall to make data available, easily accessible and usable for a broad range of analytics and business intelligence purposes. We currently operate four DevOps teams targeting different parts of the organization specifically. Out of those four, the “DIS” (Distribution Intelligence System) team takes care about the Analytics Solution portfolio of the grid operator Distribution Sweden.

The DIS team is growing to meet the increasing demand in Analytics and in data driven decision making. We therefore need to constantly scale and structure the team and we will now migrate the DIS team to a two-team Scrum approach. The Scrum Master plays a central role in that scaling effort and will lead one of the two DevOps teams.

Within the team, the Scrum Master is the first contact for the team members as well as for IT and business stakeholders when it comes to organizing and structuring the work. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the Scrum Master to continuously optimize the way of working of the team which includes leading, training, advising and coaching the whole team, including the Product Owner.

Last but not least, the Scrum Master will improve the agile way of working of the whole department together with our other Scrum Masters.
