I am an agile coach and product owner of a Device Activation Backend team. I have been working on agile and lean methodologies from 2009. I was an active member of the IT Agile transition organization dedicated to transforming Nokia IT to an agile organization. I have worked as a scrum master for more than 2 years and for 3 different teams. I have also coached agile teams and mangers about Agile, Scrum and Kaizen; worked in Scrum, Kanban and Scrumban methodologies and attended external workshops on agile, lean and coaching. During coaching I do value-stream mapping, 5 Why’s, etc.

My current project is an offshore-onsite model, working now as a product owner and coaching the scrum master at offshore. As a product owner I create a product vision, release plan, product roadmap and product backlog also create requirements, user stories and acceptance criterias for the team. I am also involved technically with the team and do quality assurance and help in the product architecture, concepting and design.

I have 9 years’ experience in IT industry starting as a webMethods integration consultant, later I moved on to become an agile developer and scrum master working with Clojure and MySQL on Linux backend servers on IntelliJ. I have experience in Hudson, continuous integration jobs. I believe quality assurance should be done at the beginning of the development and not at the end and work in TDD methodology by creating acceptance and behavior test cases. I have worked in Oracle RDBMS, Subversion, REST, EDI, flat files, xml, UNIX, JMeter and Tableau software. I also know a little about GIT and Gerrit.

I am also very enthusiastic to learn more and proactive in improving ways of working to ensure productivity and quality of customer’s product. I have worked for international clients on different time zones.
