ScrumMaster and Scrum coach at Zuora
Redwood City, CA 94065
January 2009-May 2012
I coached the company's engineering department through a transition to Scrum. The company's six development teams included people in California and Beijing, which required creativity around scheduling and using communication tools effectively. When I began the contract, the company had a waterfall process, but wanted to use Scrum because they had difficulty getting releases out on time, with acceptable quality. By the end of my contract, they were generating releases routinely every three weeks.

ScrumMaster at StarCite
Santa Clara, CA 95054
June 2006-June 2008
I served as ScrumMaster for Web application, data warehouse, and Business-Intelligence development projects. These projects involved personnel in California, the East Coast of the US, and Shanghai, so one of the key challenges was implementing a Scrum process with such widely-distributed team members. We found effective ways of doing this, using various tools and scheduling techniques. I also assisted other teams in the company in their migration to Scrum.
