UCAS, Scrum Master
May 2013 - October 2013, Cheltenham, UK, United Kingdom
Contract Scrum Master and software engineer working on Teacher Training Application for 2014. I have coached the team in its use of Scrum and agile methodologies, including topics such as prioritizing stories, holding retrospectives to drive improvement and regularly grooming the product backlog.
Specific Media, Scrum Master
November 2011 - May 2013, Cardiff, UK, United Kingdom
At Specific Media, I started as a Scrum team member, before being asked by the team to take over the Scrum Master role, and to provide coaching to team members on Scrum practices.
I was a major contributor to the wider improvement program of Specific Media's approach to Scrum and agile methodologies, including chairing a weekly scrum community of practice.
Monitise, Java Team Leader
May 2011 - November 2012, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom
At Monitise I was a Java Team Leader, following a process operating roughly within the Scrum framework. When I moved to a new project, I pushed for a more revolutionary commitment to Scrum practices, including working in iterative and incremental development cycles, and working at a sustainable pace. The project saw a marked increase in productivity and developer satisfaction, but ultimately, the client could not commit to even two week iterations, so the approach was abandoned after one release cycle.
