Scrum Master

| Bellevue
About Us:
At DreamBox, we believe all children can excel at learning, no matter where they start, where they live, or who they are. Along with district administrators, teachers, principals, and parents, we are dedicated to helping children realize their potential. Yet every child must be challenged, encouraged, and engaged in an individual way.
That’s why we developed our revolutionary Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ technology, and combined it with a rigorous curriculum and an engaging game-like environment, to change the learning paradigm. If you are interested in learning more, take a look at this recent efficacy article published by Business Wire.
About the Role:
Our technology teams create exciting and interactive software to support student growth and learning and empower educators to influence the lives of their students. We are looking for a ScrumMaster to help support our development teams in the agile discipline. We are looking for an agile professional who is equally passionate about developing cohesive scrum teams and delivering against tough timelines.
This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a mid size, high energy, rapidly growing company at an exciting time in the development of EdTech. Check us out at DreamBox.com and see what our students and educators think on twitter.
