Scrum Master Amsterdam

Zoover is the largest hotel and travel rating portal in the Netherlands. With 3.2 million ratings, 400,000 hotels and camp sites as well as 900,000 travel tips, our Zoover platform makes finding the perfect holiday a cinch for holidaymakers.

Currently, we are at an exciting transformation period, working towards becoming a booking platform for package holidays. This means a lot of hard work and dedication, as well as a lot of opportunities!

We are data-driven and results-oriented, following strict Agile and Lean Principles. To facilitate our purposes, we have created two “Super-teams”. These are a network of colleagues working together on the same value chain with a common purpose and continuous synchronisation. The multi-disciplinary Scrum team is a part of the Super-team as well as different stakeholders from all departments of the organisation.

As our Scrum Master, you would be facilitating these two super-teams, including the different stakeholders involved from across the organisation, with the goal to reach results while continuously improve our process.

Your tasks:

  • Guide and coach the Super-teams within Zoover to live according to the Agile Mindset. 
  • Support the Super-teams to maximize value while having fun at work. 
  • Build an effective, trusting and safe environment where conflicts are resolved in a healthy way and self-organization can emerge. 
  • Promote transparency and collaboration within the Super-teams. 
  • Support the Super-teams to remove impediments at the same time guide people to strengthen their network connections within the organization. 
  • Contribute to organizational change and act as a Change Agent. 
  • Work closely with other Zoover leaders. 
  • Find appropriate methods and tools to help improving agility, both at the team and the organizational level.

  • You act as role model regarding agile values, servant leadership and continuous improvement. 
  • You love what you do and enjoy collaborating with other passionate Scrum Masters in our agile community.
  • You enjoy systemic thinking and have experiences with tools that help with that (e.g. causal-loop diagrams, impact mapping). 
  • You constantly improve yourself, and at the same time enjoy sharing your knowledge with others (e.g. mentoring, actively participating or organizing Communities of Practice, attend (un-)conferences and meetups). 

Preferred skills:
