Are you an exceptional leader with a passion for creating software to build the next generation high-speed science network for cutting edge scientific advancements? If so, consider joining Berkeley Lab's Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) - currently the fastest science network in the world! Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is seeking an experienced Scrum Master to help advance our software development efforts in the Scientific Networking Division.
We're a dynamic organization, highly-motivated and focused on results. Our mission is to accelerate science by delivering unparalleled networking capabilities, tools and innovations. As an organization, we are small enough to be agile, but large enough to offer rewarding challenges on a global scale. ESnet provides innovative networking and collaborative services to national research laboratories and other Department of Energy (DOE) sites, connecting them to research and education networks worldwide.
In this exciting role, you are the go-to person for applying scrum to produce high-quality work. You'll help create self-organizing teams that are flexible and productive during sprints. You will oversee project timelines and split up tasks, so team members are not overwhelmed with too many responsibilities at once. As the Scrum Master, you will work with Product Owners, connecting them to the Scrum team and providing guidance on effective cooperation.
What You Will Do:
As part of the ESnet Project Management Office, lead multiple scrum teams in using Agile methodology and scrum practices.
Manage each project's scope and timeline to deliver products on time and to a high standard of quality.
Facilitate internal communication and effective collaboration.
Be the point of contact for external communications (e.g. from customers or stakeholders).
This is a full-time, career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work may be performed on-site, hybrid, full-time telework or remote modes. Work must be performed within the United States.

In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
