Investigo are supporting one of our long-term partners who are looking to engage two teams of consultants on an initial 3-month basis to work on a front-end modernisation/augmentation project.

  • Development plans (and reviewing and revising plans during the agreed sprint retrospectives).
  • Quality assurance and testing approach by collaborating with QA Lead.
  • Structure the engagement model between internal and external teams.
  • Engaging with senior stakeholders keeping relevant parties informed along the way.

We're looking for someone ideally with a development background or a Scrum Master who can drive development productivity including ensuring development team have full development environment access along with clear tasks and deliverables to achieve the project within the 3-month deadline. Any recent/relevant certifications are a bonus but are not required for this role.

This is a true statement of work engagement which will be paid on deliverables that will be set by the Scrum Master and agreed with the client.
