  • Help the team to achieve higher levels of Scrum maturity
  • Use scaling techniques to help the cooperation between teams and improve the organizational agility together with the other scrum masters
  • Support team members to improve individual performance and maintain motivation levels
  • Facilitate discussions and support conflict resolution
  • Maintain professional and technical knowledge by attending educational workshops, reading professional publications and participating in professional societies
  • Contribute to the EPAM Agile community by sharing best practices and other relevant information with peers across teams
  • Be able to approach others with empathy and understand multiple aspects of demanding situations
