About the Scrum Master job

The Scrum Master is a first-class communicator with people at all levels of the organisation and must foster particularly strong channels of communication and appropriate reporting with Product Owners, the Development Manager and the Delivery Manager.

By limiting distractions, the Scrum Master ensures the Scrum teams are able to maintain focus and drive towards their sprint goals and as the voice of the Scrum team acts as an escalation point to the outside world.
