Scrum Master

Hawkins Point Partners is seeking a hybrid Senior Infrastructure Project Manager/ Scrum master to run an Agile Next Generation Conference Room Project for our Waltham based client. The successful candidate for this role will have experience running Agile, Infrastructure projects using Jira. This will be a fast-paced, worldwide project, impacting 330 conference rooms worldwide. The candidate will be working with a team that consists of a/v engineers, user experience experts, business analysts, a product manager, networking engineers, facilities, and other roles as needed. 

The mandate for the Next Generation Conference Room Project is to streamline conference room meetings by providing users with a simplified experience. As a Skype shop, the technologies selected and deployed will be Skype-enabled, allowing users to leverage their current knowledge of Skype to schedule and hold conference room meetings. 

The Microsoft Surface Hub is a key component to this strategy. As a collaborative tool, the Surface Hub allows users to start a meeting with a simple touch of the screen to start a meeting complete with audio and video enabled. Users can present on the Surface Hub wirelessly using their laptops. For rooms that don’t require the sophistication of a Surface Hub, we are also investigating traditional monitors controlled by the Polycom Trio. For Video conferencing, we are piloting the Polycom Group 500 Series.
