  • Coordinate with the development team to manage sprint backlog, adjusting as necessary in response to changes in project scope or priorities.
  • Conduct regular stand-up meetings to check on progress, identify any blockers and coordinate efforts.
  • Develop and optimize planning, structure, and processes for the development team to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Act as a point of contact for developers, addressing questions or concerns and providing guidance as needed.
  • Review each developer’s output to ensure it meets quality standards and aligns with sprint goals and project objectives.
  • Conduct sprint reviews and retrospectives to reflect on successes and areas for improvement from the completed sprint, and adapt processes as necessary.
  • Coordinate with the product manager and CTO on product vision, strategy, technical issues, and potential roadblocks.
  • Review completed features alongside the product manager to ensure they meet requirements, objectives, and quality standards.
