About Us

IDBS is a leading global provider of advanced software for research and development (R&D) organizations to securely capture, manage, share and exploit structured and unstructured data.

Our customers around the globe trust us with their data, their business and their success and we enable them to get back to what they do best: science.


What helps makes our agile teams great


At IDBS, it’s our agile teams that bring everything together. Building innovative, high-quality data management software for R&D driven international companies in fast and dynamic business sectors can be challenging; but it’s our Scrum Masters who know how to channel the talent within their teams to make this happen.

As a Scrum Master at IDBS, you’ll demonstrate strong leadership skills to ensure the team never misses its release train. To do this, you’ll ensure the team have a clearly defined and prioritized backlog of requirements, that sprints are planned effectively and that blockers are removed to enable your team to focus on doing what they’re good at: developing high quality products. In a servant-leader role, you’ll be comfortable developing positive working relationships with our Development, Testing, Business Analysis, Product Management, Customer Support, Service and Sales teams to engender collaboration and ensure that each sprint is a success, both technically and commercially.

We’ll rely on your passion for agile best practices to drive our truly agile culture forward, ensuring it’s actively promoted within the wider Product Delivery team and taking on the role of an agile change champion.

Job Requirements


What we’re looking for from you


To succeed in this role, you’ll need extensive experience of working in software development teams to deliver applications for sale or as a service. A proportion of this experience must have been in leading software engineering projects, for components or applications, involving first-hand experience of the various stages of the software development life-cycle. This includes requirements engineering, architecture, design, implementation, peer review, testing, bug fixing and the support of released software. Ideally, you will have first-hand experience of parallel projects and will have ‘lived through’ several project life-cycles to tell the tale. It’s important to us that our Scrum Masters are role models – not just in how they communicate, collaborate and problem-solve but also how they demonstrate technical competence and mobilize others to succeed.

What you’ll get in return


Working in a truly agile environment, our culture is enabling and engaging. With a start-up feel, but the security of a global employer, we offer flexible career paths, interesting projects, and the opportunity to work with truly great teams – you will learn a lot from them and hopefully teach them something along the way!
