Scrum Master

Montreal, QC

The Challenge


If there’s one thing that’s become clear in recent years, it’s that strong direct-to-consumer relationships are vital to the success of today’s media and entertainment companies. Just look at the recent rise in popularity of branded OTT, TVE and other digital media platforms! From Netflix and Amazon Prime to HBO GO and FXNOW, media providers are paving clear paths to end users – a trend extending beyond video into other media markets.

So, where do you fit in to the mix? As one of our Scrum Masters, not only will you lead our main product team in the continuous improvement and operation of our E2 Video Experience Platform; you will also lead a client-specific mandate to bring a music-based OTT product to market.
