Project Manager / Scrum Master Description

Job #: 57692
EPAM is committed to providing our global team of 36,700+ EPAMers with inspiring careers from day one. EPAMers lead with passion and honesty and think creatively. Our people are the source of our success and we value collaboration, try to always understand our customers’ business, and strive for the highest standards of excellence.

No matter where you are located, you’ll join a dedicated, diverse community that will help you discover your fullest potential.


We are on a journey towards Agile and need you to be well-versed in the scrum approach to development – comfortable working in partnership with our product owners to create a delivery roadmap that responds to their vision of product evolution. You manage expectations based on a realistic appraisal of velocity, but you have a sense of urgency. You hold your team accountable to operate at their best and in doing so you lead by example.

You also appreciate that the world being what it is, occasional projects impose tight constraints with little opportunity for negotiating scope and where true scrum is not possible; you have the ability to dovetail aspiration and ambition with what is realistically possible, through calm negotiation, open dialogue and above all, hand-on risk and issue management.
