Innovation Scrum Master

You are passionate about health & wellness and crave for the opportunity to make a real impact in people's lives. You have an entrepreneurial spirit, who likes to challenge the status quo, envision new possibilities and develop alternative ways of solving consumer needs. You have deep expertise in your field, but often your big contributions come from your ability to see the big picture.

Pharmavite is looking for innovation leaders like you. It's an amazing time to join Pharmavite as we continue shaping the future of nutrition with the purpose of bringing the gift of health to life. To accelerate our innovation efforts, we are looking for an Innovation ScrumMaster to join our internal start-up innovation team responsible for developing transformational innovation solutions for Pharmavite.

The Innovation ScrumMaster will be a core member of a small, agile cross-functional innovation team dedicated to reinventing the way that Pharmavite develops innovation. With an entrepreneurial, experimental, iterative mindset, this team will act like a start-up within the company and will be responsible for creating solutions where the market context involves high uncertainty.

This team will be responsible for unveiling consumer needs and developing solutions, not just products or technologies, to meet these needs in a compelling and differentiated way. This team will develop solutions internally or via external partnerships and will optimize them by embracing rapid in-market learning and iterations.

Innovations' philosophy: 'THINK BIG. START SMALL. SCALE FAST."


What You Will Bring:

  • Experience in Lean Startup model of build-test-learn
  • Strong project management skills, with proven experience working with cross-functional teams in taking products from idea through launch
  • Strong influencing skills, with proven ability to remove obstacles that block productivity

  • Great facilitating skills, to be able to keep the innovation team focused on its goals while fostering collaboration and guide members toward resolutions
  • Creates methods to drive transparency of the project within the team and with collaborators and stakeholders in the organization
  • Builds a safe and trusting environment where conflicts can be managed in a healthy way without fear of blame
  • Demonstrates an agile mindset of developing, testing, iterating, and preference for being scrappy and learning in real-life rather than creating decks
  • Interested in empathizing with consumers and curiosity for solving real consumer products
  • Understanding of front-end innovation of consumer products
  • Passion for teaching/coaching/transforming
  • Requires a four-year college or university degree or its equivalent
  • Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)
  • PPM certification is a plus
  • Requires a minimum of 6 years of experience in project management post-college, with a minimum of 2 years applying Scrum and Agile in consumer products
  • Experience working in a start-up environment is required
  • Experience working in nutrition, food or beverage are preferred

  • Competitive salary with a bonus program
