Viby (Agile Metoder)


Are you an experienced scrum master, project manager or leader ready to take the next step? We are looking for a talented and experienced scrum master in one of our Agile Release Trains (ART) in Arla. Join our team of highly skilled people and professionals working truly agile across Arla locations and teams. We are working in Production IT and cover all IT solutions that support the production at our 60 dairy sites across the world.


The job


We go to work every day with the mission of standardizing and digitalizing IT across all our dairy sites, and we cover Automation IT, MES, MII integration, SAP and cloud solutions. As our new Scrum Master you will be joining our team with colleagues located in Denmark, Poland and UK and you will be supporting on train as well as on team level.


As a Scrum Master you empower 1-3 of the teams working with MES and SAP solutions. Together with 2 other scrum masters in the production area you will be a key player facilitating the agile processes by working closely together with team members, Product Owner, Release Train Architect, Release Train Engineer and our stakeholders at the dairies.


More specifically, your responsibility includes:

  • Facilitate the daily scrum meeting – focusing on eliminating impediments and ensuring an effective agile process
  • Ensure user stories are well defined and understandable for the team members and bring value to the objectives
  • Coach the team and ensure truly agile thinking and approach aiming for a high performance team
  • Ensure team reporting to relevant key persons
  • Participate in PI planning and demos
  • Make financial forecasts and follow up on monthly reporting

We are working very close to the business in Arla and our main stakeholders are always the dairies. We take pride in delivering great, user friendly solutions to provide the greatest value to Arla. We are a multi-national, multi-functional and very dedicated team working according to the agile SAFe framework.


Who are you?



You already have some experience as Scrum Master – preferably in an agile setup – and you have passion in IT. It would be ideal if you already have some knowledge within production IT.

Our stakeholder environment is complex, spanning different departments, countries and cultures where English is the common language.

For you to succeed in the role, it is important that you are a team player, who takes pride in facilitating the required discussion to ensure focus on creating value and solving complex dilemmas. You know that this requires persistence. You thrive when you coach your team members to perform even better and you know that the cooperation takes place with many different profiles who see things from different perspectives and communicate in different ways.

COVID-19 Notice:



We are busy producing dairy products so we can continue #fillingtheshelves and #feedingthenation. Recruiting talent to Arla thus stays one of our top priorities also during these difficult times. Necessity is the mother of invention, so we have moved to virtual hiring and onboarding processes for most of our recruitments to enable candidates and our recruitment teams to get close while respecting social distancing. If at the final stages of a recruitment, a candidate would prefer to meet in person, we take all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone's safety.
