  • Run sprint planning sessions so that the team always understands the current committed work, and sprint review meetings for stakeholders.
  • Run backlog elaboration sessions with the team to ensure there is always a suitable depth of stories in the backlog that the team can take on in the next sprint.
  • Assess the value of new stories suggested by people across the business, expand the content to clearly express what is required and prioritise them in the backlog.
What we are looking for:
  • Strong experience of retail EPOS systems and the EPOS marketplace - an EPOS expert
