Careers with Version 1 in London
In this digital-first time of remote working Version 1 London continues to pioneer transformative IT solutions for global brands that drive significant, sustained customer success.
Are you interested in making a difference with technology? We make differences. Big ones, and small ones. We use cutting-edge, powerful IT to help our customers drive the change they aspire to achieve. We are more than just another IT services company, though – we are leaders in implementing and supporting Oracle, Microsoft and AWS technologies. With almost 25 years of experience, we are trusted by global brands to deliver IT solutions that drive customer success. Our greatest strength is balance in our efforts to achieve Customer Success, Empowered People and a Strong Organisation, underpinned by a commitment to our Core Values. We believe this is what makes Version 1 different and more importantly, our employees agree; we were delighted to have been officially recognised as a Best Large Workplace in Tech in the UK for the last 2 years. Whilst Version 1 is a great and happy place to work, it’s not an easy place to work. Version 1 is rewarding with plenty of room for growth, but it is also challenging and will test your skills to ensure you get the most from your role so that you always feel that your career is progressing. If this sounds appealing to you, you could be a good culture fit.

Life as a Version 1 London Employee
How did you get into the role of a Scrum Master?
I’ve been working in IT for around 12 years after attending University as a mature student, whilst running a Plastering business at the same time! Starting out as a Web Application Developer in 2008, I moved on to become a team leader and soon after a Scrum Master. From there I took a role as a Development Manager for a few years. I missed working with Scrum teams and so I moved into Agile Coaching before taking my current role with Version 1 as a Scrum Master.
Describe your average day as Scrum Master at Version 1?
In our current project, I am Scrum Master with two teams, working in two week sprints. I facilitate Scrum events, coach, teach, help, and anything else that is needed to motivate the team to deliver and to grow. Our Product Owner is also our customer and I spend much of my time working with her, coaching her and helping with the backlog. Our team is distributed and so our working hours are flexible as long as we can cover core hours when the whole team can be together.
What advice would you give to someone looking to become a Scrum Master?
I think a technical background helps in my role but it is not mandatory, you do need to be a people person, caring about your team and believing in their success more than your own. You also need to be passionate about what you are doing if you want people to listen.
