Scrum Master, Senior

The Charleston Digital Hub of Booz Allen Hamilton is seeking qualified candidates for a Scrum Master in the Charleston, SC area. 

The Charleston Digital Hub is a software development hub of Booz Allen that operates and executes much like a fast-paced startup within the larger organization. We thrive in a high-energy, open office atmosphere that fosters creativity and innovation. We wake up in the morning ready to have fun and talk tech. We have dogs in the office, ping pong in the breakroom, and t-shirts trump ties, but most importantly - we focus on surrounding our team members with people who are enthusiastic about working, learning, and growing, and most importantly, having fun together!
