The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME), an education non-profit, seeks a full-time employee to join our services team, as Scrum Master and SaaS Project Manager, supporting our service partners and product team. As an organization ISKME seeks to make education available to all, breaking down barriers to learning through open access digital libraries, professional learning, and educational research studies. The chosen candidate will join our team of developers, product owners, project managers, designers, and librarian staff to ensure that our partner libraries are built in alignment with our organizational purpose and within our prescribed scrum practices.

In this hybrid position, the candidate will bring additional field insights to the team and convey new feature requests to Product Owner (PO).
