What is a Scrum Developer?
The name “Scrum Developer” can be a little confusing. It is left-over from Scrum’s origins in IT and software development. A Scrum Developer is simply someone who works on a Scrum team. Scrum Developers work on the project. They are the ‘doers’ rather than the ‘organisers’.

About This Role
The Role of Scrum Developer
Why “Scrum Developer”?
Scrum practices began in the software development sector in the 1980s. Over the following decades, the popularity and widespread use of Scrum has grown rapidly into all other sectors of business and industry.
The name “Scrum Developer” has hung around from the early days in IT, but it simply refers to someone who works on a project as part of a Scrum team.
Scrum Developer Responsibilities
- The primary responsibility of any Scrum Developer is to work on the deliverables of a project. The Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner take more of a project management role within the team, whereas the Scrum Developers are active project team members, or ‘doers’.
- Scrum Developers present their progress to the Scrum Product Owner at sprint review meetings.
- Scrum Developers must also have a strong understanding of Scrum Processes and how they are applied to a project.
