Hello, I am Magnus Dahlgren
I’m a freelance Scrum Master and Agile Coach based in London, United Kingdom.
I started out as a software developer but have been working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach in some shape or form for the past 12 years. I love helping teams deliver awesome products, supporting them and those around them in finding approaches and ways of working that work for them.
What I’ve done so far
- Magnus Dahlgren Enterprises (since 2019). Starting September 2019, I'm offering Scrum Master services on a short-term freelance basis.
- MyDrive Solutions (since 2018). In my current role as agile coach, I support several teams and am building an Agile Community of Practice.
- Hive (2017 - 2018). As a Scrum Master on a contract basis, I initiated a new team in a new product area and helped them become a productive and jelled team despite being spread across 4 timezones.
- BBC (2010 - 2017). I had the pleasure of working with several different teams around the corporation as a Scrum Master, helping them deliver services that millions of users care very passionately about.
- Ominor Ltd (2007 - 2010). I learned a lot during my time at this e-commerce agency, starting as a scrum master and ending up as a product owner.
- Pilotfish Networks (2004 - 2007). My first real job was as a Java developer back in my native Sweden. After a couple of years, I took the step to become a project manager. Soon thereafter I came across a better way of working called ’agile’ and took my Certified Scrum Master in 2007.
