About the trainer

Mario Melo - Certified Scrum Developer Trainer

Mario began his career as a developer in 2004 and was one of the first Scrum Alliance official trainers to be awarded the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) certification in Brazil. Since 2014, he has been working as a trainer and coach in Brazil and Europe, working with clients such as Nokia, Siemens, FPF Tech, Outsystems, Energias de Portugal (EDP) and others.

Malene Jacobsen - Co-Trainer

Malene will be co-training the course with Mario. Malene is one of the few people that has never done a Waterfall project. She was first exposed to Agile and Scrum during an Advanced Computer Science course and since then it has become a natural way of thinking both in work and her private life. Malene fully lives up to the saying: ‘you don’t do Agile, you become Agile!’

Malene has significant experience in using Scrum in all rolls of a Scrum team and at a large variety of industries including manufacturing, education, finance, retail and not to mention her own private life – ask her how you plan a wedding with the Scrum framework!
