The purpose of this work is to optimize the work distribution process when working in an IT company using machine learning algorithms, which allows to reduce the load on the key team member - the manager, who is the master of the scrum. We consider a team in scrum according to the Takman model, highlighting 5 stages of development: formation, conflict, normalizing, executive, separation. To increase the time for micro-management within the team, it is proposed to automate routine processes using an optimization approach. It is shown that the most time-consuming part of this definition is the definition of the type of tasks. To do this, it is necessary to define the terms of reference, assign its components (tasks) to a specific type and entrust the implementation to the developer who will achieve the required result in the shortest possible time. The structure of the optimization model for the distribution of tasks between developers is considered. Preliminary classification of tasks by category, taking into account the capabilities of the team. The choice of a convolutional neural network and the use of deep machine learning for solving the classification problem has been substantiated. As the initial data when training the network at the initial stages of team development, it is proposed to use the texts of test tasks and their distribution by categories of project tasks.
