  • While we expect some manual testing for some of the time you should have an automation-focused approach to QA activities.
  • You will have regular opportunities to collaborate with other QA colleagues to work on cross-product projects and larger QA initiatives to ensure high levels of quality across all our projects.
  • Ideally you have a passion for metrics and data-driven approaches to improving software quality as well as assessing the risks and vulnerabilities of software with low coverage levels.
  • We encourage a culture of regular process improvement and exploration of new QA technologies, frameworks, tools and practices – your ideas and experience will be welcome!
  • You should be familiar with various techniques to investigate and help development teams to diagnose, monitor and resolve production incidents (e.g. log analysis, Google Analytics, NewRelic, Elastic, Sentry or similar).
