About the role

We are looking for a Junior Tester to provide QA and contribute to our testing processes. You will need a hands-on approach, working closely with our design, development, data science and customer teams to help define, plan and execute test cases across multiple projects and product versions.

Your role will include cross-browser/device testing, specification of acceptance criteria and test cases during project planning, and ownership of tickets throughout the sprint process. Ideally, you will have experience of automated testing which you can use to help expand our testing framework and use to implement testing of our systems.

The person we’re looking for

Fundamentally we want someone who is smart and can get stuff done, it may sound clichéd but we would much prefer to hire someone who is talented and allow them to train and gain experience, than to hire someone with all the points checked off but who has the wrong attitude.

If you are willing (and more importantly, wanting) to learn and get on with being a part of a growing team, and are excited about helping us to maintain and improve the quality of the excellent work we do then we want to hear from you.

Tracking and monitoring live system performance to provide early warning of potential issues.

Skills and experience required

Understanding of web-based technologies and testing web applications.
