£45,000 - £ 57,293

Posting End Date: 30/07/2019

Location: Manchester


You will form an essential part of a collaborative, iterative and agile process within a multi-disciplined team helping deliver best in class digital solutions. This role provides a unique opportunity to define, support and grow an entirely new software quality capability within our Digital Delivery Team. You will be a valued member of the Digital Delivery Centre Team, contributing to the strategic direction of the technology and solutions delivered.


With the movement towards integration and automation you will focus on testability, robustness, and performance for exciting new projects. We are not looking for a traditional Manual Tester, are focused on automation and need someone with previous or current coding experience. You'll have good automation experience and be well versed in agile and BDD/TDD/ATDD.

You'll have deep knowledge of the STLC and a passion for Software Quality, it's desirable for you to have spent time with SonarQube, Robot or Gherkin. An awareness of Context Driven Testing would be beneficial as well as experience in testing MicroServices or Serverless technology.

You should be adept at picking up new technologies and have a passion for mentoring and technical coaching. We need someone who is positive and embraces change, someone with a positive attitude who can communicate and work well with others as you'll work closely with our Developers.


This role is based at our brand new hi-tech Digital Delivery Centre in the heart of Manchester where you will be working alongside some of the best Engineers in the world. We have the top two floors in the Neo Building which has undergone an £8m refurbishment, neighbours in the building amongst others including Microsoft. We have a roof terrace with weatherproof desk pods as well as showers, bike racks and a discounted gym next door! We run a regular events/social program and the building is dog friendly!
