We are Cloud pioneers within the Financial Services sector. Come and help us build industry leading customer experiences using the latest technology. Joining our Software Engineering team, you will find testing and Quality is never an afterthought. Your work as a Software Developer in Test starts at the idea, testing team understanding through story refinement, driving clear, testable acceptance criteria and concrete examples.
In this role, your technical skills will help you to produce creative testing solutions and to automate for efficiency. You help other engineers to deliver Quality by providing supporting test frameworks and quick feedback. You care about delivering Quality products on time. And you care just as much about driving Quality into our processes - always taking opportunities to improve communication, reduce duplication, increase efficiency and our likelihood of detecting flaws and bugs quicker than before.

* Solid programming skills in your language of choice (not necessarily ours) and a track record of getting stuff done

* Working collaboratively, able to communicate effectively and commitment to be part of a successful team
We like to see (but not required):

* Experience of working within an enterprise environment
We provide you with the latest tech and the opportunities to work with cloud and open source technologies in greenfield projects. We encourage the adoption of new tools and techniques, contributions to the open source community, conferences and keynotes. We encourage you to learn, grow and expand beyond the depth and breadth of your current technical skill set, even moving to work on unfamiliar technologies. And we’ll support you along the way with loads of useful stuff like technical mentoring, accreditation and soft skills training.
