  • You’ll understand key business and lab priorities, deliver code, facilitate solution designs and identify potential technical impediments then work to resolve them.

    • Ensure that Testing is conducted in a way which is consistent with - and exploits the collective frameworks, patterns and standard methodologies that exist across the wider Test community
    • Experience working at a mid-senior level within another software engineering or modern quality testing role.
    • Good knowledge of the full test lifecycle.
    • This is wholly hands on role and you'll require Big Data experience within Hadoop technologies and specific prior experience of Java or Scala. We also use HiveQL and Pig so experience of these would be a bonus.
    • It would also be nice to have experience of Machine Learning, Data Modelling, Python and Java.
    • Experience of Cloud Technologies e.g. GCP
