  • You're Motivated - excited, creative, curious, persistent, and a resilient individual.

You will also need to:
  • Have a demonstrated ability to work reliably, both individually and in team environments
  • Have a good understanding of testing processes and the value of testing in the development lifecycle
  • Solid analysis skills
  • Be technically savvy - you will be expected to develop both manual and automated tests - we use TOSCA as our tool of choice, as well as Selenium.
  • Experience in SQL, SoapUI & XML.
  • Experience in using CONFLUENCE, Internal JIRA, Cloud JIRA and SBE (Specifications by Example) techniques
  • Stepping up when needed for leadership tasks
  • Familiar with, and has worked in Agile projects and in DevOps delivery. Exposure to the Scaled Agile framework (SAFe would be a definite advantage).
  • Knowledge of MSD applications such as SWIFTT, CMS, MyMSD and other systems is a plus.

Successful candidates will have the chance to develop skills alongside multiple skilled DevOps teams using cutting edge I.T. systems and automation.
