QA Analyst

We are looking for a needle in the haystack - could that be you?
Are you a passionate, curious and thoughtful Quality Analyst, who is genuinely invested in your career? 

You'll be take steps to actively learn in the Quality and Testing field, we’re not just talking tools and platforms; we’re talking approaches and thought leadership. You’ll spend time exploring how other companies approach quality and testing, because you know there are always new things to learn and because you love what you do.
You'll be equally comfortable across both manual and automation testing disciplines, with experience working as a lone tester or smaller company environment. If you've had exposure to Session-based testing or other exploratory testing techniques, then we'd love to hear from you. If you haven't but are keen to learn (and have taken steps to inform yourself already) - then we'd love to chat too.
In return, you'll join a company with a vision for delivering high-quality digital work for our clients with the thinking and design to match. A smart team, an enviable tech stack, a proven and repeatable framework for delivery, and the chance to work with a genuinely lovely bunch of humans.
You'll help us maintain and improve the quality of our work by evolving our delivery practices and championing quality at all stages of the project delivery lifecycle.
We’re keen to meet people who care about improving quality and building high-quality products as well as testing. By promoting good software development practices, we are looking to produce quality software the first time around, rather than only relying on fixing mistakes in the product.

If this sounds like fun to you, we’d love to chat.
