Job Purpose

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new and enthusiastic team who is taking Admiral’s data to the cloud. We are currently making real steps in our aim of real time access to data and we are looking for someone to support the Test Lead to speed up the testing process.

We are looking for someone to support the team and test the elements we are creating with an eye on how we can improve each step of the release process. You will work with the Test Lead to come up with testing principles that will be followed and build test automation, so it is a fast and fluid process. The role will range from quite technical with a heavy emphasis on coding to manual data testing and we are looking for the successful candidate to bring all their previous experience to the new team.

  • Specification and on-going development and maintenance of testing framework
  • Ability to record, report, evaluate and manage defects found during testing and manage through to closure
  • Build out automation on the Google cloud platform for reconciliation testing

  • Experience of testing IT projects through to completion
  • Experience in defect tracking tools (such as JIRA)
  • Proven ability or strong willingness to write code that will be used in automation testing
