  • Working within an agile engineering squad to further advance our operational capabilities and improve our cycle time for feature delivery
  • Being active in our communities of practice across engineering and development to continually enhance our collective knowledge.

  • Experience with CI / CD processes
  • Knowledge of GitLab CI as a nice-to-have
  • Experience with Kafka (or similar messaging systems) testing
  • Passionate about quality metrics in product implementation.
  • A self-starter and work with minimal supervision. Mentor junior engineers in the team.
  • The ability to interact with colleagues from all disciplines and specifically work closely with the development teams
  • A track record in developing test automation within an Agile environment
  • Excellent communication skills including spoken and written English.
  • What we offer

    We take the safety and wellbeing of our employees seriously, especially at this challenging time. We have put in place robust Covid19 measures and are supporting our new employees with a smooth onboarding and training programme and making you feel welcome and part of our team.

    We’ll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme.

    Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.
