Remote working?It’s a key topic at the moment, we have addressed this by implementing a “Remote-First” policy. What this ultimately means is you have the choice as to whether you Work Fully Remotely, or visit the lush offices in London, Cardiff or Amsterdam; it’s up to you!

  • The ability to work closely with non-technical and technical stakeholders in order to determine accurate acceptance criteria

  • SKILLS / TECH

  • API testing and tools - e.g. Postman, Restassured, Newman
  • AWS deployments or deployment tools - e.g. Jenkins
  • Diagnosing, reporting, tracking and resolving quality issues utilising ticketing systems and documentation software - e.g. JIRA and Confluence
  • Containerisation and management of tools like Docker and Kubernetes is desirable but not essential
