This is an amazing opportunity to join our in-house team to shape and develop our test function to ensure the best quality solutions for our global movement.

We have made a long-term commitment to harnessing the right technology as an enabler for future growth and we offer the opportunity to use your talents to support our movement in a dynamic, inclusive, values driven environment with a real focus on personal development. We are also happy for this role to be fully remote.

Working in close collaboration across our IT Applications team and key stakeholders across MMI and our global MM network, you will be working across a variety of global projects, analysing user stories and case requirements and will play a key role in the scoping and planning projects across our movement. You will perform integration, performance and stress testing of client server applications including post release checks and will play a lead role in developing our approach to testing to ensure we are embracing current technology trends to enhance testing methods.

You will also bring:

  • A practical, hands on approach with the ability to contribute to projects whilst taking personal responsibility for their success
  • Robust experience of working with Agile teams and associated tools (Scrum, Jira, Confluence),
