  • Adhering to test strategy, evidencing the required artefacts and meeting documentation standards
  • Collaborating with other Test Engineers across L&G to create a Testing Community of Practice (TCoP)
  • You’ll be a hands-on tester with strong knowledge of Core Java
  • Perhaps you also have a background in User Interface (UI) development with languages such as Javascript or Typescript
  • You should have experience in creating and maintaining automated test frameworks for both API and UI level testing
  • It would be great if you have some knowledge of performance test tools such as JMeter or Artillery
  • DevOps and Continuous Integration (CI/CD) using tools such as Jenkins, Maven, GitHub
  • You’ll be an active participant in the testing community with a strong GitHub profile and several repositories showcasing your work

Whatever your role, we reward ability, performance and attitude with a package that looks after all the things that are important to you. Our employees have a wide range of benefits including a generous pension scheme, life assurance, 25 days’ holiday, private medical insurance, discretionary performance related bonuses, paid overtime, a variety of share schemes, discounts at both a huge range of high street stores and our own great products. Your hard work will be rewarded when you join us.
