You will be part of a team that are testing and ensuring the quality of our software solutions that power an always-on collaborative platform used by a worldwide collective of thousands of talented people to deliver end-to-end marketing solutions from concept through to implementation for all our clients.
A typical day will see you in a stand-up with your awesome scrum team, working alongside developers to create test cases and test plans, work directly with customers and employees to identify software problems and support new user story requirements, run tests and identify bugs, support a teammate or group on a problem, run multi-browser checks, perform regression testing, plan and prioritise future work, pair with development team to test and debug a sprint deliverable, document your work and create and update training and user documentation.
