This position has been filled


Test Lead (Gaming)

What you will do….

Take ownership of testing / quality assurance across a group of squads, and oversee all QA activities.  You will evaluate test coverage and drive the test approach, ensuring that services and the products that they underpin are of consistently high quality, taking pride in that fact.
Work within the Tribe-group leadership team, representing QA at that level.  Contribute to the overall leadership of the group.
Work with Product, Architecture and Engineering to analyse and negotiate requirements and approach.  You’ll understand the bigger picture, how your deliverables feed into that, and you’ll shape the test approach towards that.
Be a champion for platform performance.  You’ll liaise with performance testing teams to identify bottlenecks, understand change impact, provide insight/data to improve test profiles, and drive improvements.
Contribute to continuous improvement of squad processes.  Identify, discuss and agree test process improvements, and lead their implementation.
Research, trial and evaluate test tools, and make compelling cases for their use.  You’ll be an advocate of effective test automation and its continuous use throughout the delivery pipeline.
Work with 3rd parties to provide governance around integration points.
Work closely with the Head of QA to manage risks and issues, align on cross-team deliverables and implement wider test strategies.

How you will do it…

You’ll have a relevant degree or equivalent in Computing or related subject and/or at least 5 years experience in an online environment.
You have a deep understanding of web technologies, techniques and practices. You’re adept with testing tools and techniques, and you have significant experience of applying them in a QA environment.  Experience with event driven systems an advantage.
You’ll have experience in driving quality across complex programmes, numerous teams and services, with varied stakeholders.
You’re a natural problem solver.  You will regularly deal with ambiguity and conflict, and apply your judgment to get the best outcome where there is no clear single answer.  You analyse options available to select the most appropriate approach.
You’re a leader.  You lead your team by example.  You get to know your team and understand what drives them.  You set the pace and maintain momentum.
You have excellent communication skills, and can articulate complex problems to both technical and non-technical people, verbally and in writing.
There is always something to improve, and you’re never satisfied.  You constantly strive for better.
You advocate quality at all phases of delivery.  You’re the conscience of the team and a stickler for doing things right.

How we work…

We are Agile.  Very agile.  We welcome change; we’re not afraid to fail as long as we fail fast; we learn from it.
We have strong team values.  You will work as part of an autonomous multifunctional squad.  We support what we build, we support each other and we don’t hand-off.
Testers are very much first class citizens.  We care about quality, and we expect testers to get involved at all phases of delivery.
We embrace new tools and technologies and use the right tool for the job.
