Job Description

More than £90 Billion a year is illegally laundered through the UK.

When most people read headlines like this, they feel powerless.

So, they move on to the next story. Someone else will do something about it.

Well, if you're an Automated Test Engineer who wants to use your intelligence to fight financial crime, read on.

You'll work with a team of thirteen developers and two other testers, initially remotely during the lockdown and then in a beautiful distraction-free environment in Andover.

It's one of the few companies who aren't affected so much by COVID-19, because, in times of crisis, financial crime goes up and so does the need for their products.

Your challenge will be to help the company to their goal of 100% automation testing across all of their bespoke web products.

You'll initially focus on testing front-end code written in Angular.

The motto here is 'Everyone learns, and everyone teaches', and 95% of the projects are brand new.

Everyone has a voice, your ideas welcomed, and your specific strengths/knowledge will be respected.

Also, the working environment is one of the best I've seen.

The company has a mansion set within its grounds, and you will have access to an onsite gym, personal trainer, circuit classes, yoga, badminton courts, pool table, gaming machines and a large kitchen / break out area.

Hopefully, a good indication of how much they value their people is that all of this is just for their 35 employees. (10 of which I've placed there)

They're doing all interviews remotely during the lockdown, so nothing is holding you back.
