  • Excellent communication skills including spoken and written English.
  • Experience testing Microservices through RESTful APIs would be an advantage
  • Passionate about quality metrics in product implementation.
  • Experience in writing automation from the ground up.
  • Experience working on any monitoring tools (New Relic, Splunk).
  • Experience or knowledge of Performance Testing and tools such as JMeter/Gatling

Your 25 days holiday is topped up by an extra day for your birthday along with 12 days’ bank holiday. Gym discounts, and our office sports and social committee activities could be right up your street. You will also have the opportunity to work dynamically and flexibly within the team.

If you’re thinking about relocating to join us, we offer an excellent package to help you do so. While English is the local language, we’ll help you and your family with Spanish lessons too.
