At Virgin Money, the freedom to be your true self means everything to us. It’s about bringing as much of yourself to work as you want and encouraging others to do the same. We all want to be ourselves, whoever that is, wherever that is. That sense of belonging is so important to us, we’ve made it a core part of our strategy. It’s good for you, it’s good for us and it’s amazing for our customers.

We want to share with you our amazing journey within the Digital space (… it’s really out of this world) and would love for you to join us! We’re working hard to transform the way we work, become more agile and to be best placed to provide first class services to our customers. The need to be on the go at a click of a button has never been greater and it’s us to us to make that happen when it comes to Banking with us.

We believe in collaboration, with Agile at the heart of everything we do. We aren’t perfect (who is?) so we iterate and improve as we go. We are looking for people who can, not only help us continue to disrupt the banking sector but also how we become better at what we do!

You will work collaboratively with our teams to review our manual testing packs and migrate this effort to an automated testing pack to move us to a CI/CD delivery approach. You will help to develop and apply testing processes for new and existing products to meet stakeholder needs as well as track and improve quality metrics to demonstrate the benefits of an automated first approach.

Day to day you’ll be…

  • Using your understanding of quality frameworks such as TDD and BDD as well as automation principles and toolsets such as Selenium, Cucumber, cloud based and performance test tools, continuous integration tools, service virtualization and jira to help us delight our colleagues and customers
  • Working with other quality engineers and competency chapter leads to understand the CIO & tribe priorities
  • Working as a team you will contribute to the best solution and help prioritise the backlog for the tribe which will demonstrate the most relevance for our colleagues and customers
  • You will help in identifying technical impediments, working directly to resolve. You will work with tribe members to support and educate on quality first principles, whilst facilitating CI/CD

  • Knowledge of Agile/Scrum principles or working practice
  • An understanding of quality assurance activities including manual and automation testing
  • Knowledge of Java, Manual Testing and Test Automation

Overall, your attitude and approach are as important as the experience and skills that you will bring.

The icing on the cake would be….

  • Computer Science and/or Engineering degrees (or equivalent practical experience) are preferred while other degree subjects may be considered
  • Highly effective communication skills working with all levels of the organization
