So, if you have a thirst for innovation and want to work with talented and passionate people in an informal and high energy office then read on...

Tell me More!

The clients we partner with range from boutique to multinational, whose users span from employees in your local supermarket to vulnerable young adults.

You’ll gain experience with industries from NGOs to Travel and have the opportunity to provide a meaningful voice in developing products that improve people's lives.

In recent projects, we created a Smart Cities platform using React and AWS's IoT products for SSE and also launched a pilot project for NIHR, the research arm of the NHS. 

For your first project, you will join a team with a mix of existing and new employees across London and Wrocław, working with Collinson on their hero consumer app. This world-leading app contains features like geo-sensitive airport maps, food pre-order in the terminal, and prebooking of spaces in lounges. We pride ourselves on quality, and we ensure this with automation testing leveraging espresso and XC UITest.

What experience/ skills do you need?

  • Programming experience in Swift and either Java or Kotlin
  • Experience with XCode and Android Studio
  • Knowledge of XML/JSON RESTful APIs as well as tools to manipulate these, such as Charles
  • Experience with continuous integration tools
  • Experience of working in a cross-functional team environment

It's a bonus if you also have experience:

  • Working in an Agile environment
  • Writing and running web automation
  • Developing the automation framework from scratch by applying the best coding practices

What will I do?

You will work with other engineers around the world to write clear, concise and readable acceptance tests in true BDD style. You’ll help to write and maintain tests using XCUITest and Espresso while analysing and decomposing complicated software systems and design strategies to test these systems.

As nothing can be fully automated you will conduct some manual tests to ensure 360° quality control.

When you join this team you will work continuously with the development team as well as the test engineering teams to ensure that we are providing the highest quality of code, per code reviews and pair programming.
