Description

Our success, your opportunity.

DLA Piper, an international leading law firm, currently on its transitional journey of becoming the law firm of the future, embracing change, investing in and driving modern initiatives. We are looking for a QA & Test Analyst to join our IT team in Leeds. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, please read on and apply.

MAIN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

We're looking for ambitious, progressive and experienced individuals, who want to make a real difference within the QA space.

As we are a reasonably new team, this is a unique and exciting opportunity to truly help shape our QA team of the future, supporting the continuous improvement of Quality Engineering through innovation and automation.

Though the role will be involved in the full test process, including managing and executing test activities, this is much more than a testing role. We are looking for someone to bring their wealth of skills and understanding to the projects and work streams on which they will lead, to consult and advise on the best QA and test approach, with a focus on achieving most effective and long term benefits.

The successful candidate will bring a deep portfolio of senior level QA and testing experience, covering every aspect of the Quality Assurance lifecycle, from engaging at the test planning and strategy phase and identifying QA scope, to mentoring, coaching and inspiring others in QA techniques and best practise.

This is an opportunity to work with stakeholders from across the IT department and the wider international business on innovative legal solutions. People and relationships are extremely important to us and this role best suits someone who can engage effectively with all stakeholder types, influencing best outcomes, with the customer as the focus.

We are a supportive, inclusive and collaborative community and are looking for someone who shares in our values to contribute to our positive working culture.

* Extensive senior level test experience
* A keen focus on continual improvement, personally and in the wider community and practise
* Experience includes working in complex IT environments supporting a diverse and large number of services
* Has experience in leading and executing quality assurance and test activities for third party products as well as internally developed software
* Demonstrates a high level of personal responsibility and autonomy, planning own work to meet given objectives within a defined framework
* Conveys confidence and professionalism when engaging with stakeholders, positively influencing others to take a specific course of action in line with delivering quality outcomes
* Makes decisions which support the success of projects, change and team objectives
* Has a strong relationship and stakeholder management approach, championing effective collaboration
* Communicates fluently, orally and in writing, and can present complex information to both technical and non-technical audiences
* Has an excellent eye for detail and takes a structured approach, including creation of quality supporting documentation and artefacts
* Able to investigate, define and resolve complex issues within a complex environment
* Is solution focused and takes a positive and proactive approach
* Is an expert in testing techniques used to plan and execute tests of all application components (functional and non-functional)
* Has proficiency in software tools which automate or assist any part of the testing process across all or part of the testing lifecycle
* Demonstrates ability to work with acute focus whilst also considering a holistic view, identifying opportunities to deliver benefits on a broader scale
* Has worked within waterfall and agile project delivery frameworks
* Ideally has experience in test automation, testing within Cloud environments and performance testing
* Desirable qualifications:

* ITSQB-BCS Certified Tester Foundation Level
* ISTQB-BCS Foundation Agile Tester Extension
* BCS Intermediate Certificate in Software Testing
