QA Consultant

This will be a hands-on technical role as one of our QA Consultants. You will be joining a cross-functional team of highly skilled and like-minded individuals, helping build the testing strategy and assisting that client to realise the business benefit of an investment in the cloud.

About the role and what you'll be doing

You will be working with your team to create a test strategy covering the full project lifecycle, owning initiatives for improvement and standardisation of quality processes, and building strong relationships with your team and client to influence quality culture. 

A typical day-to-day for an Amido QA Consultant would be to attend daily ceremonies with the rest of your project team and collaborate to refine and prepare user stories for your sprint.  You would test and interrogate the system under test using the range of testing skills at your disposal and regularly interact with stakeholders and clients to bring value to the project.   

Amido has a diverse set of communities, as well as your core competency, that you’ll be encouraged to contribute to and learn from, where projects and client commitments allow.  

You will be a self-starter, proactive in your project work and your career, including identifying your development needs and planning to fill them with the help of your training budget.

We are a client-facing business, but we do encourage clients to allow us to work remotely for a majority of the time so if you are not required to be on client site, you can choose to work from home or in our Amido offices.

What you’ll bring to Amido

We are looking for passionate QAs bringing the following skills and experience:

  • Delivering production software using an Agile methodology

  • Understanding of the importance and impact of performance, security, accessibility and reliability testing  
  • Passionate to share knowledge and foster a 'test first' mindset within your project team and within wider organisation s    
  • Understanding business and client requirements and have an ability to articulate solutions to both technical and non-technical audiences.  
  • Great communication skills in particular: presenting, collaborating and working with stakeholders

What we offer you

  • We will give you a place to strive and grow, and you will have the opportunity to work on interesting, yet challenging projects. You will apply your skills and experience to building a better world founded on intelligent technologies.  
  • This will be an extremely varied position that’s all about problem-solving and finding the right technical solutions for your client. You will be given autonomy over your work so that you will have the opportunity to shape the projects you’re working on.
  • We are a people-first business, which means people are at the heart of everything we do here. We offer our consultants a safe environment where knowledge sharing, and open communication is encouraged. Whether at one of the internal monthly events, such as Lunch & Learns, Tech Time, and internal competency meet-ups, or at one of our community groups, such as football, gaming, yoga, or wellbeing; we have strived to build a business where everyone feels welcomed, included, and valued.
