Documenting testing requirements, identifying what success looks like (acceptance criteria), potential operational trade-offs, and maintenance of test scenarios/cases repository.
Using relevant testing techniques and tools to progress projects - collaborating with your colleagues to co-ordinate specific areas of expertise from across the business. (eg, domain expertise.)

What We're Looking For
Ideally, you'll have some experience within testing, project management or a relevant business role such as operations or customer care. You'll can see through the eyes of our customers and colleagues.
Any knowledge of personal lines or pet insurance and the systems we use would be highly advantageous.
You'll know (or be keen to learn) change and delivery methodologies, coupled with testing techniques.
You bring clear and engaging communication skills, both written and verbal. (This one's important as you'll need to influence a wide range of people with your proposals.)
Ideally, you'll have worked within an Agile environment like ours, from within a scale-up or start-up.

Our north star is to become an elite performer as defined by the 4 key DORA metrics. To drive towards elite status, we apply and continually inspect and adapt the best Agile frameworks and practices inspired by DevOps, SRE, Scrum, XP and Lean.
