They have a need for a hybrid business analyst who is able to implement test solutions around the full software delivery lifecycle (SDLC). Just some of the things you will be getting up to in this role will be:

What we need from you–

  • Apply a logical and detail-driven mindset to business systems and show the positive effect this has on business operations.
  • Find edge case user experiences before the client does.
  • Be a clear and proactive communicator, relaying information to and from your stakeholders (developers, designers and clients) in a simple, concise way.
  • Be assured and conscientious in a client-facing environment, able to clearly relay problems and solutions to them, whilst having the confidence to challenge them when necessary.
  • Be calm at all times and always apply a method to the madness.
  • Infuse our trademark passion and expertise into every client-facing communication and presentation, ensuring our clients are fully paid-up members of our way.
  • Be an engaging, energetic and friendly presence, both in our studios and with our clients.

What you’ll get–

  • A genuinely competitive (and we do mean genuinely competitive) salary and pension scheme.
  • Flexible working from Leeds, London or home.
  • 23 days’ holiday, plus an extra day off should your birthday fall during the week.
  • An extra day’s holiday for every year you’ve worked with us.
  • A performance-related bonus.
  • A vibrant, friendly and passionate work culture that’s built around collaboration and personal development.
  • Invitations to team outings and awards nights, where you’ll witness first-hand the famously horrendous dancing of their MD.
  • And, last but by no means least, a free Friday fry-up. With red or brown sauce. Now, we can’t say fairer than that…

 The flexible nature of this role means we would welcome applicants looking for both full- and part-time positions.
