There is easy access to the Dorset countryside, the New Forest and the spectacular Jurassic Coast.

The role offers a hybrid working structure with a requirement of three days based in the office per week.
The successful candidate will be a Key Leader of the Test Team department who are responsible for all aspects in FlowBird’s testing of its integrated transport ticketing systems. The role will be attractive to experienced Test Managers who are proactive in test transformation, aspiring to an overall Test Management delivery and improvement role. They will be required to collaborate with development teams, design architects, product owners, project managers and sometimes the end users to deliver new products and enhancements. Comprehensive knowledge demonstrated across both Waterfall and Agile test methodologies is expected. Key expectations are having the capability to champion the Test Team to implement continuous process improvement to drive quality, efficiencies and speed to market; as well as assisting in the mentoring and development of the Test Team personnel’s capabilities.
FlowBird testing is primarily focused on system, end to end and user-acceptance testing, but exploratory, automated and component level testing capabilities are also highly valued. All of which will require a proficiency in the generation of test cases, script’s and possibly test plans, integration with software components and communication skills to provide feedback to the test/project/development teams. The ability to comply with project deliverables and industry standards is highly valued.
