  • Curious about how things work and what can break them

  • Interested in learning and improving – on your own as well as through formal training

Over time, depending on your skills and interests, you will also have access to formal training such as:  

  • An internationally recognised qualification in Software Testing.

  • Internal groups such as Culture Diversity and LGBTQ 
  • Internal technology conferences and knowledge share sessions
