Full Time
Whilst most companies locally are making redundancies, furloughing or just keeping afloat, some are growing.

Like this global marketing science company in Havant, whose strong leadership and creative strategies mean they are hiring lots of new people, building new teams and working on greenfield projects.

They use shed loads of data, psychology, behavioural science, and complex algorithms to predict whether TV adverts will succeed or fail.

You'll work with clients like Coca-Cola, Ford or Mars, helping them spend their marketing budget as efficiently as possible.

Their massive growth means that they now need a Software Test Manager to take ownership of the Test team of five, with complete autonomy to shape the team in your image.

You'll spend 50% of your time managing the team and deciding the best strategy for automating all of their regression suites to move to the goal of an automation-first mindset.

The other 50% will be a mix of manual and automated testing, leading by example.

You'll work with 30 whip-smart developers; you'll benefit from a training and progression framework that you'd typically see at companies ten times bigger and an ultra-modern tech stack to rival any other.

The interviews are fully remote; the role is, too, even after COVID calms down. (Apart from one or two days a month in the office)
