20 years ago Juliet Davenport wanted to do something that would have real and lasting value to our planet.

She believed everyone had the right to clean, green energy to power their homes and businesses. That all of our futures depended on it. So, she did something revolutionary.

She built a company whose sole purpose was to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future for everyone.

She believed that businesses could lead the way. And that if people were offered an alternative to the fossil fuels that were killing our planet, they would take it.

And they did. Over 259,000 homes and businesses have chosen our green power. Supplied by 1,400 different locations – from a single home solar panels to wind farms.

But that’s not enough.

In 2020 we’re transforming the service we offer our customers so we can help more people choose a cleaner, greener future together. Because everyone has the right to power their homes and businesses without risking the earth. All of our futures depend on it.

To do this, we need your help. Will you join our fight?

We’re looking for a proactive and curious Automation Tester to join our growing Development team as we take on new and exciting projects. Within the role you’ll exhibit a keen desire to work with and learn, or be already familiar with, technologies such as C#, SpecFlow and Selenium. As well as associated technologies such as git, Azure Dev Ops and more.

In the role you’ll be playing an active part in the delivery of testing capability through the use of automation techniques, quality practices and processes as well as some manual testing. You’ll work in collaboration with the Lead Automation Tester, exploring opportunities and compelling new technologies that will enhance testing capability and improve quality of delivery.

A key part of the role which will be fully supported by the Lead Automation Tester initially, will be the delivering and conducting automation testing as part of Agile and Scrum Development teams. In the role you’ll work effectively within Scrum teams and make positive contributions to Agile and Scrum Ceremonies. This includes supporting Agile Business Analysts in refinement of User stories and acceptance criteria to ensure the acceptance tests reflect the desired functionality.

As a proactive and exceptional communicator, you’ll have a passion for being part of and contributing to a high performing test and automation team. You’ll have a real enthusiasm and curiosity when it comes to testing and learning automation technologies.

With a strong understanding of Agile principles and implementations you’ll continuously seek out improvements. You’ll source ideas from your own experience, suggestions from the team or good practice from the broader community, creating a collaborative environment.

You’ll be driven when it comes to supporting and working on test strategies, as well as, testing within development environments. You’ll either have previous experience, or have the desire to learn the application of automation techniques and technologies.

So, if you’re driven and curious, with a keen interest in green energy and renewables, thrive within an agile environment, we want to hear from you.
