Job Description

Lead Performance Tester


To £50K plus extensive benefits package

Due to the secure nature of the work, all candidates must hold UK SC clearance or minimally be SC clearable.

Based in either Birmingham or Bridgend but will also consider Reading, Bristol, Luton, London, Newcastle, Manchester or Leatherhead.


Required qualifications to be successful in this role

We’re looking for a demonstrable track record working in Performance testing, with strong experience of using LoadRunner on a daily basis. We would consider experience with other performance testing tools – such as Jmeter, Neoload – as highly desirable, along with demonstrable technical understanding of networking, databases and Infrastructure architectures.

Any particular experience of upgrading to the current version of LoadRunner (v12) is advantageous.

From a personal perspective, all candidates must come across as highly-motivated, flexible, and genuine self-starters with good communication skills. The ability to be able to explain technical issues to non-technical internal and external staff is essential.

Specific experience gained within the government or public sector would be highly preferred, however we are open to testing professionals from other sectors who can demonstrate a strong set of testing competencies as above.

This represents a great opportunity to help drive forward testing in a high-profile customer and to make your mark in an area that genuinely makes an impact in the UK.
