Our people are encouraged to identify, propose and champion improvements through to implementation. We will want to challenge the normal in a productive way. We encourage you to be the best you can be in your role, open to feedback, challenge and to change.

You must be open to giving and receiving feedback in a constructive and open manner
You will encourage a mindset of quality and doing the right thing; ego has no place here
While experience of SCRUM methodology is a plus, having a strong understanding of the full software delivery cycle is essential
We want to help our people develop themselves professionally and personally. You will have the ability to 'Show, don't Tell', while communicating with your team and with other teams
The desire to mentor and support those that are working towards obtaining all the above qualities helps us achieve that.
