This Nottingham based company is one of the world's leading providers of data and technology to support clinical trials. They do it well, with 50% of all FDA approved new drugs in the USA coming through their business over the last 4 years.

With their new 'Digital Patient' business, they are now looking at broader patient healthcare monitoring. They are developing systems to track and data analyse long term patient conditions and all round patient health. This may involve wearable tech like glucose monitors, blood pressure monitors or fitbits and of course interconnectivity between smart phones, apps and software with the provision for data gathering, analysis and reporting.

It is an exciting time to join this brand new and creative part of their expanding business as they will be working with some of the biggest medical, pharmaceutical and healthcare businesses in the world and in a massively growing business area.

They seek a Principal Software Tester to join this friendly, supportive and newly formed team. The Principal Tester is responsible for coordinating the testing of software projects and providing initiative and innovation to improve and define the processes and technologies used within the department and wider company. They will provide insight and guidance on technologies and tools the business could utilize in order to have state of the art systems and procedures. They are also responsible for participating in setting departmental principles and vision, and for ensuring the associated deliverables.

Applications are welcome from anyone who has extensive knowledge of software development methodologies and structured approaches to system development, in particular system testing. You will need full software development life cycle experience and a good understanding of current industry technologies and IT practices in the software testing arena. You will most likely be in a Principal or Senior Tester role right now and be looking for a new challenge that gives you more freedom to research, devise and implement suitable and budgeted testing solutions.

The company values candidates with strong commercial business experience, a flexible attitude, strong attention to detail, a focus on deadlines and and great verbal and written English. Please note successful job offers will be subject to candidates being legally eligible to live and work in the UK & Ireland.

If you would like to work in a business that actually changes people's lives for the better then why not drop them a copy of your CV with a cover letter explaining why you would be interested in this role and what skills and experience you have that would make you a great candidate.
