Our business is growing fast – which means first-class systems are more important than ever. As a Systems Test Analyst, you’ll be at the heart of our team, helping to make Matthew Clark the UK’s top drinks wholesaler. Expect challenges aplenty – and rewards to match your talents. What’s more, you’ll get the chance to progress along with our expanding company.

What you’ll do

You will be contributing to standards, methodologies and processes which will enable IT to manage risk and deliver quality solutions. You will work closely with stakeholders across the whole systems development lifecycle, including developers, business and systems analysts, system users and third party IT suppliers. You will prepare and maintain test plans and test scripts, execute tests, record and report observations, defects and results. You will be part of a solution delivery team, leading and performing testing activities. This could involve working within a team of 2 on small systems enhancements through to a project delivery team of 20 to perform a new system integration or implementation.

About you

You will have proven experience of applying test practices across multiple platforms (transactional, reporting, integrated and interfaced) ideally within an ERP environment. A good understanding of Visual Studio Team Services would be advantageous, along with the ability to learn new tools, through both formal training and through self-learning, trial and error. You can produce structured written communication, provide constructive feedback and treat everyone in the same polite and professional way. You recognise that old methods sometimes have to be followed, but you will embrace and support the delivery of new methods and solutions. You are both self-reliant and team focused, you have an inquisitive nature and enjoy resolving problems. If your testing knowledge has not already been demonstrated through the successful completion of ISTQB Foundation (or similar qualification/experience) then you are ready to achieve to this.
