Why Capita

Our employees bring with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise, to utilise these effectively, our overall approach is based on a distinct set of values which we believe stand us apart from many large businesses:

Openness - we are honest and transparent, acting with integrity, embracing diversity and respecting our colleagues and clients.

Ingenuity - we have the courage to do things differently, think smart and look for new and innovative solutions.

Collaborative - we benefit from shared ideas and our clients do too; working in partnership to solve challenges and combining the talents of all our businesses and those of the organisations we support.

Effective - we deliver what we promise and believe that great service can always be better.

What We Look For

As a highly technical, agile-focussed software engineering environment, we develop and assure multiple solution components to interact in a common framework. The developed modules need to be assured both as individual components and as part of an integrated solution, with an appreciation for APIs and upstream/ downstream systems. We are working towards a continuous integration and deployment outcome which drives much of our approach.

The assurance service, which is embedded in the overall software engineering function, provides a highly automated, continuous testing capability. This capability covers key requirements, both business and technical, through various test phases including Unit, System, Integration and Performance.

Due to the nature of our client's work we are only able to consider people who possess DV clearance or are eligible to undergo the DV clearance process.

  • Work closely with other team members in support of wider test development and automation objectives

  • Strong technical understanding of both Windows and Linux OS
  • Proven experience of structured and unstructured databases i.e. Oracle, Hadoop, SQL Server, MongoDB
