Life in our Digital Teams

Insurance is ripe for disruption and that is what we have been doing. In fact, we are a 320 year old disruptor that is transforming the way customers engage with our products and services.

Over the past 2 years Aviva has been on one of the most visionary digital transformation journeys of any company within Financial Services and we continue to move towards being a “Digital First” organization. We have built bespoke digital spaces for our teams in our London Digital Garage, Norwich, Bristol, and now we are excited to be establishing teams locally in Sheffield too now!

We approach software delivery with an Agile mind-set; passionate about delivering small, value-driven improvements, regularly and often. We craft brand new experiences, small changes to existing products as well as investing in maintaining our existing products.

The role:

We are looking for Test Engineers to join our Digital team, working within one of our scrum teams to test and maintain the RESTful APIs that underpin both ours and our partners digital apps. You'll sustain our culture of continuous improvement both from a process and technical perspective, ensuring that:

  • Defining Feature Files and implementing step definitions using Java, Cucumber
  • Supporting the definition of the future platform operating model and provide input into the Test resources, processes and standards required
  • Highlighting blockers impacting scrum team functional and non-functional testing and either owning resolution or requesting they are mitigated/called out as appropriate
  • Ensuring relevant Project Partner/Test Manager/Platform Quality Manager is kept informed of your workload
  • Engaging with project teams to ensure that Acceptance Criteria for incoming stories meet all quality requirements - e.g. logging, error messages, unhappy path testing as well as functional testing
  • The quality of all testing for stories assigned to you within your scrum team
  • Providing input into Assurance signoff of new platform deliveries into Runway/Staging environments
  • Maintaining awareness of and compliance with relevant Release Management/Assurance processes and standards to ensure the PST can continue to deliver into production
  • Developing a t-shaped skillset in order to support the future platform operating model

  • Working with the PQM to help define and deliver the quality agenda
About You:

Like us, first and foremost, you will be passionate about the customer, with a real drive to improve products and how our customers engage with us digitally. We will support you to challenge the status quo where necessary; in fact we positively encourage it. You will enjoy the agile working environment and be given the autonomy to do you role to the best of your ability. Working in collaborative teams, you will support your colleagues and you will receive the same in return.

As a business, we want people to have a realistic work-life balance, so if you have personal commitments that might make a standard 9-5 job a challenge, we are advocates for flexible working.
