thewealthworks is a software house specialising in Investment Management and Accounting Software.
Our Troika and Plus ranges of software are used for a wide range of investment purposes from Trusts to Investment and Fund Management in the UK and Channel Islands, and as far as Mauritius, Malta, Gibraltar and Hong Kong. Our client base includes banks, solicitors, accountants and family offices.

You will be responsible for designing and developing automated tests in addition to executing manual test suites to ensure adequate and effective test coverage. You will be involved in all aspects of the software development life cycle and be responsible for defining and agreeing the acceptance criteria/definition of done for each user story.
The successful candidate will work closely with the team to deliver test activities to meet the functional and non-functional requirements and ambitions of the stakeholders. You will participate in sprint planning activities and are encouraged to find and maximise test benefits within the team.
You will report to the Test Manager, providing assurances at team retrospectives and planning sessions to ensure best practises are followed, continual improvements are made and appropriate standards are adhered to.
The Product Development team all work remotely, but once the current Covid-19 situation has improved the aim will be to get together regularly (once/twice a month) somewhere around Sussex.
