We want to make you one of our specialist Software Test Analysts.  

Are you a recent graduate or a technology enthusiastic looking for rewarding and lucrative career in a booming industry? 

Training is confirmed to be REMOTE - applications accepted and open from across the UK.  

What is a Test Analyst? What would a world look like without testing?   

Your favourite apps wouldn’t work on your new mobile device, cars would be deemed too hazardous to use, every game you’ve ever played would be even more buggy than as Assassin’s Creed Unity.  Everything would be glitchy, unpredictable and insecure. It sounds nightmarish, doesn’t it? Businesses recognise this and as such, the testing of software has never been more important.  

This is where you come in. We can train you to be one of our specialist software tester consultants who would be responsible for the design, execution and reporting of test suits.   

The role is broad in aspect and is an incredible entry point into technology for graduates that want to take that first step into an IT based career. You might be testing regularly updated small applications, or giant enterprise level systems. Either way, you’re core to the development cycle and the assurance that the systems are going to do what they need to add huge business value.   

As part of an agile team, you will work alongside BA’s and Developers to make sure the user stories are correct, and sprints are completed on time and to the required quality. In every way that you work in testing you will be an imaginative problem solver; you care about finding out what the core of the problem is.   

Don’t worry, you’re not expected to know how to do all of this already; that’s where Sparta Global comes in.  We can take your already outstanding skillsets and train you further to the level of a capable specialist consultant.  

We want to help you grow into someone that can use niche skillsets from Functional Testing to Performance to Black Box and everything in between. By training in one of our world class academies we will make you a specialist consultant who will then work with our clients to help them realise their business needs.
