Your reason for being here…

As our newest Test Analyst, your purpose is to make sure everything just flows. Your focus will be to ensure top-notch quality assurance across complex, multi-platform and dynamic business systems as our very own testing master. We’ll rely on you to foil and fix any issues before our systems are sent out into the world (no pressure).

The way you roll...

You are passionate about technology (obviously) with a hunger to learn new skills and a penchant for staying positive when working under pressure. We’re one big family here at DRPG, so it’s vital that you’re a team player who really cares about your teammates. Due to the nature of your role, you’ll be a cracking problem solver and creative thinker, always looking for a solution with big, bold ideas. This will make your commitment to delivering on our philosophy ‘anything’ possible,’ a breeze.

How you make it all possible…

As part of the Digital team, you’ll mainly work with the Media teams, but may support other areas of the business too. Day to day, you’ll:

  • Ensure a high level of quality assurance and testing coverage is achieved across all digital projects worked on

Get to know us…

We’re one of the most unexpectedly all-round capable communications agencies that’s been on the go for years – ever since our head honcho set up shop in a shed back in 1980, in fact.

Since then, we’ve made it our mission to make anything possible for our many and varied clients, putting our creative flair into delivering strategic communication campaigns, digital solutions, film and videos, events, exhibitions, and a whole lot more in between. We’ve grown a lot, but we’ve kept everything that made us great, back from the very day we first started out. Our global HQ and largest studios are smack bang in the middle of the UK and well worth a visit to see for yourself!

Hang on, there’s more…

The role will be based primarily in Hartlebury, but there will be times when you’ll need to work from our other offices and undertake other related commercial duties both in the UK and overseas. Flexibility is key!

We’re a friendly team. We really, really welcome anyone who wants to become part of a brilliant company. If you’re passionate with a cracking drive to deliver on our ‘anything’s possible’ mindset, we’d love to hear from you!
