Quality Assurance Analyst (Agile)

  • Job reference: GN0000405
  • Sector: Information Communications
  • Location: Bangalore

Background

 

Atkins has recently defined a “One Atkins 2020” Organisational strategy. To support this strategy, IS has defined an operating model for 2020 to revolutionise the way IS is provided to the organisation, moving from a BAU focus to a Business Value driven organisation. Key concepts include: Moving to digital products, adopting agile across the organisation, leveraging cloud, and focus on supporting bids and delivery of internal and commercial products.

 

This strategy needs developers who are truly “digital” – that is multi-skilled, user centred, agile and innovative, with expertise and curiosity in new and emerging technologies.

 

Data will form a key part of the new Atkins and we are seeking database developers who are able to think bigger and smarter than we have needed to think before.
