At Freestyle we pride ourselves on being innovative thinkers and pragmatic problem solvers. It’s all about the attitude, getting stuck in to solve our clients’ challenges, listening and learning so that we can deliver even better next time, being confident and building our skills everyday so that we can all improve.
You are passionate about your work and your development. You are a highly motivated team player with great communication skills and a strong desire to collaborate and succeed.
We are focused on delivering great customer experiences and this role is a fundamental part of this.
In this role, you’ll work with experienced QA (Quality Assurance) Engineers and our Site Support Lead to ensure that digital products leaving our studio are of the highest quality. You’ll spend time testing websites, Apps, API’s and more, learning from an experienced QA Engineer how to ‘break’ stuff - finding bugs in code, and ensuring that the product acceptance criteria are met - i.e. are the expected outcomes of a user story as expected.
In addition, you’ll work with the Site Support Lead to ensure our clients have the best possible experience. You will be the go-to person for our clients when they need support with their sites. This can be anything from helping them to log in, uploading content and triaging bugs through to training.
Working across our QA, Testing and Support function will provide a great training ground in getting you to grips with CMS systems, basic code (you can tinker with more complex code, and spend time learning from our established dev team too, should the appetite be there). You’ll get exposure to the delivery of a range of projects and products - giving you excellent grounding for a career in the digital product space. You’ll spend your first couple of years at Freestyle really getting to grips with all of the above, with future career opportunities leading to continued progression within QA and Testing, Technical Project Management, Development and Engineering and more!
This is a role and environment that would suit graduates who have studied for degrees such as:
You will enjoy the challenges of working in a fast-paced environment and deploying your skills in innovative ways. We will help you develop your skills, and you’ll work with experts across development, delivery and project management, QA and more.
The ideal candidate will have a passion and interest in digital and technology (maybe you tinker with websites on the side, or you just like learning new technologies) - and a desire to build a hands-on career in this space.
Whilst we don’t expect you to have all these skills today, you will quickly be able to work effectively in the following ways:
We’re operating a Hybrid model here at Freestyle - this requires at least one day a week in our barn conversion offices just outside of Leamington Spa (you’d need to be able to get here by car, as public transport links don’t cater for our rural location). We offer flexible and remote working outside of this…and we’re dog friendly too.
First and foremost, our people are always at the core of what we do here at Freestyle. We’re a really friendly bunch and we love working, collaborating (and having a laugh) together.
We have a great list of perks including, but not limited to 28 days holiday (20 days, 2 duvet days and 2 weeks shut down at Christmas) - plus the chance to buy and sell more holiday, BUPA cash plan, competitive pension, fresh bread deliveries weekly…artisan coffee, a dedicated social committee and a whole load more!
What’s more, we’ve fostered a culture of trust, and we believe in giving our people the autonomy to own and shape their role, and work flexibly around their personal commitments and interests. We’ve created a truly safe environment where people can innovate, create, play and experiment and in addition we promote a ‘fail fast, learn fast’ mentality with a genuine understanding that we’re all human.
So if you’re looking to join a progressive, people-focused environment where you can really add value and have an impact on how we do what we do then get in touch today.
