- Verify that any solution we implement works in the way we expect by carrying out an appropriate amount of testing (a combination of automated. feature/component/integration/acceptance testing and manual exploratory testing).
- Support any changes as required - through verification and integration with the customer delivery teams, and with the support team in production.
- Be aware of, research, qualify, test and trial new technologies - whilst ensuring innovation is responsibly sustainable.
