ROLE SUMMARY

As a Test Analyst working as part of the Sport Intelligence team, you will play an integral role in ensuring the quality and performance of existing systems and new products. This is a new role within the team and offers the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of the software development lifecycle; particularly planning, design and testing of software solutions utilised by the UK’s high-performance sport system (all Olympic and Paralympic sports and English Institute of Sport staff). There will also be an opportunity to contribute to the development and delivery of these systems.

We are looking for someone who is excited by the opportunity to service the needs of elite sport staff and athletes with innovative software. The ideal candidate will have sufficient software testing expertise to take end to end ownership for all aspects of planning and execution, whilst working collaboratively as part of a close development and support team.

The English Institute of Sport (EIS) are the team behind many of Great Britain’s most successful sports. We worked with 93% of the athletes and 31 of the 34 sports that won a medal for Team GB and Paralympics GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games. As the country's largest provider of sport science, medicine and technology, the EIS also provides a range of added-value benefits to the sports we work with including cutting-edge innovation.

As part of this ‘team behind the team’, you will be contributing to the on-going success and continuous improvement of systems such as the EIS Performance Data Management System (PDMS), which enables the capture and management of data that is generated by EIS practitioners, elite athletes and coaches across Olympic and Paralympic sports.
