Who you’ll be working with

In Business Technology Solutions (BTS) we specialise in navigating our clients through the complexities of large-scale, technology-driven transformation programmes, using our skills to drive outstanding delivery. Having the right people using the right methodology and following the right process gives every client the right result.

The Transformational Testing Services Team (TTS) are one of five delivery teams that sit within Business & Technology Solutions. TTS was established in January 2016; a new Delivery Unit within Business Technology Solutions focusing on helping our client’s achieve business value through testing transformation. The TTS function is responsible for all aspects of testing services focusing on developing our capability and introducing transformation to our existing accounts. At Capgemini, we see various levels of maturity within our client’s IT Software Development Lifecycle. Some are just starting off on their testing transformation journey, whilst some of the more mature organisations are moving to a much more optimised, 'Dev-Ops' operation. Our aim with TTS is to help our customers evolve and innovate their testing landscape regardless of their maturity.

• Our Vision - For TTS to be the differentiator for Apps UK by becoming a leading player within the Testing Services market
• Our Mission - To create and deliver transformational testing solutions that fit our clients’ needs and drive increased efficiencies and reduced cost
• Our Strategy - To transform our existing engagements into more meaningful and commercially defensible relationships

The focus of your role

The role will typically report to the Test Manager on a given testing assignment and will be carried out at a wide variety of Capgemini and client sites. Central to the role is the definition, development and execution of performance test throughout the complete development lifecycle, from project initiation through to delivery.

What you’ll do

• Produce Workload Analysis Document / Performance Test Approach document from project non functional specifications
• Produce Performance Test scripts, test data and scenarios in accordance with the documented approach.
• Execute the performance tests prescribed within the Workload Analysis Document / Performance Test Design and document any deviation from the test scenarios as originally defined
• Log the results of the tests and present any extrapolation required to indicate how the application may perform in production environment
• Work with Technical Lead and other resources across the development and environments teams to rectify and retest issues encountered during testing and tune the application performance.
• Summarise performance testing in the Performance Test Evaluation report

What you’ll bring

We are looking for the highest calibre individuals who exhibit the following attributes, experience and skills that enable them to deliver rapid value to our clients:

• Strong capability in at least two performance test tools, such as LoadRunner and JMeter
• Strong technical background/capability (e.g. good knowledge of at least one software language)
• Fundamental understanding of common application technologies (e.g. web server, database)
• Understanding and performance monitoring of different servers (web, app, db), protocols, infrastructure, counter types and different application layers (security, presentation, communication and abstraction)
• Technologies needed: C#, .NET, TCP/IP, IIS, SQL Server, Network & server topology (web / app / db server) and knowledge of service layers, restful service, WSDL services, FTS

What we’ll offer you

Professional development. Accelerated career progression. An environment that encourages entrepreneurial spirit. It’s all on offer at Capgemini. And although collaboration is at the core of the way we work, we also recognise individual needs with a flexible benefits package you can tailor to suit you.

Why we’re different

At Capgemini, we help organisations across the world become more agile, more competitive and more successful. Smart, tailored, often-groundbreaking technical solutions to complex problems are the norm. But so, too, is a culture that’s as collaborative as it is forward thinking. Working closely with each other, and with our clients, we get under the skin of businesses and to the heart of their goals. You will too.

Capgemini is proud to represent nearly 130 nationalities and its cultural diversity. Our holistic definition of diversity extends beyond gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, race, age and religion. Capgemini views diversity as everything that makes us who we are as an organization, including our social background, our experiences in life and work, our communication styles and even our personality. These dimensions contribute to the type of diversity we value the most: diversity of thought.

We want to make sure that we find the right people to work in our teams, and we know that working full-time isn’t necessarily right for everyone. So we’d love to hear from you if you feel you’re a great fit for this role, and would like to work flexibly. As an example, some of our team members work four days a week, but travel across the UK during their working days. Or you might prefer to work three days a week (in a job share scenario) with travel limited to Greater London. If you are the right person for this role, we’ll find the right working approach for you.
