Job description

If you’re creative and curious to learn, want to be empowered to make decisions and challenge the norm, and want to bring BIG ideas to a MASSIVE digital challenge then you’ll love it here. And we’d love to hear from you.

We’re looking for talented Test Environment Engineers to join our growing community of experts and become a key part of one of the biggest and highest-profile digital transformation programmes in the world.

Using fresh ideas and leading edge technologies – and putting the user at the centre of everything we do – we create innovative digital solutions for frontline colleagues and our 22 million users.

You and your role

As you’ll be joining our Infrastructure Engineer community, we refer to this role in DWP as an Infrastructure Engineer – Desktop. The role though is closest to a Test Environment Engineer or Test Environment Manager, and you will be responsible for operation, support, and maintenance of test environments.

You’ll support the end-to-end testing of a range of business critical applications and underpinning infrastructure. A good knowledge of virtual platforms (eg Nutanix AHV, VMWare, Citrix) is required as is a good understanding of the Microsoft stack.

The role is a great opportunity for a capable technical manager in a developing area to define an approach based on best practice.

What skills and experience are we looking for?

Where you’ll work

You’ll join us in our digital hubs Manchester City Centre. Right on St Peter’s Square, we’re really handy for bus, tram and train. And we have a basement level lock-up with showers if you like to cycle in.
