About the QA team at Abcam
Abcam is on a journey of a multi-year investment in its core IT systems. Our architectural landscape which supports our industry leading E-Commerce platform will consist of in-house developed systems utilising middleware solutions (WebMethods) to incorporate Oracle Cloud ERP as well as other packaged systems (Cloud and On-Premise). As well as our agile teams, QA is a cross-cutting function or "guild".

You will have a degree in computer science, or in a numerate or scientific discipline, or have equivalent experience.
