In the role, you will also get exposure to the processes and forums within the project lifecycle and given the opportunity to participate as a QA lead by liaising and supporting the offshore testing team and reviewing and approving test deliverables produced by the offshore team.
As part of your technical build rotation you will spend ten weeks studying either .Net or mainFrame programming abroad. These courses are specifically built to provide you with an understanding of how to programme “the Experian way”, giving you an introduction into how Experian systems and solutions are put together. On the completion you will spend a further two weeks shadowing offshore development teams, where you will further develop your knowledge of Experian products and develop relationships with these teams.
