About The Role

This role will be based Mon-Fri at our Head Office in Barton-upon-Humber, therefore you must be located within a commutable distance.

About the Role: 

At Wren we are working on cutting-edge tools that enhance the customer experience throughout the purchase of their dream kitchen or bedroom. 

As we venture forth, expanding from a UK-based company into the US market, our development team is constantly expanding and again we find ourselves needing to grow our Quality Assurance team even further. Our team is made up of talent from many industries - games, mobile, web applications - and homegrown through our apprentice programmes.

It will be your job to test the software we build many times over in order to spot any bugs and mistakes that need to be addressed.
