Job Description

Hello, we’re IG Group. No, not Instagram – though we're a pretty big deal ourselves. We’re a global, FTSE 250-listed company made up of a collection of progressive fintech brands in the world of online trading and investing. The best part? We’ve snapped up many awards for our top-class platforms, forward-thinking products, and incredible employee experiences.

We believe in financial freedom. And our purpose is to help ambitious people achieve it. Around 400,000 people use our groundbreaking technology and forward-thinking platforms to trade the financial products they know and love.

Did we mention we have offices in 18 countries? Yes, when you join IG Group, you'll have the chance to work across multiple brands, with people all over the world. Join us for an exciting future and let’s innovate together!

Your role in the team

Performance Engineering is central team focusing on IG platform capacity. We are highly specialized team working on tools, frameworks and system level tests scenarios mimicking busy production events. Very important part of our work is introducing performance engineering standards, process and evangelizing about it to entire IG company. We help product teams' engineers with improving their performance tests by sharing tools and experience. We play role of architects in the wide domain of performance testing and performance engineering. We decide about the tools we use, constantly looking for new solutions and adopting them.

What You'll Do

As a Senior QA Developer in Performance Testing you will be responsible for:

  • development and maintenance of performance testing framework (Locust)

Who We’re Looking For

You’re curious about things like the client experience, the rapid developments in tech, and the complex world of fintech regulation. You’re also a confident, creative thinker with a knack for innovating. We know that you know every problem has a solution. Here, you can try new ideas, and lead the way in creating inspiring experiences for our clients and everyone around you.

We don’t fit the corporate stereotype. If you want to work for a traditional, suit-and-tie corporate that just gives you a pay cheque at the end of the month, we might not be for you. But, if you have that IG Group energy and you can stand behind what we believe in, let’s raise the bar together

What You'll Need For This Role

When you join IG Group, we want you to have more than a job – we want you to have a career. And you can. If you spot an opportunity, we want you to chase it. Stretch yourself, challenge your self-beliefs and go for the things you dream of. With internal and external learning opportunities, and the tools to help you skyrocket to success, we’ll support you all the way.

And these opportunities truly are endless because we have some bold targets. We plan to expand our global presence, increase revenue growth, and ultimately deliver the world’s best trading experience. We’d love to have you along for the ride.

The perks

It really is more than a job. We’ll recognise your talent and make sure that you can still have a life – at work, and outside of it. Networks, committees, awards, sports and social clubs, mentorships, volunteering opportunities, extra time off… the list goes on:

  • Flexible working hours & hybrid working

  • Private medical cover for you and your family/partner (Medicover)
  • Multikafeteria system (you can choose a multisport card, vouchers, etc.)

  • Well-being events as well as Employee Assistance Programme
  • Summer picnic, New Year party and other social events
  • 3 additional days off a year - 1 to celebrate your Birthday and 2 for voluntary work ?

Where you’ll work

We follow a hybrid working model; we reckon it’s the best of both worlds. This model also feeds into our secret ingredients for innovation: diversity, flexibility, and close connection. Plus, you’ll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive workforce with a lot of creative energy.

Ask our employees what their favourite thing is about working at IG, and you’ll hear an echo of ‘our culture’! That’s because you can come to work as your authentic self. The things that make you, you – like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, age, gender identity/expression or physical capacity – can bring a fresh perspective or new skill to our business.

That’s why we welcome people from various walks of life; and anyone who wants to help us realise our vision and strategy.

So, if you’re keen to connect with our values, and lead the charge on innovation, you know what to do.
