  • Understanding of the project lifecycle, particularly testing and the ways service virtualisation can be used in different test phases
  • Good analytical and design skills
  • The ability to communicate effectively with stakeholders, team members and technical subject matter experts
  • A forward thinking approach and the ability to find efficiencies and innovations
