At ROQ we believe software should work properly; a simple statement, but it’s the one thing that gets us out of bed each and every day so that we can make a difference. We have established ourselves as pioneers in the software testing arena by creating the UK’s Premier Test Lab, growing from a small office in Preston to our new, purpose built 150-seat headquarters in Chorley, complete with an American diner-themed kitchen, games room and dynamic work areas.
We can only continue to deliver a great service to our clients by having a strong, experienced, and enthusiastic team. To support us in our vision to continue to be the UK’s Premier Test Lab, we are always on the look-out for people with passion who care about quality and are committed to working as part of a team to make this a reality.
We say it all the time: you can’t pay people to care. Therefore, we recruit our people because they already care, and that’s what makes the difference. We look for individuals who are passionate about what they do, excited at the prospect of joining a dynamic, expanding company and eager to contribute to its future success.
Innovation is key to what we do. We expect ideas and initiative to come not just from the top, but from anywhere and everywhere within the company. All of our people are empowered and involved in our success – and we’re looking for more people to join them. People who think independently, relish new challenges and are just as ready to learn from others as they are to share their own skills.
As well as the traditional benefits like pensions and holidays, we have established a broad range of additional perks to help make your work life more enjoyable. As a caring employer, we aim to offer the type of support that makes a real difference.
