Welcome to Global Shared Services in Gdansk

Arla is a global farmer-owned organisation that is behind many well-known and loved brands, including Arla Apetina®, Castello®, Lurpak® and many, many more.

As a Senior Test Manager, you become a part of our Global Shared Services in Gdansk. Here, you won’t find factory machines or farmers. Instead, you will join over 400 colleagues dedicated to supporting all of Arla with IT, HR, financial and procurement operations. Joining us, you will take part in our mission to make a real difference for colleagues near and far.

With over 10 years of existence in Gdansk, we offer you a lot of knowledge and the opportunity to partake in challenging and exciting innovation projects.

About the job

As a Senior Test Manager, you will join one of our largest Agile programs called Commercial, which is focused on delivering IT enabled business transformation to our internal Sales, Marketing and Service functions.

Together with the rest of the QA team, you will set the direction for how we work with Test and Quality Assurance when developing our new solutions for the Commercial area.

We are working very close to the business in Arla in cross-functional Scrum teams where business needs and IT solutions are matched to provide the greatest value to Arla. We are a multi-national, multi-functional and very dedicated team working truly agile according to the SAFe framework.

As a Senior Test Manager, your key focus will be to work with 1-2 Scrum teams and implement the QA and test approach in the teams so they master this discipline in an agile environment.

Your primary tasks will be:

  • Enable and Implement the QA and testing approach applied for the program in your project team and ensure it’s aligned with the Program’s test strategy
  • Drive the QA and testing approach set for the train with respect to functional system integration and provide valuable inputs to teams to ensure its fit for purpose
  • Coach and train the team members in the needed QA processes and tools
  • Own and Monitor the overall system testing plan and QA and drive the actions to improve where needed
  • Guide the automation team to ensure the right level of test automation is done for updating regression suites

What do we offer?

We are a farmer-owned Scandinavian company that values trust, collaboration and initiative. You will therefore have the opportunity to share your own ideas and try new things on your own, and of course you will have plenty of development opportunities.
