“There is always something new happening at boohoo. Every day is different from the last.”
Why did you apply to work for us?
I wanted a new challenge from my previous workplace and boohoo seemed an ideal fit for me.
What’s the best thing about working for us?
There is always something new happening at boohoo. Every day is different from the last. The best thing has to be the people though. I’ve made some friendships for life whilst I’ve worked here.
How would you describe the culture?
A good mix of people from all backgrounds who come together to achieve one thing, and that is success.
What do you get up to in your role?
I am responsible for all testing which takes place across all of our iOS and Android mobile applications. From sprint planning, to test execution. I work alongside my fellow testers and app developers in order to deliver our monthly app updates out to the public on time without any problems.
How has your career developed since you’ve worked here? E.g. development opportunities, role changes?
I first joined boohoo as a Junior Test Analyst however over the six years of working here I have worked my way up from a Junior, to a Test Analyst and now my current role which is the App Test Team Lead.
What’s been your biggest achievement/proudest moment so far?
I have a few achievements I’m particularly proud of here. Firstly being nominated for Employer of the year back in 2019.
Secondly it is how far I have come in six years I’ve been here. The person I am today would not recognise the young, shy lad who first walked through the doors at Dale Street over six years ago.
And lastly, to be just a small cog in this crazy machine which is boohoo. The company has evolved massively over my time here and to say I have played a small part in that is pretty cool.
What makes someone successful here?
Hard work is key. I’ve always been told if you want something bad enough, you’ll work for it, and succeeding at boohoo definitely requires this kind of mentality.
What do you think makes us unique as an employer?
9-5 we are workaholics but we also know how to throw a good party. Most companies will find it hard to juggle the two but we seem to manage it with ease.
Describe working here in 3 words.
Fast. Fun. Rewarding.
