Software Test Analyst - Graeme Taylor, Wincor Nixdorf
”My experience on-site at Wincor has been career changing: I have worked here for over 3 years now, meeting various new people and making contacts in the industry that ware vital for the future. My day-to-day role consists mainly of system testing and system integration testing. During my first 2 and half years at Wincor I progressed from a Junior Test Analyst to the senior role that I am in today, and am now responsible for training new testers and helping them on a daily basis. The best thing about FDM is the flexibility for career progression. After completing the two year Graduate Programme as well as travelling for 6 months, I came back to FDM as a permanent employee and Senior Test Consultant. I now enjoy a rewarding role in a great company as Senior FDM Consultant.”
