The role

Indigo Tree is looking for a Support Team Leader.

This is a unique opportunity to lead our busy Support team and oversee the internal Quality Assurance (QA) process for new website development projects. You will be responsible for the smooth daily operation of the Support desk, which attracts client requests via a ticketing system from over 250 clients, who are on a range of care plans.

Utilising your understanding of good, accessible website design and your basic understanding of WordPress, you will have ultimate accountability for our established internal QA process, which is completed on all website development projects. The QA stage is a vital part of the project plan; it ensures that the technical development meets the design specification, the website delivers against the original scope of work and is ready for content to be added prior to cross browser testing.

Working closely with the Project Management team and Engineering team, you will take ownership of the process to ensure we are continually improving and exceeding our client’s expectations. You will lead by example and ensure that the Support and QA have the necessary skills and knowledge to complete the QA process to the highest standard.
