"I work on automated testing, which is something that I only touched on at university so I am finding it really interesting work. Testing also gives me the opportunity to do some development too, so it is the best of both worlds. I run daily tests as soon as I get in to check the state of our systems and then spend the rest of the day writing code for tests and creating test suites. I had no experience of automated testing when I started but found it really easy to pick up."
