QA Test Engineer

 

Are you an experienced QA Test Engineer proud of testing skills? Would you like to work with a likeminded, highly skilled team of testers & developers? Do you want to work with a leading company that it globally recognised as a leader in its market sector? Read on….

 

They make great software that their users love. You’ll be working in a small team with developers & a product owner to test the flagship software product, used by world leading companies. They are passionate about creating software to the best of their ability & work hard to understand our users’ needs, working with autonomy but collaboratively on all aspects of the project lifecycle.

 

What testers do:

 

They are increasing use of automation in testing, & make good use of that in performance, load & smoke testing. However, there’s still lots of manual testing to do, & do so all the way from test design, setup & execution for new features, through exploratory testing to regression testing of a suite of products at regular intervals.

 

They work closely with product owners to define features & priorities, allowing them to get involved in understanding customer needs & balancing them against development costs. They use Agile processes & have daily stand-ups & regular retrospectives to keep honest & transparent. They take continuous improvement seriously & everyone’s opinion is valid & listened to. They use Jira to host a Kanban board, & show key metrics & TeamCity build status on a team radiator.

 

The ideal candidate will have:

 

  • Professional experience in software testing (including writing test case as well as running them)
  • Experience of using test automation tools such as Selenium WebDriver, NUnit, TestStack.White, SpecFlow or Coypu.
  • A good understanding of current software testing methodologies & ideas.
  • Strong analytic & diagnostic skills.
  • An aptitude for programming / scripting.
  • Strong numerical skills & the ability to understand complex systems.
  • Strong interpersonal & communication skills.
  • Enthusiasm for learning, & adapting to, new technologies.

 

Some of the things you might be doing:

 

  • Working closely with the Product Owner & Lead developer to design a set of test cases to cover new functionality
  • creating suite of automated smoke tests in support of our continuous integration environment
  • automation of our regression testing suite via our evolving automation test framework
  • Investigating new ways in which we could extend the reach of our performance, load & security testing capabilities.
