At a glance you’ll need:

  • Experience with a variety of testing tools, languages and approaches; ideally open source.
    • Automation test scripting.
    • Building automation frameworks.
    • Selenium, Specflow, Ranorex, Cypress, TestComplete, Postman, Karate or similar.
  • Experience with cloud desirable, ideally AWS, but any would be cool.
  • Non-Functional Testing experience is also highly desirable.
  • Experience in Agile and or Lean environment essential.
  • API testing experience.

Working with a company expanding its advanced technology team we’re looking for an open-minded automation tester who can establish a test focused mentality within the current dev focused team and improve overall test coverage, formalise the test strategy and look to introduce Non-functional testing too.

If you can comfortably write and execute automated scripts, possibly in a variety of languages and build frameworks, and have experience leading teams small or large, mentoring and coaching and working collaboratively with those around you; then you could be a good fit.

I’m looking for someone with lots of experience using open-source tools and languages, particularly experience with Selenium. The company are looking to utilise as much modern technology as possible, currently expanding (further) into Kubernetes, Docker, Visual Studio, .Net core, Karate, Postman and loads more.

They want someone who is willing to throw ideas about, with the understanding they may not always have the best idea, as it’s a creative and intelligent bunch.  They also want whoever joins to learn about all of the tech the team will be using, so you need to be willing to be constantly learning new technologies. You may get the opportunity to work in a slightly customer facing capacity if you are that way inclined and experienced, and there may be the opportunity to travel, though nobody will be forced to do either.

The salary on offer for the role is up to around £55K, and they’re looking for one senior and potentially a mid-level or junior prospect. We just want passionate testers!

You must be a UK resident and eligible to work in the UK to be considered for this role.
