Automation Tester

I'm looking for a Technical Tester who is looking to make the jump to work in a supportive company that will offer you the autonomy to invoke the techniques and approaches that you prefer, while providing the support to allow you to develop your own skillset further. Our current broad QA Function is held up by the development team, some of whom come from Testing backgrounds so you will have educated support from the off.

We operate as an Environmentally concious, risk mitigation company, producing software that creates a more sustainable and safer world for everyone. We are also a Microsoft environment so knowledge of C# would be desirable, though any basic understand of an OO landguage will be valued.

What we really need is someone to come in and take ownership of the QA function, treat it as a blank slate and work autonomously to elevate Test coverage. That may sound like a daunting task but there are a number of supporting factors to put you at ease. For one, you will have an incredibly supportive Development team, working with you on this process. For two, they operate in a relatively low pressure environment so you can work at a pace that suits you to establish robust process and really get things right.

Where?: We are a Cardiff-based Software house but this role can be predominantly remote if you would prefer. We would ideally like someone who can be in on a weekly basis.

What's in it for you?: Aside from a salary of around £45,000 with regular review, you will also get an 11% Pension and 33 days paid holiday per annum.

Technical requirements:

  • Strong communication skills
  • C# or Java and Selenium or JavaScript with Cypress, Wedbriver.iO or Protractor
  • Specflow or Cucumber for BDD
  • Postman for API
  • Experience with Git would be ideal
  • Strong manual skills are a must
  • Non-functional abilities are a plus

If this sounds like something that you would be interested in then please apply immediately at the link or contact Daniel Erasmus on LinkedIn.
