Software Test Lead

I'm looking for a Senior Tester who is looking to make the jump to Lead in a supportive company that will offer you the autonomy to lead your team an invoke the techniques and tools that you prefer. This is your chance to build a Team from scratch in your image and take a position as the Head of QA in the coming years but initially it will be a case of providing QA directly to the Head of Development and assisting with the creation of the product.

This role is about 60% hands on, with the other 40% consisting of management/pastoral/mentoring. This is an opportunity to lead from the front to shape your own career, as well as those of the Testers that you are mentoring.

The company has started up this year and despite shaky market conditions, has already secured upwards of £10 Million in investment and is looking to completely take over from the current market leaders.

Where?: They are a Cardiff-based Software house but this role can be part remote if you would prefer.

What's in it for you?: Aside from a Salary of around £45,000 you will receive a pension and 25 days paid holiday. As the company grows they will also be looking at creating share opportunities.

Technical requirements:

  • Strong Leadership experience
  • Automation Testing Experience (Ideally in C# or Java)
  • Postman for API
  • Experience with Azure DevOps would be ideal
  • Strong manual skills are a must

If this sounds like something that you would be interested in, please apply immediately!
