Senior Automation Tester

I'm looking for a Technical Tester to work in a Fintech, based in Bristol but capable of a good degree of remote, if need be. What's especially good is that they 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. Essentially you would be the first full-on Automation Tester in the Team, so it's an opportunity to build the Automation side of the function from scratch, handle the proof of concept, and guide the existing test team (also remote).

The idea is to enter at Senior Level and help the Head of Development establish an Automation Practice, and then to step into a Lead/Head of role down the line and shape the Test Team into an effective and creative QA force.


We appreciate that being first boots on the ground with Automation can be daunting but we're offering the support of a very talented Dev team. Our company puts so much time and love into their teams and workers in general. It is truly an amazing environment in which to grow and develop your skillset and one that will allow to you to shape your skillset and career with endless support.

Where?: We are a Bristol-based Software house but we are open to flexible working, so long as you live within reasonable commute of our office.

What's in it for you?: Aside from a salary of around £60,000, you will receive company share from the get go as our success is there to be shared. You will also get Private Healthcare for yourself and your partner and 30 days paid holiday plus bank holidays and your Birthday off. We have a lot of fun social perks as well, including an annual trip abroad to the Algarve.


Technical requirements:

  • Strong communication skills
  • Strong C# and Selenium scripting abilities
  • Postman or RestSharp for API (Mostly REST but a little HTTP)
  • Experience with Azure DevOps would be ideal
  • A desire to progress to position of leadership down the line

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