We are looking to recruit an experienced and hands-on Senior Software Test Engineer who can help to ensure that the software we create and deliver to our clients is of the highest quality and meets their needs.

The Role

You will be involved in all aspects of testing throughout the project lifecycle, from initial development testing through to final acceptance by the client.

You will also act as a mentor and advisor to other less experienced members of the testing team. Your responsibilities will include :

  • Performing manual system and regression testing of applications before they are released to clients.
  • Reviewing applications against requirements during development to confirm that all requirements have been met.
  • Working with Project Managers and Technical Leads to produce test plans.
  • Collaborating with developers to ensure that test scripts are adequate and appropriate.
  • Advising developers on automated test scripts and helping generate them.
  • Working with clients as they test and accept applications, advising and assisting, as necessary.
  • Mentoring other less experienced testers on good practice and reviewing their work.
  • This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with many of our projects. You will further your own skills and experience by gaining exposure to the wide variety of clients we work with and the broad range of sectors we operate in.

    The role could involve travel to our other UK offices and client sites, so we are happy to consider candidates who wish to be based any of our UK locations (Abingdon, Stevenage, Warrington, Ashby).

    As well as a competitive salary and benefits package, we offer an industry-leading training package. All staff are given an annual training allowance of 150 hours, which can be used to learn new technologies, develop soft skills or earn recognised professional qualifications.

    Requirements

    If you are interested in joining us as a Senior Software Test Engineer, you should have :

  • BSc (min. 2.1) in a technical subject, e.g. computer science, science, maths, engineering.
  • Experience in project-based, manual software testing.
  • Ability to work independently on several projects at once, sometimes as the only tester on a project.
  • Experience of mentoring less experienced testers and reviewing their work.
  • Good interpersonal skills in order to tactfully handle interactions with developers about bugs in their code.
  • Experience of preparing test plans is desirable.
  • Test automation experience would also be an advantage.
  • Experience in non-functional testing, performance / load testing, or security testing would also be an advantage.
