About us

Our values, which have been set by our people (not the management) are Integrity, Accountability, Pride and Passion, Courage, Ambition and Initiative, Collaboration, and Caring.

About the role

As the Senior Test Engineer you will be responsible for:

Test data: responsible for both the quality and quantity of suitable test data as required, and the identification of a range of appropriate use cases ensuring the data set is fit for purpose to test the project through all required test processes outlined within the plan.

Product Verification: responsible for the overall quality of the delivery from a test perspective. The test engineer is not a one person test team, but an orchestrator of quality and expectations that the dev must uphold to deliver success.

Test Process: responsible for overall quality of the test process required for the Call Off in accordance with the test plan. For example, identifying and defining non-functional requirements, Unit test coverage and quality, API, Integration, E-2-E and Performance testing, to a sufficient level of quality. Mentoring and coaching the development teams in the execution of these processes.

Day to Day: The Senior Test Engineer will be responsible for defining the test strategy for each product at Epic, Feature and Story level and providing a layer of governance over the end to end process to ensure quality and best practise. You will be guiding the identification, and construction, of suitable Acceptance Criteria for the work that the teams are refining, contributing towards test outcomes, identifying and tracking bugs, you’ll learn new ways of doing things and we will learn from you. You’ll have the freedom and autonomy to do your best work, with plenty of support along the way.

Here are some things we’ve worked on recently that might give you a better sense of what you’ll be doing day to day:

  • Infrastructure (design confirmation) testing is currently done using AWSpec with Test Kitchen and some in-house additions. It is Ruby and Rspec based.
  • “Today I'm doing API testing using Cypress - first time! just got it working - but we also use REST Assured with Cucumber and Selenium. ”
  • “For UI testing, Cypress is now my preference by a long way, particularly for newer UIs that use React based code.” We also have Cucumber with Selenium (java) UI tests.
  • We use Javascript or Typescript for Cypress.

About you

We’re looking for someone with experience to lead the testing of the products we work on. You should be able to demonstrate to a high level:

  • Defining a test strategy, especially across multiple teams.
  • Collaborating on testing in a scaled agile environment.
  • Stakeholder management.
  • Identifying test objectives.
  • Defining organisational policies.
  • Coaching the teams in what/how to test the required acceptance criteria.
  • Championing best practice.

Knowledge of testing in a cloud native environment is preferred, although not essential. Solid fundamentals with software testing, systems integration testing, problem solving, and teamwork pave the way.

You might have a degree, it might be in a related field. You might not, and you can demonstrate how you’ve trodden the path for yourself.
