An award-winning software house is looking for an experienced QA Automation Engineer to join a team building a brand-new integration platform which sits on their growing product suite.

They’re aiming to be a disruptor in the market and really tapping into employee experience and comparing how different teams collaborate.

  • Proven experience of automated testing using various design patterns (i.e. Page Objects).
  • Significant experience of working in an Agile environment (Scrum, JIRA).
  • Extensive background in writing automated test scripts in Selenium/Postman, preferably for web apps and REST API’s written in Java.
  • Good knowledge of load testing, preferably using JMeter though Gatling is also beneficial.

What you’ll be doing 
 
Joining a cross-functional team of QA, Release Engineers and Product Owners, you’ll be working in a highly Agile environment to implement a new product into the wider employee engagement platform. You will be working with other engineers in the team to fully understand the system architecture to ensure you are using the most effective automation tools for acceptance testing and product integration at all times. Focusing on performance, stress and load, you will be implementing automated test suites across the entire application, as well as providing your own input into the platform architecture in order to assure best practice for testing and continuous delivery.

The business offers a great range of rewards which includes 25 days holiday (plus your Birthday off!), private healthcare, life assurance, income protection etc. You’ll also get access to their award-winning online benefits scheme, which includes discounts on travel, cinema tickets, gym discounts and even a company car programme (effectively a ‘cycle to work scheme’ but for cars!).
