I’m looking for a experienced Software Test Engineer to join my client based in Basingstoke where you will have the option of working 2/3 days a week from home.
It’s a exciting opportunity as you will be joining as their very first Test Engineer. The develop hardware products that connect to desktop and windows based applications, and whilst they have units test in place they don’t have end to end testing. They are looking for someone to take ownership of the testing across their web and desktop products, who can define the strategy and get processes in place whilst being hands on with the testing. You’ll initially be the go to person for all things test although they do envisage this team eventually growing so there is the chance to possibly move into more of a lead role over time if this sort of role appeals.
Initially the role will predominantly involve manual testing, but over time and when you are ready, they are keen to get some automation put in place, more than likely with Python based frameworks. They would love someone capable of looking to gradually introduce automation and build the frameworks.
Some of their products run in a Linux environment so their ideal person would be someone who has worked in these sorts of environments before.
They are ideally looking for an experienced Tester who is able to go in and use their experience and initiative to get things set up properly and who is capable of being able to introduce automation when the time is right. Experience working within Linux based environments is essential, with experience testing C/C++ and Python based products useful.
Salary is anywhere up to £55,000 plus a bonus of up to 20% , flexible hours and a range of other benefits.
