I’m recruiting for a Test Lead with a focus on developing their automation approach to join my client. They are based in Bath but you have the option to be permanently fully remote if you don’t mind popping in to their office on the odd occasion.
It is an exciting time to be joining as they have a new CTO starting and are on a journey to transform their ways of working. They currently have 2 development teams with plans to create a third. Each team has 2 testers as part of it and they are now looking to bring on a Test Lead to oversee testing and automation across all teams, providing technical leadership and embedding TDD and BDD as well as a shift left approach across them. You’ll also drive them towards a Software Development in test approach as the target way to work.
You’ll be involved in peer reviews and walkthroughs and whilst it is a lead role they want someone who is happy to roll up their sleeves and get stuck into hands-on testing when necessary. They want someone proactive who will be constantly challenging and evolving their existing practices and processes. Part of the role will be to develop and optimise test KPI’s and dashboards that provide full visibility across all tests and work closely with the development team leads to ensure that testing reaches the definition of sone within each sprint.
The ideal person will have experience working as a Test/ QA lead across projects with knowledge around tools like automation, Selenium, c#, tdd, bdd etc although you don’t necessarily need to have been hands-on with them. Experience with git would be ideal as they use it for their source control. They work in an Agile environment and any experience of working within a SaFE environment would also be beneficial
When life is back to normal there is the option to work a couple of days a week from home with the rest to be office based.
Salary is up to £75,000 plus bonus and good benefits. If you’d like to hear more please apply below to Sam Miller at SR2 – Socially Responsible Recruitment
