Test Lead

Work on interesting new web projects for well known brands.

An obsession for detail is essential.

We’re looking for a Test Lead to come and join the ranks of our lean, fast growing, tech-loving, passionate and dynamic team. The projects we are working on are all innovative with amazing frontend design and UX.

You must be familiar with testing web based technologies across a wide range of browsers and devices, ranging from the latest and greatest back to the less so great. You’ll need to be adaptable as we are always looking for better/new ways of doing things, which includes trying out new technologies. You will be confident performing all integration, regression and functional testing required on your project as you are likely to be the sole Tester.

You’ll be comfortable working closely with clients, UX, design and business stakeholders, working together to create executable test cases that cover all major features and functionality. We get you involved early in the project lifecycle to make sure you understand the software you’re tasked with testing.

You’ll have experience working with common defect tracking software such as Jira and will comfortable running defect triaging sessions involving team members and stakeholders.

As you’re likely to be the sole tester on a project, you will be required to define the QA process.

You need to be used to working in an Agile manner. Kanban is a bonus. You’ll be working in a multi-disciplined team surrounded by some of the industry’s best developers, designers, UX designers and testers. If you’ve previously worked in multi-disciplined teams that would be a bonus; if not, you have much to look forward to.

We want you to work closely with all disciplines in the team to help build robust and reliable software. If that sounds like fun, get in touch!
