Senior Test Analyst - Front-end
Salary: £35K - £42K per annum

Senior Test Analyst required to join a renowned organisation in the heart of Edinburgh. The company have a great reputation, and this is an ideal time to join, with no shortage of projects to get involved in from the very early stages.

The Company:

A well-known company, who are at the forefront of their market in Scotland. Established and secure, the company offer the opportunity to get involved in some new projects that will shape the future of their business. Although an established organisation, the company pride themselves on their ability to retain the feel of a smaller, more reactive organisation.

Consistently voted as a great company to work for (they've won awards for this), they're a champion of their employees - promoting internally, and helping employees achieve their goals. The company offer a lot of autonomy and are against micro-managing - they consistently offer an enjoyable, friendly and motivated working environment.

The Role:

You'll be coming on board to work within a small and specialised testing team. Looking after the front-end focused testing of the company's website(s) and e-commerce platform, the role will include helping to develop the independent testing function within this team. It's a great opportunity to take autonomy for the testing processes and some of the testing strategy that will actively affect the outcome of some of the major changes coming within the company.

The role is based within a fast-paced environment, where you will be expected to take on multiple projects at the same time - meaning you'll never be bored! The team works in an Agile way and allow for the flexibility to adjust working processes to whatever way works best for the team. You'll be a massive part of working with the team to help define this.

As with any testing role, you must be able to create effective test plans, and ideally have an idea of how to create a rough testing strategy to follow. Although a small team, looking after more junior testers and you would be keen to continue this.

Being an all-round generalist tester is key to this role as some strong experience under your belt.


You'll be a confident Manual Tester with previous experience in a commercial testing environment. If you have some additional experience of automation testing, this will be a massive advantage, but is not completely essential to the role.

You'll enjoy being a methodical and proactive functional tester with an ability to place yourself in the role of the customer, and really understand the mindset of someone entering a website for the first time, or a returning customer is a great skill to bring to the role.

Personality-wise you'll be a self-sufficient worker and a confident communicator - you won't shy away from working with developers as this is a key part of the role, and you'll be happy to suggest better ways to improve the testing process.

Salary & Location:

The company is based in the city centre with ample transport links.

In addition to a salary of up to £42,000, the company offer a great benefits package (one of the best!) which includes an annual bonus and a generous matched pension contribution.

The company works with cutting edge technology and is recognised as being at the top of its game, with a project portfolio in the hundreds of millions. They have a forward-thinking company culture, with flexible working and an autonomous working environment.
