Test Engineer - Edinburgh or Glasgow
Central Belt
Salary: £30K - £35K per annum

A well-known Scottish company are looking to bring on several QA Engineers (manual and automation) to their offices in Edinburgh or Glasgow.

The Role

The Testing team is still in it's infancy - but will play an important part in the growth of the technical team and the company's journey towards a more modern tech stack and more web-based product. It is important to them that Testing is considered at every stage of growth.

Each Tester has the opportunity to own an individual project - and to move to new projects periodically to make sure that they're gaining exposure to different technologies/team members. It is therefore a great opportunity to gain experience across a variety of tools and projects.

Day to day, the role requires someone to carry out manual and automated testing across mobile, web-based and desktop-based applications - you will need to have some coding experience (you'll have help from the Development team to build on your existing skills here). There is a foundation laid for automated testing to be implemented, so the company are keen to bring someone on board who has a passion to develop their skills in this area.


As the only Tester allocated to a certain project, you will be proactive and self-managing, and can work autonomously. There is a QA Manager overseeing the Testers, but they will not always be on site.

Some experience to modern technology is needed - this organisation is undergoing a huge push to upgrade everything - and so you will need to be someone with a similar mindset of ensuring your skills are up-to-date. If you are someone who actively researches the market, and new tools and trends, even better.

You will have experience with most of the following:

** Agile methodology

** Manual and automated testing

** One or more of the following languages - Java, Python, C#

** One or more or the following tools - Selenium, Fitnesse, Cucumber, SpecFlow, LoadRunner

** Creating SQL queries

** Testing across web-based, desktop-based and mobile applications

** Working as a sole Tester on a project

Salary and Location

Without a doubt, this company have one of the best benefits packages going for them with 41 days holiday and a 19.3% contribution from the company, before you put in your own contribution.

On top of this, other perks include online shopping discounts, canteens on site, childcare vouchers, saving schemes and season ticket loans.

Career development and a good work-life balance is high up on the agenda for this organisation, with well-being programmes to opportunities to gain formal qualifications relevant to your role and career.

The salary on offer is from around £30,000 - £35,000 depending on experience.

The role is open to both the company's Edinburgh and Glasgow office. The Glasgow office is centrally located, only minutes' walk from the Glasgow Central Train Station, with reduced parking close by. The Edinburgh office is located right off the City Bypass and close to good public transport links with parking also available on site.

If this role sounds interest, please do apply and/or reach out to Erin Donnelly at Cathcart Associates.
