Embedded Software Test Engineer
Salary: £40K per annum
Firmware/Embedded Software Tester required for a company in Edinburgh.
This company has developed an end-to-end security product that is in high demand. They have recently been acquired by a household name (due to the popularity and reach of the product) which will allow them to develop their reach across the globe.
They are looking to bring on a Test Engineer who has some level of embedded software testing experience to join a friendly team (I've met them!).
The role requires testing across firmware on the various hardware products that the company offer, as well as working closely with the original manufacturers of the products. It won't be just testing across one device, but across several different devices, so there's lots of variety to keep you interested and challenged. There are also plans to develop an automation testing function regarding embedded software testing, which the whole team will be learning together.
On top of this they have implemented a flexible way of working in different pods with the opportunity to jump into different teams for a while to do some on-the-job learning. You'll also have access to things like LinkedIn Learning to allow continuous learning of the things that interest you.
You'll have most of the following skills / experience:
** Strong testing experience
** Experience testing embedded software on firmware (you don't need to be an expert, but this is key to the role!)
** IP and networking experience, particularly IPv4, TCP/IP (a wee bit of this is necessary!)
** Test Management tools like TestLink and Bugzilla
Their offices are based in South Edinburgh but have plans to move to a fancy new office in the West End early 2021. Right now there is free parking onsite and public transport available, but due to COVID they are currently working from home. A mixture of home and office working is expected until at least February.
Core hours for the team are between 10 - 4, with most people working 9 - 5, but the company are happy to accommodate flexible hours.
The salary on offer is up to £40,000 depending on experience. Benefits include private health care and health insurance.
