Salary: £50K - £65K per annum
A pioneering tech company in Glasgow are looking to bring on board a technically hands-on Test Manager.
The company are leaders in their (niche!) field, and have done some interesting and varied projects across the UK from Shetland to Glasgow, as well as further afield (the rest of the UK, Europe and the US).
You'll be working and leading the QA team members across both the software and the hardware testing function, so a little bit of hardware/embedded software testing experience could be really useful (but not necessary!). The focus of the role is towards the software testing side of things, where the team are pushing to develop the automated testing function.
Currently, the testing is split 80/20 in favour of manual testing and the goal is to reverse this, with the bulk of the testing being automated eventually. This means that previous experience helping develop automated testing (and being slightly hands-on in this aspect) would be ideal in this role. As Test Manager, you will be focused on developing and upskilling the team; looking at the software testing implications; building test strategies and ultimately building a testing roadmap for the company.
In the testing team, most of the QA Engineers have more experience testing the front-end of applications, so if you have had more back-end testing experience (or a more holistic experience across application) that would be a big bonus!
The type of work the company do is a little bit different, not your typical software technology company so there's the opportunity to delve in some varied projects that are beneficial to the planet!
You'll have most of the following skills/experience:
**Automated testing (BDD framework, Cucumber, Ranorex)
**API testing - Postman
**Windows and Linux platforms
**Managing the test planning and execution
**Manage the overall testing function, developing best practices and roadmaps as well as strategies
The salary on offer is up to £50,000 -£65,000 dependent on experience, plus an annual bonus (based off company performance). Other benefits include 33 days holiday, 7.5% matched pension contribution and life assurance.
