Automation Test Engineer required for a global company in Edinburgh.
Having been around for 25 years, this company has developed an end-to-end security product that has helped tens of thousands of people and companies.
Due to company growth and success, workloads are increasing across the company. Because of this, it makes sense for the team to look at the testing function, and concentrate on ways to increase output and make a smoother, more efficient process to improve the overall development lifecycle.
The team are looking for someone to come in and concentrate on the automated testing side of things, and day to day, look at introducing test automation and identifying what to automate.
As it's a new role for the company, it needs someone to help educate the team on the tools and technologies that will do the job best.
Although fairly autonomous as a role, you'll be based within a highly collaborative Agile team, working closely with developers in particular to ensure the automated testing is scaled up and maintained.
The team are fairly relaxed but you are expected to be organised and motivated, as well as being an active voice that will contribute to the improvement of the testing process. You need to be confident working as a sole tester.
You will experience with most of the following:
** Ideally experience creating automation frameworks, or editing and maintaining existing ones
** Able to identify what to automate
** Agile environment
** Continuous integration
Salary and Location
Based in South Edinburgh, the office (which is their HQ) is based off the City Bypass. There is free parking onsite, and public transport available from the centre of Edinburgh.
The salary on offer is up to £45,000 depending on experience. Benefits include private health care and health insurance as well as the opportunity to become a company shareholder through their share incentive plan (which awards free matching shares after three years).
Core hours for the team are between 10 - 4, with most people working 9 - 5, but the company are happy to accommodate flexible hours (for example, for those travelling from Fife).
