Test Team Lead - world-leading company
City of London
Salary: £50K - £65K per annum
Test Lead required to join a leading tech organisation in London.
You'll be joining a world-renowned technology company - which may sound like a big claim. However, in this case it is 100% true. They work with some of the biggest names in technology and provide cutting edge solutions across the globe (like actually all over the world, not just a satellite European office).
The work you do will be used in some of the most interesting products on the market and indeed, in many products which we as consumers don't even know about yet!
As a senior member of the testing team, this role requires someone to be passionate about researching the latest tools and techniques, analysing if they would be of benefit to the company and taking control of implementing this.
Working with both internal and external resources, the role needs someone who is skilled in leading a team, being responsible for the overall design and execution of automated testing, as well as shaping the strategy that is integral to the testing function. Leading the team of testers, you'll be committed to ensuring that each team member is contributing to the overall testing function, and are helping aim to be met to ultimately help provide better quality products.
You will lead by example, keep abreast of emerging technologies and provide coaching and mentorship to the wider team. Working with products you will have knowledge of both software testing and embedded software testing, ensuring a drive to automation (where relevant!) at all times.
It goes without saying that you'll be as strong communicator, as well as providing reports and analysis to stakeholders, justifying actions taken and proposed plans for the future.
You'll also have most of the following key skills or experience:
** Experience of algorithmic technologies
** Hands-on automation testing experience
** Drive towards full automation
** Experience of embedded software testing
** Continuous integration environment
** Leading a large team - internal and external
** Knowledge of Object Orientated Programming
** Experience of either Perl, Python, C or C++
Salary and Location
The company are based near Convent Garden, and easily commutable.
They are keen to keep the role pretty open especially in terms of salary, however as a guide we are looking at between £40-70k.
You will also be entitled to a very generous benefits package and will get assistance from the team if you are relocating to join them. Benefits include bonus, pension, private healthcare, extended annual leave as standard and a number of flexible benefits.
If this role sounds like a fit for you, please apply and/or call Erin Donnelly at Cathcart Associates.
