QA / Software Test Engineer - Automation (23581)

£Excellent + Benefits

Agile, Software Test, QA, Work-Life Balance, Automation, Flexible Working

This business software development team based in Cambridge (part of a global company) is looking for an experienced QA / Software Test Engineer to work closely with their engineering team. Key areas include test automation experience and system integration understanding.

The role would suit a second or possibly third jobber who has gained experience working on full cycle software development including product releases through 2 week Agile sprints; and at this time, they are looking for more responsibilities and a company to support their career development.


  • Degree qualified (BA / BSc / BEng) – ideally in engineering / software related subject.
  • Industry experience in QA / software testing including significant experience with software test automation (exact tools used are not important, what we’re keen to see is a good software engineering understanding and how your automated testing fits into quality practices for well-engineered products).
  • Ideally experience with Agile processes such as Scrum or Kanban.

Candidates of interest are those who seek continual self-development, and who take pride of their career in software QA. In return, the company provide an excellent working space, a collaborative team environment, support of your career (looking to take advanced ISEB / ISTQB certifications? this company will support you), as well as a competitive salary. Flexible working is also available for the right candidate including provisions for occasional working from home (note this is not a remote working position, but the company will try to support your work-life balance).

No company sponsorship is available. All interested candidates must have the right to work in the UK. Preference is for Cambridge / UK based candidates.
