Agile Test Engineer, Software and Electronics (23631)

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
to £55k plus benefits

Agile test, craftsperson, software and hardware, work life balance

If you’re a skilled software test engineer who enjoys their craft, and has an active interest in promoting and developing it – and if you’d also enjoy the chance to play with exciting new hardware, applying your skills to a new field – this may just be the role for you.

This Cambridge product company produce an award-winning software + hardware product. They apply Scrum processes with great success and their testers are real enthusiasts who are valued for their work.

You’ll have the chance to play a key role as part of a relaxed, technical team, and to share your ideas and experiences with the Cambridge agile testing community through company supported workshops and conference trips.

You will need:

  • A 1st or 2:1 degree in a technical subject from a world-class university
  • Commercial experience as a test engineer for a software / hardware company
  • To be the sort of person who can ably apply and discuss test strategies, approaches to exploratory testing, and automation techniques – and who would enjoy conversations with your peers on these topics
  • A strong CV which goes beyond the “what” and shows your appreciation of the context of your work
  • Something to help your CV stand out from the crowd: a GitHub account showing strong code / scripts you’ve written, a well-written blog on software testing, or evidence of personal interest projects in e.g. Arduino / Raspberry Pi which you’d enjoy discussing at interview
