Experienced manual tester for innovative software tools for Windows

Join a company where software testing is a central part of the engineering process. They develop technology that is deployed on Windows for businesses in all sectors and are always looking to stay ahead of the curve. The company puts their faith in the engineering team, supporting them and providing the best work environment for their employees.

Their latest recruitment drive includes this opportunity to join them as a Senior Software Tester – a career Software Tester who understands the value of good testing and knows how to implement best software test practices.


  • Commercial experience in software testing within the technology sector – including writing manual test cases; executing methodical tests; verifying new features; maintaining test cases, suites and plans; and investigating defects.
  • A pro-active approach to software testing – able to work collaboratively with the software development team.
  • Exposure to Windows administration and configuration.
  • Some experience with test scripts (Python) or browser testing with Selenium would be desirable.

Ideally, interested candidates will have studied computer science at university (if not as the main focus for their degree, at least covered some modules). Applicants must be curious by nature, detail-oriented and enjoy problem-solving. This role would suit a pro-active Software Tester who enjoys going that extra mile whilst appreciating how to deliver projects.

In return, an excellent remuneration package is available including non-traditional benefits (free lunches delivered a couple of times per week, gym discounts, parking in central Cambridge) and usual tech company perks (casual dress attire, healthcare insurance, stock options).
