Software Test Automation Engineer (25063)

£35,000 to £45,000 + benefits

Progress your career in software test automation on Windows platform

This Software Test Automation Engineer works closely with the engineering and deployment teams to develop Windows tools used mostly for commercial applications. The tools require a good understanding of Windows internals as it provides a technology platform for the OS.

The company is looking for a career-minded Software Test Engineer who wants to take that next step – work on interesting problems and design automated tests to lay the foundations to prove these innovative solutions. Please note this is not a Software Tester role or Test Analyst role – an understanding of software engineering practices and automated testing is central for this position.


  • 2+ years commercial experience in a QA software test team (although if you could demonstrate 6+ months working on technical projects and developing test automation, applications would be considered).
  • Programming experience in writing test automation tools / frameworks.
  • Experience with Python or C# (ideally both).
  • Experience writing test automation using Selenium.
  • Experience with Windows OS.

The role would suit a second jobber, or someone who is looking for that next step in their software test engineer career. The company provide a supportive work environment, including the tools to allow you to do your job well. They also provide flexibility and a human understanding to allow you to do your best work.

They provide an excellent remuneration package and smaller perks such as car parking spaces in central Cambridge, gym membership discounts and frequent free lunches during the week.

Keywords: Windows, Python, C#, Selenium, Mid-Level, 2nd-Jobber, Automation, Central Cambridge
