Use your judgement to decide the best approach for testing intricate AI software

This test role is ideal for someone who likes a challenge, enjoys solving intricate puzzles and is committed to continually improving their skills.

Our client is a well-respected company in Cambridge at the forefront of AI data mining technology. They seek curious minds, flexible personalities and people with a practical approach to software testing to join their energetic team.

Their test engineers are a core part of their business, not only testing software but assisting with new cloud deployments, and supporting application specialists on consulting projects. Test engineers are encouraged to use their experience and judgement to assess the appropriate approach for the situation, and could utilise exploratory testing, checklists, test scripts, tools or automated testing.

  • A good degree in a technical subject from a well-respected university plus at least three years’ commercial experience in software testing

  • Knowledge of web services and applications such as REST, HTTP and Fiddler
  • Programming experience in at least 3 of the following languages: Perl, Python, Java, C++, JavaScript
