System Test Engineer (25232)

to £40k

A hands-on, client-facing role including manual, automated, and field testing

Do you enjoy problem solving? This multifaceted test role would have you provoking, isolating and diagnosing anomalies within a complex telematics and data streaming system to ensure that it is rugged and delivers the very best performance possible. You would be joining an enthusiastic team of engineers working for a world-renowned engineering company and would be involved with a variety of activities such as:

  • Collaborating internally and externally with customers’ engineering teams to understand their needs and concerns, and championing their interests in internal discussions
  • Designing, authoring and executing automated tests using your excellent Python skills
  • Designing and building test hardware
  • Triaging and troubleshooting symptoms reported by colleagues and clients
  • Field testing the system

You will need:

  • A good degree in electronics or a similarly applicable STEM subject from a well-recognised university
  • Strong Python scripting skills and an understanding of software and system testing
  • Excellent problem solving and communication skills with excellent attention to detail
  • A driver’s licence as some field work will be involved.

This is a role that would suit a proactive, hands-on engineer who would enjoy a combination of scripting, digging into the data to pit your wits against the system and pin down elusive root causes, and also get out and about operating real hardware.
