Develop a continuous integration system and complementary tests

The development team (circa ten engineers) wish to move to a more advanced continuous integration system.

There is already a test engineer in the team who can keep the current tests going while you design this new continuous integration approach.

As a software engineer you need to be used to working close to the hardware. This position will give you significant freedom to generate testing concepts and keep up to date with tools and techniques.

In summary your qualities as Software Developer in Test are:

  • Experience maintaining a continuous integration system (Jenkins or Cloudbees)
  • Ability to write test applications using C/C++ and scripting languages
  • Exposure to the design, organisation and manufacture of test fixtures
  • Experience writing and releasing test procedures
  • Degree or similar in a computer science, software or engineering discipline

  • Familiarity with Linux

You will join a team of friendly, dedicated developers working in a central Cambridge location with ample free parking. This is an excellent opportunity to join a global company where most of the hardware development is done in the UK. The Cambridge hardware team has an equal number of software engineers who need an extra pair of hands.
