Graduate Software Test Engineer (25993)

£23k to £28k DoE + benefits

Opportunity to grow into other roles in this expanding audio company

Essentially you will have a proven track record of a strong interest in audio technology. This role involves hands on creation and testing of audio recordings as well as software QA test.

You will be working alongside talented and bright software engineers; to be able to hold your own it is expected you will have a technical degree. It is likely at some point you will have played with a Raspberry Pi which will come in very useful in this position. You will have a desire to learn to programme and may have already created some Python software.

While much of your time can be spent working from home (at present) you will need to be close enough to Cambridge to be able to get into the office to exchange hardware or resolve an issue on the bench.

In this role you will learn about the following:

  • How to configure Linux for Debian platforms
  • A broad understanding of test philosophy, especially automated test
  • Software development approach under Continuous Integration and Deployment
  • Professional level programming in Python

Above all you need to have a proven passion in audio and knowledge of recording equipment. This may be from a hobby project, but you will need to be able to convince them of your skills in this area.

You will join a small company who work with trust and respect of each other in a welcoming environment just to the edge of Cambridge city. Home working is proving effective for this company hence long term they expect to retain a proportion of remote working within R&D. All the time you will have the backing of a friendly and very cooperative bunch of talented engineers happy to assist. Their product will be of major benefit to many people's lives.
