Lead Test Analyst/Software Tester/QA - exciting start-up!

£30-35k + flexible working environment + 10% pension + 25 days holiday.

Lead Test Analyst with at least three years' experience in a hands-on software testing/quality assurance role, preferably but not essentially coupled with exposure to test automation frameworks, required by exciting multi-award winning start-up company based in the heart of Ipswich.

As the Lead Test Analyst within a small team of three, your role will be very much hands-on as you lead the preparation & execution of manual tests of enhancements to my client's award winning Cloud/SaaS software. However, you will also have responsibility for planning, monitoring & directing the work of the other two test analysts. As such, a driven/proactive approach together with an ability to inspire/motivate others & lead by example would also be anticipated. Other core responsibilities would include;

  • analysing functional specifications to develop test strategy, estimates & plans
  • scheduling test preparation & execution (maximising the skills of other team members to achieve testing objectives)
  • translating detailed requirements into test suites & cases
  • liaising with developers & business analysts to achieve efficient fixes & resolve identified issues
  • driving forward the company test strategy, developing test policies & exploring potential test automation where appropriate

The successful candidate can look forward to a really flexible & positive working atmosphere in which employees are truly valued & recognised for the difference they make on a day-to-day basis. In addition to a competitive basic salary, a good degree of autonomy & a flexible working environment, my client offers an excellent benefits package including a 10% employer pension contribution. You can also look forward to exceptional opportunities for personal development & career progression as the company continues to grow.
