Senior Software Tester - Successful Software House in Central Glasgow - your opportunity to own a new Test function in a hugely respected technology company.

A well-respected Software House/Consultancy with a twenty year pedigree of supplying public and private sector clients are now seeking an experienced Software Tester. Although their Software Development team are extremely strong, their Test function has lagged behind. There are no dedicated Test Analysts at present, with Developers doing the bulk of the Testing (this is nobody's ideal scenario!). You will have an extremely rare and exciting opportunity to build a Test function, essentially from scratch - you'll put in place robust test methodology, have your pick of technologies and a huge amount of buy-in from the Senior/Leadership team.

It is vital that you have experience in writing test plans/test scripts, can communicate and work effectively with the Development team, as well as non-technical members of the team. Previously experience leading a team and mentoring and training other Testers will definitely stand you in good stead.

The company are extremely well-established - having been in business for around 20 years - and in that time, they've built solid relationships with an impressive range of clients. They continue to win new business and have their pick of interesting projects.

This is an uncommonly good opportunity for an experienced Software Tester to really put their mark on something. As the Test function grows under your guidance, there will be opportunities for quick career progression. This will genuinely be a very satisfying role!

The Senior Management team are hugely invested in the team - they're friendly and easy to get on with as well as hugely invested in the success of the team and every individual's career development. The turnover of staff is very low - their technical staff enjoy the professional yet friendly atmosphere, challenging work and working with the latest technologies.

The company are based just outside of the city centre; walkable distance from Queen Street Station, very near a Subway stop and there is also ample parking onsite.
