APD Software Quality Assurance Engineer Hull Based Do you wish you could program a Sphero? In your spare time, can you be found trying to 'break' software to discover how it works? Are you the type of 'tester' who buzzes when you've broken software? Are you the Bain of a developers' life? If so, CSG have a retained opportunity that may be right for you. We are partnering with a company who strive to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to providing telecoms solutions for businesses that rely on communication and speed to save lives. As part of a scrum team, this role has been created to ensure that all software provided by the company is as secure as they can possibly make it. From computer lab to portable communication device to vehicle, these cutting-edge telecoms solutions will the best (and fastest) on the market. A bit about you You will get satisfaction from breaking/finding the chinks of a program during its infancy. You will play Devil's advocate with all elements of software to find any issues, before the customer does! You take pride in your work. You want the very best from any product you've been involved with. You will go home happy - if you find a way to break the software, it means your hunch was right. You will be proud working for a company that provides the telecoms solutions that keep all of our families safe. You can comfortably judge when it's time to stop testing - when the testing has been exhausted, not when you are. What do you need? You have ideally previously worked in a scrum team structure, with agile or waterfall methodologies. Or if you can demonstrate that you are an adaptive learner, you may still be considered. Ideally, you will have experience of working with ISO standards. A bit about the role The function of this role is to come up with comprehensive test strategies to ensure all communications systems the company provides are as resilient as possible. You will carry out website testing, systems testing, and stress testing. You will be tasked with which tests to apply and when - you will understand the broader view. You'll need to be a capable team player and communicator, both trusted and trusting, as you'll be working on varied projects with the rest of our Software team. What's in it for you? - Fun, fun, fun. 'If you love what you do, you will love doing it with us' - Progression, or as much as you would like. My client truly believes that their staff is the lifeblood of the business. If you're progressing, so are they. - A unique working day. It's a cliché, but because of the type of environment my client has built, it really is a case of no 2 days being the same. - Technology is their world. Every toy, gadget, app and system, along with a few extra will be available to you and get this, they pay you to play with them! While this company has been in operation for 30 years, their success comes as a result of updating and developing the best practices in all areas of their business. Each employee is professional and cares deeply about what they do. If you gravitate towards driven but charismatic close-knit groups, you'll fit in here. If you have stories about your previous successes in a software testing role (or in a personal capacity), we'd love to hear them. All contact will remain confidential throughout our recruitment process.
