We are looking for a QA Automation Engineer with experience in developing automated test and build frameworks to complement the capabilities of this company’s current software development team.
In the role of QA Engineer, you will be involved in improving and expanding the automation framework to test the entire product end-to-end. This is a chance to pick up a brand new customised automation tool, developed with a combination of C#, .NET and Python, and work using a Kanban process in a tight-knit team of QA engineers.

There are multiple avenues for career progression including Senior QA roles, or QA team Lead, and this role would provide varied virtualisation and C# development projects, as opposed to just testing, so it would suit someone keen to pick up new skills.

This QA Automation Engineer will need development experience for automated test frameworks. Also good scripting skills, and ideally an appreciation of testing highly scalable products.
Desirable skills include TCP/IP (or similar), experience of AWS virtual provate cloud, and network configurations (e.g. LAN, WAN, VPN).

20% year on year growth for 3 successive years and a mounting list of customers means it’s a great time for a QA Automation Engineer to join. They have created a niche product around patented display and low power communications technology which will soon touch all of our lives. The company’s exploding sales make this an exciting time to join (their sales team has increased by 9 this year). The successful QA Automation Engineer will join a small team (part of a larger R&D group of 23) responsible for developing test automation software for our progressive product range but not just that! This role also has a far reaching scope to keep a hungry QA on their toes!
