About the Business
This is an opportunity to join a fast growing, upwardly mobile technology business who are shaking the tree in the energy market.

Their software and consultancy services enable businesses to become new suppliers in the energy market and deliver powerful analytics and business efficiency for existing players. They make joining and thriving in this complex, data driven sector as simple as possible. They demystify it for their clients, allowing them to develop their own business at pace and with confidence.

All companies think they are unique, but this business really is something a bit special. Whilst their competitors offer elements of what the market needs, they pretty much do it all! As a result, they have had major success in the past few years, far exceeding their expectations and that's why they are on the lookout for new people to join the fast-expanding team.

There are currently over 130 people based out of their Nottingham city centre offices and they have big plans to grow that number throughout 2019 too. That, hopefully, is where you come in!

About the role
Effectively there is a clean sheet of paper when it comes to defining the test strategy and testing tools, and they absolutely want you to contribute to that process. On a more day to day basis, you will be working closely with like minded test specialists, who in turn, will be working with developers, business analysts and project managers to deliver cutting edge software.

How do they work?
- They are entirely cloud based. No servers at all
- They work in an agile way. Their sprints are 2 weeks in length
- They major on event driven micro service architecture giving them scalability, agility and reliability

What sort of day to day tasks will you be involved in
- Working with Product Owners, Business Analysts and Software developers to define acceptance tests
- Creating and maintaining Test Plans
- Creating and executing test scripts in close collaboration with the development team
- Creating and executing automated regression test scripts
- Facilitating the execution of user acceptance testing
- Creating and manipulating data for use in multiple platforms

What key skills will you need to have
- Automation experience would be ideal but not essential
- Api testing skills are especially welcome
- Integrating automated tests into the build and deployment pipeline using TFS would be awesome.
- Experience of using Microsoft SQL Server (we use MS-SQL 2018) is advantageous
- Some web-based testing experience
- Some exposure to the creation and running of manual and automated test scripts
- ISEB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing or ISTQB-BCS Certified Tester Foundation Level ideal
- Energy industry experience is a nice to have and not an essential

How to apply
Drop them a line with your CV and they will review your details within a week. If you can let them know your current salary and your notice period then that would be really helpful too.
