We are looking for someone who is a motivated self-starter and has experience of turning concepts in to reality, can communicate clearly and effectively with their team, and can thrive in a close-knit and growing environment. You'll be the go-to for day to day queries coming from the test team, providing technical expertise to ensure proper test techniques are deployed in the appropriate manner, but also liaising and working closely with the current Head of QA.
The successful candidate will be tasked with reviewing test plans and test scripts, and will have the ambition and willingness to immerse themselves in to the development and testing activities of the team. Tasked with looking after a relatively small team, this person will require the ability to wear many hats, so candidates must be able to display adaptability, people management skills, and overall reliability.
We are looking for candidates coming from similarly senior roles, where you have managed small test functions for a couple of years. If you don't have that exact experience on your skill set, but feel confident in your leadership qualities, then we would definitely relish the chance to speak with you as well. You will be able to demonstrate knowledge of test automation frameworks and tools, with a particular ability to use, and demonstrate the use of, coding and scripting tools.
