LOCATION: Halifax, West Yorkshire

SALARY: £40,000 - £50,000

START DATE: asap

THE PROJECT:

This is an opportunity to work for a leading Internet of Things (IoT) company who are going through an exciting period of growth.

You will join the company as the sole Software Test Engineer, who will be responsible for testing the companies IoT platform and cloud-based software (hosted on AWS).

There is a Systems Test Engineer that you will work with, but this person is responsible for testing the hardware (rather than the software which you will be tasked with testing).

In this role you will have opportunity to create and take ownership of the company's software testing function, and it is envisaged that you will grow this team in the future (with you managing the team if you wish).

The Technical Director is wishing to automate as much of the testing as possible. As such you should have Manual and Automated test development experience. It is your choice which test scripting language to develop in (e.g. Python, Perl, C#, JavaScript etc).

The software that you will be testing is developed in-house as well as by local 3rd party developers (in Leeds and Wakefield). As such you should feel confident communicating with internal and external developers.

If you would like a role where you can take ownership of a company's testing and validation function, creating it from the start, then this is a role for you.

There is genuine career progression on offer, as you will have opportunity to grow and manage this team.

SKILLS REQUIRED:
  1. Comfortable taking ownership of all software test and validation (experience in a Test Lead role, or a willingness to step into a lead role will be considered)
  2. Manual and Automated Test development
  3. Automated Test Script development (using any language e.g. Python, Perl, JavaScript, C#)
  4. Creating Test Strategies
  5. Creating Test Cases
  6. Executing test scripts and recording the results
  7. Excellent communication skills (comfortable speaking to interview and external developers)

DESIRABLE EXPERIENCE:
  1. Knowledge of Web Technologies, IoT platforms or Cloud
