  • Quality assurance of non‐functional areas such as performance, security etc

Key Requirements:

  • Experience in writing test plans, providing consultation, creating test cases and debugging

  • Experienced in working with and managing continuous integration testing solutions (Jenkins)
  • A good understanding of the principles of functional and nonfunctional testing, and a track‐record of testing
  • Testing front end solutions and technologies for web sites and web applications
  • Experience with systems interface and back end systems testing such as web services, databases
  • Ability to create quality test scripts, acceptance tests and to execute these tests and report issues
  • Develop and execute test plans, test cases, automated test scripts for your own projects within the committed time frames.
  • Manage the running of automated tests in Continuous Integration environments (Jenkins, Gitlab, build tool like Maven, Gradle etc.)

Any experience with Google App Engine testing, BDD testing, or experience in creating automation test scripts using Webdriver would be advantageous.

This is a fantastic opportunity to become a key part of an expanding team where you will enjoy first class support, training, and progression opportunities.
