We are looking for a Junior Test Engineer to join our engineering team. The role is currently completely remote, but may require some in office working in the future.

We understand that starting your first job in the tech industry, especially during a pandemic, can be stressful. It is a challenge for employers too.

This includes formal training with a dedicated training provider, and an industry recognised testing qualification.

We will get you working with others to get up and running on real-world development projects from the very beginning.
  • You will work across web, mobile and desktop, following an agile approach with modern development and testing practices. You’ll learn all the skills needed for the best start to your career as part of a talented and thought-leading consultancy team, committed to delivering beyond clients’ expectations.
  • You will be a critical thinker, creative and self-motivated problem solver with a demonstrable passion for technology, looking for an exciting and challenging role working closely with talented test engineers.
  • You will build your skills, knowledge and experience using a wide range of technology and tools gaining a thorough understanding of modern testing approaches and context-driven testing principles. We’ll also get you working with our own bespoke automation framework across web and native mobile, APIs and microservices.

Qualifications:

  • Curiosity and enthusiasm for solving problems and learning
  • Computer Science, Software Engineering or similar subject at degree level, or a genuine passion for technology
  • Experience within Java, JavaScript, or Python would be an advantage
  • Ideally previous experience with Testing technologies and practices
  • Eligible to work in the UK
  • Demonstrable programming experience
  • A high level of self-motivation and self-awareness
  • Strong communication skills and an appetite to collaborate cross functionally across our entire team
  • Curiosity and enthusiasm for solving problems and learning
  • An adaptable and flexible approach to your work is a must. We prioritise impact over everything and in an environment of uncertainty we require everyone to serve each other and work together across our stack to solve customer problems

Benefits:

  • An attractive salary and benefits package
  • The chance to solve new challenges all day, every day you will have the freedom to innovate and adapt new ideas
  • A great working environment and the opportunity to grow our product and business together we work in a fast paced and friendly environment
  • Excellent training throughout the initial 6 week training period and beyond

When applying and interviewing, we want to know:
