Quality Analyst

Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, UK

Sorry, this position is now filled

Are you a fastidious software tester with a penchant for detail? Do you get a kick out of wringing every last bug out of a groundbreaking product? Are you a dab-hand at automating mobile, web or API testing?

We’ve just completed a significant round of investment and are growing fast, accelerating an ambitious technical roadmap that will ready our product for global domination and we’re looking for meticulous, detail-oriented software testers to make sure it stays rock solid with an ever-evolving automated test suite.

We’ll be honest – this role is not for spare-time tinkerers. It’s a veritable sleeves-up, hands-on, automation test-fest, working with a high-calibre team of talented engineers, designers and commercial visionaries to create groundbreaking products the world has never seen before.

It’ll flex all of your software-breaking muscles, from good old fashioned manual testing to fully-automated regression packs for web applications, mobile apps, APIs and micro-services. Working as part of a broader Agile team, you’ll be fully responsible for your own contribution, delivering against commercial imperatives in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Day-to-day, you’ll be:

  • Reviewing requirements, specifications and technical design documents to provide timely and meaningful feedback

  • Assisting in the creation of test strategies and plans to achieve maximum coverage

  • Designing, developing and executing automation scripts

  • Writing and performing test-plans and test-cases

  • Identifying, recording and tracking bugs

  • Mentoring junior team members

  • Investigating problems found in software as a result of testing

  • Working with QA team and software developers to find solutions


To be considered for this role, you’ll need to have:

  • Excellent problem solving skills

  • Working knowledge of test frameworks/suites

  • Strong experience using Selenium, Webdriver or other tools

  • Experience in at least one programming language suitable for web/hybrid mobile automation

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

  • Experience writing test plans and test cases

  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum development process


To really knock our socks off, you might also have: (though definitely not required)

  • ISTQB certification

  • Experience and understanding of testing RESTful APIs (including authentication and authorisation, API responses and API response codes)
  • Experience working with Web Data format Notations (JSON, XML or equivalent)
  • Experience with continuous integration, continuous deployment tools
  • Exposure to Database systems (DB queries, Updates etc.)
  • Exposure to Cloud technologies
