You will be working as part of an agile team, responsible for helping them to define, design, build and test solutions which achieve an acceptable level of quality against functional and non-functional requirements
Automation is at the heart of what we do and we believe in automating at the point of development change. Automation starts early in the sprint and is embedded in what we do and how we test. You will be working in an environment where automation skills are highly valued and appreciated.
We use Odin Axe as the basis for our test automation, TFS for managing our tasks and MTM for running and reporting out test packs. All members of the team write and execute tests, but it is the QA engineer who leads on this activity. It is essential that you have a quality driven mind with proven test skills and you will need to have manual and automation experience. Testing tends to be a mixture of unit, exploratory, manual and automated testing.
To thrive in this role, we expect that you will have worked in a number of agile teams, be confident about speaking out with regards to quality. You will be reasonably technically minded, delivery focused and have a great eye for detail. You will lead and inspire the teams to drive quality in their solutions, with everyone thinking about the end goal, delivering a good quality product.
The Lead QA Engineer role at RDT is fundamental to helping with our QA approach within the company. The Lead QA Engineer will work within an agile scrum based delivery team as the ‘champion of quality’. As a Lead you will work with others in the QA team to drive the improvement of processes and tools; along with assisting the development and up-skilling of fellow team members. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is interested in moving Quality forward.
What’s in it for you?
You will work with a strong team delivering high Quality software products in a fast paced environment. You will be working with sharp and innovative people who are dedicated, driven and more than happy to share their knowledge with you. You will be expected to be the best you can be and will be encouraged and supported to achieve this.
