We’re looking for a talented Test Engineer to join a small but hugely successful Bristol based company who are the No.1 App in their market across over 80 countries. You’ll be working on a highly rewarding, ethical and innovative app and website which has so far helped over 6 million children to learn whilst having fun. You’ll be able to choose what automated tools to work with and play a key role in the growth of this incredible success story.

What experience you'll need

As the company’s first Test Engineer you’ll need to have a good mix of manual and automated website and mobile testing experience. They’ll need you to have an excellent knowledge of IOS from a user perspective and in-depth automated testing for web (e.g Selenium or other). They’re going to be working in an Agile environment so if you’ve had experience of this that will be a massive advantage. Desirable (not essential) skills include; UI testing on iOS (maybe Calabash or XCTest –you’ll decide!) and an understanding of accessibility.

What you'll be doing

As Test Engineer you will work alongside a small team of developers to translate user stories into automated and manual tests. You’ll create and maintain an automated testing suite for iOS and Web versions of the product and you’ll be given the autonomy to be able to research, evaluate and select the best tools and processes. Working within a sprint team, you’ll be a vital cog in the business with an insatiable hunger to find, report and correct bugs. Overall you’ll be contributing to a massive successful and fast-growing business as it continues to expand and develop, your ideas and opinions will be highly valued from the start.

What you'll get in return for your talents

There’s a competitive salary (to £45K), generous holidays, flexible working (up to 3 days per week at home) and a nice friendly office to work in when you do need to be in. There’s a company trip to the US in February and the opportunity to work closely with Google amongst others. You’ll also get your choice of kit/set-up and be able to select and evaluate your test tools, above all you’ll be able to be part of a fun, challenging ride all the way!
