QA Engineer

Job Description

We're recruiting a QA for the leading provider of SaaS solutions for digital partner marketing. Customers include some of the largest and most trusted brands on the planet. Headquartered in Newcastle Upon Tyne with offices in London, San Francisco, New York, Baltimore, Sydney, and Tokyo.

The Technology
At the heart of the SaaS platform they track performance marketing data and build a number of solutions to turn this data into useful information for customers. They work with a LOT of data, generating over a billion events across their infrastructure daily. They aim to make as much of this data available in real-time as possible, which is no mean feat at this scale! The platform is API-led and there is no trickery done behind the scenes - customers have access to all of their data all of the time.

They run their automated frameworks in Ruby, using Selenium webdriver for the UI tests. They primarily work on Macbooks with a RedHat virtual machine test environment.
You can expect to be supported in your passion for Testing with the opportunities and time to branch out into specialisms such as Load, Performance and Security testing. Your opinions and input are always valued. Their development teams are multidisciplinary with engineers, QA, and analysts working together using Agile principles. Each team is independently organised, deciding their own workflow for solving the problems presented to them. They use tribes to share knowledge and ideas across the teams, and to make team-spanning decisions such as coding standards.

The QA they're looking for:
• Their culture and work environment are very important to them. Above all else they value people with a positive attitude and a good work ethic.
• They love self-motivation and a passion for knowledge, as well as those who put their team above themselves.
• This is a senior role so demonstrable experience of good software engineering is essential.
• They are looking for a passionate Tester from a technical background who has experience in, or is willing to learn, manual and automated API/Front-end testing as part of an Agile Scrum team.
• They encourage a mindset of quality and doing the right thing; ego has no place there.
• Collaboration is the foundation of their culture. The ability to communicate in a concise and focused way, really listen to others, and practice patience are all excellent traits to have.
• They want to help their people develop themselves professionally and personally. The desire to mentor and support those that are working towards obtaining all the above qualities helps us achieve that.

What they’re offering
• They strive to create a fun, friendly, and comfortable working environment.
• They believe a good work-life balance is essential.
• They're in this business for the long haul. They give their team time to think and to do things right.
• Their team is a democracy. Everybody has a voice in how things are done.
• They want their team to be the best they can be. Each person works with their manager to create and implement a personal development plan. They also offer some benefits such as a £500 personal development budget and access to Learnerbly.com
