QA Test Analyst

About the Position

Colchester, Essex
£28,000 - £32,000 per annum

Job Role

You’ll be reporting directly to the QA Test Manager, working alongside the technical team of developers and existing QA’s and you will be responsible for the quality and testing of the business critical, bespoke software applications the company uses on a day-to-day basis.

You’ll be executing writing and executing manual test cases to make sure the software meets the agreed standards as well as supporting any ongoing new features, enhancements and development. In addition, you will be involved in the logging of any defects found within the software, retesting the corrections and configuring any changes to the systems where required.

Requirements & Experience

This is a manual testing role, however there is an Automation Tester within the team and so further down the line there may be an opportunity for you to get involved in this as well.

This role would suit someone who has a good understanding of general testing, has a minimum of 6 months experience testing software applications and is looking to improve and develop their testing skills and knowledge. Ideally you will have a keen interest in technology and some form of testing qualification such as ISTQB, although this isn’t essential.
