Software Test Analyst

About the Position

Ipswich, Suffolk
£35,000 - £40,000 per annum

Job Role

This is an exciting Testing role where you can keep hands on with the day to day testing, whilst having the opportunity to shape how the testing  environment looks for the business moving forward.

You’ll be the main Tester in the business, and whilst there’s no direct management needed, we’re looking for someone who is able to take-the-lead during testing phases, help plan and manage the testing cycles and drive automation testing tools deeper into the business.

The company develop and test in agile sprints, and there is a target for a new release of their core software platform every three weeks, built up of a two-week development sprint followed by a one-week test phase.

Requirements & Experience

It’s predominantly a manual testing role, however there will be some automation too as you’ll be working on how to improve their current automation set up and using an automation testing tool they currently have in place, which is SmartBear. This tool isn’t set in stone, so there could be an opportunity  to suggest improvements based on your experience and knowledge.

This role would suit someone with 3-5 years’ experience, looking to take on more responsibility and an interest in testing and delivering software / technology. There is a clear development and progression pathway in this role too.

The company are great at supporting you while you settle in, so you don’t get overwhelmed. Training on systems and products will be given, as would a clear progression and development plan.
