QA Test Engineer - make a material difference

Cambridge, England, United Kingdom · Software Development


We make great software that our users love. You’ll be working in a small team with developers and a product owner to test our flagship GRANTA MI software product, used by world leading companies. We are passionate about creating software to the best of our ability and work hard to understand our users’ needs, working with autonomy but collaboratively on all aspects of the project lifecycle.

What our testers do:

We are increasing our use of automation in testing, and make good use of that in performance, load and smoke testing. However, there’s still lots of manual testing for us to do, and we do so all the way from test design, setup and execution for new features, through exploratory testing to regression testing of our suite of products at regular intervals.

We work closely with product owners to define features and priorities, allowing us to get involved in understanding our customer needs and balancing them against development costs. We use Agile processes and have daily stand-ups and regular retrospectives to keep us honest and transparent. We take continuous improvement seriously and everyone’s opinion is valid and listened to. We use Jira to host a Kanban board, and show key metrics and our TeamCity build status on a team radiator.
