QA Test Enginner - Cardiff / Remote £55,000

  • Cardiff


I have an exciting opportunity for a tester to join my client based in Cardiff. They are an exciting financial services very financially secure startup who have recently launched their product . They are made up a team of brilliant people who have been there and done this before and are now building a company even bigger and better. They would love someone happy to come into the office once or twice a month, or more if you are local.

They are already a team of 50 so far with two dev teams of around 5/6 developers each and have been building their product over the past year ready to launch in the next few months. They are in the processes of building a brand new QA team to ensure the quality of the products they are building. . They have been building a awesome team of people and recently hired their very first QA to start getting processes in place around testing, have just hired 2 more and are now looking for a fourth to join them. They take quality very seriously and plan to have a QAs embedded as part of both their agile teams.

Their product utilizes a SaaS (Software as a Service) system to manage all the processes involved with their customers. QA and Testing is still at very early stages and there is the opportunity to contribute to discussions and help shape the strategy and tools used. At the moment they are using Postman for API testing (but this may change) and are considering different tools for UI testing, so solid knowledge around API testing or UI automation would be useful (although automation isn't essential).

They are big on the shift left approach and you'll work closely with their Product Owners right from the requirements stage, challenging assumptions, asking questions, and writing test cases. The technology stack is focused on Salesforce, with MuleSoft for API management and due to the system being Salesforce based it relies more on configuration than on heavy coding, presenting a challenge for Testers as configurations can change faster than tests can be updated. As a result developing robust regression packs is crucial.

In an ideal world they are looking for a mid/senior level QA/ Tester who would have worked with Saas or Salesforce systems before as they can be a little bit different to test compared to usual software products so it would certainly make life easier, but, they wouldn't also rule out local people who are keen to learn this. Any UI automation experience would be beneficial but isn't absolutely essential.

Salary is anywhere between £45,000 and £55,000 dependent on experience plus 25 days holiday and bank holiday, matched pension of up to 8%, Life Assurance 4 x salary and Private Medical
