Lead Software Engineer in Test (SDET)
Job type: Full-time, Permanent
Location: Remote (with very occasional trips to London office)
Salary: Up to £85,000 with excellent benefits package

I am looking for a Lead Software Engineer in Test (SDET) to join an Architecture and Engineering team. You'll work on cross-cutting automated testing initiatives, and on product delivery, in a "guilds and gangs" setup. You'll be responsible for pushing forward the agenda of "shift left" quality control, and maximising the automated testing capability to reduce cycle time with no detriment to product quality.
You'll champion automated testing across all parts of the technology stack and all stages of the SDLC, and articulate the benefits to both technical and non-technical audiences.

Experience required for the role:
*Using web testing frameworks, for example Cypress or Selenium.
*You can describe the benefits of automating testing throughout the tech stack, and at multiple points in the path to production. For example automated API testing.
*You are familiar with distributed version control systems like Git, and can describe the branching strategies you have used on previous and current projects.
*You can give examples of what you consider to be good practices in automated testing, and how you have tried to implement those practices in previous roles.
*You are happy working in an Agile delivery environment, interacting directly with other team members and stakeholders on a daily basis.
*You can describe how we could move from the test ice-cream cone anti-pattern to the test pyramid.

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to put their own stamp on the automation journey of this company.
