Software Engineer in Test (SDET)
Role type: Full-time, Permanent
Location: Remote with very occasional trip to London office
Salary: Up to £55,000 + excellent benefits

I'm looking for a Software Engineer in Test (SDET) within 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 helping to for push the agenda of "shift left" quality control, and maximising our automated testing capability to reduce cycle time with no detriment to product quality. You'll deliver automated testing across all parts of the technology stack and all stages of the SDLC.

Experience required for the role:

*You combine the mindset of a tester with both the desire and ability to put those tests into code for full automation, while being happy to perform a degree of manual, particularly exploratory, testing.
*You have experience in using web testing frameworks, for example Cypress.
*You have experience, and 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.
