Software Development Test - Remote - £500-550 Inside IR35

We are currently working with a client that is in need of several SDETs. They are looking for a contractor to help define and implement the testing strategy across their products. Working in customer-focused agile squads, you'll collaborate with product managers, designers and engineers to determine the next iteration of mettle.

You'll work closely with software engineers from all specialisms to discover and build solutions that ensure reliable and scalable testing of their software. A primary focus is to deliver a high-quality, secure product to their customers, at pace.

You will bring knowledge of some of the following technologies, as these are used across the stack: backend (Java), web frontend (React Native, JavaScript/TypeScript), and mobile apps (iOS, Android, React Native). It's likely that you'll have a software engineering background, have an automation-first mindset, and have worked with and deployed continuously delivered, distributed systems (microservices)

Key Responsibilities:
● Working collaboratively across their missions to define and continually improve their testing strategy for new and existing products
● Develop clean, elegant, and reusable code that is easy to maintain and extend
● Build scalable automated testing systems that enable us to ship value to customers at a pace
● Support other engineers to test their software and act as a subject matter expert
● Work with stakeholders across the business to shape the future of quality engineering and put the long-term interests of their customers at the heart of critical decisions
● Drive the direction of our testing chapter to ensure it maintains the highest standards of technology and process

What we're looking for:
● Excellent programming skills in a modern programming language (we predominantly work with Java and JavaScript/TypeScript)
● Hands-on experience with common back-end and front-end test automation frameworks, and integrating these into the continuous deployment pipeline
● Knowledge of software performance and automated security testing techniques and tooling
● Awareness of cloud infrastructure and configuration
● A strong understanding of Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD)
