Software Verification / Test Engineer - Manual - Automated - 12m cont - Fife

I’ve been in recruitment for almost 2 decades and I’ve always really enjoyed working with clients who make stuff.

Not just any old stuff, but high tech gadgets that transform peoples lives across countries and continents.

I have to say I just really like working with technical people who can make this stuff work. That’s why I’m so excited about this vacancy. My client is looking for someone to test and verify their software used on one of their gadgets (it’s more technical than that but you get the gist).

Anyway, here’s some information so you can decide if it’s right for you:

What you’ll be doing:

* Specifying and developing test cases for functional and non-functional product features
* Review and analysis of system designs for product features against system docs
* Identify defects in delivered software against the documented technical requirements
* Development and execution of manual and automated test scripts against guidelines
* Review and amendment of existing scripts in line with product changes
* Development of automated test scripts

The skills you’ll bring:

* A minimum of 3 years commercial experience in a similar test / verification role
* Carry out manual and automated testing using Python and Gherkin -/or BDD
* Experience of data reporting using SQL
* Experience of installing Windows and Linux operating systems
* Liaise with the development teams with for bug fixing and reviews

This is a highly technical role particularly suited to someone with a mix of testing both applications and embedded systems within a product development environment. This will be a long term contract across multiple departments in the business so a flexible approach to work and the ability to adapt quickly to new environments is essential.

Only apply to this vacancy if you consent to us contacting you with regards to this and similar future career opportunities. You may call to discuss the role in more detail if you wish.
