People are at the heart of our business and creating a diverse and inclusive working environment is extremely important to us. 


About the role

We are looking for a skilled Senior Mobile QA Test Engineer to join our mobile apps development team.

Reporting to the team’s Scrum Master, the successful candidate will be passionate about quality and will go over and above ensuring consistently high standards are met across Immediate digital mobile platforms and look to drive high standards for all deliveries; cultivating an environment of quality and encouraging others to consider it at all stages.

You’ll be joining a new development team so being a team player, a great communicator, and an observant and transparent individual who can identify problems early, report and escalate where necessary is key to the role. We’ll be looking for a keen learner, who continually wants to improve, grow their own skills, their team’s skills, and adapt to new tools and processes. 

The role will be hybrid and we believe in a good work-life balance and offering a great working environment including:

• Fortnightly Development Day

• Skilled teams with strong collaboration and mentoring attitude

• Training and in-house workshops

• Social Events including Summer and Christmas parties

• Casual dress, friendly people within a relaxed atmosphere


What you’ll do

• Acting as an integrated member of the mobile apps development team, working closely to ensure the integrity and quality of changes to the products.

• Acting as a QA role model; understanding the grasp of quality in the development team and coaching them to higher levels.

• Taking responsibility for representing QA at all team ceremonies.

• Ensuring the execution of comprehensive functional, non-functional, user acceptance, and regression tests.

• Communicating bugs early and effectively, managing issues until they are resolved.

You will be considering and conducting exploratory testing to increase test coverage and maximize the discovery of bugs and defects. Also, you will work with other QA engineers to develop standards, best practices, and guidelines. Ensure these are understood and adhered to by our teams. Collaborate with other team members and the Product Manager to help plan new functionality or major enhancements and foster good working relationships with a diverse group of colleagues and stakeholders.

Skills and Experience

We will hire someone who has:

• Significant mobile app testing experience on both iOS and Android devices including responsive testing across a wide range of devices.

• Experience with the Behavior Driven Development Methodology.

• Experience in automated testing and willing to broaden your testing skill set through the latest automation tools and techniques.

• Experience writing and managing tests with at least one JavaScript test automation tool for apps, e.g. Appium-WebdriverIO, Detox, etc.

• Experience with Source Control Management (SCM) e.g. Git

You need to have experience with CI / CD pipelines and the importance of continuous testing and detailed knowledge of the software development life cycle. You need to demonstrate experience in accessibility testing and experience working in an agile environment. It is essential to have an observant and transparent individual; you can identify problems early, report and escalate where necessary, be able to articulate progress, both internally and externally, and have great communication, listening, and negotiating skills with colleagues and stakeholders.

We’re committed to building a diverse group of talent with a wide range of backgrounds, skills, and capabilities and will give full and fair consideration to all applicants. We know that flexibility is key to success and our people work flexibly in many different ways, so if this is important to you let us know.
