Lindsey McCorry


0161 4166396

Job Role: SDET / Software Developer in Test
Location: Manchester
Day Rate:£400-500 per day
Duration: Initially 6 months - extends to 12

This role is for a pioneering consultancy specialising in the delivery of software solutions for a range of industry sectors, from blue-chip to public sector. They are growing their Manchester base as it is still quite small, so you will be one of the first in the region to represent the brand!

This role is a senior SDET position, with proven senior level experience of automation testing, development of test frameworks with Selenium Web Driver in either Java or C#.

What's the project?

You will be working on a large technical transformation project for a blue chip client in Manchester. This is an entire rebuild of company systems. You aren't there to just keep things ticking over, this is much more interesting!

Each team works to Agile methodologies (the version depending on project) and you will be seen as an advocate of best practice.

You will be working with the Software Engineers to ensure the best quality applications are being delivered. The SDET needs to be someone who can demonstrate their technical knowledge through their frameworks and their ability to relay any issues back to the developers and other stakeholders, both in the consultancy and client teams.

Experience required:

SDETs will require a strong engineering background in developing test automation frameworks, test environments, and quality processes.

You will need to be able to communicate clearly and concisely with both technical and non-technical counterparts.

Technical specifications can vary so you will need to have a wide ranging experience of carrying out non-functional testing, functional automation testing, and continuous improvement.

The technical skill sets we are looking for:

  • Non-functional testing experience (LOAD, Soak, Performance)
  • Automation testing - Selenium Web Driver or equivalent tools
  • Exposure to BDD practices and frameworks
  • 3rd party integration testing
  • Java or .Net coding experience

If you have significant experience in the above, either from a career in contracting, or a permanent role and you are looking to make the jump into contract, get in touch with Beth ASAP!
