"Tech is moving so fast, you either get on board or get left behind" The Lead Developer of a consultancy we're working with couldn't miss the opportunity to work on this new set of projects and would like to build their new product team around this thought. The consultancy work using GIS systems and machine learning to analyse data like rainfall and traffic flow to predict the most efficient ways to build fast growing cities and towns. They're looking for a Test Lead to work alongside the Senior Test Engineer, who's building the test frameworks. Your role would be to lead on a project by project basis taking on writing the test scripts and plans. They're looking for experience in the following:

  • Using Python (all forms - Django applications 2.0 & 3.6). Utilising Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Development (CD) whilst building infrastructure.
  • Selenium
  • Cucumber/ Gherkin (BDD)
  • Someone autonomous who can take the reins and be meticulous but not inflexible. You'd be eventually leading a team of 5.
  • A good communicator who's happy to collaborate

They're working on an array of different projects including Big Data, AI and machine learning. The Test Lead will take the reins and lead the team of testers and take hold of existing projects. They're looking for someone with an interest to pick up the performance and load testing.

Why should you apply? You'd like to get involved with some great tech projects with a team you can actively contribute to the culture. They're building the culture as we speak and want to build the team around their AGILE methodology so everyone gets what they want from it. The Product and Services Lead helped build Skype to what Microsoft bought it for, so this is a team you want to be part of. Creativity and diversity is a huge thing for them, so if you'd like to offer your skill set and experience, contact Beth at
