The Role

To continue our success story we are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) to be a part of our rapidly growing organisation. In this role you will help to champion a "shift-left" culture and build up our testing capability by introducing appropriate testing frameworks and tools in our build and deployment pipelines. We are fairly young in our CI/CD journey so you will play a critical role in helping us reach our goal of "continuous deployment, anytime, every time". You know what excellent quality looks like, and lead the way by guiding your squad members on best test practices.

As part of a cross-functional, agile squad practicing Scrum, you will play your part in identifying quality gaps to solutions proposed and act as the "voice of quality" to the team. You have a can-do spirit and are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to help the team to achieve common quality goals like reducing the number of manual tests that need to be run on each sprint. "Not my job" is definitely not part of who you are!  Your call to action will be "Automate! Automate! Automate!" as you actively seek to make testing more efficient and scalable for the entire team.

You will not be a lone voice in our quality journey as you will be working with kindred spirits throughout the engineering teams. As part of the larger "Testing" tribe you will work together with other members of your tribe family to evangelise and embed kaizen culture of constant and never ending quality improvement throughout the product engineering organisation. Having excellent verbal and written communication skills will definitely be essential in this role.
