The Candidate Ltd

Senior QA Engineer - UK Remote Working - £45,000 - Digital Agency

Our client are an exciting digital agency who design, build and optimise attractive Shopify eCommerce sites for rapidly growing brands. From the get go you will assist in the quality assurance of projects in conjunction with the project team contributing to the continued success for the business!

About the role

As the QA Engineer you will take huge pride in what you do and have an outstanding eye for detail which in turn will help to deliver the highest spec solutions to clients. You will work collaboratively with the wider project team made up of designers, developers, project managers, client services and IT support all with the end point being to build world class eCommerce sites built on Shopify Plus. You will be the point of contact for QA process and strategy across the company so this is very much an autonomous role. The role will mainly sit in the testing of new website builds to ensure they’re ready to ‘go-live’ for customers whilst also defining the test needs for each project.

At the moment, there is no other QAs within the team, and this will be their first hire for our client. Previous quality assurance has been undertaken by the wider team however due to the influx of new work, now is the time to build the team out. The current plan is to hire a senior and then immediately a junior followed by two more later in the year. Ultimately (if all goes to plan) the successful candidate will manage a team of 3 people by the start of 2023. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to build out a team and be the focal point of QA at a growing business.

This role is permanent, full time and remote (meaning you’ll never have to commute again). Our client do have an office in Bath however its optional if you ever wanted to go there with the team usually organising get togethers on Fridays to keep in touch. If that’s not your thing, they hold virtual coffee mornings as well!

  • Able to perform regression testing well
  • Have great communication skills with business stakeholders
