The Candidate Ltd

The Candidate have been tasked with recruiting a talented Test Lead into one of Manchester’s most up & coming software organisations. With a major phase of their product roadmap beginning, our client is actively recruiting into their technical team (currently sat at over 160 people) as they make significant strives towards the development of a greenfield platform which will revolutionise the online gambling industry. This role is perfect for a Senior Test Engineer who is looking to make the move into a leadership role, or a Test Lead who is looking for a more autonomous challenge.

Joining the team as the Test Lead, the successful candidate will have the flexibility and autonomy to truly make an impact on your team. Remaining entirely hands on across their testing requirements (either autonomation or manual depending on your experience and preferences), you’ll also delegate responsibilities throughout your team of testing professionals. The existing teams are generally separated into teams between 5-8 people, with a direct report into the Test Manager.

At the moment, the team are working fully remote but plan to return to a split working environment with 2 days in the office & 3 days remote.

Key Responsibilities of the Test Lead:

  • Support the team to ensuring efficiency in meeting team targets
  • Formulating and executing test cases whilst overseeing project workload & delegating tasks to your team members
  • Producing test documentation (test strategy, test plans, scripts & release reports)
  • Reviewing defects & defect triage with testers, development teams and product owners

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Technically knowledgeable and commercially experienced across either manual or automation (selenium) testing, with requirements for candidates across the technical stack to join the business on a leadership level.
  • Experience API testing in a Microsoft environment (wider stacks considered but a bonus if you have testing in a .net environment).
  • ISTQB foundation certificate (intermediate would be an advantage)
  • Naturally passionate about team leadership, with the capabilities to build strong relationships with internal stakeholders and a positive approach to technical issues.
