Test Lead/ Test Manager/ QA Manager
I have a brilliant position in for a Test Lead/Manager to join my client based in the centre of Bath. It’s a great role for a cash rich company who have ambitious plans over the next few years.
They are going through an exciting time having recently been invested in. They have a Test team of 3 and are now looking for a Test Manager to join them and take control of all things test. You will be in charge of the Test Strategy for the company, shaping testing and introducing new tools and processes and making strategic decisions on the approach and technologies being used. Their testing is still in its infancy and they need that senior figure within the team to guide them, someone who has been there done that who has seen what works and what doesn’t and can use their skills to drive their testing forward.
There will still be an element of hands on testing initially. They see it initially as a 60/40 Management/strategic to hands on split which may evolve to more management over time and as the team grows. You’ll still be conducting some of the test activities and be responsible for test planning, the quality of test analysis and test design, monitoring and reporting test execution progress, and evaluating and reporting test execution results.
They work in an Agile environment to 2 week sprints and also have some automation in place with Selenium. Whilst you don’t need hands on automation experience part of the position will also involve looking at their automation strategy so exposure to this would be useful.
They are looking for someone who has worked as a lead/ manager for a company before who has taken a responsibility for the test strategy. They would idelly love people who have done it for smaller companies rather than big large corporates as they feel that experience would be better suited to their environment.
Salary is up to £63,000 depending on experience.
