We have an excellent opportunity for a talented Automation Lead / Lead Tester (Automated Test Analyst / Selenium) to join a high profile, tech-driven Online Retailer in the Manchester area, and lead the organisations Automation testing efforts within their dynamic, Agile Software Development team. This is the perfect role for a Senior Automation Tester (Test Lead) who has previously worked within an Agile environment (including TDD and BDD) to join a large fast-paced, talented Development team (C# & Ruby) and take ownership of their Automation testing operations. The Test Lead will be a confident and tech-hungry individual who thrives off of working collaboratively with Development teams and utilising their knowledge to further develop the Automated Test framework, focussing on Selenium along with appropriate frameworks (Cucumber, Specflow, Capybara etc). Although there is no direct management responsibility, the successful Lead Tester / Automation Lead will demonstrate experience of mentoring or leading a small team, with a natural flair for training the existing manual testers on Automation techniques and processes, allowing them to contribute to the development and maintenance of automated tests. Working closely with both developers and fellow testers, the successful Tester will take immense pride on delivering great software in an Agile way, influencing quality at all stages of the project. Ideally, you'll demonstrate experience of configuring tests to run as part of continuous improvement / integration (Jenkins) and writing BDD style integration tests within Cucumber and Specflow, although this is something that can be taught. From a career opportunity perspective, this opportunity is genuinely amazing and offers the successful Automation Lead / Senior Automated Tester unrivalled growth opportunity, with them placing developing the Automation function at the forefront of their plans. The environment is second-to-none, offering a dress-down, non-corporate atmosphere designed to retain, and get the best out of their highly talented tech team. This job was originally posted as
