Overview

As part of our continued growth within our award-winning Assurance Practice, we’re looking for exceptional Automation Testers with strong Open Source or C# development skills (or both).  This role involves the delivery of test automation on a range of solutions that we will be delivering for our clients.  The successful candidates will be involved in the development of test automation frameworks, scripting of automated tests, maintenance, execution and enhancement of test scripts and frameworks, all integrated into a continuous build environment. In addition to the technical requirements, the role involves implementing best-practice testing, test automation and BDD practices.

Working as part of a wider BJSS delivery team, you will be responsible for coding automated test scripts; making a contribution to the planning, design and implementation of Test automation frameworks.

This is a client facing role that will require the successful candidate to have ideally worked in a consultancy or client facing environment before or certainly have a desire to do so.

BJSS prides itself on recruiting the upper quartile within each of our capability groups.   Our Assurance Practice is certainly no exception and we can boast of having some of the very best Test specialists in the UK, which is underpinned by that fact that we have recently won the European Software Testing Award for our work on the NHS Spine 2 Programme.

As a seasoned Technologist, you will have a strong desire and track record for delivering high quality and sometimes complex testing solutions.  You will have strong technical skills with C# or Java and excellent API Testing skills.  You will have implemented Automated Testing solutions and have experience of using automation tools, such as Selenium, Cucumber or Gherkin.

At BJSS we work in an Agile way and have a flexible Agile Framework – BJSS Enterprise Agile – to enable us to deliver software solutions at scale for any type of business.  Experience of working in an Agile environment before would be advantageous. As a Tester, you will have Agile skills and experience of creating test scenarios and acceptance tests against user stories.

You will have experience of NUnit Test development and an understanding of Object-Orientated (OO) design.  You will be expected to have skills using distributed source control (i.e. Git) and using JSON/XML objects.

Consultancy experience would be beneficial, but we will not close the door on you if you don’t.

We undertake a wide variety of work and although no two engagements are the same, a BJSS Technical Tester engagement will typically be involved in:

Functional & Non-Functional Testing Projects

Working within a team on the end-to-end delivery of Functional & Non-Functional testing assignments for our clients.  It is the Test Managers responsibility to ensure the assess performance, load, security as well as integration testing is delivered to a more than satisfactory level. You may need to support in the creation of Test plans, scripts and other supporting documents.

Projects may be delivered using our BJSS Enterprise Agile approach, or the client’s preferred method, and may be a pure BJSS team or an integrated BJSS/client team.

Consultancy

Clients turn to us for our Test Management capabilities therefore you’ll be required to provide services such as advice on Testing best practice, Software Development, Automation and Toolsets

Engagements may be delivered from our own offices or at one of our client office locations – an element of travel is part of the job.

In addition to project delivery responsibilities, all our people get involved in initiatives to support our continuous improvement objectives, including:

Participation in and development of the Infrastructure practice
Process improvement across the organisation
Bid and proposition development
Recruitment and interviewing
