Junior Tester - 15Gifts Ltd

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 15/10/2018

Limitless choice isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

After a point, adding more options gets overwhelming. It stops us choosing at all. Or leaves us regretting the choices we make. Here at 15gifts, we’re obsessed with the psychology of choice. Studying the key elements that drive people to make confident choices on the high street, and bringing those qualities into the digital world through intelligent decision engine technology.

Today we power thousands of confident consumer choices every day across some of the largest brands in the UK, Europe and the US, including AT&T, Sky, O2, Virgin Media, Deutsche Telekom, EE and The Times. With every engine interaction, we’re learning more about customers, gathering insights and powering more and more accurate recommendations.

We're a small team with a great culture and we're excited about the opportunity ahead of us.

Job Description:

We are looking for a Junior Tester to provide QA and contribute to our testing processes. You will need a hands-on approach working closely with our design, development, data science and partner experience teams to help define, plan and execute test cases across multiple projects and product versions.

Your role will include cross-browser/device testing, the specification of acceptance criteria and test cases during project planning, and ownership of tickets throughout the sprint process. Ideally, you will have experience of automated testing which you can use to help develop our testing framework and use to implement testing of our systems.

 
Skills Range:
  • Pin-point attention to detail
  • Ability to find problems and root causes. You want to break stuff and help fix it
  • A hunger to ask questions - for your own knowledge, and to challenge assumptions
  • Experience of a range of web browsers, operating systems and devices
  • Understanding of web-based technologies and testing web applications
  • A desire to constantly improve your knowledge and experience
  • Confidence to provide constructive criticism and positive feedback

Responsibilities:

  • Plan, execute and perform testing across both product development and BAU work streams
  • Provide early input on upcoming tasks from the relevant expert and end-user perspective
  • Assist the development team in the identification of test cases
  • Design and prioritise tests to create the best coverage and business value
  • Track and monitor live system performance to provide early warning of potential issues

Bonus Points For:

  • ISTQB or equivalent
  • Proficiency in writing test scripts using Selenium or other automation
  • Experience of working with Agile project management methods such as Scrum
  • Basic understanding of distributed source control systems, specifically Git
 
Person Specification:

Fundamentally we want someone who is smart and can get stuff done, it may sound clichéd but we would much prefer to hire someone who is talented and allow them to train and gain experience, than to hire someone with all the points checked off but who has the wrong attitude.

If you are willing (and more importantly, wanting) to learn and get on with being a part of a growing team, and are excited about helping us to maintain and improve the quality of the excellent work we do then we want to hear from you.
