You will be the first dedicated software tester to join a team of 3 developers. You excel at automating testing, in particular UI testing, as this will be your main focus. As you are starting from scratch, you will be able to choose and use the latest tools and technologies. You will have the opportunity to shape the QA process. You will work as part of the development team to ensure comprehensive testing is performed for all new features, enhancements and fixes, as well as improving the existing tests and processes (currently formed of unit tests, integration tests and manual testing). You will be integral to maintaining software quality. You will also contribute towards automating our build processes (continuous integration, automated build...) and our release process. You will take part in client support to increase your domain knowledge and help you think as an end user. You need good attention to detail and good UX skills (design/usability).
Your responsibilities will include most of the following:
Automation of UI testing for our two web sites
Be good at identifying use cases, but even better at automating them
Creating repeatable tests
Web API testing
Security testing (best practices, penetration tests)
Test compliance of SOC controls
Identifying and recording bugs, verifying fixes.
Performance-based analysis, proactive measurement or monitoring to detect decrease over time
Suggest UX improvement
Provide support to clients
Technical writing, help pages
Liaise with developers to maintain test data

Windows with IIS
SQL (MS SQL for one product and MySQL/Aurora for the other)
Git source control
You have at least three years commercial experience as a test engineer. Prior financial services experience is not required and we welcome applicants from any industry. Salary is negotiable depending on experience.
You will work from home, with daily video calls with the rest of the team and occasional face-to-face meetings. You will liaise with developers and management on a daily basis, and with clients as required. Although the job is remote you MUST be based in the UK (applicants from elsewhere, please do not apply).
