Software Test Analyst (Mobile QA, Automation)

Interact is embarking on a mobile transformation – allowing our users to access workplace content anywhere and from any device.

This is an exciting opportunity to be one of the first members of a brand-new delivery team, working on innovative apps for the iOS and Android platforms.

Whether you’re near the beginning of your career with a passion to succeed, or someone with a bit more experience – we’re looking for someone with the mindset to make us bigger and better. You’ll be pragmatic and detail-orientated enough to carry out testing-to-day, but you’ll also understand that process, tooling, and scalability is ultimately the key to our success.

About the role

As an early member of our Mobile delivery team, you’ll be working with a small team of passionate developers and product leaders to create a best in class mobile solution for workplace collaboration. The role will initially involve time spent on creating and executing test cases and test suites, but in time will transition to maintaining tooling, frameworks, environments, and mentoring junior members of the team.

You’ll have at least two years’ experience in a testing role, and some solid examples of how you’ve helped your team to scale through the implementation of tools, frameworks, and good testing practice. Ideally, you’ll have some experience in a test automation framework such as Selenium, and experience of working with Test Case Management tools.

Our mobile development team is growing quickly and the successful candidate will play a key role in mentoring future newcomers to the team. There will also be opportunities to progress into formal leadership roles and beyond. You’ll be able to demonstrate that you are a great verbal communicator of complex technical concepts.

As part of your role you’ll also be responsible for maintaining and creating the environments we need to thoroughly validate the functionality of our software. Whether that’s hardware, software, or virtualised cloud environments (or a blend of all three).
