Software QA Tester

So…why logistics and shipping?  Pretty much everything you touch and everything you eat has a supply chain involved. It’s either delivered by on one of our lorries or sailed on one of our ships. Without supply chains like ours, the world would stand still, therefore logistics and shipping are so important, and this is where you come in…...

The Software Tester performs an essential role in the department as they ensure that all Ferry & Terminal systems are fit for purpose and working to specified business requirements. You will work in a cross functional agile team, and in close collaboration with other teams and colleagues, utilising your professional skills to test all our in house developed systems that are deployed within a 24/7 operational business such as ours.

Be passionate about what they do and excited to always learn and push their abilities. You will be required to effectively manage workloads to strict deadlines and ensure that functionality of the systems is usable and free of critical and major defects, whilst helping in maintaining the overall quality of our code base.

Applying quality engineering principals throughout the Agile product lifecycle, you will be analysing requirements for validity, feasibility & testability. Executing all levels of testing (System, Integration, Regression and Performance), combined with designing & developing automated tests when and where needed. We’ll need you to detect and track software defects and inconsistencies, providing timely solutions to ensure resolution.

Ideally, we would like you to have some experience as a Software Tester or similar role or degree, with the ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, maintaining a very high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
