Software Test Engineer

Cambridge Intelligence 

Cambridge, Anglia. United Kingdom

Who is Cambridge Intelligence?

We’re a team of data visualization experts. We help organizations to make an intelligent visual analysis of their data to ‘join the dots’ within it and uncover hidden threats.

Using our data visualization tools, it's quick and easy to build powerful data visualization applications, roll them into analysts' tools and workflows, and deploy them anywhere in the world.

What’s the role about?

You’ll engage with the entire development team to make improvements and build quality into the product. Over time, you'll need develop some ability in JavaScript, so that you can test API behaviour, either through test harnesses, demos, simple scripts or working within the console.

You’ll typically begin with exploratory testing, then move on to a more structured approach, designing test frameworks, writing test plans and implementing bug triage.

Who’s the ideal candidate?

We’re looking for someone who’s confident working with little guidance, and excited by the prospect of designing their own processes. A background that includes API testing would be a natural fit, but any experience of testing development tools is a great advantage.

You might come from a testing background, or you could be a developer, looking to make the move into testing.
