Senior Software QA Engineer


Manchester, Manchester. United Kingdom

About us
At ResponseTap Engineering, we get super excited by powerful new tech. We love to experiment and innovate with it to develop our market-leading Call Intelligence platform.

We also love change! We are relentlessly working to improve our methodologies, technologies and working practices. We're always on the lookout for new ideas to make sure we are constantly evolving and going from strength to strength.

We are a SaaS business, and use AWS as our cloud service provider. All new development is done here using serverless tech as a first choice. As we add new features to our platform, we take the opportunity to reimagine parts of it using the latest tech.

What will I be doing?

You will perform exploratory testing on new features as part of the development process. You will also contribute a critical eye to product feature designs and technical scoping to drive out assumptions and risks before the feature even leaves the drawing board. You will develop automated tests to ensure that the quality of our products remains high and any issues are caught early.
Develop, document and communicate the test strategy, and advise colleagues (Product Owners, Developers, QA Engineers) on Testing techniques and approaches to help increase awareness and skills related to producing high-quality software.
