Test Engineers have to wear many hats. They have to think like an end-user, understand a project like a coder and analyse the outcome like a forensic scientist. If you can wear these hats with style, then Lab Digital may be the right place to show what you can do.

About you

A natural-born Test Engineer is a gate-keeper between the digital product and the client. No detail is beyond scrutiny, no flaw is allowed to pass. Advanced Test Engineers understands how to achieve the highest quality end product through the right mix of manual and automated testing; that means experience in deploying tools like Postman or Selenium or similar tools. It also means you need a basic knowledge of programming so that you can understand the project not just on the outside but from the inside, too.

Testing is about looking for problems but thinking in terms of solutions and the best Test Engineers incorporate that thinking into their working practice. They work across all browsers and OS’s and advise the team on sprint planning through test automation.

For bespoke, end-to-end digital products such as those that Lab Digital creates, we need a Test Engineer with independence and a sense of responsibility to ensure that quality is monitored and maintained from start to finish.
