Application Tester

Application Tester (Microsoft platforms)


Bath, South West

This is an opportunity for a full-time tester to join a growing development team at London & Country Mortgages, an award-winning mortgage broker in the centre of Bath, serving over 500 users across three sites nationwide.

We are seeking an experienced tester with strong desktop automation testing skills, test plan management, and coverage of a range of products and technologies.

Candidates should be able to work closely with the product owner and the developers as part of the Agile team, and also have the confidence to be fully responsible for setting up the testing function within the team, using the most appropriate software.

Successful candidates must be able to demonstrate:

  • A minimum of five years commercial testing experience.
  • Essential skills include:
    • Automated Windows application testing
    • Experience of testing .Net and Visual Basic 6.0 applications
    • Creation and management of test plans and scripts
    • ASP.NET
    • Experience of TestComplete and/or Ranorex Studio
  • Additional desirable skills should include:
    • Agile/SCRUM
    • Web application testing skills
    • An understanding of relational databases

The role will require candidates to quickly establish a new testing function in a busy development environment. They will be required to make strategic decisions on the approach and technologies being used and ensure that this remains robust and fit for purpose. They will be able to develop not only their technical skills, but also their career in an exciting and often challenging environment.

Knowledge and experience of financial services, in particular mortgages, would be useful but not essential. Furthermore, whilst we recognize and value academic and technical qualifications, we are more interested in your relevant technical expertise in the above areas.

The role also offers 25 days annual leave.

Please note that the post will sometimes require having to work outside of normal office hours.
