Lead Automation Tester (Selenium, API testing, PHP, Cypress) - CENTRAL BRISTOL - Salary DOE£

  • One to watch at the moment revolutionising their market using cutting-edge tech.
  • Award-winning for innovative solutions
  • Embarking on a true growth trajectory...

Technical minds think alike. This software company's vision was born by two highly intelligent technical people who identified a gap in their market and in 4 years have expanded globally, currently have 150 people onboard and are reaching sales of £1 million+ a month. They're about to embark on another exciting phase, refactoring some of their existing products into Node and building some brand-new exciting products!

Great, what will I be doing?

Within this business they have their very own open API and in-house development teams, organised into multiple product teams consisting of a QA, Product Owner and 3-4 developers of different levels. They have an engineering department of 50 people and outside the product teams sit DevOps teams, Data Scientists, AGILE enthusiasts and more. They are extremely well set up and identify that if there's something missing, they need to hire for it. You won't be a man doing 4 jobs in one here! To name some of the values of this team - quality over quantity, best practices and you helping shape those, TDD, AGILE, DevOps and SOLID are just a taster into the way that they do things.

Your responsibilities will include testing the software, working with the developers and also leading. You will get to have an impact on testing processes as they constantly evaluate things and look to make things better. This new test team of 9 has been established for around a year now and it is an exciting time to join them! You will have control over the day-to-day planning and running of the testing, working in an agile environment. You should be fluent with manual testing although this role is primarily automation. The opportunity to build a team is there, and you will get lots of creative freedom. You will ideally have experience creating automation scripts with PHP, if not Java and Selenium is ideal across web / ecommerce applications. In the near future, they might be moving to Cypress due to the team moving over to the JavaScript stack. This will be a massive + if you have this.


  • Non-functional testing experience i.e. stress testing etc.
  • Automation testing experience on internal systems and web applications
  • Selenium / Gherkin and Cucumber
  • Ideally PHP experience but Java / C#/ Python / JavaScript
  • Web API testing
  • Clear communicator
  • Available to be on site

What's in it for you?

Technology is at the heart of everything that this business does. They are hugely ambitious - with everything that they do, and technology and they are looking for like-minded individuals to join them on their journey! You will assist with shaping development, processes and you will have plenty of opportunities to learn and continue growing in your career. They offer a flexible environment where you won't be pigeon-holed for your talents.

Bristol is well known for its fun, creative and welcoming community, but it's also now the 3rd largest tech hub for investment in the UK, and is arguably THE place to be when it comes to tech outside of London. With the region now dubbed as 'Silicon Gorge', there are so many tech companies and startups in Bristol and the surrounding areas which has fostered a booming development scene with regular events, meetups and more.


Open to suggestions but currently look like:

  • Flexible working
  • Flexible working hours (9.30am - 4pm core)
  • Salary £DOE
  • Free city centre parking
  • Pension
  • Company shares
  • Free healthcare
  • 25 days hol+ bank hols,
  • Brand new city centre office - you won't find one better!
