  • Be the evangelist for Non-Functional Testing within the business - be a Non-Functional champion!
  • Have the opportunity to build your own Stress / Load framework. Have YOUR say.
  • Join a disruptive business featured through TechSpark, winner of a scale-up award and award-winning for their innovative solutions
  • Embark on a true growth trajectory, with a business who are disrupting their marketplace

Starting the business 4 years ago; looking back now they have expanded globally, have almost 300+ staff and are pushing boundaries with their sales of £6 million + a month. What they are really currently missing within the team, is a Non-functional specialist Tester who can come in, hit the ground running and build and implement from scratch a Stress / Load framework within the business. As well as this, the opportunity to consolidate your Automation Testing skills will be available - ideally, the role will be 50% Automation and 50% Non-functional but the Automation element to this role is a desirable.

Great, what will I be doing?

You will sit within a product team build / develop and introduce a Stress/Load testing framework and train and mentor other members of the QA team in the art of Non-functional testing. Your responsibilities will include testing the software, working with the developers and also leading. You will work with other members of the QA team to research and implement the correct level of tooling and process to ensure a high-quality Non-Functional testing framework. You will get the opportunity to build your own team in this area in future - and you will be a key member in helping drive all QA processes and principles throughout the business. You will have control over the day-to-day planning and running of the testing, working in an agile environment. You will review Non-Functional requirements, specifications, and technical design documents to provide meaningful feedback, perform through regression testing and develop and apply testing processes for both new and existing products. Currently, the business is creating automation scripts with PHP, Java, and Selenium. Although in the near future, the business is moving over to the JavaScript stack so they wish to move over to the testing tool Cypress which is one of the latest frameworks and a great skill to learn. Any experience of Automation testing and this will be a major bonus - if not, you will learn it and just master the Non-Functional testing in the meantime!


  • Non-functional tooling (to be defined by you)
  • Any experience with Stress/Load testing and frameworks i.e. JMeter
  • JIRA
  • Confluence
  • Selenium WebDriver knowledge
  • Clear communicator


  • Programming language of JavaScript or C#
  • Automation testing experience on internal systems and web applications
  • io
  • VS Code

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 as this role has the potential for you to build a team around you. 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.
