About the role

The Senior Software Developer in Test (SDET) lives within a squad/tribe of product development, with a line reporting to an Engineering Manager and guidance and technical direction from Product Quality Manager. They work directly with Software Development Engineers and Quality Analysts to understand the features, technical design and this insight allows the SDET to implement automated tests and testing tools to deliver quality delivery with high efficiency.

About the company

Our company was founded just over a year ago, we are an engineering focused company who move fast and bring things to market quickly.

We’re a small company, only three founders in our team today.

We are small, but have big ambitions.  We are NOT about having a factory-farm of developers, but building a small team of highly skilled engineers who can take and understand complex problems and can solve them, while also asking and challenging when better solutions are available.

We are a flat organisation (well, there's only three of us), but more importantly we value good engineering talent and give them the tools and the support they need.

What we do

We make things. We make things for ourselves, and we make things for others. We do it really well, and we’re really good at helping others do it well too.

We work with startups to get ready for scale. We help scaleups get bigger the right way. We help big businesses transform ideas into products and get them all working in ways they never thought possible.
