Job Description

Agile Tester – R&D

Our team and what we do:

Our products and services touch many aspects of everyday mobility including the future of Autonomous Connected Vehicles, Clean Air Zones, Speed and Bus Lane Enforcement, Congestion Charging, and Electric Vehicle Charging. If you drove or took public transport today, you almost certainly interacted with what we do every day to keep our roads safe and running freely.

The developers in our R&D team are responsible for the creation of innovative mobility solutions in the United Kingdom and Worldwide, working independently and as part of larger teams. The systems deployed typically utilise core sub-systems and products from the Traffic Solutions product portfolio with configuration and project specific developments.

The Agile Tester will be responsible for working as part of one of our SCRUM teams for a large customer development. Our teams are working on a complex traffic control system that will improve the lives of the travelling public worldwide. The teams are multi-disciplinary consisting of C++, Angular UI and Java developers as well as testers. You will be bringing your experience of sprint testing, automation testing and customer facing acceptance testing as we migrate from a legacy C++ system to a modern AWS hosted solution.

Is Siemens the place to enjoy your next success?

  • You will be confident in organising the software testing within your SCRUM team and driving for the best quality for our customers.
  • You will thrive within a multi-disciplinary team, working with team members to get the stories ‘done’ - debugging software products through the use of systematic tests.
  • You enjoy and are able to develop and implement automated testing (using existing frameworks), which will be used for regression purposes.
  • You will actively participate in project-wide reviews of stories and design documents, including input into the acceptance criteria.
  • You should be working with tools such as GitLab, Docker, Jira and Confluence.
  • You will have experience testing within a cloud environment (i.e. AWS).
  • You can demonstrate experience of successfully working within time, quality and budget constraints.
  • You are an effective communicator able to interact with all stakeholders, with strong oral and written communication skills.

In your role, what can you expect?

You will guide the team of multi-disciplined engineers in the art of agile software testing; responsible for performing and organising the software testing within the SCRUM team. To investigate software defects and debug software of major scale and complexity which are integral sprint components and to provide any such support to the team with regards testing and QA.

You will have a dedicated Scrum Master to assist with removing impediments, but you will take responsibility for the team’s ‘QA’ commitments and ensuring these are delivered. You will encourage a culture of continuous improvement and have a ‘can do attitude’.

Candidates should hold a BSc in a related STEM discipline or be able to demonstrate experience in a similar professional role. Candidates ideally hold ISQTB foundation in software testing accreditation, or similar certification.

Our projects are at the forefront of road network technologies, including V2X which further integrates on-street equipment, signage and information available to the driver in the car - all to improve safety and minimising journey times.
