My client is a niche international business which employs tens of thousands of staff in over 100 countries. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Test Manager to join the business to help build an e-commerce testing team to develop a new e-commerce/online platform. This is a completely new role so you will be instrumental in building the team and you will ideally have experience of delivering large digital or online programmes.
Reporting to the E-commerce Program Manager, you will manage and deliver a portfolio/pipeline of online and digital projects, using a variety of testing methods including functional and non-functional testing. You will use automated testing technologies and will be responsible creating a test strategy including test design and framework. As this is a new team, you will also build the testing team, recruiting in your own team members. Despite being a management opportunity, it is required that you are hands on as you will be involved with the testing, especially as you start to build a team. You will map out the current testing environment and create a test infrastructure that supports robust communication whilst providing a cost effective testing framework.
You will already have a minimum of five years’ experience as a Test Manager, Lead Tester or Program Test Manager in software development and particularly web testing. You will have a strong understanding of testing and automation technologies, both from a business and a technical perspective. You will also have experience of working with 3rd party vendors, using an offshore model. You will define the scope of testing for each release/delivery. You will deploy and manage the appropriate test frameworks, meeting each test mandate. You will be used to working in an Agile environment using Agile development and methodology. It is preferred that you have experience of testing mobile applications also however, this is not essential. Finally you will be experienced in automated testing; using tools such Selenium, Cucumber or QTP. Please note, this is a core Java application.
The role is based in Maidenhead and is easily commutable from surrounding areas including, Slough, Bracknell, Windsor, Henley-on-Thames and West Drayton.
You will already be working as Test Manager, Lead Tester or Programme Test Manager.
