We are looking for great testers, ideally with Agile and automation experience, to help us create our best-in-class scientific analysis software.
Working in an agile environment with developers, applications scientists and technical support, the testers are involved from an early stage in all project activities, from requirements analysis through to release planning. The testing itself focuses on both our flagship Windows applications and our new, pre-release web-based application. The role covers everything from functional and performance testing to usability tests, acceptance tests, automated tests and more.
What can we offer?
A positive work environment
The Newcastle office is home to a small, experienced development team. We care about making good software with a good user experience. We give our testers time and resources to learn new skills and techniques. We value team communication and collaboration. Our testers are fully integrated in the development team. We automate things when it makes sense to do so. We use agile development practices and try to learn from our mistakes.
Big-company benefits; small team attitude
Waters is a large company providing good employee benefits, including a company pension scheme and a health-care package. Despite being part of such a large company, the Newcastle office operates as a small team. We have a flexible approach to work and maintain a friendly, productive working environment.
An easy commute
Our core working hours are from 10am to 4pm, meaning you can avoid the rush hour. Overlooking the Newcastle quayside, we're also just a couple of minutes' walk from the nearest Metro station and 10 minutes' walk from Central Station, so you might be able to avoid the roads altogether.
