A Software Test Engineer is required to join the QA team for a Times Tech 100, Global Live Entertainment Sound & Light Brand that produces shows for Major Broadcasting and Awards Shows across the world.

This leader in Live AV Entertainment runs a team of 20 in-house C++ / Python Developers behind the scenes, and you’ll join a team of 6 Software Test Engineer colleagues to improve the test automation infrastructure to their hardware and software solutions

Location: London, Central/City

Salary: £55k - £70k + pension, assorted benefits: £400 gig allowance for live events! Christmas closure in addition to holiday allowance, subsidised gym, season ticket loan and many more!

As a Software Test Engineer, you’ll join a diverse team that’s squad-based with a central software product around several hardware components. These make up the unit for Live Entertainment events. Tech stack is C++/Python with some C# (Python layers for Scripting and Automated Testing), Team City for CI and MSBuild.

As Software Test Engineer, you’ll be developing test harnesses / wrappers (predominantly in Python) for “human out of the loop” testing (UI driven test frameworks), developing and improving the automated testing infrastructure and maintaining existing build systems (tool updates and new tool integration).

You’ll own the build and release for their MSBuild-based process, maintain and improve their current Team City CI solutions and virtual machines within CI and build environments. Finally you’ll update and maintain test code/frameworks, and create detailed test cases, writing automated test code to effectively test systems.

The Software Test Engineer will have the chance to shape and progress the Test Automation here which is in its infancy, and do so in a really expansive, exciting and fun environment; as you would expect from somewhere where Live Entertainment is their business!
