Job description

About the Company: 
Our client is a Kiwi hi-tech success story, they are a NZ owned and headquartered company, with a global footprint and global-scale customers, specialising in advanced electronic and digital solutions. This is an excellent chance to work with a small, high-capability team on genuinely interesting work at the convergence of digital with physical, and the opportunity for your work to have some durability rather than the “here today gone tomorrow” of software. 

About the Role:
You will be building and operating a test automation suite which enables the growth of the SaaS IoT ecosystem. This ecosystem uses a mix of mobile, cloud and web technologies to collect and cleanse IoT data from millions of globally dispersed IoT devices, turn it into useful business insights, and visualize these insights. You will be working with engineers from a wide range of disciplines and engaging with complex technologies and challenges – one of the characteristics of IoT is the sheer breadth of the technology stack. They are world leaders in the technology of mobile-driven ad-hoc Bluetooth networks and have one of the world’s largest industrial IoT deployments.

Key Requirements: 

  • You are an experienced automation tester with the capability to design, stand up, and operate an automated test environment and stack without a more senior person to back you up

  • You are happy to also get stuck in and conduct manual testing, either as a precursor to automation or to help other testers out when the going gets tough

  • You have a solid understanding of the issues involved in testing across a wide technology stack, including both API-driven and hardware-in-the-loop

  • Ideally you will have some sort of hardware or firmware experience in your background, rather than pure comp.sci, and if not, you’ll be someone who finds the idea of hardware impacting your tests challenging rather than problematic.

  • You have the capability and inclination to mentor more junior testers to help them acquire your level of skills, and more junior developers and BAs to help them create more test-friendly requirements and code
