Automation Tester, Open to flexible working
12-month fixed-term contract
Ofgem works on behalf of energy consumers to ensure that every household and business in the UK can rely on a safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable energy supply.
E-Serve is our delivery arm, and manages a number of high profile environmental programmes that support our commitment to creating a net zero energy supply. Our flexible working career opportunities are incredibly varied, so we are committed to recruiting talented people from a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds – bringing different perspectives and experiences to our work.
Operating in an Agile environment, you’ll collaborate with project managers, technical leads and subject matter experts - working on a number of websites that Ofgem develops that are subsequently used by energy suppliers. You’ll plan and undertake manual tests and write automated tests, using BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) methodologies. As well as acting as the team’s subject matter expert in testing tools or environments, you’ll look for opportunities to enhance how the wider team operates, and identifying opportunities to make better use of automation. It’s an opportunity to work with a range of different technologies in an environment where you are encouraged to be creative (while following agreed working/coding standards) and where you’ll have plenty of scope to develop your professional knowledge and skills.
We expect that you’ll bring a thorough understanding of Agile development and quality assurance methodologies, alongside previous experience in using SQL within databases. You’ll have a good knowledge of functional testing that addresses a number of the following areas: integration, smoke, user acceptance, interface, usability, system, API and regression. You’ll also need to have good knowledge of writing automation tests, utilising Specflow, and Selenium in .NET. It’s a role that will allow you to work with a range of different technologies in an environment where you are encouraged to be creative and where you’ll have plenty of scope to develop your professional knowledge and skills.
