Lead QA Engineer

gcd·Lurgan·Salary available on request


We design and build great software. We have great clients. We have a great team.

We want to add to this, a great Lead QA Engineer.

No rockstars, ninjas or gods needed here. If you’re experienced, hardworking and up for a challenge, you’ll fit right in.

As our first fully dedicated QA role, this is a great opportunity for you to ‘own’ the testing function of our business. We’re offering full autonomy to design and set the testing strategies, the freedom to choose the best techniques and tools, and the opportunity to grow this essential component of the team.

You will have a focus on ensuring that the products we deliver are secure, stable and error free. You will work collaboratively across all of our software development projects and across all our teams of Developers, Designers, Project Managers and Support Engineers.

There is genuinely so much potential here for growth and opportunity.

We would like you to have:

  • Experience in a QA Engineering role
  • Experience in designing and implementing both automated and manual testing for software and/or web based projects
  • Sound knowledge and understanding of software QA methodology, tools and processes
  • A working knowledge of browser based software and its server side and client side architecture
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • A keen eye for detail and quality
  • Eligibility to live and work in the UK (essential criteria)

It would be good if you have:

  • Previous leadership experience in a technical team delivering software products
  • Experience of working on agile projects with continued pipelines
  • Previously worked in a software house
  • Evidence of contribution to a personal or open source project

Ultimately though, we care as much about the person you are and the potential you show, as the list of skills you have. If you say ‘yes’ to all the above, great. Please do get in contact. If you say ‘no’ to some, but are smart, self-motivated and willing to push yourself, then we would also love to hear from you.

In return, we will offer you:

  • A great salary plus bonus
  • Generous annual leave (with Christmas week off)
  • Private medical cover
  • A company pension
  • Flexible working
  • Your choice of working equipment
  • Personal development and training plans
  • Childcare vouchers
  • A free and limitless supply of tea, really good pod coffee and fresh fruit
  • Ice cream every Friday
  • Regular social events – gaming nights, family BBQs, paintballing…
  • An annual weekend trip away
