A market leading tech organisation based in Aberdeen is looking for a skilled Software Tester to join their growing team - genuinely interesting project work and modern tech on offer!

They've been going over 5 years now and have signed up an impressive list of clients, they develop safety critical software used throughout the UK on a daily basis and they're really making a name for themselves.
Their current team is circa 10 strong and have big expansion plans in mind for the next few years, now is an exciting time to join and get ahead.

What will you be doing?

As the Software Tester you will be collaborating with the Engineers and Software Developers, helping to ensure efficiency throughout the projects. Performing end-to-end test cases and overall implementing higher quality throughout the software development lifecycle for all teams.

As you get to grips with the systems, this role will start out manual-focussed, working closely with the Test Manager to further develop the test function through integration and system testing for a variety of new projects.

The company are looking to automate as much as possible so you will be driving the automation forward for the team, setting up the automated test suites.

Due to the nature of their work, they have strict guidelines and strongly adhere to best practices on design, documentation, and testing. Engineers that embody these practices would fit in really well.

You'll ideally have experience with most of the following:

* Manual Testing (Integration & System Testing)
* Automated Testing (C#, .Net would be preferrable but not essential)
* ISTQB qualification is desirable but not essential

Location and benefits:

Their offices are based just outside of central Aberdeen, but really accessible by car or public transport. Because of the nature of the projects, the ideal fit would live in a commutable distance that's happy to work onsite five days per week.
In return, they're able to offer a salary of circa £45k depending on experience + great benefits.

Our clients


I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester
