I'm currently helping my client to find an experienced Test Automation Engineer to join their team.


The company is a small tech consultancy, who's specialised in Embedded Systems and industrial projects. They currently employ around ten people, including Software Developers, Test Automation Engineers, and Data Specialists. Their office is located in Tampere.


You'd work as a consultant in various projects in and around Tampere. Remote work from elsewhere in Finland might also be possible. Most of the projects concentrate on testing embedded software, but there has been some projects related to e.g. databases as well. The projects tend to be long term, with a minimum duration of one year. You'd be employed on a permanent contract with a fixed salary, so you don't need to worry about potential breaks between projects.


If you have experience in most of the below, you might be a great fit!

  • Robot Framework
  • Python
  • Embedded Software
  • Industrial Projects
  • Agile

We hope that you have close to five years of experience with Robot Framework and Python. Ideally you have developed test automation frameworks from scratch.

What's in it for you?

  • Fixed monthly salary of around 4500-5500€
  • Insurance package that covers your free time
  • Lunch, culture, sport and healthcare vouchers
  • Free use of a golf simulator!
  • Bicycle or financial support towards your commute
  • Opportunities to take part in internal decision making
  • Monthly lunches with the team and other events

The company has an extremely flat culture, and they welcome everyone to join them exactly as they are. They're a very relaxed group of people, connected by a passion for technology!

Our clients


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

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

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

Software Developer – Northampton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Software Engineer – Manchester

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.
