BBC Future Media’s ambition is to create the most valued open digital media services in the world. We want to transform the BBC for an interactive, on-demand world and find new ways of reaching audiences wherever they are, with new formats across PC, TV, mobile devices, gaming platforms (like Xbox), and recorders like TiVo.

Our teams in London, Salford, Glasgow and Cardiff all work in a fast paced Agile environment with multidisciplinary teams, consisting of Software Engineers, Web Developers, Developers in Test, Test Engineers, Project Managers, and Product Managers, and work closely with designers and editorial staff. We use our knowledge and application of audience research, new and emerging technologies, combined with creativity and collaboration across the BBC’s content divisions, to deliver world class digital products and services which deliver reach, quality, impact, and value for the BBC.

About the roles

We’re recruiting at all levels of experience, be that Junior, Mid-weight, Senior or Principal Test Engineers. Whatever your level you will collaborate with the product team and engineering teams to design appropriate test plans, write acceptance tests and other test artefacts and to carry out manual and automated testing of applications in order to ensure the team achieves successful delivery of high quality software for our major online products.

You will promote QA best practice across the department and advocate test-first principles where possible. You will execute non-automatable acceptance tests and exercise exploratory testing and ensure cross-browser compliance across different devices including PC, Mac and mobile handsets. You’ll work closely with Software Engineers, logging and informing them of defects and re-tests, utilising your basic programming and web architecture knowledge to do so effectively. You’ll display creative approaches to testing the “untestable” and defining test data as well as continually learning new relevant technologies to up with industry and apply them to the job.

About you

You’ll have experience testing across a variety of web based applications, systems, platforms and architectures in a new media environment and again using Agile development practices. You’ll be skilled and creative when making manual test artifacts with an ability to write clear, concise and readable test specifications. Cross-browser compliance and browser development tools are second-nature to you and you’ll have experience testing applications on various devices (e.g. mobile, tablet, TV) and using emulators. You’ll have experience tracking down the area of defect using de-bugging tools (e.g. Firebug and analysing stack traces). You’ll also have knowledge of HTML, CSS, HTTP, Javascript as well as the major operating systems, including Windows, OSX and Linux.
