Job description/Person specification

As the demand for QinetiQ’s products and services continues to increase, we are looking to appoint a Software Test Lead to join our current team of talented engineers. You will play an important role in the team taking ownership for your work packages, supporting the delivery of cutting edge projects, shaping how delivery is executed and applying your test and development experience across a range of activities.

Essential skills & experience:
* Developing and managing test cases & test plans
Managing project reviews & audits
* Estimation of test effort for large and complex tasks
* Experience of software testing within a variety of methodologies, e.g. waterfall, agile scrum, CI/CD, DevOps.
* Experience working with AWS/Azure cloud infrastructure
* Experience of modern agile toolsets, e.g. JIRA, Confluence
* Experience of working with external organisations and customers
* Software V&V planning and acceptance testing
* Eligibility to gain UKSV SC Clearance

Desirable skills & experience:
* Experience of ITSM and ITIL frameworks
* Experience integrating test into CI systems
* Development of test automation frameworks
* ISTQB Advanced Level Test Manager
