Test Development Engineer / Test Developer - Video Conferencing - near Reading - up to 60k plus excellent benefits
We have several fantastic opportunities available for talented Test Engineers of all levels to join a successful and growing company, founded by a group of video conferencing experts, who have broken away from traditional hardware architectures through the development of a software based, virtualised system.
Developed using Python, this unique product brings together previously incompatible video technologies seamlessly allowing participants to chat in high definition and share presentations. The work is immensely rewarding, both in terms of creating a robust, scalable, high-availability product, and a development environment that encourages individual engineers to have a real influence on features and functionality and gives them the opportunity to learn new skills and technologies.
Test-driven development is at the heart of the core product and, working within a small, supportive R&D team, this broad technical role covers the extension of the test environment (written in Python), writing of new tests, root cause analysis of any failed tests and troubleshooting third-party networking issues. As such, you will have a demonstrable background in the planning, developing and executing of test strategy. This may have been gained in a variety of technical environments but should include the design and development of tests plus a sound understanding of Linux and/or networking. Technologies used, which you will have the opportunity to learn, include Selenium, VMware, HyperV, SIPp, IP networking, video conferencing protocols, HTML5 and WebRTC (previous experience of one or more of these would be helpful).
Skills and Experience
Candidates must have achieved a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Science or Mathematics from a top UK university, those educated outside the UK need to have achieved the same standard. Please note that unfortunately we cannot consider applicants who are on a dependency visa or who require sponsorship.
