We want to make you one of our Specialist Software Developer consultants that specialises in Automation - 2020/21 Opportunties across the UK. 

Please note: Currently, due to the circumstances, all our training is being done remotely. However, this may change depending on the clients you're placed with and the nature of your work as not all projects can be delivered remotely.

What is a Software Developer Engineer in Test (SDET)? 

Development is at the core of defining, developing and maintaining products for businesses and their customers. Development is a playground where you can create what’s needed when you need it. 

As a Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) you play a vital role working within a cross-functional team, participating in the development of software with a primary focus being on the testability and performance of software applications. 

You’ll be able to set up full frameworks to perform thousands of tests in a heartbeat on multiple application platforms such as mobile, desktop and web. This feeds into every level of test whether it’s unit level, functional, performance and regression. 

Automation is a major component of agile teams who work diligently to deliver value in short time frames, the execution of scripts and their application in the DevOps pipeline can mean delivery of functional code in unprecedented timeframes. 

You will become a highly proficient consultant; we believe in engineering first which means you will be able to design and write code with the additional benefits of being able to build automation frameworks and processes from scratch using C# or Java.
