Does technology excite you? Do you get a buzz from releasing a great product or feature where you have been a part of its success? Do you relish in having autonomy and the room to make a difference? Do you see something going wrong as an opportunity to learn and make it better?

If you are nodding along, then you need to read on.

Razor isn't your typical agency - we do the really complicated stuff. We're a bunch of technologists at heart who love technology and solving problems. Our clients rely on us to extract the necessary information in order to create elegant solutions that keep them relevant and in front. We understand that people are the glue that holds projects together, which is why we invest heavily in finding the right candidates and retaining the people who are already with us.

Our recent growth is set to continue and we're looking for an experienced tester to own the testing discipline at Razor. We are looking for someone who will be able to conduct the majority of testing practices as well as introducing new patterns and practices, provide training/mentoring to both testers and developers, and increase the number of automated tests for new projects.

We are looking for someone to lead (not manage) our test team and to do this you need to be actively testing and be on the pulse of new technologies. We need you to foster ways of ensuring the quality of our diverse projects, from computer vision and machine learning to API's and mobile apps and everything in between.

Responsibilities

  • Promote all forms of automated tests
  • Influence others on the types of tests that should be used and when
  • Formalise a blueprint for the different types of tests
  • Ensure that the agreed standards are being followed
  • Create and implement test plans for new projects
  • Train/mentor testers/developers
  • Actual testing including creating and implementing test plans

We are looking for someone who enjoys both the explorative aspects of testing along with the process side. You will have a keen interest in technology and have a level of experience in automation testing and some level of coding understanding.

We work almost exclusively at Razor HQ in Sheffield, but travelling may be required now and again.

What to expect from us?

We pay you well and care about your development. We are flexible and offer flexible working hours. We understand that you are human and have a life outside of work. We don't expect you to slave away - we want you to be productive and happy.

We have a great working environment.

We will give you some of the best people to work with - people who you will be able to teach and who you will also learn a lot from.

The work we do is vast and varied and almost all targetted at Azure. We work on high scale concurrency ticketing platforms, IoT platforms with stream processing and big data analytics, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, cross-platform native mobile apps, bots, API's and of course websites.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries and have a clear vision of where we are going and who works well in our team. We are growing a culture with people who share our beliefs and want to enjoy the technology wave with us.


Razor is a place where you will be pushed to reach your full potential.

Are you ready to take the next step, to learn new things and to be pushed to the next level?
