Job description

About the role 

One of my best clients, and one of the best tech companies in Sydney are looking to add a Software Development Engineer in Test to the team. When they say development, they mean it, as this role will require a rock-solid tester who can code and build strong, long lasting test frameworks from scratch, and has a strong handle on at least one coding language, PHP or JavaScript preferred. They're a high-performing, low ego team who always deliver high level code, but now they're looking to bring on someone to evangelize and own the quality and testing across the team, being hands on while also inspiring and engaging with engineers to ensure best practices are adhered to.

They don't want a test engineer who will just point out a problem and bring it to the team, but one who can debug and even sometimes code a solution. There is an established suite of automated test cases in place, but this role would bridge the gap and improve on those cases. 

Skills Needed:

  • Strong testing skills
  • The ability to code and create automated test cases
  • Some coding ability, ideally JavaScript or PHP
  • Strong communication skills 
  • A passion for best practices
  • At least 3 years experience in the industry

How to apply 

This is a fantastic role and a great opportunity for an engineer who loves testing but can also code. I've worked extensively with this team in the past and there's always a drive for growth, innovation and looking out for the team, so if you're interested in this role, apply here, or email me (Tom) at
