A phenomenal opportunity has opened up for a Software Engineer in Test to join our Openbet Delivery squad, part of our wider Sportsbook and Trading Tribe!

We don’t have Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose. So, whatever tribe you’re in, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, skills, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.

The ideal fit for the role should have experience in Java or Kotlin, as well as strong experience in version control tools.

Your role in ‘better’

  • We work as small agile squads consisting of engineers plus other supporting roles. As a Software Engineer in Test you will be key to driving the automation test approach for your squad. In addition, you will be part of a wider test community responsible for championing improvements to quality and test automation across Sportsbook and Trading.

  • Your will help to test industry-leading web and mobile applications, built on virtualised and cloud platforms. We work in teams that are evenly balanced with a mixture of specialists across front-end and back-end technologies: it’s your attitude and potential to learn and grow we’re looking for, not an oracle of any field or specific technology.

  • Every Engineer is passionate about their team and drives improvements in their field and the quality of their team’s systems. They share knowledge with others and are constantly learning and adapting their skills to push themselves and their team further.

  • We are not building a monolithic Enterprise app - think micro-services and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment.

How you’ll create ‘better’

  • Proficient in Java or Kotlin programming languages.

  • Good understanding of Page Object automated test design patterns.

  • Strong use of version control tools such as GIT.

  • You will work within the Openbet Delivery squad, where you will be given the autonomy to determine how to best approach the automated testing of your squads’ applications and services.

  • Choose the right approach using a combination of UI and API tests as appropriate

  • Providing guidance and support to colleagues which enables the whole team to contribute to testing.
