Cloudhouse need a hands-on technical test engineer who enjoys working in an agile environment helping product development teams build code in a testable way. Our teams follow a lean development process and work directly with Product Managers and Stakeholders to ensure we deliver the right business value as often as possible.
You are passionate about software development, its design, the practices employed to build it, as well as the real-world problems it’s solving. For you the number one priority is to constantly deliver value to customers without compromising quality. You enjoy working directly with engineers, have a background as a software engineer and have experience of working in a test-first environment.
Our product teams are small, cross-functional, highly collaborative and work directly with customers and stakeholders to enhance and build core product features. As a member of one of these teams you will be responsible for the entire lifecycle of delivering our product, from identifying problems and assessing cost/value, all the way through to development and deployment.
Over the last few years Cloudhouse has been transforming the way it delivers product. At the very heart of this transformation has been to focus on the quality of the code we write. Among other things, we have found practices such as Pair Programming, TDD/BDD, Simple Design and Continuous Delivery incredibly powerful in ensuring we constantly strive to improve the way we work. As a Software Developer in Test you will be expected to work directly with our engineers right down to the unit-test level. A good understanding of the test pyramid is essential to ensure day to day tests are implemented at the right level.

We sometimes feel the need for downtime, so we have a separate breakout area with the latest games and consoles to unwind. Not really a gamer? We can change that - our full VR setup (HTC VIVE) is always ready to take you on an adventure that’s hard to forget.
