Test Engineer


At Annex we deliver high quality software in rapidly changing agile environments. To do this we need test engineers that work with the team to ensure the things we build are tested when and where it matters.

Our test engineers use automation, not because it’s trendy, but because it allows us to rapidly iterate on what we build and it gives back time to the team to focus on what we are trying to achieve with our clients. Plus it’s much more fun (and less error prone!) than manually testing things over and over again. 

As part of this role you will design and implement appropriate test plans involving automated and manual elements - empowering our teams to deliver high quality outcomes with our clients.
