QA Engineer

We’re on the lookout for a QA Engineer, to join a team of passionate and highly skilled humans building amazing digital products and experiences.

  • £38,000 - £46,000
  • Etch London

Our product teams are deployed into businesses to build forward-thinking responsive websites and web apps. They do this by splitting their time between being the embedded team on-site and working back at the London or Southampton base with the wider Etch team (usually a 70/30 split).

The product team is driven to create the kind of business change that allows organisations to really flourish and engage with their customers, getting them further faster. As a result, each team member plays an exciting key role in building relationships and demonstrates a proven ability to work with partners first hand on-site.

QA is an integral part of any engineering department and this will be a sole role so we are looking for a passionate candidate that can help improve standards throughout the product lifecycle and bring strong QA practices to the team.

You will be working closely with User Experience Architects, Product Designers and Developers to help solve technology challenges for businesses and general users.
