  • To introduce automated deployment
  • Senior profile with a view to being a manager eventually. Writing test and being hands-on, as well as taking part in planning and strategy.
  • Ideally someone coming in from a big company looking to take on a challenge and owning it.


  • Understanding their tech challenges, and having experience across the board.
  • Goes without saying eCommerce experience is super desirable but not the be all and end all.

Why are they looking for QA Engineer?

  • Never done automated testing which is starting to become time consuming.
  • Their systems are evolving
  • They want to scale and need to scale, and they need extra support because the tech team is growing.
  • Challenges: building automated testing in a legacy system!

Tech stack

  • LAMP stack (10 year old legacy system) – open source – main tech: PHP / MySQL / JavaScript / HTML5
  • This might change in the future, but on a slow and gradual basis.
  • They are also about to embark on a micro-services survey, but due to having a legacy system at the moment, they won’t be rushing it.
  • As mentioned before part of it’s tech is legacy and part of it is a newer system which they are slowly trying to introduce.
