Junior Software Test Engineer

Development · Barrington, Cambridgeshire

Employment Type Full-Time

Job Title: Junior Software Test Engineer

Reporting to: Trevor Hook

Role Summary:

This role is ideal for someone looking to start a career in Software Testing

We need a motivated Software Test Engineer to join our Software Testing team to help us ensure the quality of our client-server based products. Towards this end, you will be responsible for:

  • Designing, executing and maintaining our test scripts (manual and automated)
  • Identifying and tracking issues
  • Acting as an advocate for the end-user within the Development Team.

The role is mainly dealing with software, but we do supply a standardise PC to run our software on and full systems testing means evaluating the use of that hardware under varying network and environmental conditions.

The demonstrable high quality of our software is a key enabler to our regulatory clearances. The work of the Software Test Team provides the evidence of that quality.



You will:

  • Learn new software features and concepts quickly.
  • Develop and execute thorough test cases and plans (manual and automated) for multiple products/features.
  • Use excellent verbal and written communication skills to thoroughly document test plans, scripts, reports, and results.
  • Contribution to design discussions.



  • Must have analytical and problem-solving skills. Excellent attention to detail and follow-up.
  • Must be a quick learner who finds and applies new concepts and technologies necessary to solve the problem at hand.
  • Must be an excellent team player who works well with others to achieve on-time, quality product releases that meet customers’ needs.



Applicants must live and have the right to work in the UK


Working environment

Cydar is based in Barrington, just outside Cambridge. Our offices are located in a historic water mill with views over the surrounding countryside.

Due to the pandemic we are currently working in a fully distributed way. We have always given support for flexible working arrangements and this has enabled us to adapt well to the changes required during the last few years of COVID lockdowns. We will continue to offer flexible working arrangements once home working is no longer an imperative — arrangements for a balance of office- and home-based working at other times can be discussed.
