LEAD QA ENGINEER (Retail & Studios Tech) | LONDON
We are in the process of landing the Truly Global Retail (TGR) programme, a huge technology transformation initiative to revolutionise our buying and merchandising capabilities which will allow ASOS to offer the most exciting, relevant product choice for our 20-something customers all around the world.
Landing TGR is the start of our journey, not the end. So we are looking for an amazing Lead QA Engineer to help get TGR over the line in the short term but remain focussed on medium to long term goals. By being passionate about testing and quality you will drive, evolve, maintain and improve our standards to build out great teams and test automation capability enabling the delivery of great new solutions and initiatives across the area to drive our business forward.
The role is initially about driving testing across our Retail Planning teams and helping teams deliver a high level of quality software. It's about helping the QAs in the team develop and leading by example, showing an appreciation of the bigger picture and helping to grow and advance the testing competencies of the team. It is expected that in time the scope will broaden out to other areas of Retail & Studios technology.
You'll also have amazing opportunities to learn and develop yourself, we give Pluralsight licenses to all our engineers, we provide training programmes and we offer one to one mentoring; we are as dedicated to helping you learn as you are.

  • Advise the teams with regards to development standards, frameworks and guidance to maintain consistency throughout the software development lifecycle
  • Provide technical guidance to teams around the test strategies for both manual and automated tests

  • Identify problems and issues and be able to implement solutions to prevent reoccurrence
  • Work with key stakeholders within ASOS to create and drive best practices
  • You've worked in an agile environment
  • You've got experience of coaching, mentoring and leadership
  • You have a good understanding of how to best design automated testing across the application layers
  • You've worked with complex systems within a large-scale IT programme preferably for retail applications as we'd ideally like to have someone with a core understanding of retail process
  • You have experience with non-functional testing such as performance, security and accessibility
  • You understand how to use tools to aid you in your testing
  • You have automation experience throughout the stack
  • You have experience shell scripting

  • You have excellent communication skills and can communicate risks at the appropriate level to different stakeholders
  • Pragmatic approach to evaluating the need for testing and knowing when to stop
  • Advocacy for responsible risk taking, testability and the testing role
Not essential but we'd also like to see:
  • Experience testing retail planning systems
  • Experience testing Oracle ADF applications
  • Experience testing Oracle RPAS applications
  • Experience with C#
  • Experience with enterprise integration technologies (e.g. Mulesoft or similar)
