Do you care more about browser functionality than actually browsing the web? Do test scripts make your world go round? If so, then read on… 

A part of the team

Novicell is a full-service digital agency. We are about 30 good people in our London office, and you will have over 300 great colleagues across 8 offices in 5 countries. Our offices are in London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Aarhus (Denmark), Copenhagen and Oslo.  

We have more than 20 years of experience helping people do business online. From digital strategy, website design and user experience, to web development, digital marketing and business intelligence, our services cover the full online commercial lifecycle.  

At Novicell, our philosophy is that work should be enjoyed not tolerated. 

What are we looking for? 

Novicell is looking to increase its quality footprint at its London-based development team.  

We are seeking out another exceptional colleague who will fit our growing Shoreditch-based development team. Our team works together to create the best results for our customers through intelligent web solutions and online marketing. 

You will be working with a group of skilled developers and digital marketing specialists under the lead of great project managers.  

Your day-to-day tasks

As a QA Specialist, you will have a key role in our development department. Overall, it will be your job to ensure that we as a team deliver the highest quality web solutions to our clients. We imagine you do that in two ways.  

First, you will be responsible for testing, so: 

  • Conduct functional tests on all development tickets against agreed acceptance criteria before they are released to the client
  • This includes across browsers and devices
  • Agree browser/device specs 
  • Work with the team (PM, solution architect, developers, client) in drafting and assessing requirements including acceptance criteria that the development team will deliver against and you will test against 
  • Write test scripts/cases as required 
  • Ensure the testing process is followed by yourself and other team members 
  • Be proactive in finding new opportunities e.g. running accessibility reports, speed tests, proactive testing of old features 
  • Nice to have: the ability to write automated tests 

 Secondly, you’d be responsible for the work of raising quality standards across the department. The most important thing for us is that you have the courage and desire to move on the framework for both testing and quality assurance into the team.
