Quality Assurance
Edinburgh, UK
Posted on Monday, December 11, 2023

FanDuel Group is a world-class team of brands and products that deliver sports betting, gaming and entertainment to millions of US sports fans every day. That’s no easy task, and wouldn't be possible without a fantastic team who have helped us pioneer new products and innovative features that make us a leader in the industry. Whether you’re looking for better career progression, improved financial security or just a better sense of belonging, we believe we’ve created a culture in which everyone can succeed, no matter how you got here.

The Position

This role sits within our Free2Play vertical, which develops free to enter playable games across our products. Our Quality Engineering team within this space are seen as facilitators and educators in the quality engineering space, rather than being fully embedded and dedicated to a single team.

The Free2Play Quality Engineering team focuses on improving automation testing mostly across web and as a Senior Quality Engineer you will focus on deciding what best practices look like; what tools and technologies should be considered and engage with the development team to champion quality engineering (so you’ll have a lot of influence!). Because of this, there is an element of research and development in this role, and a variety of different projects/tools/tech to get stuck into!

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Carrying out both manual and automated testing including creating frameworks (using Java, JavaScript, Cypress)
  • Focusing on ‘shifting left’ with the implementation of CI/CD pipelines
  • Advising on different tools, technologies and ways of working for different teams
  • Educating the wider technology teams about the importance of quality engineering and how to consider a quality mindset in their work
  • Carrying out POCs with various tools/technologies
  • Contributing to and guiding the initiative to replace backend integration tests

What We’re Looking For

Your experience will include most of the following:

  • Experience with automated testing across front and backend with Java and JavaScript (essential)
  • An ability to explore and understand complex microarchitecture
  • Experience working with and influencing the wider technology team around quality engineering and best practices
  • Mentoring, coaching and knowledge sharing with other colleagues
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills, as well as an ability to work independently
  • Experience across API testing (essential) and contract testing (a bonus)

What You Can Expect

  • Interesting work - working in a fast-paced and ever-changing industry, new problems and exciting solutions are never too far away. There are always opportunities to learn new skills and broaden your horizons
  • A sense of achievement - Our teams own their own software and when that awesome new feature ships to users and the positive feedback starts rolling in, you can feel really proud of what you and your team created
  • Personal development - clear and defined career pathways for every role at every level, a supportive manager, loads of learning opportunities and even 10% of your time to dedicate to your learning.
  • Belonging - everyone at FanDuel works for each other, we win together, make mistakes together and have lots of fun doing it.
  • Trust - A trusting work environment where productivity is valued above all else, giving you autonomy and ownership of your time and work
  • Great financial package - Including salary, bonus, pension, private healthcare, share save scheme, flexible working & holiday policy along with a number of other benefits.
