Quality Engineer - Front-End



Software Engineering, Quality Assurance
Edinburgh, UK
Posted on Thursday, June 6, 2024

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 Quality Engineer role is based within one of our teams in the Account vertical who focus on acquisitions (our offer to sign-up pipeline for customers). There is an element of research and development as the team investigates various offers, and aims to offer further personalisation to our potential customers.

As a Quality Engineer, you’ll work within this development team to effectively and efficiently deliver high-quality products and services. You can expect to not only carry out both manual and automated testing (mainly front-end), but decide on how to test; what best practices look like; and engage with the development team to champion quality engineering, building quality into our everyday delivery process (so you’ll have a lot of influence!).

It’s a great opportunity to really take ownership of quality engineering, and have a pretty rapid impact within this team.

Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Investigate, examine and understand our products and the continuous change that they go through
  • Balance the act of performing testing with the act of providing capabilities and coaching software engineering teams in Quality Engineering practices and standards
  • Create test plans, thinking about any risks, the approach, the environment, reporting etc.
  • Reviewing existing legacy automation and decide on how to progress
  • Identifying areas for automation testing
  • Using strong communication skills to build collaborative relationships with the wider technology team
  • Using tech such as Java, JavaScript, Cypress, Postman

What We’re Looking For

  • Practical experience with end-to-end testing, exploratory testing, acceptance testing, unit testing, contract testing (PactFlow) and more
  • Experience in both designing and implementing automated tests in a CI/CD environment, building testing automation into FanDuel pipelines
  • Proficiency in programming with JavaScript and Cypress for automated front-end testing
  • Understanding of Agile methodologies

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.
