Working at Red Gate
A place to do great work
Testing at Red Gate isn't an afterthought, it isn't a bolt-on activity, it isn't 'quality assurance', it isn't a second-rate role, it isn't a separate department, and it is definitely not an unskilled, keyboard bashing role.
As a Red Gate test engineer you will be part of a high quality, high performing, multi-role team. You have input into everything that happens in that team from the planning and design stages of a product or feature right through to the release and post-release support. You will be at the forefront of ensuring usability and reliabilty of our products, something Red Gate takes very seriously.
What makes you a Red Gate test engineer?
- You work well in a small team
- You are passionate about software testing
- You make the team care about quality
- You feel sad when a user reports a bug
- You see the software through the user's eyes
- You know exploratory testing is more than random keyboard mashing
- You can write code as well as talking to developers about it
- You can explain why automated testing is better than manual testing
- You can explain why manual testing is better than automated testing
- You take pride in the quality and accuracy of your bug reports
- You engage with the wider testing community
- You know you don’t know everything about testing
- You've already spotted the typo in this advert!
But once you join Red Gate, it doesn't stop there. You will have the potential to grow in many directions. Perhaps you want to specialise in a test technique or technology, be more involved with the user experience testing, adopt more of a lead role, mentor junior test engineers, or generally influence the test process on your project; it's down to you.
