Want to be part of our story?

We are a group of distributed multidisciplinary engineers, passionate about casino gaming, focused on a few highly scalable distributed platforms on a hybrid technology stack running in public and private clouds.

The teams are small and move fast -- all members are expected to be able to achieve maximum results with minimal direction.

Job Description
The Software Engineer QA role will involve working alongside Development Managers, Software Architects, other QA team members and Senior Software Engineers under the supervision of the Head of QA in order to shape and implement the technology and product deliverables that will drive forward this strategic initiative.

The New Platform team will be more aggressively adopting newer technologies, architectural principles and approaches to development, deployment and monitoring. The Software QA Engineer will be critical to ensuring that test plans and scripts will be of high quality and maintained through the lifecycle of the project ready for future deployment of customer teams once they begin to implement the new functionality.

There will be a mixture of small, but strategically significant projects, and also large scale complex programmes of work, all delivered in an Agile format with direction from Product Management, but with delivery via a tightly contained team focused on quality deliverables across the platform.

The NPD team structure is currently being defined, so some aspects will evolve during the first 6 to 12 months, so a “can do” attitude and out-of-the-box thinking will be prerequisites!

Ensure high quality and accuracy is maintained through to the first production deployment

Provide feedback to the development team and ensure the work is carried out in accordance with the schedule and the quality requirements
Raise and monitor project and system related defects and ensure they are re-tested in a timely manner
