We’re looking for a talented software engineer to test our cloud-based services.

The company

RealVNC® is a highly successful software company based in Cambridge (UK) city centre.

The role

Our products allow people to remotely access computers simply and securely, and are supported by a variety of third-party business applications.  These applications interact with RealVNC’s entire product line, from our flagship VNC Connect to our SDKs, and are critical for day-to-day business operations.  We’re looking for an experienced software test engineer who can navigate the interactions between all of these applications and help keep them running smoothly through regular updates as we develop and expand our product line.

In exchange we expect you to be highly motivated, willing to explore novel solutions, and able to make a significant contribution to our products. 

The role will involve writing and designing test frameworks and associated regression and smoke tests in Java for integrated systems. Joining with the business applications team in day-to-day development activities including system design, planning, team procedures and problem solving. Assisting, training and advocating for key internal customers throughout the business and acting as an expert user. If you know you will be awesome in this job we want to hear from you!
