We are looking for a Website Tester

About you

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, motivated problem solver with a keen eye for detail (and hopefully a knack for breaking websites).

You should have some experience of testing web sites or web apps. Any experience of automated testing and writing test scripts would be beneficial but not essential. You should enjoy working collaboratively as part of a multidisciplinary team focused on one or more projects. We need someone who:

  • has a keen eye for detail
  • is organised and efficient
  • is able to analyse what websites should do and if they are doing it right
  • has a basic understanding of web development principles
  • is skilled at identifying and documenting bugs

About the role

As a website tester at Whitespace, you’ll be part of our UX and testing team based at our beautiful central Edinburgh office in the historic Norloch house. You will work alongside UX producers, designers, developers and account managers to test our client websites. You will be responsible for the day-to-day testing of the websites we build.

What you'll do

Whitespace is a fast-paced and exciting place to work, and you may be involved in many different activities, however your core responsibilities will include:

  • device and browser testing websites
  • performing manual testing for mobile apps and accessibility
  • logging and tracking bugs and verifying bug fixes
  • working with the other members of the project team to analyse what websites should do and if they are doing it right
  • providing testing estimates

This is a new position at Whitespace, and as such is a huge opportunity for the right candidate to grow and develop this role as far as their ambition will carry them. We'd love to be the first step on your future career in testing, and would be excited to help you develop your career alongside our testing strategies.
