We are Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a world-leading academic publisher and assessment organisation, and a proud part of the University of Cambridge.

We are recruiting for a Junior Test Automation Engineer who will be part of our Test Automation Team.  This team is responsible for providing automation (i.e. automated Functional, Regression, Performance, and API testing) and RPA support to other teams.

Why should you join Cambridge?

Our mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Which is why every year, we give vital support to millions of people in more than 170 countries around the world. From teachers and learners to researchers and academics, we help to build confidence, unlock potential, and enable success. We give people the opportunity to show what they've learnt, we spread knowledge, spark enquiry, and aid understanding.

We achieve this by embracing change, and continuously focusing on our customers' needs. And by collaborating, and carefully listening to our customers and to each other, we keep moving forward, keep innovating, and keep finding newer and better ways of doing things.

When you join Cambridge, you get the best possible combination of a supportive, caring environment, balanced with work that brings out the best in you. You will have access to learning and development opportunities, and business tools essential for your role so that you can perform at your peak.


What can we offer you?

The key to our work is our colleagues, whose shared commitment enables us to have an ever-greater impact. We are a united, vibrant, and respectful global community of people, and we ensure that every individual is recognised, listened to, and cared for. And because our impact is amplified when our people are empowered, we give everyone the opportunity to develop in their own way. Whether you want a career that's linear, or want to follow your own path, we'll support you, and help give you the resources and training you'll need to be bold and take ownership of what you do.

This role will provide you with meaningful challenges to aid the users of the in-house Software Testing solutions developed by the team. You will be the Level-1 support that interacts with the business users to gather feedback and propose initial solutions. Other duties will include writing documentation to use for training and troubleshooting..

On top of these, working with Cambridge will also give you stability. We show our care for our people by allowing them to grow not just professionally but also personally. We promote work-life balance through flexible work schedules, hybrid work arrangements, and generous paid leaves. In addition, you will be entitled to our health care benefits, group life insurance, and robust wellbeing programs right on the first day of joining us.

What will you do in this role?

This role will require you to provide user-support to the tools supported by the team and keep the Lead up-to-date with project timelines and concerns. You will also be expected to manage status reports for Software Test automation projects and write guidelines and training presentations to help users understand the proper usage of tools. You will also be expected to assist in the research and development of other available tools that may be more fitting to the current solutions and provide insights in the development and design of the solutions that the team is supporting.

In addition, you will also be expected to:

  • Validate changes to the tools and report any issues to the Senior Software Test Engineer or Lead.
  • Develop classes/libraries to enhance the tools used by the team with close supervision of the Senior Software Test Engineer.
  • Develop and maintain automated test scripts based on the project's deliverables.
  • Execute manual tests for validation and ensure error-free project regression test execution

What makes you the ideal candidate for this position?

Our ideal candidate is a graduate of an IT course or a related discipline, with a good understanding of the software development process and the ability to communicate clearly and effectively with both technical and non-technical users. 

  • 1 year of manual or automated software testing experience and Java programming
  • Experience of working within an Agile development process (Scrum or similar).

Cambridge University Press & Assessment is committed to being a place where anyone can enjoy a successful career, where it's safe to speak up, and where we learn continuously to improve together. We welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of demographic characteristics (age, disability, educational attainment, ethnicity, gender, marital status, neurodiversity, religion, sex, and sexual identity), cultural, or social class/background.

We believe that diversity of thought, background, and approach create better outcomes. More importantly, fostering an inclusive culture is the right thing to do, and it's part of how we achieve our purpose: to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Ensuring that anyone, no matter who they are, feels they belong here is an essential part of who we are and the contribution we make to society, and to our planet.

To enable an environment which our people can thrive in, our customers benefit from, and where work complements life, we empower everyone to manage their time and capacity, and to prioritise their wellbeing. That's why from day one everyone at Cambridge University Press & Assessment can discuss flexible working options to find the best solution for them and their role.
