Who are we?

At Seccl, we’re on a mission to rebuild the infrastructure of investments and advice. We provide the technology that allows people to access financial markets – buying and selling investments, and holding them in tax wrappers like ISAs and pensions.

Our software allows ambitious fintechs to quickly get to market with innovative investment or advice products – and helps financial advisers and investment managers to build stronger, more valuable businesses, by operating their own investment platform.

Ultimately, we want to create a world where everybody can access the financial markets, or find the help they need, more easily and affordably than ever.

We recently became part of the Octopus Group – an innovative, £9bn+ group of companies that’s on a mission to breathe new life into energy and financial services, and improve the lives of millions of people.

How can you help?

We are looking for a talented QA Engineer to join our amazing team and work on a range of exciting products. You will be looking to perform testing both manually and seek to automate wherever possible. You will bring new ideas to the team and contribute to the QA framework.

What will you be doing?

You will be testing across web applications and APIs, working with and challenging product owners and engineers to improve test coverage and to discover untested scenarios. You have a good understanding of software development cycle including automation. You care about the quality of your output and are open to others help and critique that will allow us to achieve consistent high standards throughout the team.

Who are we looking for? You’ll be someone who…

  • Enjoys testing all the products throughout the development process and working closely with the engineering and product teams
  • Has the ability to work across multiple projects and is adaptable to a fast paced, high growth environment
  • Strives to achieve high test coverage across our product and development lifecycle

  • Works autonomously, taking ownership for personal and team delivery and outcomes
  • Has experience of moving from simple user stories to TDD/BDD stories that use Gherkin
  • Is ISTQB qualified, or similar qualification (desirable)

How do we work?

We’re a team of ambitious, talented, and creative people who are passionate about using technology to improve our financial world.

We have a positive, open environment that promotes fresh ideas, challenge and experimentation, and encourages continual learning. We provide flexible working that focusses on delivery rather than just focusing on hours worked.

We’re based in the historic City of Bath, a stone’s throw from the train station. (Literally. You could hit it from our office.)

And the vital statistics?

  • Competitive salary
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Exposure to the latest technology and an opportunity to help shape the future direction
