About the role
Dayshape has undergone rapid improvements thanks to the incredible efforts of our Product and Engineering teams. As Dayshape expands and our team grows, so do the chances of defects creeping in. We need to maintain (and automate) tight control of quality so that we can continue to move quickly and deliver a great product for our customers. That’s where you come in.
You will be motivated to constantly learn and be energised by working in a highly collaborative environment. We are using Cypress for test automation and we’d like you to join us on this journey as we adapt and coach our developers on creating the best testing frameworks. Whether it’s manual or automated, functional or non-functional, you will advocate for the most appropriate techniques to find the issues in the most efficient way. In our agile environment you will find a highly values-driven team that thrives on continuous improvement.
What you’ll do
You will join as either the sole or supporting Software Quality Engineer on a feature development team, focusing on improving and maintaining the quality of the Dayshape product. Putting yourself in the shoes of our users you will be:
Working closely with developers during agile development cycles, you’ll be:
We're looking for somebody who is passionate about continuous improvement and employing best practices. You'll be motivated to do things the right way, while acknowledging the need to be pragmatic and adaptable in a fast-moving environment.

What you’ll get
This is a full-time role (37.5 hours per week). We typically work from 09:00 - 17:30 from Monday to Friday, though we can be a little flexible around this, just let us know.
We’re ideally looking for someone in/around Edinburgh, though we’re open to the possibility of this being a remote role (as long as you're in the UK). We're making the most of flexible hybrid working, so you won't need to come into the office everyday (unless you want to!). Our remote staff visit the Edinburgh office periodically for team events, workshops, and to connect with colleagues in person.
Join the team!
Equality of opportunity is more than just a responsibility: we believe it’s a huge advantage to welcome a variety of experiences and perspectives into the team. Diversity is a great asset and, as such, we strongly encourage applications from any background.
This is your opportunity to really influence how we get things done, and how we measure and improve our capability to deliver software with high quality in a scalable way. We're doing well, but there's lots more to do in order to maintain the high bar and pace that we've set.
Everyone here is growing personally as the company grows, so if that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, we’d love to see your application.
