Senior QA Engineer – Shift-Left environment


Why is our Gateway 2.0 tribe the next step for you?


Our mission is to be the fastest, quality delivery machine centred on delivering:


- Worldpay’s online proposition for small and medium sized businesses; focus on simplicity – exemplified by merchants’ ability to start accepting payments within hours

- Worldpay’s next generation Payment Gateway for global e-Commerce players; elastically scalable, fault tolerant solution. Utilises Worldpay’s unrivalled data to deliver superior payments outcomes and allows rapid, safe change by decoupling merchants from payment processing with our next generation Hypermedia API


Both propositions offer modern APIs and utilise public cloud hosted infrastructure. Our platforms are based on a polyglot technology stack, delivered as microservices, using Java/Spring Boot, Scala/Play/Akka, Cassandra/RDS. The infrastructure operates in a hybrid cloud mode across AWS and on-premise using Terraform, Ansible, OpenShift, Kubernetes.


Our squads are product-aligned with end-to-end ownership of product features. They are cross-discipline encompassing design, development, quality assurance and cloud infrastructure expertise. Our squads embrace DevOps culture and Continuous Delivery.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?


You’ll be the strongest advocate for product quality, be resolute in the pursuit of perfect software and define acceptance criteria for units of work in collaboration with squads. You’ll perform manual testing to verify independent units of work and make sure engineering adheres to agreed KPIs and NFRs in production; ensuring stability, scalability and security for all shippable releases.


We’ll want you to manage test and release plans for continuous delivery of product releases. You’ll work closely with squads to build a world class engineering pipeline, ensuring that releases are stable, scalable and secure when deployed to live service. You’ll actively contribute to the QA engineering ‘Chapter’ (practice areas) within the Gateway 2.0 Tribe.


What will make you the ideal candidate?


You’ll have strong experience of testing in an Agile environment and experience with a Shift-Left approach to QA. You’ll have a strong understanding of INVEST principles and the test automation pyramid. We’ll want you to demonstrate strong experience defining acceptance criteria, as well as expressing acceptance criteria for functional and non-functional requirements.


Experience with performance testing, consumer driven contract testing and AWS is advantageous, as well as knowledge of SQL and CQL (Cassandra).
