Senior QA Engineer - Performance Testing - Permanent

We're looking for an exceptional Senior QA Engineer with an in-depth understanding of performance testing, to join our Wellington team.


Permanent / Full Time

In the Digital Age, organisations need to ensure they remain relevant to their customers, respond quickly to competitors and innovate fast to find new markets. Delivering quality technology at pace will determine who succeeds in this new environment. We help our clients achieve this by employing amazing talent who can apply the best digital thinking, education, practices and technologies across the project lifecycle.

The role
If you are a Performance Testing whizz - we need you!  This role is not for the fainthearted!
We need someone who is a creative, critical thinker with proven performance test analysis skills; someone confident in taking a proof of concept through to a deliverable outcome.  You will need to be an excellent communicator with a passion for all things technical testing and technology.  You'll thrive on talking to both technical and business stakeholders so-as that they understand you, and you understand them.
Your ability to work in an environment where you can influence and direct change using tools and technology as your enabler is a must.  You'll come armed with an extensive test toolkit that you are passionate about sharing.
We are working on some of the biggest transformation projects in town, so you need to be confident in working across varying software methodologies and working to aggressive timelines......with even more aggressive PM's!
Did we mentioned that we also need you to lead a team?  You need to be a role model with the passion and confidence to set direction, mentor, support and grow the people around you.
And then of course, you'll need to meet the technical criteria too:

  • Strong test engineering, workload modelling, analysis and reporting skills
  • Extensive experience using both enterprise and open source tools such as LoadRunner and JMeter
  • Experience in using techniques such as visual models, BDD, specification by example(SBE), continuous integration and applying lean thinking is desirable 
  • A good understanding of enterprise I.T. architectures, software patterns and frameworks
  • Enterprise monitoring configuration and usage of OEM, Cacti, JConsole,  SPLUNK
  • Solid technical and scripting/coding skills in either Perl, Groovy and Java 

All this coupled with an ability to interpret technical detail and performance metrics and represent your findings as a business outcome and we'll be very interested in talking to you!
Develop your career
You'll have the energy, passion and enthusiasm to deliver quality outcomes confidently and at speed. You'll also have a desire to constantly improve yourself. At Assurity, you will have opportunities to learn and grow that will do just that.
