Work On Award Winning Products. Immediate Start!

Job Duration: Permanent

Salary: £19,400 – £21,700 

Closing Date: Friday 5th October 2018

Ever thought about testing software and devices for racing yachts or cutting-edge medical devices? Dreamt of working on globally recognised, award-winning products? Or wished you worked just minutes from the beach – with flexi-time?

At Bluefruit, that’s what we do.

Join & shape our growing team of embedded and IoT experts in Cornwall and work on quality software for intelligent products. Known worldwide for the quality of our software and our agile practices, clients come to us for reliable, innovative and high quality software solutions. And with the current explosive growth in the embedded and IoT industry, demand for our services gets bigger every day. That’s why we’re looking for logical team players to join our Test Team as a Software Test Engineer across a number of exciting new projects.

About you:
As a Software Test Engineer you will be a keen problem-solver, you love working to a very high standard and you want to work as part of a high-performing team. In this role you will become an integral part of a team supporting our Software Engineers as they release new software to clients. You will be providing a continuous and effective testing service to the teams whilst also being responsible for resolving hardware issues.

You will have a clear understanding of the necessity of quality, be methodical in your approach and tidy in your presentation. It is essential that you have an enquiring and logical mind with problem solving skills, and an openness to ongoing frequent training and upskilling. You need to be good team player, but also have the ability to work alone. The ability to communicate clearly and effectively is of great importance. We also embrace a “can do” attitude.

Formal academic qualifications aren’t required but a keen interest in either Computing or Electronics would be highly beneficial.

And us:
At Bluefruit, we don’t just talk about work/life balance – we actively encourage it. From flexible working hours, to letting our people create their own working environment, we work hard to ensure everyone here enjoys coming into work. We’re also a recent winner of an Excellence in Business Training Award and we’re committed to providing training for everyone in the company to realise their potential. Our company was created by engineers for engineers, and it’s important to us that all our people have a say in how we develop our business.

Our culture is built around an unerring focus on delivering high-quality software for intelligent products that users love and clients value. We encourage efficient and open communication, and shared responsibility for design and implementation. And we review each other’s work all the time – everyone at Bluefruit constantly seeks out opportunities to learn and improve.
We’re privileged to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK – and we all want time to enjoy it, so we focus on flexi-time, not overtime.

We also provide many other benefits, including:

  • – Flexi-time
  • – Great maternity and paternity leave benefits
  • – Free on-site parking
  • – Childcare vouchers
  • – On-site gym and café
  • – Free fruit, tea, coffee (espresso machine)
