About us

The Education and Skills Funding Agency is an executive agency of the Department for Education, committed to providing world-class education to everyone. We’re accountable for the funding of education and training, making sure that taxpayers’ money is spent wisely as we equip educators and learners to succeed. We’re leading the way in digital, too, building strategic services that will improve every aspect of education across the country. We change lives every day. And the Data Operations team plays a pivotal role, managing the data that guides our decisions.

The role

This is a fantastic place to work. You’ll be joining a top 100 digital leader, using the very latest technology to transform Government - across some of the most interesting services. We’re developing AI tools, shiny web-based packages, reporting tools using Power BI, and data collection services via cloud-based applications. And you’ll have the backing of a highly-skilled - and highly-supportive - team.

Joining an evolving quality assurance team, this is an opportunity to shape a software testing strategy in its infancy. And you’ll play a pivotal role in helping the Data Science division to deliver excellent products, in a fast-paced, hugely varied environment.

As a Senior Software Test Engineer, you’ll identify and install testing frameworks across an exciting variety of products, writing and executing functional and non-functional tests at each level. You’ll make sure we meet agreed acceptance criteria, using a risk-based approach to uncover the defects others would miss.

About you

If you’re excited about learning, software innovation and driving real transformation, you’ll fit right in. You’ll have significant experience in functional, performance or security testing, creating test scenarios, manipulating large datasets and leading work items and defects. You’ll also have worked in a multi-functional delivery team with other developers, testers and business analysts.
