Who is Shine?

Formed in 1998 and headquartered in Melbourne, Shine has forged an enviable reputation for delivering real value to our clients. This is evidenced by our relationships spanning many years with clients including Coles, Telstra, Energy Australia, NAB, Medibank, ANZ and Sportsbet.  By combining our focus on business benefit with our deep technology skills and excellent industry experience, we can offer more than good technology - we can help our clients mitigate risk, realise their vision and deliver tangible benefits to their business. 

All our actions are underpinned by our core values of ‘People First’, ‘Sharing Deep Expertise’, ‘Pragmatic Delivery’ and ‘Integrity Above All’. You can expect to be listened to, challenged and have a career where success will be defined by what you make of it.

The Role

We would like to hear from professionals with a strong background in testing at all levels of the testing pyramid, with a focus on Automation Testing. You will bring proven ability to implement solutions to identify quality problems along with solid communication and stakeholder management skills.

You will demonstrate:

  • Demonstrated experience working with end-to-end feature teams and defining the QA process for your team. This may involve looking at the current development process for each team, identifying opportunities for injecting quality, and advocating for process changes to improve product quality.

  • Good understanding of what needs to be included in unit, integration, and end to end tests and can coach engineers on what needs to be automated.

  • Solid experience in automation testing along with strong background in API testing.

  • Proven ability to write manual regression tests for new, and existing features, and working with other software engineers to determine which tests need to be automated.

  • Experience in developing highly efficient test suites that provide the necessary coverage and confidence to release whilst minimising manual effort and build times.

  • Adept at identifying appropriate test scenarios including relevant edge and error cases.

  • Exceptional analytical and problem solving skills. You consider every possible scenario during exploratory testing and can spot bugs that others might not notice.

  • Confidence to not only diagnose issues in technical and business logic but support engineers and analysts diagnose their root cause.

  • Experience in delivering appropriate levels of testing documentation to support client needs and governance without compromising on teams agility and cycle time.

  • Ability to be the champion of best practices for testing within an organisation.

  • Ensuring the team meets the desired business acceptance criteria of each story.

  • Experience of working in an Agile environment.
