Join Traveltek and play a part in shaping the future of online travel booking!

Traveltek is currently pursuing an aggressive global expansion strategy. The East Kilbride-headquartered firm, which also has offices in the Midlands, Sydney, Miami, Dubai, Singapore, Hyderabad and Hong Kong is looking to strengthen its market share in existing locations and establish a presence in new growing markets.

We are currently recruiting for a Test/QA Engineer to join our team in HiTec City, Hyderabad - India.

Want to create products that thousands of our customers around the world use all day long to help them do their job? Want to make a difference to customers speaking multiple languages, transacting in multiple currencies and dealing with the equivalent of millions of pounds of travel bookings every day? Want to test unique, complex technical solutions? Want to test the future of online travel booking user interfaces?

Traveltek are seeking an experienced Test / QA Engineer with 5+ years testing experience to join our development team within the fast-paced, ever evolving travel industry. You can help test the next generation of our products, allowing agencies and tour operators to better facilitate bookings for their clients. Join us!

You will help test a variety of travel websites developed by Traveltek for high-profile global travel providers.  The scope of the testing involved could be anything from a small feature increment on an existing website, to a fully-fledged end-to-end travel search and booking website built from scratch.  These websites are designed to be consumed on both desktop and mobile devices so you will need to know how to deal with those complexities as well!

Our back-office CRM system provides the day-to-day capabilities required by our customers to manage key aspects of their travel business.  Testing of this system will also form part of the Test / QA Engineer role.

You will work closely with our project managers and development teams to define user stories and associated acceptance criteria to help clearly define our customer requirements. You will help define the QA approach for a given project and provide associated effort estimates for the identified test activities.  You will design, create and execute test cases that will not only demonstrate adherence to the defined acceptance criteria but will minimise the risk to the product by interrogating the system capabilities in ways that are not immediately obvious to the system designers – creative thinking is actively encouraged! 

As a vital member of the project team you will participate in daily stand-ups to communicate status on the testing activities and highlight any issues the team need to be aware of for its success.  You will assist the project manager in the prioritisation, management and eventual closure of defects raised as part of the test activities performed. 

Once we get closer to product deployment, there are a variety of other activities you will be involved in from a QA perspective, including the review of user documentation, training material and deployment guides, as well as supporting on-going UAT activities with the customer. Post-deployment there’s no time for putting your feet up!  You’ll be actively involved in project retrospectives with an expectation that you’ll be able to recommend and help contribute to the implementation of improvements to both our processes and tooling.  This may also include the development and maintenance of automated UI and API test cases.

You will need to possess the following demonstrable skills and experience:

  • Testing web applications and the usage of associated debugging tools like Chrome developer tools.
  • Testing responsive websites across multiple device platforms, operating systems and browsers.
  • Testing REST and/or SOAP APIs.
  • Ability to design, create and execute test scripts using test design techniques.
  • Ability to conduct exploratory testing utilising high-level test charters.
  • An understanding of XML and JSON documents.
  • Ability to create and execute MySQL queries for complex database structures.

The following additional skills and experience would be beneficial:

  • Designing and implementing automated UI tests using Selenium.
  • Designing and implementing automated API tests using Postman or similar tools.
  • Non-functional testing.
  • Knowledge of Perl.
  • Familiarity with a Linux OS.

Most of all, you must be ready to learn. We do not stand still.

Team spirit

Join Traveltek and you become part of a team that values strong working relationships, career progression and shared success. We are committed to your development and job satisfaction in the firm belief that if you excel, so do we. We want you to play a key role in our evolution and expansion, becoming part of our ongoing success story – and the growing Traveltek family.

This position is subject to pre-employment checks.

Take your career to new heights with Traveltek. We look forward to having you on board!
