Linguamatics: Test Engineers and Senior Test Engineers


Linguamatics is looking for software test engineers to work on Linguamatics’ world-class natural language processing software.

The role is focused primarily on our expanding suite of products for life science and healthcare applications, but the test team support all parts of the company so if you joined us you might find yourself helping the operations team on a new cloud deployment or discussing the contents of our webinars or demos with an application specialist, or proofing marketing copy on any given day.

We see testing as providing information to enable stakeholders to make decisions and we’re flexible about how we achieve that. So you might be working alone, paired, as part of a small team or in an all-hands blitz of some functionality. We are prepared to use exploratory testing, test tours, checklists, test scripts, randomisation and anything else that we think will give the result we need. We test manually and use tools and automation, depending on the situation at hand, and we eagerly solicit peer review and perform regular retrospectives to help us improve ourselves and our work.

If you get the job you will be expected to

  • take responsibility for your work
  • apply intelligence and judgement at all times
  • be able to justify your position and be prepared to discuss alternatives
  • look for ways to improve yourself, your work, the team and the company

You will have most or all of the following attributes

  • experience in software testing
  • experience in agile development
  • experience in programming or scripting (e.g. Java, Perl)
  • great communication skills, written and spoken
  • analytical skills
  • a questioning mind
  • high intelligence
  • flexibility, adaptability
  • pragmatism
  • creative thinking
  • strong initiative
  • desire to self-learn
  • desire to share

It’d be good if you had background in or knowledge of some of these

  • life sciences, healthcare, chemistry, biology
  • natural language processing
  • foreign languages
  • security
  • performance testing
  • test automation
  • exploratory testing
  • web services, applications (e.g. REST, HTTP, JavaScript, Fiddler)
  • SQL or other database technologies

And what you’ll get from us is:

  • great colleagues with outstanding team spirit
  • interesting, challenging and varied work
  • a license to test the way that best suits the task at hand
  • a team that’s open to change and continuous improvement
  • a company that’s growing fast and cares about its employees
  • the opportunity to make a difference

This is a challenging and exciting position in a rapidly growing company with headquarters in the UK and an expanding presence in the US.  If you think you have the right skills and experience, and are ready to make an outstanding contribution to the success of our business, please send your CV with a covering letter by email to:
