Software Test Manager


Glasgow City (Open to remote/flexible options)

£60,000 – 65,000



This hands-on test management role would see you working within an agile product development team testing systems, software applications & platforms. This person should be a natural & caring leader with some line/ team management experience within a software testing environment. Ideally the Test Manager will not be totally hands-on and will like to keep themselves as close to the tools & technologies as possible whilst keeping an eye on emerging technologies & ideas.

This role will have technical responsibilities to go along with line management, test strategy, & team leadership. Great option for someone who enjoys a technical management role. Can consider candidates without official ‘manager’ title if they have had the appropriate responsibilities

This is very much with a tech for good company who are working to the end of enabling green energy & improving energy efficiency – with the dual benefit of looking after both the planet & the public’s wallet.



  • Must have some form of test management or leadership experience (does not need to be management over a large team, smaller teams are fine too)
  • Must be a former tester - coming from a hands-on software testing background.
  • Ability to lead with compassion & determination
  • Ideally a testing background where you have been performing or leading both manual & automation testing  
  • Active participation in Agile methods – stand-ups, reviews & retrospectives – and across the SDLC generally
  • History of driving forward a product or project team
  • Constant learner & awareness of modern or emerging testing processes
  • Analytical mind to recognise if processes/ ways of work
  • Testing from pre-production environments



You do not need to be an expert in all of this technology but experience across a selection would be very beneficial:

  • Java, C# or Python backend (Java ideal)
  • JavaScript frontend (any modern framework)
  • JIRA or Defect Management Tools
  • Windows & Linux platforms
  • Basic infrastructure or networking concepts/ familiarity (VMs, VPNs, remote desktop)
  • Public cloud (AWS/ Azure)
