Job Description

About us

We own and develop the MyDyson smart home app, which is at the forefront of Dyson's IoT experience. We are proud of what we have built so far; we have an App Store and Google Play rating of 4.5 and 4.3 stars respectively, we have more than 1 million active users worldwide and our IoT platform has over 3 million connected Dyson machines. We have huge ambition to grow this platform and as we connect more machines from more categories the challenge is significant.

Our teams have the autonomy to manage their own work using Scrum or Kanban frameworks, each honing their ways of working through regular retrospectives and knowledge sharing. We all share a commitment to creating high-quality code, and engineers choose to follow practices such as pair programming, mobbing, and test-driven development. We also regularly share our knowledge and interests peer-to-peer through ‘community meetings’, which have led to the adoption of new technologies and improved cross-team collaboration.

We often need to interact with people from different parts of the business, such as embedded software and the cloud teams, so we plan in 5-sprint ‘increments’, based on the best bits of the Scaled Agile Framework. This gives us more visibility of upcoming work while remaining responsive, and allows us to collaborate effectively with other teams within our 11,000-person organisation.

About the role

We are on the lookout for Test Engineers to join our mobile app team at Dyson. Communication, collaboration, self-evaluation and a desire to improve are second nature to you, and you value good engineering practises. You understand the need to deliver robust, testable code balanced against the need to deliver fast.

  • Working with your fellow engineers to contribute to features and improvements to our MyDyson app, ensuring they are tested, robust and scalable
  • Working with colleagues from other disciplines, including developers, product owners, Scrum Masters, UX/UI designers, and software engineers in our cloud and embedded teams
  • Sharing knowledge within the app team to develop your skills and competencies and those of your teammates
  • Identifying new technologies, tools and approaches to help continually improve standards and quality
  • Writing UI automation tests
  • Coordinating exploratory testing sessions
  • Monitoring and prioritising bugs
  • Keeping the scrum team focused on a quality first mindset

Android: We write our unit tests with JUnit, Robolectric and Mockito, and our UI tests are written in Kotlin using the Espresso framework with Kakao.

iOS: Unit tests are written with XCTest and RxTest, and we write our automated UI tests in Swift using XCUITest.

We also have a handful of cross platform appium tests written in ruby, but we are migrating away from these in favour of XCUITest and Espresso.

Unit and UI tests are written as part of each story to ensure we maintain an up to date and comprehensive set of automated tests with no test debt. We complement our automated tests with exploratory testing, involving both developers and testers in order to uncover issues quickly.

About you

  • Minimally 5 years of experience in mobile testing.
  • You’re interested in how technology can improve the environments people live in
  • You’re a collaborative person that believes in the Agile principles and how they can help empowered teams deliver the best software
