tombola is a family owned company based in Sunderland which operates the UK's, Spain's and Italy's biggest on-line bingo websites, (with offices in Madrid, Milan and Gibraltar).

Our approach is different to many of our competitors in that we produce all of our software ourselves; in fact just about every aspect of tombola is managed in-house. We have created all of our own games and take pride in our technical innovation and the strength of the development and design teams who use cutting edge technologies to drive the business forward.

We are currently seeking Test Analysts to join our new testing function here at tombola.

What will you do?

Successful candidates will be integrated into a high calibre team which provides a full development life-cycle - from concept and idea generation, to development, testing and ongoing support. You’ll have prior experience of testing across a variety of browsers and devices, ideally within a highly regulated industry.

Quite simply we love tech and you’ll share this passion and use it to:

  • Analyse software requirements and ensure clarity of understanding.
  • Understand the goals and real world application of the Test Strategy.
  • Define software features, with the assistance of Dev and product owners and define test scenarios within those features.
  • Design test scenarios based on project documentation.
  • Test software releases by executing assigned tests.
  • Report defects to the required standard to the Lead Developer.
  • Provide inputs to the team in order to improve the test process.
  • Keep up-to-date on the development technology, the popular testing tools and the business domain.
  • Work in a growing, autonomous team.
  • Provide feedback on colleagues’ code.

About you

Employees at tombola are passionate about their chosen career paths and if successful, you'll be working with people that love what they do – therefore, you should too.

We look for the following from our people:

  • Good communication. It sounds clichéd but things like being able to express your ideas clearly, talking to non-technical colleagues and effective feedback during code reviews are incredibly important.
  • A desire to learn. Our dev teams do a lot of things other companies don't, so there is a lot to learn. But that's a good thing as we don't want to stand still. We want people who want to improve themselves.
  • Suggest improvements. We're constantly looking to improve the way we do things. From managing our workloads, to the way we deliver our code. We have an open attitude to new ideas. If you don’t like the way something is done all we ask is that you suggest a better way of doing it.
  • Think of new and unique ways to improve our customers experience. Ultimately that is what tombola is about, giving value to customers.
