Job Description


At Festicket, quality plays an important role in the integrity of our platform and service, and we aim to take a holistic approach to quality in everything that we do. We use a lot of automated tools for our staging and testing environments, and our commitment to CI/CD means that we frequently release into our live production environment and we pride ourselves on good test coverage. Since we are very product-focussed, we expect everyone in our technology department to contribute to designing solutions in support of business outcomes. We are explicit at the technical planning stage, which means we typically don’t have a tech lead in our cross-functional teams. Therefore our environment best suits experienced Quality engineers who are comfortable defining their own workload with minimal supervision.


Duties & Responsibilities

  • Perform testing utilising the appropriate testing approaches and methodologies
  • Debug, record and manage defects throughout their lifecycle
  • Participate in all Agile rituals (3 amigos, stand-ups, retros, planning, etc)
  • Support creating technical and testing technical documentation
  • Analyse business requirements and consistently provide constructive feedback
  • Efficiently and effectively collaborate to understand the application under test
  • Be a quality advocate in your team and the wider tech & product team
  • Contribute to automation efforts in your product team



Skills and knowledge

  • Commercial experience as a Quality Assurance Engineer, Test Engineer or similar on web applications, e-commerce, SaaS/CRM/CMS or similar platforms
  • Good understanding of testing fundamentals, including exploratory testing, risk-based testing;
  • Confident with REST API and Web GUI testing
  • Good at testing the ideas for new features using a risk-based mindset for structuring your testing
  • Experience with a variety of tools and a good understanding of which context to apply them in
  • Proven experience working within a fast-paced Agile team
  • Excellent fault finding, debugging and diagnostic skills


Behaviours we expect you to demonstrate in this role:

  • Extremely organised and methodical whilst remaining pragmatic
  • Confident collaboration with technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • A great communicator who is being open, honest and direct


Additional characteristics we expect our entire team to demonstrate:


  • Adaptability and flexibility in the ever-changing world of a scale-up dealing with the challenges of a global pandemic that has hit the live music industry harder than most other sectors
  • Intellectual curiosity, and the confidence to ask questions until you understand
  • Positivity and a can-do mindset when faced with new opportunities
  • Self-motivation and a sense of pride in achieving stretch goals on your own merit
  • Comfort receiving and providing constructive criticism, as well as ‘managing upwards’


  • Competitive salary
  • 25 days a/l + bank holidays
  • Flexible salary via wagestream
  • Flexible and remote working
  • Discounts to selected music festivals
  • Enhanced maternity
