WHAT YOU WILL DO
As Strategic Test Manager you will be our technical test expert and your responsibilities include creating and developing a common test strategy in Sweden, as well as building a test team that will work together with you to realise your strategy and vision. It will be your mission to build and form our future way of work.
You will be a part of our IT Department where we are around 40 dedicated employees and consultants. They are Developers and Product Owners with whom you will work closely together to assure we have well-functioning applications.
Since this is a new role you will be a part in shaping it, but from our perspective your responsibilities will include:

- Build, develop, lead and motivate your test team to ensure that the team has the right competence.

WHO ARE YOU?
To succeed as Strategic Test Manager at UC, you are first of all passionate about testing. You have solid work life experience within test from different environments, and comfortable and confident in your own competence. In previous roles you have lead teams in an agile environment and are comfortable in supporting and coaching development teams and testers to ensure that systems are designed for reliability, performance and testability.
We believe that you have the will and understanding to create a vision for how to work with test and the ability to get others to understand your vision. You find solutions to problems, stand up for your opinion, share your thoughts and ideas and are not afraid to challenge methods and ways of working to find the best way forward. Furthermore you have good social skills and communicate with ease with different stakeholders in the organisation.
Our technical environment is Java, Selenium, Protractor, Ready API and Postman, so you have previous experience from those or equal testing frameworks. If you have experience from integration, functional and non-functional tests that is a plus.
It is great if you have done a similar journey as the one we are going through, with establishing a companywide test strategy.
