    Main purpose of the role & responsibilities in the business:

    As a Senior NFT Engineer (Senior Associate) in Kainos, you’ll work within a multi-skilled agile team, developing and executing Non-Functional tests. You’ll do this whilst learning about new technologies and approaches, with talented colleagues who will help you learn, develop and grow. 


    Minimum (essential) requirements:

    • Good technical ability and experience using JMeter or similar tools to create and maintain NFT scripts.
    • Expertise in performance engineering and analysis, designing performance tests around load, stress and soak testing.
    • Knowledge of Cloud Platforms and strong working knowledge of monitoring tools such as Dynatrace, Kibana and Zabbix.
    • Understanding of different delivery methodologies (e.g., agile, waterfall, v-model) and how testing fits within them. 
    • Experience in analysing server logs for fault detection.
    • Good problem solving and analytical skills.
    • We all work in teams here in Kainos – a proven ability of strong team skills, including working in a multi-disciplinary team is crucial.



    • Strong use of CI tools such as Jenkins and GitHub.
    • Technical awareness and a sound understanding of software architectures. 
    • Ability to understand NFRs and liaise closely with Architects and Product Owners.
    • Experience working in Continuous Integration environment and configuring tools for testing such as Jenkins and/or TeamCity. 
    • Experience testing within Agile delivery environments. 
    • Experience with version control systems such as Git/SVN.
    • Experience working closely with developers.
    • Proven test leadership in testing modern, scalable, secure, performant applications in line with software testing principles and practices. 
    • Expertise in effective defect management and triage strategies. 
    • Experience in a manual or automated testing role or similar, either from commercial experience or from previous studies.
    • We are passionate about developing people – experience in managing, mentoring and coaching junior members of staff is important.
    • Good verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to communicate issues to other technical people, and sometimes to non-technical people.


    Our vision is to enable outstanding people to create digital solutions that have a positive impact on people’s lives. Our values aren't abstract; they are the behaviours we expect from each other every day and underpin everything that we do. We expect everyone to display our values by being determined in how obstacles are overcome; honest when dealing with others; respectful of how you treat others; creative to find solutions to complex problems and cooperative by sharing information, knowledge and experience. These values, applied collectively, help to produce an outstanding Kainos person, team and culture.


    We're an inclusive bunch at Kainos and we believe in equal opportunity. We welcome applications from all walks of life, including those with criminal records. Everyone who is offered a position here undergoes a basic background check , however no one is treated differently due to their background where it isn't relevant to the role. It's important to note - failure to reveal information which is relevant to the position sought, could result in us having to withdraw the conditional offer of employment.


    In short: Having a criminal record will not exclude you from a career with Kainos. This depends entirely on the nature and requirements of the position, together with the circumstances and background of offences. Kainos has a policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders (available on request).
