Deloitte, Software Tester, The Product Factory, Belfast

Role description

At Deloitte, a recent response to the observed speed of change in business operations across many of our clients has been the creation a distinct business unit within Deloitte, called the Product Factory that is dedicated to building new commercial software products. These are derived from innovations devised within the traditional Deloitte service lines. The Product Factory is a new team that designs, builds, delivers and supports these commercial software products.

This Product Factory engineering team is not client-facing or on client-site. Rather, it is focussed on long-term product delivery rather than shorter-term project delivery. It is a team that operates alongside the Consulting Service line but does not operate via a traditional consultancy model.

The highly agile team operates across London and Belfast, supporting and building a growing portfolio of products. Work is currently underway to rebuild our flagship product and as part of that journey the team is evolving their capabilities, skills and effectiveness. We are seeking people who can help grow and contribute to the quality of this growing team.

The testing role in this team within the Product Factory will provide not only key investigative activities to give crucial information to product owners and developers about issues discovered in the product. In addition, you will be a core member of the test team, involved in defining test team processes, release testing strategy, test team management and responsibilities, test server environments and automated test frameworks.


You will have responsibility for:

  • Working collaboratively as part of a team to deliver high quality products
  • Day to day input on features, user stories and bug through the product life cycle
  • Continuously improvement of quality in the delivery pipeline
  • Working with the team to introduce better tools, processes and techniques



  • To qualify for the role, you must have:
  • A track record of creative software testing and proven technical ability.
  • A desire to extend the reach of testing activities throughout the Agile process.
  • Demonstrable passion for a collaborative testing effort towards qualitative improvement in the product
  • A curiosity for understanding client needs, developer code designs and implementations.
  • Experience in issue-tracking tools, version control, Test Management tools and backend/front end automation technologies
  • Experience in mentoring, on-boarding and coaching less-experienced testers as well as supporting developer-testing
  • Highly organised approach to testing inside an Agile (scrum or Kanban) team, with delegation playing a significant role.


  • Familiarity with SQL and database deployments, in terms of both testing and manipulating via backend.
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Testing Tools
  • Familiarity with automation testing tools
  • Familiarity with products that deal with large data volumes
  • Familiarity with cloud (e.g. AWS)
  • Experience testing web front ends
  • Experience in the retail sector

We are Consulting

Three core competency areas make up our Consulting service line:

  • Technology
  • Strategy & Operations
  • Human Capital

We exist to solve complex problems

Our consultants are renowned for their straightforward approach to solving some of the world's largest and most complex business challenges. With a team of over 3,000, each of us is energised by the challenge a seemingly inscrutable problem presents. Our distinctiveness lies in our refusal to accept a problem at face value - we draw on the depth of our shared insight to ask the right questions, and it's these questions that uncover answers - answers with impact.

We are committed to collaboration

Our role is to unlock potential for growth and innovation. We believe this requires real collaboration – with our own networks and with our clients. It's why we commit to truly getting under the skin of our client's needs, developing a full appreciation for their environment, goals and ambitions. We're also unafraid to challenge. In so doing, we build long-term and trusted affinities.

We create long-term, sustainable impact

We often work hand-in-hand with our clients to help find the right solution and to help apply that solution. Our aim is to leave behind ambassadors who are equipped to continue the transformation we began. For us, it's about embedding sustainable change, allowing the impact of our insight to be felt for a long time to come.

We offer a number of different career pathways

We offer three different career pathways at Deloitte, meaning that there are three different routes by which people can progress in Consulting. We provide variety regarding the career options available to you, assisting you to take career steps that fit your skills, talents and aspirations, and providing an environment where those choices can be discussed in meaningful and constructive career conversations.

The Consulting Career Paths are:

Consulting pathway – pathway based around developing a broad consulting skillset alongside building expertise in a specific domain

Consulting Solutions pathway – pathway where there is greater focus on building skills and deep expertise in a specific domain. Practitioners have a narrow focus, determined by their SME and type of contribution made

Consulting Services pathway – pathway for people whose career is built around the delivery of managed services to clients (either internal or external)
