We’re looking for a talented junior test engineer to join our cloud-based services test team.

The company

RealVNC® is a highly successful software company based in Cambridge (UK) city centre. As the original developers of VNC® remote access technology our software is used by hundreds of millions of users worldwide from the non-technical home user to IT professionals from global companies, such as Intel, IBM, NASA, Shell, DreamWorks and Philips.

The role

Our products allow people to remotely access computers simply and securely, and are supported by a number of business critical web applications.  To help keep things running smoothly we’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic computing graduate keen to begin a career in software testing.  You’ll be given the training and mentoring you need, and have the opportunity to contribute to our flagship VNC product line and our SDKs which allow other developers to embed VNC technology into their own applications.

Embedded within one of our development teams and working alongside experienced test engineers, you'll be involved in all aspects of testing from requirements analysis to regression testing.  You will gain exposure to a variety of manual and automated testing tools and techniques, and will be involved in maintaining and updating our suite of Selenium regression tests and the framework which powers them.

We like to think we have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We value the input of everyone working on the project, and talented individuals can make a big difference. In exchange we expect you to be highly motivated, willing to explore novel solutions, and have a strong desire to build your knowledge and skillset.


  • are either a recent computing graduate or have up to a years’ experience in a testing position, keen to begin a career in software testing
  • have a passion for technology and the ability to pick things up quickly
  • have an understanding of:
  • Networking technologies (e.g. IP addresses, DNS, DHCP, TCP/IP, UDP)
  • Web technologies (e.g. HTTP, TLS/SSL, REST)
  • are comfortable programming in Python, Java or a similar language
  • are familiar with operating systems other than Windows, e.g. Mac OS X, Linux, or other UNIX
  • are able to communicate technical ideas clearly, with excellent written and spoken English


This role offers a unique opportunity to join our Testing team, working for a successful, growing company with a recognised global brand and huge potential and vision. If you’re successful, you’ll be compensated with an attractive package which will be appropriate to your skills and experience. We also offer generous benefits, including a contributory pension, childcare vouchers, and private dental and medical care.
