Senior Software Engineer in Test

Req ID:  22416

Hoofddorp, NL

Category:  Software Engineering / Development

Irdeto's Media Manager team works on the product that automates the content preparation process for pay-TV operators. It reduces the content publishing time by minimizing the amount of manual work needed in the process. This means that operators’ time to market is significantly improved. And due to its flexible design, Irdeto Media Manager is easily integrated with existing back office systems allowing operators to optimize their operational costs.


As a Senior Software Engineer in Test, you will be involved in the complete software test cycle (design test plans, prepare and execute automated test cases and document results). When there is no prior created test automation framework you will be using your programming skills to create it from scratch. The types of tests you will be performing are integration, functional and non-functional and will generally be performed at component level. Spotted a bug in the code? You’ll help with analyzing and debugging the code. Any reported issues from the field will also require your expertise to solve. Being part of our scrum team means you will be involved with estimation and planning. As we advocate clean code, you will be refactoring and looking to continuously improve the test automation code.


The product you will be working on is one of the most complex but probably the most interesting to work on at Irdeto. It is a framework which is meant to integrate with all core backend components of a Telco or an OTT operator: from orchestration around video and metadata pipelines to content protection and content distribution. Technology-wise Media Manager is in the phase of migrating to a DevOps development paradigm and the use of cutting-edge technologies.


You’ll work in a dynamic, multinational, collaborative and self-managed Agile team consisting of Software Engineers and Software Engineers in Test.
