What will my first technical challenge be at Irdeto?

Irdeto's Conditional Access solution provides the means for our global customers (international TV/Broadcast Operators, Media Content Owners) to protect their premium content from piracy, by securing end-to-end delivery and encryption using both Hardware and Software components.  In this team you will develop, test, deploy and maintain the applications that are currently being used to protect the delivery of content to millions of users across the globe.

The technologies you will be exposed to: Python, Jenkins, SQL, C++, AWS

About the team: You’ll work in a very collaborative scrum team consisting of talented Software Engineers and Software Engineers in Test.

About the day-to-day job: You will communicate directly with Product Owners to refine and adjust challenging requirements and play a key role in splitting the requirements into manageable user stories for yourself and the team. Most of your day will be spent on actual development of automated tests, debugging issues or doing some exploratory testing of new features. As we thrive on writing clean, high quality code, you will regularly be involved in code reviews. You will simultaneously be working closely with the anti-piracy Engineers in our cyber security team (they sit in the same building!) to enable the productive usage of our tooling.

Sounds good! What do I need to bring to the team?

  • An obtained BSc / MSc Degree in Information Technology, Computer Science, or similar field
  • Hands-on experience in software testing and test methodologies (developing test cases, test procedures, automated test scripts and test reports)
  • Solid programming skills (preferably in Python) to build maintainable automation frameworks and test suites
  • Be experienced in working in a continuous integration environment and taking initiative
  • Experience working an agile development environment
  • Some experience in the conditional access domain is a plus
  • Be an advocate for product quality
  • Proficient English communication skills
