Our team in Europe is looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer excited to build, grow and scale our product with us. We need the help of a dedicated, curious and versatile specialist with a passion for performance, and simplicity. Does this sound like you?

As a part of our Quality Assurance team, you'll not only work on improving the company’s products, but also on increasing the calibre over time. This is a long term vision founded on a number of practices — from encouraging individual ownership and deep learning, to congratulating team members when they’ve done a great job. We want to continue to build a talented team of Quality Assurance Engineers who will own their role, work hard to improve themselves and encourage others to do the same.

You'll be working on things like:

    • Performing test scoping, estimation, preparation and execution for application enhancements and bug fixes
    • Debugging, recording and managing defects throughout their lifecycle
    • Analyzing requirements documentation and providing constructive feedback with detailed test estimations 
    • Defining and implementing tools to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of QA inside of the Product team
    • Liaising with product managers, UX designers and developers to accurately understand the systems and produce effective execution plans 
    • Conducting team demos and learning sessions to ensure fluid collaboration and knowledge sharing within the QA and wider development squads
    • Designing, creating, running and maintaining manual and/or automated functional and non-functional tests
    • Contributing to maintain our internal test automation framework and providing regular feedback for continuous improvement
    • Keeping a detailed eye on the feature development process and empowering our teams to adopt a QA mentality

Requirements for the role:

    • Strong web-related technical skills (HTML, JS, Browser debugging)
    • Experience with Git and Unix CLI
    • Experience with API clients like POSTMAN, SOAPUI and JMeter
    • Experience in automation with at least one scripting language (preferably JavaScript)
    • Experience with relational and non-relational databases, confident SQL knowledge
    • Experience in collaborating with technical and non-technical stakeholders whilst taking full ownership of all activities within your scope
    • Ability to work with minimal supervision and commit to the team's schedules and goals

Bonus experience:

    • One of the test automation frameworks (TestCafe/Cypress or others)
    • RESTful services, testing tools (Load / Penetration tests)
    • Applying different testing types across Android and iOS clients
    • Building and monitoring CI/CD pipelines (using TeamCity/Jenkins or other tools)
We know that looking for a new role can be both exciting and time-consuming, and we truly appreciate your effort. Natalia is an actual real live person (👋🏻) and is looking forward to learning more about you and your interest in joining our team.
