About the role?
This is a great opportunity to use your current skills and develop new ones while working on a product that really matters. The role is remote first and our team made a successful transition to being fully remote in 2020. You will be working closely with product, tech and business colleagues to define and implement improvements to our test strategy and QA processes. You’ll be experienced in setting up and maintaining testing suites for frontend and backend code, which will be a major part of the role. But you’ll also be able to judge what not to automate, and be expert at defining and executing effective manual testing. Above all, you’ll champion quality across our team processes so we can deliver great experiences to our users.
Our Technology and Team Culture
We like to move fast and release in small increments frequently, deploying our code in Docker containers to our Terraform managed AWS infrastructure. We use the functional programming language Clojure heavily on the backend, and our frontend stack is built in React, Redux and Next.js. As a team we really value giving enough time for developers to tackle bug-fixes, refactoring and other technical optimisations, which we do by alternating product feature sprints with maintenance periods, to ensure the long-term technical health of our codebase.
We are a small team, where every person counts - you'll be able to see your work having an impact immediately. We have a healthy working culture that values autonomy and creativity. You’ll need to be a team-player: collaborative in the way you work and supportive of the people you work with - and you’ll find us very supportive of you and your professional development too.
We also genuinely care about diversity. We have a roughly 50/50 male/female split across the team (including in technical roles), and welcome applications from people of other genders, and from other groups underrepresented in tech, too.
3 years plus professional experience in a QA Engineer or Software Tester role, with demonstrable experience and advanced skills with test automation.
Strong communication skills, both written and spoken.
Strong practical knowledge of Agile, Scrum, BDD/TDD and CI/CD.
Able to take a lead role in release management and work closely with developers to drive quality across the CI/CD pipeline.
