Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

We are looking for a Junior up to Mid/Senior Software Engineer in QA Automation to play pivotal roles in our fast track growth. We promise you the freedom and space you need to be creative, show off your skills, and grow your expertise.

You’ll be surrounded by like-minded geeks who think out of the box and obsess about solving problems for clients and within our products. We’ll teach you to work with Gauge, an attractive cross-platform automation tool, and Kotlin programming language.

You will be responsible for automating executable specifications of our products. We are targeting continuous delivery of new features and changes to our existing systems alike and developing well engineered tests and automation scripts are a key component of this endeavor. Success in this role will be achieved by creating and maintaining code that will power the executable specifications, and other related scripts in a web app based environment. You participate in daily stand-ups, collaborative specification ceremonies for new features and products that are on the table, and other occasional team ceremonies.

If you prefer to work with real life proven approaches (inspired by Specification by Example, Living Documentation) over cumbersome methodologies, then you are at the right place.

We’ll address your career aspirations:
• This is an excellent opportunity for all developers to broaden their skill set and sharpen their coding practices.
• You’ll have several future career opportunities. You either decide to continue within QA Automation Engineering or move on to Software development. We’ll give you the tools, trainings and freedom to design your own career path.

Your role
• Take ownership of the specification automation planning, development, and execution for implementations on a small to medium scale.
• Maintain in-depth knowledge of testable products.
• Assist in determining severity of any issues found and ability communicate said information to stakeholders.
• Determine the root cause of issues, resolve testing issues, and drive issues to closure.
• Participate in specification and tech meetings with business & technology teams.
