Junior QA Engineer


Edinburgh, Scotland. United Kingdom

Arc-net is looking for a talented Junior QA Engineer to join our growing development team in the centre of Edinburgh.

Who we are

Supply chains have become global and are constantly growing in complexity. At the same time, consumers are demanding greater transparency into the products that they purchase while trust in producers is gradually eroded by product recalls and scandals.

Arc-net is a new tech start-up based in Edinburgh, the beautiful capital in the heart of Scotland. We are building a platform to track products as they pass through these elaborate supply chains and we need you to help us build the tools to support and visualise that data for our customers and their consumers. Arc-net’s platform is grounded by blockchain, the technology that underpins Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The distributed and essentially immutable nature of blockchain allows arc-net to offer end consumers a level of trust in their products that has been previously unavailable.

What we need

To achieve Arc-net’s goal of delivering these services to our customers we need a passionate and committed Junior QA Engineer who will work closely with the whole Engineering team to ensure the delivery of quality software, faster. You will carry out your duties under the direction of the QA Manager, performing tasks such as exploratory testing, managing defects and writing automated tests.

  • You are able to cope with changing priorities and assist where the business needs you to
  • You are comfortable with functional black-box testing and have the curiosity to go beyond this to ensure software is tested thoroughly
