So, what type of tester are we looking for?

  • You’re an experienced software tester who is excited by the challenge of testing software at scale. You’re at home in an Agile environment and your inquisitive nature and desire to dig into the unknown are two of your strengths.

  • You have a deep understanding of various testing approaches, including exploratory testing and automation. You’re also comfortable with your skills and experience in testing the ideas for new features just as much as testing the designs, the code and the software itself, using a risk based mind-set for structuring your testing.

  •  You’ll be comfortable reading and understanding some of these languages and pairing with programmers when they are writing code.

  • You’re interested in applying programming skills yourself and contribute not only from a testing perspective, but also from a developer perspective in pairing sessions.

  • Our programmers are serious about testing too and write their own unit tests as they code. You’ll be a testing specialist in the team, facilitating that testing mind-set during design and story breakdown as well as weighing in on testing strategies and providing guidance and coaching within your agile team and the wider community.

  • You will work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences. The team works very closely, and like to pair on pretty much everything.

  • Our teams decide the right tool for the job, so you should be comfortable doing this too.  We have a lot fun discussing the merits of different technology and we want people who can join and lead these conversations.

  • Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us. Because of this culture, we also like our folks to be great communicators while being open, honest and direct.

  • We value individual contributors on the team and department level greatly, and have a fantastic culture of recognising self-starters.

  • We hope you're getting the idea of what we're looking for. We're looking for great people, with an opinion, and the capability to back it up.

  • You are highly proficient in English, fluency in German is a strong plus.
