Job Scope

Our partner is currently changing its approach to Quality -  from its current Quality Assurance (closer to Quality Control) with a big focus on manual testing - to Quality Engineering, with a shift in the Quality activities left, making Quality the responsibility of the whole team and much more attention given to test automation. 

We are looking for a Quality Engineer to join their team and become a Quality role model that will help build a Quality Engineering function within the organization. You will bring your Quality knowledge and experience to ensure the quality activities are successfully done by the team, as early as possible, with a significant focus on the prevention of bugs so that the best system is built as the desired outcome.

The structure in Quality Engineering: 

Head of Quality Engineering directly reports to the CTO and leads the Quality Coaches towards implementation of the Quality vision. We have Quality Engineers inside each team, they are reporting to Quality Coaches, which are supporting multiple teams each. 

The focus is on empowering teams to deliver software with built-in Quality at high speed, not dictating or doing top to bottom decisions, instead, we provide all of the required knowledge, data, and instruments to achieve the desired level of Quality.

Main Responsibilities

  • Make sure that the team is aware of real product quality and its customer experience impact. 
  • Be aware of business priorities and use this knowledge during Test Planning and discussions.

  • Ensure that all components have a clear Test Strategy and everyone on the team onboard with it.
  • Make sure that all deliverables have the desired level of Quality and clear testing evidence.
  • Ensure that Root Cause Analysis and Escaped Defect Analysis was done for bugs & incidents.
  • Focus more on Quality Management and less on Testing.
  • Manage Quality related tech debt items in the backlog of the team.
  • Ensure that test cases are properly organized and up-to-date.
  • Ensure that Monitoring & Alerts are in place, up-to-date and continuously reviewed.
  • Make sure that Quality Engineering Metrics are collected, continuously reviewed and acted upon.
  • Do Pair Testing, a lot.
  • Make sure that even after going on vacation for 1 month, the team can continue delivering with close to the same speed.

Key Requirements

  • 4+ years of experience in Quality Engineering roles.
  • Experience ensuring Quality of Mobile applications as well as Backend services.
  • Previous experience in doing both UI and Backend Test Automation. 
  • Involvement in Test Automation Framework from scratch is a plus.

  • Excellent understanding of CI/CD patterns and good practices, with focus around Quality aspects.
  • Experience in working with microservices architecture.
  • Experience working with close collaboration with Software Engineers and Product Owners with focus on enabling the whole team to deliver quality software and not trying to be bottleneck in any Quality question.
  • Experience with working in Agile (Scrum or Kanban) and understanding of how to set proper Quality processes within such teams.
  • Strong focus on data-driven decision making.
  • Autonomy and proactivity skills.
  • Ability to communicate both written and spoken in English.
