Job Description

We have some ambitious, technically complex projects, and we need someone who will not just test what the devs throw at them, but take responsibility for product quality. This is a hands-on role, writing and doing your own testing, but will also include arranging contracts with external test labs and other test contractors.This is an excellent opportunity for a QA person looking to work on different technologies, across different teams and with real users. This person should be a hungry, ingenious engineer with an intuition how combined software changes can break functionalities that may have been missed in dev testing and a creative mind that enjoys finding novel ways of breaking software that can outdo a kid's unexpected use of our products.

As part of an Agile team, you will have the chance to work in very fast iterations and across teams, making your work very dynamic and challenging. In the run up to production, additional hours are likely to be required. You will work on managing QA within the company, organising additional individuals and test companies, and producing reports for the project team and CEO. We are looking for a QA engineer who has no problems getting their hands dirty with new technology and challenges.

REQUIREMENTSQUALIFICATIONS AND SKILLSIdeal candidates will have at least two years of QA experience in a commercial environment.
