Overview

We’re looking for our first QA Engineer to make our product better, drawing on user empathy to design automated and manual testing that breaks as much as is possible and challenges us to consistently improve. The ideal candidate is creative and aggressive in finding and communicating when our (very high) standards are not met. Your role will be to help ensure our customers have an excellent experience every time they use Amplified.

This is an opportunity to engage with cutting-edge technology and work on a real-world problem at global scale. In addition to competitive compensation and benefits there is also room for the right person to take on increased responsibilities. And it’s a lot of fun (although fast-paced and even chaotic at times) working as part of a small, dynamic team.

Responsibilities:

  • Understand, review, and help develop specifications and technical design documents in order to provide feedback and contextualise deficiencies
  • Create comprehensive test plans and test cases
  • Estimate, prioritize, plan and coordinate testing activities
  • Identify, record, document thoroughly and track bugs
  • Document and carry out manual testing
  • Design, develop and execute automated testing so we find bugs before our users do
  • Advise on testing practice with the broader engineering team
  • Investigate the causes of non-conforming software and effectively communicate reports for triage
  • Track quality assurance metrics, such as defect densities, open defect counts, and where defects are found in the product cycle

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Experience in software quality assurance
  • Experience in software development
  • Up to date knowledge of automated testing
  • Technical skills, including data analysis, necessary to identify and triage deficiencies
  • Familiarity with automated browser-based testing
  • Experience with building and utilising test environments
  • A sense of ownership and pride in your performance and its impact on the company’s success
  • Ability to thrive in a remote-first team
