    QA
    6 days ago

    Frontastic is looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer (f/m/*) as either part-time or full-time position. We are a remote-first company currently operating in the Europe/Berlin timezone.

    Locations in or close to Germany are preferred to make our regular in-person meetings easier.

    As our first dedicated quality assurance engineer you will have the opportunity to be a major influence on our product quality assurance strategy and bring a balance of opinion to our team.

    This is not a junior position, but if you are experienced and ship proven work on your own, this position is for you. You can set new standards in the eCommerce experience: You develop our progressive web application platform with innovative UI components, build and integrate standards for others to develop their eCommerce projects on top of your work.

    THIS MEANS

    • Writing end-to-end tests and verifying the user experience of our Software as a Service application – whatever technology (Cypress, Selenium, Headless Chrome, …) this involves.

    • Author at least semi automated tests, or even fully automated tests if the testing solution enables stable tests.

    • Help developers to verify that tickets or stories are complete and are consistent with the overall user experience

    • Coordinate testing infrastructure: Ensure testing environments are ready together with operations or work locally using GIT, vagrant and docker or Virtualbox

    • Experience with visual testing of web applications would be a bonus

    YOU BRING:

    You bring experience in testing complex web applications involving multiple backend services. You are a proficient speaker and writer of English – additional languages are always helpful. You have already gained experience in IT companies and can structure requirements and challenges, communicate and implement them in a targeted manner.

    You are motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your workday accordingly.


    THAT’S WHAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL:

    • You would describe yourself more as a generalist than a specialist in your field

    • You are highly motivated, committed to improving existing skills and like to learn new skills during working hours

    • You have a completed education and at least 3 to 5 years of professional experience as a quality assurance engineer or in a comparable field.

    • Knowledge of your toolbox used for testing

    • You are able and willing to prefer written communication to make well structured information readily available to everyone and follow established communication patterns

    WHAT WE OFFER:

    As our colleague you have the flexibility to choose your own working hours throughout the day to incorporate this job into your life-work balance. Our work week has 40 hours maximum and overtime is the exception. No vacation days are necessary to run errands, and there is certainly no need to wait until after work to take care of a family emergency.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. If we receive job applications from yet underrepresented groups those applications will be preferred.

    For this particular job we are offering to pay between 30.000 € to 65.000 € based on experience and skills.

    OUR GUIDELINES:

    • A culture of owning your code from design & development to deployment and monitoring, which is sometimes called DevOps.

    • We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of your peers.

    • We use practices like pair programming, mob programming, test driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical dept low.

    • We are a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like Email, Trello, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.

    HOW-TO APPLY

    If this job sounds interesting to you, please send a letter of motivation, CV and your earliest possible starting date to [email protected]. Do you still have a question? Do not hesitate to get in contact via mail!
