  • Having a good mental image of seemingly unrelated areas a to-be-released feature could potentially disrupt
  • Communicating issues efficiently to developers
  • Working closely with developers to ensure error-free code
  • Working with the development team to create automated processes that further increase code quality

Requirements:

  • At least 1 of year manual testing experience
  • The ability to go into minute detail when testing features
  • The ability to identify edge cases
  • Previous experience testing web-based projects
  • Web fluency and knowledge of project management tools
  • Great interpersonal and communications skills

Bonus points:

  • JIRA
  • Github

Benefits:

  • Opportunity to work in a dynamically growing international company where what you do has a direct and immediate impact
  • Fully remote culture with a globally distributed, international team
  • We offer a flexible and relaxed working environment where everyone can work in peace
  • We do not have any investors and we do not work directly with clients. This means we rarely have any deadlines and even when we do, they are mostly for internal planning purposes. We have the luxury of thinking features through and implementing them correctly instead of quickly
  • In order to ensure that everyone has time to rest and recharge, we offer Flexible paid time off
