What we are looking for

We are looking to add a QA Automation Engineer to create robust automated tests and guide Agile engineering team to archive very fast and wide feedback about committed changes.

Day-to-day, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Planning and implementing automated tests from product requirements and test cases
  • Guiding developers in automated testing
  • Improve automated test, development and delivery solutions

You’re probably keen to hear about our tech stack:

  • AWS is our product’s home, we use following things on a daily basis: Elastic beanstalk, Cloudfront, CloudFormation, Scaling groups, RDS, VPC (subnets, routing, nacl, security groups, ECS, EKS)
  • We’re really enjoying React, Redux and Apollo GraphQL client with ES6 and SCSS. Frontend code is unit-tested using Jest and Enzyme and cleanliness is maintained using latest approaches (ESLint, AirBnB style guide, Prettier). Styling is separated from components and modularised using CSS modules approach with the help of webpack.
  • Our application backend is built on Ruby on Rails.
  • We take full advantage of Postgres with a trigger-based time machine, SQL views, and a willingness to drop from ActiveRecord to raw SQL when it makes sense.
  • Sidekiq, Redis, ElasticSearch and websockets definitely play their parts.
  • For browser tests we are using Cucumber with Ruby, Capybara and SitePrism

And curious about our engineering workflow:

  • Each month we agree to milestones to deliver by the end of the month.
  • We release to production once every two weeks.
  • Jira and Slack help us coordinate across continents and time zones.
  • Gitlab helps us improve each other's code, and our well-tuned linter keeps reviews quick on style and heavy on substance.
  • Our QA team works hard to catch issues, bugs, and cross-browser glitches before we merge a pull request into the mainline, and again before release in the weekly smoke test.
  • Gitlab CI gives us the power to continually improve our automated testing infrastructure.

We'll promise you a great company, good compensation, an ever-improving benefits program and an equity stake in a company with great career advancement opportunities.

About You


  • Minimum 5+ years engineering experience including 3+ years automated testing engineering experience

Knowledge in following things, more - the better:

  • Good coding skills, preferably in Ruby and/or JavaScript or any other modern programming language (e.g. Java, Python, C#, Kotlin, Groovy, Scala)

  • Selenium (Capybara, SitePrism)
  • CI/CD process and server tools knowledge (preferably GitLab-CI)
  • Bash Scripting
  • General skills: Linux/Mac, Git
  • Containerization: Docker/Docker compose, K8s

You’re responsible, skilled, helpful, and kind. You recognize your team relies on you, but you know when to stop working and value the smart solution over the hard one. We’re looking for someone who:

  • Proposes the pragmatic solution to painful problems
  • Finds opportunities to teach others
