Senior QA Specialist

We are looking for a leading QA force to our tech team to work as a Senior QA Specialist! In this role we hope that you are a hands-on leader with an ability to coach your team. In addition to working with our quality related matters, with the right person there might be an opportunity to lead other testers and all Smarp's testing activities.

We are looking for a senior person but who's still very actively doing hands-on testing in modern/agile environment. As we have a very small team, the majority of the work is still going to be hands-on work and not managing other's work. The needs of our tech team changes and the prioritization of skills for this role also varies depending on the other people joining the team and the skills they are bringing with them. But if you feel that you are the missing piece from our team, we are happy to receive your application!

What you will be doing:

  • Preparing test plans, scenarios, and test cases for each sprint

  • Executing test scripts and creating test execution reports

  • Conducting manual tests

  • Looking for automation possibilities and implementing test automation scripts

  • Providing feedback to our developers and work with them to resolve the identified defects

  • Perform exploratory testing

  • Create and improve QA procedures (environment to test, cross-browser etc.)

  • Find appropriate tools / services for testing purposes (mobile devices testing etc.)

  • Liaise with support team / contribute to improving web development cycle

  • Possibly overseeing other testers (external/internal)

Which skills and knowledge will help you to perform well:

  • Senior level experience on preferably multiple different QA roles

  • The key word is test automation so hopefully you are experienced with at least one of these: Robot framework, jMeter, Appium library

  • At least some ability to read code (for instance with Python) and a great eye for it to give constructive feedback to our developers based on your test results

  • Smart with different QA tools and constantly eager to find out new ways of testing

  • Able to automate any repetitive test cases (using Java, Python, JavaScript, etc.)

  • Some team leading experience

  • If you happen to be a Scrum Master, please mention that in your application
