Job requirements

What Will I Be Doing?

As a member of the Quality Assurance team you will:

  • Daily communicate with software and product developers, system administrators and stakeholders in order to identify testing requirements.
  • Participate in the software development life cycle and provide QA-related feedback.Keep track of quality assurance metrics and know when to raise a red flag.
  • Propose and implement detailed, meaningful and maintainable test suites for automated smoke, integration and end-to-end testing.
  • Most importantly, spread the QA culture and train internal teams to use the test suites that you help create.

What skills do I need?

  • You will need to have some experience with automated web testing. We expect that you will be familiar with Selenium, TestNG and Jenkins. You will also need to have working knowledge of Java. A solid understanding of core web technologies (HTML, Javascript and HTTP) will also be required.
  • We are in the process of automating the testing of our mobile applications, so you'll have to be able to pick up new tools like BrowserStack and Appium.

  • Greek candidates need to have fulfilled military obligations and ability to communicate in Greek and English (verbal & written form, business proficiency).

Where will I be working?

We used to work in our Athens HQ until COVID-19 happened. While the epidemic is still unfolding, we accomplish most of our work remotely but it is important to have conditions that allow it (a quite place to work at and an internet connection allowing remote meets with camera). For engineers at least, it seems that remote work is here to stay. When the pandemic passes, engineers outside Athens will be working fully remotely while engineers near the home office in Athens may meet up in the HQ a few times per week.

What happens when I apply?

The first step in our hiring process is to review your CV. If you seem to be qualified for this position, we will be having a quick phone call with you to welcome you to the process and we will give you a take home code challenge to work on your own time. Once you submit the response to the code challenge, we will have an online interview via Google Meet. The interview time is focused on cultural fit and technical discussion that will make heavy use of your response to the code challenge. The final step is to have a quick discussion to make a proposal.
