We are looking for a Senior QA Engineer to join our team of skilled software engineers.

Our clients software, already a leader in their field, allows their clients to use all their data to optimize all aspects of their business with a strong focus on regulatory compliance.

Their platform ( that’s right…its already working with clients around the globe ) processes data (structured and unstructured) via leading edge complex Machine Learning algorithms, risk-scoring logic and easy to comprehend visual solutions of complex data structures. While what we have is very powerful, we are just getting started…so there need more people who breath excellence to join our team.


***Here is a bit more about the role : *

Most of our clients work in financial services, investment and hedge funds, capital markets and have tons of data. Getting all of that data ( every last bit and byte ) stored take a lot powerful engineering…that’s where we step up …and do the heavy lifting….to make that sense of that data….

Our product is a powerful tool that can be used to help the clients to work their way through millions of data items by means of searching, filtering and visualising of relationships between entities in the system. We've even built our own IDE inside it!



Here is a bit more about the role :
•Become a power user of the system, develop a deep understanding of its analytics tools, their capabilities and limitations;
•Work on improvement of QA processes, provide valuable feedback to other team members as to areas of the product that we should focus on;
•Participate in planning sessions, design and develop test suites to cover new and existing functionality;
•Accomplish frequent feature releases. We can release new functionality several times in a day;
•Pursue both breadth and depth in terms of test coverage of the product. We use automated test coverage calculation for manual test suites as release criteria;
•Support and develop complex test data runs for 60+ supported data types.

About you

•You're passionate about engineering and have a proven track record of delivering great software;
•It's not someone else's job to make sure that your code works and is readable and tested - you take full responsibility for the quality of your work;

*** Here is how we do things internally *

•We are all about commitment and results, not the time you spend in the office. So, while our working hours are flexible the intensity, as you would expect from financial services clients, is as high-paced as it gets.
•Small dynamic feature teams with short development cycles and dedicated deadlines. There is no “corporate” hierarchy and you can promote your own ideas just from day 1. We love competition.
•We’re serious about testing. Code review practices and release criteria include targets for test coverage, platform capacity, performance.
•Advanced Cloud DevOps platform that allows building necessary cluster configuration through just UI.
•Canary releases with continuous delivery to all clients. No version fragmentation in production.
