YOUR JOB WOULD BE TO


  • Define, plan, implement, and manage QA activities and processes in a transparent and traceable manner,

  • Produce and execute manual and automated test cases that will challenge all assumptions about how users will interact with the product,

  • Provide well-documented bug reports and interact with developers when the issue needs clarification or root cause analysis,

  • Implement robust, highly maintainable, and scalable test automation suites for REST APIs, web and mobile applications,

  • Create CI/CD solutions for test frameworks,

  • Plan, implement and execute performance tests and provide reports,

  • Mentor less experienced colleagues and provide technical leadership,


WE EXPECT


  • At least 5-year experience as a QA engineer working in an agile software development environment (Scrum, Kanban) using tracking tools such as JIRA or Trello,

  • You have some experience as a QA tech lead and you can provide mentorship for less experienced colleagues,

  • Experience using test case management tools (TestRail, XRay, etc),

  • Up to date with Agile testing practices and test automation concepts

  • Hands-on experience in design and implementation of test automation suites using Selenium, Cucumber, and/or Serenity BDD test framework or similar would be an advantage,

  • Skilled in testing web services and creating automation scripts (Postman or using the custom framework),

  • Experience in creating performance tests, possibly JMeter,

  • You are able to adopt domain knowledge as soon as possible so you can challenge new and already developed features,

  • High attention to detail, and appreciation for clean and reusable code,

  • Strong problem-solving skills in general,

  • Good English skills,

  • Experience working with a remote team - because nothing is certain in the post-Covid world,

WE OFFER

  • A competitive, performance-based salary, in the range of 3400 - 4400 BAM/net per month depending on qualifications

  • Work on exciting, market-leading tools and cutting-edge technology

  • A choice of your own work setup (laptop, IDE, OS), and a dedicated budget for setting up individual training plans

  • An office in downtown Sarajevo and flexible home-office arrangements

  • A young international team that meets (hopefully again soon) 3-4 times a year across Europe for fun and work
