Senior QA Engineer

Location: Sofia

Employment Type: Full-time

Your Team

Tide’s mission is to help our members save time (and money) in the running of their businesses, so they can get back to doing what they love. As one team, we act on data to discover, create and deliver what’s best for our members.

About the Tech

Technology and our people is what makes Tide possible. We work in autonomous, cross-functional teams where backend, iOS, Android, web, QA, architects, DevOps, agile coaches, data experts and product owners solve difficult problems together to get the job done. We self-organise and discuss technical challenges and set our own guidelines in the different Community of Practices.

As a Senior QA Engineer at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean, a god-like challenger of the banking world), you will be working in the Quality Assurance – Software Engineering function. We aim to be a catalyst to make Tide Banking as well known for how it uses technology as its brand is known for their banking service.

The department is undergoing extensive change. You will help change how software is built by implementing modern software engineering principals and help create a new culture of delivery excellence and innovation.

About You

We’re an international scale up, we’re busy! If fast paced environments, cross team exposure, inquisitive freedom and the ability to have a real impact on a rapidly growing scale up appeals to you, then you already have the mind of a Tidean. If you have that along with the following experience, we’d love to hear from you.

You will be building mobile/desktop & tablet native apps and websites for our brands. You will have an excellent background in manual testing and QA processes with a strong ethic for ensuring and delivering quality.
We require somebody that thinks like a software engineer and has a passion for testing complex systems, test automation, test-driven development and behaviour-driven development.

  • Enjoy working with talented engineers and can influence system design for reliability, performance and testability
  • Enjoy people interaction and can collaborate with the engineering organisation
  • Comfortable in fast paced, agile and informal environment
  • Curious about emerging technologies and can quickly evaluate and adapt
  • Promote good software engineering practices (e.g. CI/CD, TDD, BDD, performance in design, self-healing solutions)
  • Highly creative, enthusiastic, conscientious, detail oriented self-starter
  • Respond rather than react.

The non-negotiables:

  • BDD, Gherkin, Cucumber
