Quality is everyone’s duty, but for some it’s also their job.
Who we are
A growing team of technical determined people who believe in delivering valuable web & mobile apps. We grow products that range from desktop, mobile, native to big data solutions, with an accent on enterprise and customer-facing platforms. We’re passionate about understanding data in every form, thus a very significant amount of our craft is machine learning based.
We target a continuous deployment process, constantly striving to improve our code quality, test coverage and choosing the best stack for the job.
Sparktech Software is a comfortable and unconventional workplace well known for its vast alternatives to experiment some of the newest technologies. We provide meaningful and engaging work and support free exchange of ideas. It’s the proper environment to take on new challenges and discover continuous learning opportunities in your everyday activity.
Our flat organization is focused on close collaboration, growth and product quality within a creative and fresh atmosphere. We rely on flexible working hours as a means to support a healthy work-life balance. You will work alongside dedicated and innovative engineers and designers to define the future of web solutions. You’ll have the chance to add your own voice, your particular spice to the mix.
What you’re going to do
Perform QA activities within Scrum teams
Design, develop and execute test plan and test cases, covering functional, integration, system, usability, performance and regression testing
Record and document results and compare to expected results; prioritise anomalies and issues; retest bug fixes
Develop and maintain test automation scripts to support functional aspects of the software, ensuring product quality, while successfully minimizing manual testing and leading to more effective test coverage
Maintain and update an automated tests suite, with periodical execution on a Continuous Integration server.
Become a user expert on how the products work and understand customers and users’ needs
Participate in the iteration planning and team standup meetings
Who we’re looking for
We think it’s essential to have a continuous drive for self improvement and self motivation. Instead of opposing change, we count on you reshaping your mindset to accommodate the new in your daily craft. Your initiative and accountability will open doors much faster and we trust you’ll do your best in being productive and efficient.
Your positive and team oriented attitude will support you in working well with your colleagues. Good communication skills will help you create stronger connections. The secret ingredient to succeed in a rapidly expanding environment is to be highly organized and able to balance multiple simultaneous projects. Whatever the (technical) problem, utilize your skills to be part of the solution.
The difference between something good and something great will be your extreme attention to detail and the consistency of your work. Performing independently, with little supervision, will unlock more of your creativity to encourage you to reach your potential. Your passion towards quality assurance will fuel your inspiration to come up with original ideas on how to get things done. All these will make a major impact on your results.
