Intro

What’s the difference between an average QA team and a highly effective one?

Test automation, engineering focused, that’s what.

Although every software development team dreams in a fully automated test environment, test automation is not easy to implement. 

And guess what? We don’t want average quality at FREE NOW.

For this reason, we are currently looking for an outstanding Quality Engineering Lead to build and manage a team of high performing SDET / QA engineers and provide technical mentorship for the implementation of test automation.

 

Your main focus will be to lead the testing process and activities at the same time that you (together with the team) will create and maintain an extensible test automation framework for our products on frontend and backend platforms.

 

Since you will be the representative of the Barcelona Hub in terms of Quality Assurance, we expect you to define the quality metrics and drive these with the engineering teams while you look after creating a quality software development process.

 

We are not going to lie though, you will get your hands dirty as we expect you to write code!

Main requirements

  • A degree in Computer Science or similar.
  • Proven track record of success as a team lead (at least 3 years).
  • Understanding of various testing approaches and practices in order to design the overall testing methodology.
  • Strong hands-on experience in setting up and running automation test on both backend & frontend.

Experience with:

  • OO programming
  • continuous integration and release management
  • code coverage tools to guide test design
  • statistical analysis tools to eliminate code smells
  • testing methodologies, the SDLC and Agile methodologies

Fluent English skills.

Nice to have

Have experience with Atlassian products (Bamboo, Bitbucket, Confluence, Jira).

Are familiar with tools such as:

  • Puppeteer / testCafé
  • MockMvc / RestAssured
  • Grafana / Kibana

    Speak Spanish

Perks

  • Intensive Fridays
  • Gym membership
  • Quarterly team-building activities (karting, bowling, laser tag, escape rooms, barbecues/calçotades…)
  • Yearly off-site hacking weeks
  • Hacking days and occasional trips to our HQ in Hamburg
  • Weekly free buffet breakfasts in the office
  • Health insurance with basic dental coverage
  • 25 days annual leave plus your birthday off
  • A monthly mobility allowance for free taxi rides
  • The opportunity to use the latest technologies and implement your own ideas
  • Flexible learning and development opportunities through internal and external workshops, events and conferences
  • Free language lessons
  • ...and all the usual start-up goodies like free fruit, unlimited drinks, after-work beers and many more!

    Oh, and the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at FREE NOW it’s true)!
