Intro

GoKid is the complete carpool solution for schools, teams, and active families allowing families to carpool with others they know and trust.

We have developed an app that makes carpool setup easy and convenient—allowing parents to share driving responsibilities with other families they know and trust. There are no paid drivers. Parents help each other save time by using the excess capacity in their cars. As a smart city solution we are drastically reducing emissions by taking cars off the road. We are working with global corporations, smart cities, OEMs and schools.

We are looking to expand our passionate development team and want to add a skilled QA Engineer who would be responsible for helping to produce test scenarios, creating and executing manual and automated test cases, capturing and reporting defects in Jira, and helping to organize bug fixing content of team sprints. This is a full-time permanent role.

As a member of our team, you will be expected to work with the team but show individual initiative and ownership of your own tasks as well as a high quality of work. You will report directly to the lead developer as well as checking in with the company’s executive team--we are a small team and communication flows freely to all levels of the company.

We are looking for critical thinkers who want to grow with the company and who will productively contribute to discussions around future features and integrations for our mobile-first technology as well as give recommendations for best practices based on previous experience.

We follow Agile methodology and Scrum procedures, operating on 2-week sprints, but as a small team we need each member to be flexible and roll with changes if they come up mid-sprint #startuplife.

Our team participates in daily standup calls on Slack as well as bi-weekly sprint planning and demo calls. While we are headquartered in New York City, we are looking to build out a team in Europe. Currently the tech team works as a remote team, regular and good communication is a must :)

  • Working knowledge of Javascript
  • Working knowledge of browser debugging tools
  • In-depth understanding of Web stacks
  • Experience in automation testing

  • Fluent English speaker and a good communicator.

Nice to have

  • If you have various Android and iOS testing devices you can bring to the job, that is a big plus
  • Technical degree and previous work in a startup company is a big plus
  • We are looking to fill this role in Porto, Portugal, but are open to remote team members as well.
