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 mytaxi.

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 mobile and back-end 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!

Sounds interesting? Keep reading because we have even more :)

mytaxi encourages a strong team spirit and simple company culture. Our teams organize themselves in established agile working environments. People at mytaxi work flexibly and independently. Every single employee is a part of our success story and so, open communication and a fair feedback culture come naturally to us.

We are passionate problem-solvers who listen and understand before we act. By working together – with each other, customers, drivers and cities - we make things better. Besides a lot of fun and potential to make a real difference, you will have the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at mytaxi it’s true)!
