QA and Test Automation Engineer

Belgium, Vlaams Gewest, GhentEngineering

Job description

To ensure we deliver on the quality we expect from ourselves, we're looking for an expert in this matter. Someone with a few years of experience, who has a strong functional interest and also wants to automate the quality assurance.

This role is comprised of 2 parts: quality assurance and test automation.

As part of the engineering team (we're currently with 12) you'll be making sure we have a test plan, you'll ensure acceptance criteria are well defined and that those are tested automatically as much as possible. You will be the first dedicated test engineer and will be the driving force behind this. We'll give you a lot of autonomy in defining the best approach to reach our goals. You are in control of how to embed testing within the development (eg CI pipeline) and delivery flow.

We're based in Ghent and would love for you to come to the office at least once or twice per week (post-Corona).

This means that for this job we're not accepting candidates outside of Belgium
