QA Tester

Do you have a knack for finding bugs and translating those into useful and understandable reports that further both the team and the product?

FULL-TIME / PART-TIME · GRONINGEN

We are looking for an experienced quality assurance tester to strengthen our mobile and web app teams. You will work with our different development teams to test the different parts of our VoIP telephony platform, VoIPGRID. This includes the Android and iOS versions of our mobile app, our Webphone, and our web application. You will work in sync with our other QA tester and the team and join their workflow which involves sprint planning and retrospectives. Your input will contribute to the overall quality of the products.

Our ideal colleague is analytical and detail minded. You explain not only what needs to be fixed, but why to fix it. You are willing to stand your ground about issues and changes, but also take feedback and work with everyone to do what is best for the product and its users. You have experience working as part of a multidisciplinary team and know what each different role within that team is expecting from you as a QA tester.

Your professional profile

You:

  • Have a formal education or a good deal of experience in testing

  • Have excellent English skills. If you speak Dutch, that’s awesome, but English is a requirement to work in these teams.
  • Are experienced in web application and/or mobile testing
  • Have experience in test reporting
  • Write strong and understandable bug reports
  • Have excellent communication skills

Bonus points if you: 

  • Have experience with (VoIP) telephony
  • Are an experienced project management tool-user. We use Jira and GitLab
  • Know your way around CI tools like Jenkins or GitLab CI
  • Understand the ecosystem and workflow of software development
  • Have an interest in test automation tools

About Spindle

With almost 60 colleagues, we develop the tools that make this possible such as VoIPGRID our award winning telefony platform. Alongside that we develop an app (both Android and iOS versions), Webphone, and a browser plugin which allow you to use the VoIP platform wherever you are.

Working at Spindle

If you look around the office, you’ll notice we do things a bit different around here:

  • We organize ourselves using a system called Holacracy. We believe every colleague is able to contribute to the organization rather than relying on a traditional hierarchy. Having no managers comes with extra responsibility to take ownership of your work and set priorities that help to further the organization.
  • We work with a “build, measure, learn” mentality and open mindset. We recognize that not everything you do is going to work right away. We praise experimentation and reward trying something new, even if the lesson is to not try it again.
  • We have an open and transparent salary system. Every colleague is placed in the pathway and a level best fitting their education, experience, and visible behavior. We encourage growth and have clear guidelines and expectations for doing so.
  • We are a diverse and inclusive team of international coworkers. We value the differences that each person brings to the table and think that it's those differences that strengthen our organization. 

What we offer

  • A relaxed and welcoming culture with celebrations, events, and trips

  • A competitive salary and good pension benefits
  • An annual study budget and study days for personal and professional growth
  • Two weeks leave when welcoming a new member to the family
  • Other benefits that contribute to your health, well-being, and work/life balance
