A little flex time
Currencycloud is somewhere where innovative thinking and the power of technology know no limits. We know that the success of the business depends on the people who keep it moving, which is why we are looking for exceptional talent to join our international payments revolution.
We are an open & collaborative Fintech unicorn that lives and breathes our company values:
Be Human, Better Together and Own it.
It’s a key topic at the moment, we have addressed this by implementing a “Remote-First” policy. What this ultimately means is you have the choice as to whether you Work Fully Remotely, or visit the lush offices in London, Cardiff or Amsterdam; it’s up to you!
About the role...
We’re looking for a number of experienced, motivated and talented QA Automation Engineers and Senior Automation QA Engineers to help us build the technology that will power the future of payments.
The Senior QA Engineer role is an ambassador of quality. You should strive to ensure that we are maintaining a high level of quality across all our processes.

This process involves planning sessions with the engineering team and discussions around designing the solution. We are a team who are always looking for ways to improve our process, and your experience and curiosity will help us do that. Part of the role involves demoing new features and functionality to stakeholders.
- Participating in agile ceremonies such as standup, backlog grooming etc., working closely with developers and operations on testing new features and upgrades within the team product area and maintaining existing, building new and adding to automation frameworks to improve test coverage

We are a remote-first company; whichever location you’re contracted to, we leave it up to you and your manager to agree on how often you come into the office. To make things easier we offer an allowance so you can create your own working space at home because we REALLY mean it when we say remote first.
Your health and well-being are of paramount importance to us, and so our jampacked employee benefits reflect this!
We offer a competitive salary, an individual learning and development budget, a pension or 401K contribution, mental health days and comprehensive health care that includes annual optical and dental allowances, access to mental health support and a monthly allowance that you can spend on anything health or wellness related!
