In this role, you’ll be instrumental in driving our software quality assurance lifecycle, working closely with QA and Software Engineers within our development team to establish test strategies, and developing automated tests to ensure our releases meet the highest standards.

The day-to-day job: 👩‍💻

  • Provide software quality assurance lifecycle within our Agile process
  • Design and implement new test plans and test cases for automated scripts
  • Develop and execute automated functional and UI tests
  • Enhance and maintain automated CI flows
  • Troubleshoot issues in systems under test
  • Work well under low supervision, initiate and progress various activities in an independent manner and as part of a group effort

Why this role may excite you: 🎊

  • We are a globally dispersed team of Vablers - currently a team of 26 and growing - 50% in Engineering and 50% across People & Operations/ Sales & Marketing / Customer Success
  • We are a fully remote and a close-knit team. Communicating and checking in is our thing
  • Our CEO Matthew is based in Germany, our Head of Revenue Emily is in Atlanta (USA), our Head of People & Ops Sarah is in Northern Ireland and our Engineering Team is in the Ukraine. See we are dispersed! Most of our Vablers work throughout Europe 🌍
  • We have a great team of Vablers, who would be your work colleagues
  • We are profitable and have a proven business with an established client base of global law firms and professional organisations

To be successful in this role, your values matter just as much as your skills. Does this sound like you?

Why work for Vable?

  • We have a culture that we protect, we value the contributions each Vabler makes
  • We encourage constant learning so you can keep up to date. A yearly budget of $300

Why it may not be for you.

  • We are a 40 hour week, Mon-Fri and have core hours, unless stated otherwise or agreed. Being a small remote team, it's how we operate
  • We have various meetings per week and people are expected to attend and contribute
  • Everyone has the opportunity to query, ask questions, have new ideas and we will give you our opinion. We operate on continuous feedback and recognition, this isn’t for everyone and if this makes you uncomfortable or it’s not your thing, probably not a good fit for either of us.
  • We have set behaviours and values that every Vabler is expected to adhere
  • It’s a busy varied role and may have times that you will be required to work outside of working hours to accommodate cover

  1. Intro Call: You will carry out an intro call with our recruiter in the Ukraine
  2. Interview: If after the intro call, we’re both excited to proceed, you will be invited to a second stage interview with Zhanna, Head of Technology and perhaps another applicable Manager. This stage may include a technical task before or after the interview.
