QA Test Automation Engineer

Job description

Vandebron is a scale-up in the energy world, with a mission to transform the energy market, starting with 100% green and local energy in the Netherlands. We are doing so by using state of the art technology that helps us distinguish ourselves from other utility providers. We want to improve our quality assurance processes and move towards the next steps that include automation of end-to-end tests. Our (digital) product team is therefore looking for a motivated test automation engineer to join us.

In this role you manage all the activities of Quality Assurance and are opinionated about how the software testing profession should be organized. You will have a hands-on mentality that makes you an allround test engineer. While your activities can sometimes be very hands-on (manual testing) your true passion enables you to limit repetitive work as much as possible. You do this by (mostly) using our test framework Cypress that can help you automate things like test data generation, integration tests and end-to-end tests. Meanwhile you don’t forget to embed these activities into the core processes of QA (unit test agreements, test case management, etc.). This way you will help the rest of the team (developers and product owner) to take part in the test procedures to make sure Quality is a real team effort!

What does the job entail?

  • You draft and implement quality assurance policies and procedures together with your QA team.
  • You manually execute (and automate as much as possible) the functional (regression) tests to help us maintain our fast release schedule.
  • You are responsible for designing, creating and maintaining our test automation framework Cypress and related (chosen) technologies.
  • You work together with various scrum-teams to make sure that relevant scenarios and test-cases are covered and releases are done with minimal uncertainty (by using good/fast QA processes).
  • You help the scrum team to reach the next levels of QA by continuously grasping opportunities for improvement.

Job requirements

What is your profile?

  • You are motivated to work in the field of Quality Assurance to help Vandebron further disrupt the energy market.
  • You have 2-3 years of experience with QA. 
  • You have previous experience in the profession of QA in other companies and industries and understand the new era that includes a high level of automation.
  • You have at least some experience with both UI automation and API automation, as well as extensive experience with manual functional testing.
  • Although you have your preferences, you are somewhat ‘technology independent’ and confident you can build your expertise on different stacks (react, salesforce, scala, etc.).
  • You are a proactive, results-oriented person who is eager to learn to achieve tasks independently.
  • You have strong written, verbal and presentation skills with an ability to communicate clearly and effectively at all levels within the organization.
  • You are a teamplayer with a positive attitude and flexible in dealing with change.

What do we offer?

  • The experience of contributing to changing the world for the better.
  • An ambitious, innovative, and fun work environment.
  • Room for your own initiative.
  • Salary in conformity with the market.
  • Daily fresh organic lunches (if possible again).
  • An office in the heart of Amsterdam (if possible again).
  • Friday drinks, company and team building events (if possible again).
  • A discount on your Vandebron energy contract.
