QA Engineer at Tessian
London, GB
We're looking for QA Engineers to join our QA and Testing function, creating and performing tests on all aspects of the Tessian platform as well as assisting with designing and running our testing practices and feeding into product development discussions. Your role will be very hands-on, primarily working on our Microsoft Outlook add-in and our frontend.
You'll get to work on a lot of varied testing which will include testing our external APIs, frontend dashboard, Outlook add-ins and email gateway, as well as integrating closely with engineering teams, providing feedback and contributing towards product decisions.
Our agnostic approach to problem solving means we favour hiring engineers who pride themselves on the ability to learn new skills, their comfort with the unknown and their willingness to experiment. At Tessian you’ll be growing your skill-set on an ongoing basis; regular and continuous development is something we believe in and as an employee we will seek to create opportunities for you to evolve.
We build quickly and follow both agile and continuous delivery paradigms and you will have autonomy to work on your projects, and be part of our regular round tables to bounce ideas around as a team on how to tackle our biggest challenges.

  • Has good knowledge of programming languages, infrastructure and frameworks
