Are you a Software Engineer in Test?
It doesn’t matter whether your background is development or testing. It matters if you have a quality mindset that you love to share with others. In this role, the emphasis is on the technology side of quality, like implementing CI/CD pipelines and Test Automation tools. As a software engineer in test you’re also aware of people and process challenges and how that impacts results too. Does this sound like you? Read on!
How you, as a Software Engineer in Test, bring teams to a higher level of quality
Qxperts consists of quality-minded experts with a clear goal to assist companies to deliver high-quality software. (Check out your new team!) Your duty is to help our customers with different challenges related to software delivery. By approaching challenges from a broad angle you enable them to enhance productivity, increase quality levels, simplify production for go-live or business continuity – Picture yourself in our team and the effect that you can make for teams! That sounds good to us, but there is some other stuff you would like to know.
What you will do as a Software Engineer in Test?
As a software engineer in test, you are confident about how software development should be done. One moment you’re helping teams to adopt a better approach (shift left). After that, you can be implementing a software development pipeline, for example, Azure or Jenkins. In this pipeline, you will implement Test Automation with Cypress to speed up the delivery process and increase confidence within the team. Apart from your assignment, you like to give workshops and training in Behaviour Driven Development or Test-Driven Development.
You work from home, at the Xebia offices, or on location in a team that can consist of other QX-ers, the client specialists, or consultants from Xebia (our mother company). We keep the communication lines short at Qxperts and are in touch daily with each other via Slack, Whatsapp, and email to spar about work and chit chat too.
