About the Job

Let’s talk business
Please provide us with a CV and meaningful work examples. If possible, provide us with a short video or letter introducing yourself.
First, we like to get to know you and want you to know us. Social and cultural fit is as important as technical skills for us. Thus, we prefer to jump on a video call for 30 minutes.
The hiring process will include an assessment task that should take 1-2 hours and can be done asynchronously. The task will be a realistic example of our day-to-day work.
We will conclude the process with a meeting with your future colleagues where you present the assessment task and discuss your findings.
The hourly rate for this position is 14€.
Remote within +/- 4 hours in reference to Berlin Time (CET).
What you get out of it
The QA team works very closely with both the product and the engineering teams and currently consists of 2 QA professionals. While both teams have requirements for the QA team’s work and processes, it is largely self-organized in the distribution and organization of tasks and your own input will be very valuable in continuously shaping the teams’ way of working. The product and engineering teams work with the Shape Up
methodology, splitting work into roughly six-week-long cycles and shipping a new release at the end of each cycle. Each engineering team is sized around 4-8 engineers, led by one engineering manager. The team structure revolves around the different layers of our SDKs and business, such as core, platform-specific, or solutions. Location-wise, all teammates are scattered all over Europe and working in a remote-first setting. Every year we get the team together for a fantastic trip to hang out and get to know each other in person.Tech-Stack
We are building SDKs for many platforms. Our business logic layer is implemented in C/C++ and shared between all our platforms. For each platform like web, iOS, or Android, we use TypeScript and React, Swift and SwiftUI, or Kotlin and Jetpack Compose respectively. Due to the nature of our product, we need to get our hands on almost every platform-specific language and UI system. In addition, we need to support every significant cross-platform SDK, such as React Native or Flutter. On the infrastructure side, we still have some services in Ruby on Rails but have started migrating everything to TypeScript and using more and more serverless approaches.
