About the Job
IMG.LY is an industry-leading provider of photo–, video– and creative–editing Software Development Kits (SDKs). Thousands of customers, from Fortune 100 businesses to startups, are using our solutions to empower their products and services. This year, IMG.LY started rolling out the Creative Engine, a powerful and disruptive technology enabling customers to build any creative tool, workflow, or infrastructure with just a few lines of code.
At IMG.LY, we care deeply about our product quality. As such, we’re looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer to make sure features meet their product requirements, and we don’t introduce any bugs, performance issues, or regressions. Primarily, the role focuses on our SDKs and solutions, but you might also get in touch with other projects, such as our website or customer portal. For this, you’ll work closely with our engineering and product teams.
What you get out of it
The QA team works very closely with both the product, as well as the engineering teams and currently consists of 2 QA engineers. 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, but we also have small offices in Bochum and Berlin where everyone can hang around. Every year we get the team together for a fantastic trip to hang out and get to know each other in person.
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.
IMG.LY is a vibrant remote-first company with headquarters in Germany. We empower developers to build fantastic software across all industries by providing them with beautiful photo–, video– and creative–editing SDKs. Customers like Amazon, Brother, HP, and Hootsuite trust our solutions as we ensure fast and smooth integrations for accelerated product development and time-to-market. You will work with tech-savvy, creative, and open-minded peers who enjoy building great products that empower developers. We value transparency and over-communication – that is how we keep pushing forward as an international team of over 50 people. We’re committed to continually improving, being open to failure, and allowing ourselves to tinker with new ideas.
