GreenTech Mobile QA Engineer Remote


Job Description:

Role: GreenTech Mobile QA Engineer

Location: Remote within the UK

Salary: Up to £65K + equity & benefits, inc wellbeing allowance, pension & more.


Food waste accounts for roughly 8% of all global emissions. Between one third and half of all food grown never enters a mouth, some rots in fields, some in warehouses, lots goes furry at home or is sent to landfill.


Leading more sustainable lives isn’t hard but changing behaviours can be.


How would you like to make it easy for folks to adapt those troublesome behaviours, with incredible social and environmental benefits?


We’re working with a company tackling waste; food waste, furniture, books, equipment, clothing, you get the idea – take resources that some people need, where others have plenty and create a space where both sides win.


They’re already a global success with their web and mobile app live in ~150 countries.


They’ve always been remote and do a lot to ensure their teams are not just succeeding in work but are genuinely happy, rather than overstretched.


You’ll be working with a technical team of around 25, growing to around 40 in the coming 12-18 months, where every single person on the team contributes their own ideas, has a shared goal for the platform and most importantly, wants to increase impact.

As a Senior QA Engineer you won’t be having bugs, fixes or problems thrown at you. Rather you’ll be supporting the dev team to improve the quality of their testing, looking at how to automate out human error, contributing toward test strategy for growing to 10 million+ users in 12 months’ time, with ambitious aims through the rest of this “Decade of Action”.


Their tech stack includes a lot of Javascript, or Flow to be specific, ReactJS and React Native, Ruby on Rails, AWS with things like EC2, Lambdas, ECS, CICD with Circle CI, Terraform, Docker and more.


Priorities for this role are Javascript and mobile testing exp, particularly if it includes working React Native, iOS or Android and working on responsive device testing and using automation will cover key responsibilities in the early days. Anybody without mobile exp. won’t be considered.


So, you’ll do the heavy lifting when it comes to the more technical elements of QA, but you’ll also have a DevOps engineer to lean on and the 3 existing QA Engineers to understand how they’ve gotten to where they are – and that’s certainly not a bad place.


But I’m sure you can appreciate when a mobile and web app goes from having 6 million users, to aiming for 10, 20, 30 million users in the near future across global regions and varied infrastructure capabilities, there are some challenges.


So, if you’ve worked on web and mobile software with large volumes of users, lots of data being shared across systems and a scaling mindset, this one could be a good fit.


Now, the company aim to find people who are genuinely passionate about making our world a better place, they’ll want to hear about why and what that means to you, and how you’ve engaged with the climate crisis or other social issues, but they also appreciate that many issues are systemic and while we have our part to play, that doesn’t always mean buying an EV or solar panels.
