QA Test Designer - Ghent | Lisbon

Job description

As a test designer at Teamleader it is all about delivering something you are proud of. Delivering quality can only work when you have been involved in the process from start to finish. You help teams think proactively about what and how to test new and existing features. At the end of the process, you’re the one everyone in the team counts on to give a feature a final go.

You put all your time and energy in quality. You’re the key partner for ensuring a perfect symbiosis between the product team, engineering team and QA. Together you strive for the perfect product. You make sure all team members don’t go crazy in releasing, but you’re responsible to only release when you know it’s unbreakable.

Your day at Teamleader

First things first: as soon as you come in, you check the dashboard. How smooth did the overnight test jobs run? You meet up with a Product Owner and development team to plan a new sprint. Together with the team you decide what the next feature is and what tests the team needs to do or what will be developed in the upcoming weeks. You review the stories again to add or review the acceptance criteria if needed. At the coffee machine, you bump into a developer. During smalltalk you discover you both have second thoughts about a decision you made last week. Pro-active as you are, you immediately take action by tapping the PO on the shoulder.

After lunch, you meet up with 2nd-line support to check on any quality problems and analyse what test coverage is lacking where and take actions to fill the gap. Later that day you put on your crazy hat and perform some out-of-the-box scenarios to see how the application reacts. Based on your test experience you update the automation UI scenarios in the codeless machine learning tool to increase its coverage if needed. When you experience any bugs or malfunctions, you write a detailed report about it to follow up on.

We are dynamic, not corporate

Teamleader is not your average “do this do that” IT company: the product & engineering team is more of a company within the company. The management trusts its decisions - this allows the team to make a real impact on development and product decisions. Nice fact: we deploy 15 times a week and you get a budget to visit the other offices. Work in sunny Milan, romantic Paris or hipster Berlin from time to time and get to know your international colleagues.

Looking for a fun, open and stimulating work environment? The quest is over: at Teamleader you get the time and budget to develop yourself, you can order takeout from the kitchen for you and your family and enjoy flexible working hours. We really push ourselves to give every employee the best possible work-life balance. And let’s not forget the afterwork activities, Cava (or beer) Friday and the international fold-ups that always result in big international parties.


Who are you? 

When testing, you empathize with the users and fully understand how they use our product. At the right moment, you are a pessimist and very eager to go to the extremes: you will do everything to break the system to make sure it does not break on the user’s end.

You speak English fluently (professional level) and possess great communication skills - both in person as in writing. This gives you the ability to provide the teams with an explanation when specific problems occur. You have attention for detail and you like to take things into your own hands and just make them happen. You have interest in testing methodologies, test data generation and root-cause analysis.
