As a member of komoot’s Quality Assurance team, you’ll play a key role in delivering new, bug-free features to our users worldwide. We work in cross-functional squads, so you’ll work with a range of people from product managers and designers to developers and data analysts to test and bring new features into the world.

Why you will love it

– Your work will contribute to helping millions of people enjoy lovely outdoor experiences.

– We’ve been a remote-working company since 2017, meaning: We are remote by default, have frameworks and systems in place, and know how to do it well.

– You’ll become an essential part of our diverse and international team with colleagues based in 15+ countries across Europe.

– 38 paid days off (inclusive public holidays) – you are free to take those days whenever it suits you, including a well-deserved winter holiday break.

– We love seeing people grow. That’s why each team member gets €2,000 and 3 additional days to spend on professional development each year. Classes, conferences, books – your choice!

– Costs covered for your co-working space membership or your work-from-home office setup and the latest devices and equipment to do your best work.

You’ll be successful in this role if you

– Have the ability to investigate the root cause of bugs with tools (e.g. Charles, AWS, Instabug) and document them consistently

– Love to understand every detail of a product and its impact on our users

– Have experience working with APIs, building SQL queries and an understanding of client-server interactions

– Know how to write BDD scenarios using Cucumber in a consistent and structured way

– We work on a project basis in squads and teams to ensure that we collaborate on our goals, move forward smoothly with open lines of communication, and achieve results as a team.
