Our Ask

We are looking for an experienced QA Lead who gets excited about ensuring that users are getting the best possible experience from a product. You are an advocate of the quality assurance model and focus on providing training, tools and environments for developers to test, helping streamline and improve development processes and preventing issues before they become bugs. 

We are looking for natural collaborators who love to deliver high quality experiences, focus on the user outcomes and continuously improve. Your brand should be defined not just by your professional skills, but your curiosity, your eye for detail and your desire to collaborate with people from different backgrounds with diverse perspectives.

Your job is to support building high-functioning teams in which every member of the team can be relied upon to do a great job at testing, and the QA engineers are focused on solving the big-picture problems.

  • Strike a balance between quality and short and long term delivery objectives through the application of appropriately scoped testing strategies.
  • Support the automation of testing of the UI across our platform and therefore minimise the need for manual testing.
