We are looking for a customer-centric, passionate, and creative agile tester who will help the development team build new, high-quality tooling focused on providing existing and potential customers with the best journey possible. The quality that we deliver to our customer will be your primary focus, but at the same time, you must take into account business needs regarding implementation speed and time to market of new functionalities.
We are an international e-commerce scale-up in the travel industry, founded in 2006 and leading in our market. We help travellers from all over the world to have an unforgettable experience in Europe. As a scale-up, Eurail.com offers you the best of both worlds. We offer you the atmosphere and freedom of a start-up, combined with the professionality and resources of an established company.
The technical environment consists of an AWS environment (elastic compute cloud and lambda) with Adobe Experience Manager as CMS and Commercetools as e-commerce engine. As we are a fully e-commerce company, we have other IT systems for payment, fulfilment, and translation solutions. Our objective is to have a fully microservice-based infrastructure.
Job description and Role
Together with the in-house development and test team, you will work using Agile Scrum methodology to ensure and validate the quality of all projects and initiatives and work cross-functionally with product owners and other colleagues from Operations, IT, Marketing, and E-commerce before, during, and after project launches. This involves all kinds of testing including:
risk-based functional testing
acceptance testing with the product owner
integration testing of all the e-commerce microservice systems
You will also be responsible for the QA-related processes and quality standards.
As a real team player, you will coach the developers, testers, and other team members and help them to adopt a quality-oriented mindset.
Finally, you will help the test automation grow as a mature tool within the organization to make testing more effective and efficient. Eurail.com uses Robot Framework for test automation. As we extend our e-commerce environment with new tooling (e.g. electronic Interrail and Eurail passes and our own travel app), this framework will need to be extended as well.
