  • Well-principled. You’ll be contributing to the architecture of the tests and maintaining a growing test suite, considering scalability and modularity.

But most importantly, we do it all with the creativity, imagination and colourful spirit of our customers.

Changing the world isn’t easy, but we’re hoping to find the right people to join us on our way. If you think differently, believe in new solutions to old problems and have the drive to make things happen, you might just be what we’re looking for.
