How can you help?

Kopano needs someone who wants to play a role in getting high quality products to partners and customers.

Together with your team you will be working on existing and brand new components in our software stack. Through manual and modern automated testing and integration methods you will work with state-of-the-art technologies such as WebRTC and ChatOps for the Realtime Communication product suite, with Document Collaboration, Groupware Core, WebApp and our new Kopano API for the groupware offering. In the position of QA Engineer you have the unique opportunity to contribute to our products in many different ways. Not only does this include testing and working with CI tools, it also means helping define and shape the augmenting teamwork tools of the future.

The challenges you will face

You play an important role on the way from the "it doesn't work" that a customer reports to the finished work order for a developer. You will help our support team to ask the customer the right questions and provide test environments for our developers. But you will not only work reactively: Before each release, new functions and old regressions have to be tested. Can you find a way to automate as many of these tests as possible?

What does a typical day look like?

Can you make the difference?

  • Yes, if you have great analytical skills and a drive to dive deep into technological challenges;
  • Yes, if experience with Jenkins/Selenium or similar testing tools;
  • Yes, if you have experience with Docker, Bash and Python;
  • Yes, if Linux command-line belongs to your expertise;
  • Yes, if you have good oral and written communication skills. English is a must, Dutch an added benefit.
  • No, if you cannot combine to be a team worker while diving into given tasks on your own
  • No, if you need to meet or talk about every single issue directly now and with everybody
  • No, if you don't ask for help when needed

What's in it for you?

  • A market conform salary, depending on your skill and experience level
  • A good work/life balance, possibility to work from home a few days a week
  • Opportunities for personal development and growth
  • Secondary benefits such as holiday pay, 24 paid holidays, travel expenses, contributions to retirement funds
  • Many other things (often organized by colleagues!), like team events, sports activities and LAN parties
