Job Description

QA Engineer - Fully Remote (must be UK based)

My client is an exciting, fintech company who are turning the traditional lending process on its head using their Finance Referral Platform. They have strong relationships with more than 80 lenders and hold their credit policies, enabling small businesses to find appropriate lenders in minutes rather than days or weeks. They put small businesses in control of what finance they get and how. Their lenders include the biggest names in alternative finance!

They have helped 100,000 small businesses understand their finance options by providing their technology to price comparison websites to fuel their business funding channels. They've integrated into some lenders, along with cloud accountancy packages and open banking platforms, to help them deliver finance to SMEs as quickly as 10 minutes.

Half fin, half tech they have closed their series A and we've just got a £5m grant to expand what they do; starting an exciting new chapter offering our services directly into banks, lenders, brokers and industry bodies to transform the end to end lending experience for small businesses.

Our values

We want to be open with each other, challenging ourselves and past systems. We want to continually improve ourselves and how we work together. We want to be proud of what each of us and all of us have achieved.

We want you to feel the same way.

The role

We are looking for QA engineers with an aptitude for working with?others?to help us build a modern disruptive platform. You will join a diverse group of bright and passionate engineers, in a self-organising and cross-functional team. You'll be helping to define and participate in the end-to-end QA process, building and operating a bespoke cloud-based SaaS loan recommendation platform,?and creating?consumable API's. As a QA engineer you'll be expected to help promote a culture of quality amongst the entire team.

Our?full?stack is Java, JavaScript, React, and Athena, deployed on AWS via Terraform with New Relic for monitoring and alerting, but you won't be expected to know it all.?We use Java, Cucumber/Gherkin, Selenium and REST-assured for testing.

You should apply if you

· Are unreasonably skeptical

· Can test web applications and REST APIs

· Have good knowledge of Java, Cucumber/Gherkin, and Selenium

· Can write SQL queries

· Expect to automate everything, building and using CI/CD?pipelines

Location

We are currently 100% remote. We have offices in Shoreditch and central Cardiff. Our offices will be used with absolute sensitivity to each individual's needs and personal circumstances - you will not be asked to meet in-person in the short or medium term. Ultimately, our team will be able to choose how regularly they use an office, from predominately home-based to predominately office-based. However, we value the connections that meeting in-person can strengthen; those that ultimately choose to be home-based will be expected to travel to either London or Cardiff once or twice a month to meet with their colleagues.

Why you'll love us

· Super-talented teammates

· Immediate scope to make an impact and drive the business forward

· Work closely with some of the biggest firms in fintech/alternative finance

· Exposure to unique data assets and driving success through analytics

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
