Job Description

You see the world around you having more and more computing power and connectivity. The resulting distributed systems existing of multiple micro-services deals with these massive amounts of data. In your role, you are able to test these systems end-2-end but also on a subsystem level. With your industry experience you can make and steer the decisions on which level to test a feature: rely on the unit tests a developer has written or on a component or even on a system level. You know that a service is not only determined by its features but also by its stability, throughput and latency. Testing also these properties is default practice for you. In doing so you are aware of costs and the need to ensure quality and balance these well. You realize that bringing value and quality is essential and you do so by standing on the shoulders of industry giants. In your role, you select the right tools to do your testing job. This way you deliver value and quality quickly.


You truly believe Agile/Scrum is the development methodology. By delivering features incrementally you welcome feedback from your stakeholders. As this cyclic type of development requires a lot of testing you are strong in test automation and an advocate of automation. You take on your test automation efforts just as a developer would do production code: structure well and refactor where needed.

You are an integral part of the development team: you participate in user story writing/analysis and execution as you take your industry experience (at least 4 years) with you and steer a team in taking testing into account from the start. A team player is who you are at heart, you get energized by working in a team and getting results as a team.

Your Toolbox

You take pride in having a large toolbox. Think, but not exclusively:

  • C#, Java, Python, Bash, PowerShell
  • Selenium, Grinder, Gatling,
  • Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku, Microsoft Azure
