Job description

Hello from Vestberry! For the last four years, we’ve been building a fintech analytical tool that’s helping manage billions of dollars worth of private equity & venture capital fund investments. Currently, we are looking for an enthusiastic software test engineer to join our team. We do not expect you to sit all day clicking buttons. Testing can be a lot of fun and you should know how to use that to your benefit.

Responsibilities:

  • In general, you will participate in the process of test development, but for a better understanding of what you would be doing, here are your responsibilities:
  • Developing tests in Cypress.io.
  • Continuously improving our test harness.
  • Identifying the parts of the application that need to be covered by automatic tests.
  • Improving the selectors (to be less flaky) e.g. by adding new “data-cy” attributes into the code.
  • Ensuring the tests constantly succeed in our CI pipeline built up in GitLab.
  • Pushing your work into GitLab as a merge request, reviewing the code of other team members’ merge requests.

Also, you will participate in testing that includes:

  • Daily communication with the development & product team requiring a good understanding of existing and new features.
  • Functional testing and most likely non-functional testing such as visual, load, or performance testing.
  • Reporting bugs in JIRA.
  • Participating in creating documentation for testing purposes.

And, if none of the above sounds familiar to you, don’t worry we will teach you what you need to know.

We do not have strict rules, you are only required to attend our standups at 9:00 CET. Whether you like to take a nap after lunch or have various tasks to get done throughout the day, it’s up to you how you manage your time.

What we offer:

We believe Vestberry is an opportunity to work on a successful local project in the fintech sector with clients worldwide. It’s still “just work,” and we try not to take ourselves too seriously, but we place importance on creating an environment where we can enjoy ourselves most of the time.

Vestberry isn’t our first rodeo. While our average age is 30, we’ve already been through stuff, know where our boundaries are and have a culture where it’s OK to admit we don’t know something. That’s why we love people who know more than us and frequently engage them as consultants or hire them full-time. Also, we have an atmosphere of mutual trust and growth. We share “typically hidden” details during our all-hands, answer all questions, and often have team-generated sessions where we learn from each other. You can read more about us at https://linktr.ee/vestberry.

Work-life balance

  • Vacation days & sick days: Take the time you need to recharge and come back full of new ideas and energy. Everyone is guaranteed a minimum of 20 - 25 vacation days.
  • Flexible hours & work from home: We let you structure your work schedule around your needs and it is up to you where you work. We welcome you to join us in the office from time to time.
  • MultiSport card: Everyone gets a fully paid MultiSport card to enjoy various sports and wellness facilities.

Team bonding

  • Quality time with the founders: Get 1on1 time with a founder to talk about anything. Share your ideas, ask for advice or just bond. Book one of the “Talk to me about anything” slots in their calendar.
  • Company offsites: Twice per year, we get away from the office for a few days, reflect, and have meaningful discussions about strategy, and the future of the organization.
  • Team breakfast: Twice a month, we take a long morning and catch up with colleagues from other teams on both work & fun topics over a delicious breakfast.

Office life

  • Great office location: We’ve got a private office within Campus Cowork in Bratislava’s city center, overlooking the Presidential Palace (say hello to Madam President). There is a rooftop terrace on the 7th floor as well.
  • Pet-friendly colleagues: Most of our colleagues have a dog or other pets. We even have a #cutenessoverload channel on Slack where you share your cute pet moments. Anyhow, your furry friend is welcome to join you at the office.
  • Plants all around: Forget about the concrete jungle and unwelcoming office buildings. In the Vestberry office, there are more plants than people. Welcome to our jungle.
  • On-site coffee shop: Need a coffee break? Campus Cowork has an on-site coffee shop with great coffee and various snacks. Order a cup of coffee and head to the 7th-floor rooftop terrace to enjoy it.

Preferred experience

Are you the kind of person who would load a save a million times in a game, just to see all the different outcomes if you changed one little thing?
You do not have to be the next Clark Kent, but someone more or less like Tony Stark, who can build up the suit and be like Superman. We’d love to welcome a new tester with such an approach to their job. You should be a tech-savvy person who enjoys exploring various solutions and wondering how to break them, questions everything they encounter, and focuses on making it better. You should seek to be as critical as possible, detail-oriented, and not afraid to ask for help when you don’t know something.

Regardless of the specifics of your career journey, you should be able to demonstrate:

  • Familiarity with any programming language (preferably Javascript), and you should be eager to write code even though you do not have any previous work experience.
  • Some experience in functional testing of SaaS or any other web-based application.
  • Some experience (although this is not essential) in any test automation tool such as Cypress.io, Selenium WebDriver, etc.
  • Knowledge of software QA methodologies, tools, and processes.
  • Ability to communicate clearly in spoken and written English.

If you are interested, please send us your CV and cover letter in ENGLISH.
