About your team

Your e180 team:

At e180, one of our core values is learning (“We have a growth mindset”). We cultivate human potential by enabling our people to learn from one another. We love to create rewarding learning experiences for our employees, clients and our community and want to increase the impact of collaborative learning around the world. We have invented Braindate, our flagship product, which helps people around the world, connect with each other and share their knowledge.

 

Your department:

The QA Analyst role lives within the Product team, nonetheless, they mainly work with the development (‘Dev’) team which maintains and iterates on Braindate, including the client-supporting tool, and other emerging products. The development (‘Dev’) team defines best coding practices within e180 and stays up-to-date in the ever-evolving field. They work hard to create a development culture that is dependable, scalable and agile.

 

Your team’s rituals and ways of working together

Each member of the team is autonomous, works remotely, and communicates with the team daily. Our projects are split between a Scrum approach and a Kanban approach to stay in sync with our development pace.

We are dedicated to creating pretty code that is documented, tested, and reads like prose to any other developer. Quality code makes for scalable projects and happy developers who feel accountable for maintaining it. We use the RICE prioritization framework to determine what’s the next most important bug to fix or task to complete.

We conduct regular optimization audits (run speed tests to identify bottlenecks and solve them) and meet daily for peer-to-peer code review so that we are continually learning from the diverse talent on the team.

We are using a continuous integration/continuous deployment process to make sure value is delivered to our customers and users as fast as possible. This makes the role of the QA analyst even more important because they need to identify and characterize bugs as fast and clearly as possible.

As the QA, we’re relying on you to be the guardian of quality and hold the developers and product team accountable for delivering stable and well-performing features.

Did our rituals and teamwork speak to you? Fabulous! You will like working with our team.
