About your team
Your e180 team:
At e180, one of our core values is learning (“Be a knowledge gardener”). 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.
The QA Analyst role lives within the Integrations and QA 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 development team is autonomous and has the option of working remotely (we do suggest a regular presence in the office) but communicates with the team on a daily basis. 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 weekly for peer-to-peer code review so that we are continually learning from the diverse talent on the team.
There can be rush periods when we need to expedite a fix or feature work: as the QA, we’re relying on you to be the guardian of quality and hold the developers and product team accountable to delivering stable and well-performing features.
Did our rituals and teamwork speak to you? Fabulous! You will like working with our team.
You will be in charge of testing the new features for the e180 braindate platform and dashboard, investigating the issues, and working closely with the Development team to make sure that releases go out smoothly. Your daily tasks will include testing the platform, creating and following test plans, developing and maintaining automation suites and creating new quality processes for the cycle of development.
