Right now, we're taking this success and scaling it, building out a continuous delivery environment as we grow. And you'll be instrumental in helping us do just that.
This is not your normal QA Engineer role. As we move closer to a continuous delivery environment our team of developers are keen to take on the day to day testing of what they're building.

In this role you'll use your experience and vast knowledge of testing principles to coach and guide the team in best practice and help to make testing a part of our developers' everyday roles.

- Create a culture of quality, ensuring testing is a key part of everything we do
- Help our team of developers take ownership of not just building their code but testing it too
- Remove the usual QA safety net, this role will see not just detecting bugs, but preventing them from being written in the first place.
Together with our team of developers you'll carry out thorough testing that meets the highest standards. By working on a range of innovative and interesting automation projects you'll aid us in reaching faster delivery times, ensuring we continue to lead the RegTech market, rolling out innovative and solution focused products in line with the ever-evolving Financial regulatory demands.
The perfect person is:
· Knowledgeable of all aspects of the QA Engineering process
· Experienced in automated testing as well as a wide variety of testing efforts, techniques and tools.
· Great at communication with solid people skills, ideally with experience in coaching and developing others.
This is an opportunity to join a team of forward thinking experienced professionals, work with the latest technologies and evolve business processes to embody the true meaning of agile. You'll need to be passionate about what you do, ready to get stuck in wherever's needed and able to take ownership for key metric improvements.
Our team of more than 70 people across Europe is continuously developing our products to meet the challenges faced by our customers. To us innovation is not doing what you did yesterday. And this is what Arkk delivers, through our technology and our people.
