About You

You are an experienced QA, with ambitious horizons who wants to play a significant and rewarding role within our development team, where you are proactive, determined and passionate about Quality.

You are a creative and determined person that likes to "lead by example" to constantly drive the releases forward.

About the role

We are passionate about delivering quality software and we provide a supportive learning environment to help test Engineers really succeed, progress and develop their careers.

This senior individual contributor role provides you with an opportunity to partake and contribute to the quality of a feature or product from their inception, not just when code is handed over to QA. This is an integral role on the product team, collaborating with development and support teams through the whole SDLC.

About Wazoku

Will you help to provide clean water to schools in Mexico? To find a better solution to protect astronauts? To invent the next multi-billion market breakthrough? At Wazoku, that’s exactly what we achieve as we; change the world, one idea at a time.

We do this through our enterprise innovation platform that help organisations to find that one person who has that one idea wherever they are to solve their smallest to biggest problems to generate solutions that truly change the world. We work with Global 2000 organisations from the likes of NASA to Nissan and GSK, helping them discover new products and services, continuous improvements, but also ways to sustain our planet.

Wouldn’t you want to be part of this? To be involved in a new breakthrough idea that helped change the world into a better place? If so – we would love to hear from you.
