On a mission to help people who have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, this start-up are looking for their first QA hire.
Their mission is to make life better for people suffering from kidney disease by building one of the first algorithm-based behavioural change programmes. The application that does this brings together tech and health coaches that can be prescribed by doctors – yes, that’s a thing in Germany!
You’re going to have a huge influence on how the quality assurance processes are set up. They have said they want an automated system in place so you’d need experience there, as well as with manual testing. As they’re building a medical device they need someone who wants to set high standard – you’ll be writing detailed and comprehensive test plans, as well as ensuring there is regulatory compliance across process and documentation.
At present there are three engineers working on the product (they work solely with TypeScript and Node, with React Native for the mobile application), with a further person scheduled to join soon. You’d be joining this close knit team.
What experience do I need?
Due to the nature of the build they do need someone who’s ideally got experience of working on high scale systems, as well as within a start-up. They’re thinking of using test frameworks such as Cypress, Playwright and Detox, though as mentioned you’ll also have input here. You won’t have to set these up from scratch but you will need to write tests, with support from the engineering team.
What’s in it for you?
Culture is key to these guys. You’ll be given freedom to work remotely, flexibly, in an autonomous way. They are an early stage start-up so there’s not a ton of benefits at the moment, though they are offering generous equity (as the first QA hire and the person who’s going to build the product, you’ll be well renumerated here), a 5K training budget and 28 days holiday (plus your bank hols).
Not to mention the company having an incredibly diverse workforce, cross-collaboration across teams, and lastly, a deep sense of meaning and purpose behind what you do, every single day. Salary wise, they’re happy to offer up to 65K Euros.
