Test Automation Engineer

Ovenbouwershoek 9 , Apeldoorn, Gelderland, NetherlandsProduct Innovation

Job description

As a Test Automation Engineer, you will mainly be involved in setting up and automating tests. The focus will be on further automating the tests for our Universal GUI Front-end application, using React so we can take this up more broadly later on so we can ultimately support the various teams within our R&D department.

Key Responsibilities 

  • You will learn how the Thinkwise platform works, learn to build (test) applications and reproduce real-life situations that can be tested.
  • You will work on automated testing of our generic service layer Indicium (back-end) and the Software Factory itself.
  • You will help think about how we can make quality a structural part of the development processes in our department and contribute to test strategy/test policy within the department. 

Close communication with the various development teams is a very important part of your work. You will be in contact with other testers, developers, UI/UX designers and Product Owners, among others, to find out how things should work and what your tests should look like. You will also have occasional contact with other departments and end users.

Job requirements

We are looking for a social and enthusiastic colleague who likes to work in an informal atmosphere. Succes for you is a team effort. You are also agile scrum oriented. A sense of humor is a plus! For you, quality comes before quantity. We think it is important that you have critical view and you dare to discuss things with your colleagues. In your communication, you are proactive and enthusiastic. You like working in a team and enjoy sparring with your colleagues and reviewing each other's work.

In addition

  • You are TMap and/or ISTQB certified.
  • You have demonstrable experience with a structured testing process, setting up test environments and working with test automation tools for both front-end and back-end testing.
  • Experience with GUI testing, API testing, SQL and JavaScript is a must.
  • You have a Bachelor's degree, preferably with a technical component.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English and Dutch.

Benefits and Perks

  • Hybrid work environment. Work from home or at our HQ in Apeldoorn.
  • A healthy lunch buffet at the office with plenty of variety.
  • Good benefits, including a good pension arrangement.
  • Wild card days, on which you have complete freedom to work on a project of your choice.
  • 'Lifelong learning', where we encourage you to keep growing and developing. We do this through personal coaching and training. Among others via our own Thinkwise Academy.
  • The chance to grow along with our national and international ambitions.
  • An inspiring workplace within a legendary talented team.
  • Participation in various events, sports activities and team events.
  • Impact where it counts: we help to reduce our customers' carbon footprint. Significantly and demonstrably.
