About Autify

Autify Chuo-ku, Tokyo

Key benefits

  • Engineering-centric culture
  • Remote-first
  • Internationally minded engineers

About the position

To achieve faster release cycles and high quality, we are looking for a Quality Assurance professional who will constantly scrutinize what an ideal QA looks like and establish Autify’s position as an industry leader.

Responsibilities

  • Drive and own the quality output for one team and its product
  • Understand requirements, validate acceptance criteria, design test cases, with the support of the engineering team
  • Create test automation, manage the automation pipeline for the team and run manual tests
  • Track test gaps, quality, and productivity metrics. Work with other engineering teams to improve gaps in this data
  • Understand and fill the product gaps through internal product usage and driving initiatives with the support of engineering and business teams.
  • Design, promote and improve QA processes to maintain high quality without slowing down development. This includes proposing and formulating bug prevention systems.

Requirements

  • Being able to work in Japan standard time (Working partially in JST can be discussed)
  • At least 3 years of QA experience in agile software development processes.
  • Experience working in teams leveraging continuous Integration systems(e.g. CircleCI, Github actions, or Jenkins).
  • Experience in setting up QA processes for entire products with E2E automation tools (Autify, Playwright, Selenium, or Appium).
  • Collaborative team spirit with effective communication skills
  • Experience working with development engineers to improve QA processes.
    • e.g.) In addition to finding bugs in the testing phase, you have taken initiatives to prevent issues earlier in the development process (such as by adding automated tests in CI and reviewing specifications by the QA staff).
    • e.g.) You have worked with development engineers to improve the QA process to release features more frequently.
    • e.g.) You have demonstrated support for our solution direction by leveraging your understanding of the entire development cycle, software release pain points, and quality challenges, effectively translating this knowledge to benefit our customers.
    • e.g.) You have attended service specifications and UI/UX review meetings and provided suggestions for improving the software quality.
  • Ability to communicate and work in English
  • A passion for improving the entire development process and the overall quality of the product, not just around QA.
  • The drive to communicate proactively with product managers, development engineers, customer success departments, and other relevant departments to solve issues or improve the products.
