About the position

The environment that Autify has to deal with is becoming increasingly diverse, features are becoming more complex, and the release cycle is getting faster.

At Autify, we think it’s possible to maximize development speed while maintaining quality through test automation. We evangelize this idea to our clients and also need to make this idea possible inside of Autify itself. You will be the key person for this.

You will exercise discretion to maximize the performance of our talented team members who come from all over the world. It’s a rewarding position that allows you and your team to contribute to accelerating the evolution of cutting-edge fields.
