Senior QA Engineer

Job description

Are you the kick-ass Senior QA Engineer we're looking to join our amazing development team?

As our Quality Assurance Engineer you will be one of the key figures responsible for ensuring the quality of our product, working closely with our developers as we transition Mailbird from Windows to cross-platform - bringing it to macOS first, then beyond to other platforms.

We’re looking for someone who shares our passion for delivering an outstanding and reliable user experience, by taking ownership of all aspects of testing Mailbird and its latest features, before we release them to our customers around the world. The successful candidate would be very comfortable doing manual testing, but also have the ability to set up automated tests to improve the testing workflow. A pixel perfect eye for detail is also required, to ensure that all aspects of the UI and UX correspond to what our design team has envisioned.

We’re a remote native company, with an amazing international team. One of the best parts of working with Mailbird is the incredible team and culture we have. We encourage a balance of high productivity with other parts of life like health, wellness, learning, personal development, and of course fun! At Mailbird, each and every one of us is passionate about what we are building, and this makes our creations each day incredibly rewarding, challenging, and enjoyable all at the same time - it’s never boring with the Mailbird family!

  • You find it easy to build test cases and test plans, as well as preparing testing environments.
  • You are capable of creating detailed defect reports to highlight issues or unexpected behavior.
  • You have experience working within the .NET framework.
  • You proactively contribute suggestions for user experience improvements.
  • Experience in working with both macOS and Windows is highly desirable.
