Quality Assurance Specialist

The best possible customer experience starts with ensuring the quality of our services.  In order to achieve this, you need to have thorough understanding of Software Quality and how to embed Quality in everything we are doing when it comes to delivering our Solutions. Although, the Knab goal is to automate as much as possible, we realize there’s a limit to what can be automated. Within Knab you lead our QA capability, set out the direction and plan for better Quality in our Solutions. 


Your daily activities: 

You will be defining the Test Strategy and you will be implementing this together with our development teams. You know how to manage a Testing framework and you are not shy of putting in the effort to get some actual testing done. You are familiar with coding and scripting, are eager to work with the latest (serverless) technologies and you are able to support colleagues with implementing Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. At Knab we have each other’s back! 

Next to this your first focus will be on our IT Transformation project. We are migrating core systems towards several SAAS solutions and you will assure this is done with the highest quality possible.  


Here’s a little taste of your challenge:

  • You develop a Testing Strategy and implement it with our development teams Knab wide;
  • You lead the IT Transformation project from QA perspective; 
  • Bring awareness and Support for TDD to the Software Engineers; 
  • Plan and manage the Testing Strategy over multiple disciplines and teams within Knab;

  • Coach and guide QA’s in their development; 
  • Lead our QA guild where our QA’s come together and share their knowledge. And you actively participate in Knowledge sharing sessions and platforms.


What you can expect from us:

  • A challenging position in a young, fast-growing and ambitious FinTech company where you can leave your suit at home;
  • We like to have fun. There is no sense in coming to work every day if you don’t like the people you work with;
  • Freedom to take your own initiative and responsibilities; 
  • The right laptop for you.  


What we expect from you:

There is no set route to become a well-respected QA Engineer at Knab. But to be successful in this role, this is the kind of profile we have in mind:
