We are currently searching for a Quality Assurance Engineer to become a valuable member of our team, whose main responsibility is to help maintain high levels of quality on our platform. In this role, you'll play a critical role in ensuring the software is error-free and our customers get an experience of the highest level.

Plate Up builds products that simplify the grocery shopping experience. We work with the recipes of celebrity chefs so that users can pick meals they love and then turn them into ingredients in their supermarket basket. By going one step further than recipe box kits, we let our customers also add any extra household items to round off their weekly shop. Our vision is to change grocery shopping for the next generation of customers and make people fall in love with it all over again. 

To be successful in this role, you should have a passion for accuracy and a strong attention to detail. You'll need to be able to work both independently and as part of a team, with a positive attitude and strong work ethic. We value team members who are highly organised and able to prioritise workload effectively to meet tight deadlines. We have several UI & UX improvements for the platform in the pipeline and it will be important that these new updates are released error free and function inline with customer expectations.

We're looking for someone who has the ability to learn new software and tools as necessary. We operate in a fast-paced environment, so we require someone who can work with agility, think outside the box and perform well under pressure.

As a member of our team, you'll have the opportunity to work with a talented and dedicated group and play a crucial role in supporting our daily operations. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is looking to make a difference and build a fulfilling career with a leading organisation.
