QA Engineer

at UENI Ltd in London

Launched in 2015, UENI (pronounced you-en-eye) is a well-funded (£15m+ raised) growth company that helps small businesses go online. For £1 per day, UENI creates the business a professional website and gets it on the platforms it needs to be on in order to compete. Combining extensive data collection with the most up-to-date tech, UENI already digitised 1,000,000+ small businesses, and we are just getting started.

The UENI dev team currently consists of 9 developers of varying experience. We are working on a tech stack of Kubernetes, Docker, MySQL, Python3 + Django Elasticsearch, and React.

As we aim to provide online presence for small businesses, much of our work is very data driven. We already have collected data on over a million businesses. Many of the challenges on the dev team are around this large data set, providing internal tools to other teams to create, interact with, and manipulate this data. We are also delivering the end product to our clients, striving to provide the best digital presence we can which is cost effective and tech savvy on their side (aka automated whenever possible).

Job Requirements

As a QA Engineer, you would be involved at all stages to help ensure a high quality reliable product. This includes:

Having a broad knowledge of all parts of our product to have an awareness of how new features will interact (often devs will be too specialised to spot these issues)
Work with the Product team in the early stages of a new feature to raise concerns early and get a head start on a test plan before the devs finish the feature.
Enable and encourage devs to test their own code; ultimately everyone is responsible for the quality of their own work. But a second pair of eyes can help think of scenarios they didn't consider.
Where possible create fully automated integration tests across multiple components to find issues that narrow focused tests missed. Python + Selenium will likely be your friend here.
Not be afraid to get your hands dirty and do a few manual and exploratory tests when that's the best solution. Sometimes a quick test with human eyes finds an issue that 1000 automated tests missed
