If you’re a Quality Engineer looking for a new challenge, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Xero we don't just look at what we're delivering but how we're delivering it.

This means we put our delivery under the same scrutiny as our customer-facing products to ensure we can deliver better quality features, more frequently and with greater ease. Right now our team is looking for a Quality Engineer with a background in testing distributed systems in a cloud-based environment.

About the Role:
As the Quality Engineer you will be working closely with the Developers, Development Team Leads, Product Owners and the remote teams to ensure quality across our mobile platform.

You will take part in driving the testing guidelines and will be accountable for the quality of the key requirements to ensure successful delivery.

What you'll bring:

  • The ability to problem solve test strategies and frameworks/libraries
  • Ability to think beyond layered testing like only UI Testing/Backend Testing or Test Automation
  • Understanding the complexity of the ecosystem such as UI/Mobile Development setups, API development setups and deployment infrastructure
  • Demonstrated ability to learn and adapt to new programming languages and technology frameworks. Our tech stack at Xero is quite modern as we use AWS cloud and use Swift and Kotlin for Mobile Apps Development
  • Past experience/ expertise in any programming language
  • A strong "shift-left" focus. We have fully automated pipelines for pushing every single commitment to production and we believe in testing early. Most of our testing happens during the build artefact phase and before deployment. We heavily use docker containers and AWS images and local stack for setting up and running testings
