Job description

Are you ready to take on a new challenge and make a significant impact at Budget Thuis?

How do we work at Budget Thuis?

At Budget Thuis, we are all about creating our own software. Our nine international development teams work closely together using agile (Scrum) methods. We give our teams a lot of freedom and responsibility for the applications they build.

What will you be working on?

We are excited to build a new backend system for one of our telecom products, and we need your help! While most of the work will focus on the backend, we will also create some internal UIs for our back-office teams. We are setting up a team of eight developers, a tester who will focus on manual testing and You: A Test Automation Engineer.

An important goal is to maintain a high level of test automation so we can release frequently and minimize repetitive tasks. While the developers will help with writing automated tests, you will be in the lead to determine what tests should be automated and, together with the architect, how.

  • Together with the architect and the team you find the best way to integrate test automation in our CI/CD pipeline
  • Identify bugs and report them effectively
  • Proactively approach the business to clarify new features when needed
  • Active participation in product development and staying up to date with technology and best practices

What do you bring?

  • 3+ years of experience in test automation
  • Experience in backend testing
  • Practical API testing skills (SOAP/REST, Postman, SoapUI)
  • Basic programming skills (Preferably C# or else Java, being able to read code and help with writing unit and integration tests)
  • Familiarity with various testing methodologies (Smoke testing, regression testing etc.)
  • Analytical & problem solving thinking
  • Critical thinking

  • Strong communication skills (Proficiency in the Dutch language is not required but a nice to have)
  • A proactive attitude and taking initiative in projects
  • Experience with working in agile teams
  • Willingness to learn new technologies and tools as needed

At Budget Thuis, we believe it's important to be 100% yourself. In our organization, we are open to different perspectives and personalities, where we value curiosity and appreciation for each other. For this position, we preferably seek someone who enriches our team in all aspects. Someone who, with their own background and personal characteristics, is a valuable addition to Budget Thuis
