We are looking for a Software Developer in Test to join our Engineering team in Athens.

As a tech enabled company we heavily rely on our software, from our website and mobile apps to our key business internal platform. Now, as we're doubling down on that, we aim for a robust continuous delivery pipeline across services, enabling numerous deployments per day. Testing is major part of the effort required and thus every SDET role very important to us.

Here's how test engineering fits into the picture at Blueground. Test authoring - both unit and functional - is responsibility of every engineer in all product teams. The test infrastructure, strategy and practices are implemented and guided by the SDET team with a bit of DevOps help. So this is not a "test the code of others" role but rather one that enables other teams to have a robust platform and methodology for embedding quality into our projects.

  • Track and report test coverage and code quality metrics
  • Write internal guides on software testing
  • Testing in production RnD
  • Make any relevant technology choices
  • Provide mentorship to support the quality discipline across the entire team
