Mobile QA Engineer – FinTech – Central London

We are partnered with an established FinTech SME who offer numerous investment products to their growing userbase which currently stands at 170,000. Their engineering and QA teams have grown rapidly since the company’s beginnings in 2015, they now require a further QA with strong mobile testing experience on native apps across both iOS and Android platforms.

Ideally they are seeking someone who is interested in fintech, and excited to change how people in the UK save and invest along with a passion for all things QA and testing.

  • Play a part in clarifying business requirements and user stories.
  • Test new features and ensure existing features are working well.
  • Carry out smoke and regression tests where appropriate.
  • Carry out exploratory testing and knowing what will be enough.
  • Collaborate across the wider team, predominately, development teams, product owner and UX teams.
  • Work alongside junior members in the team to guide them and provide support where appropriate.

  • Charles proxy
  • Microsoft SQL Server
