A great match for us
This position asks for a person with excellent analytical skills, attention to details, and an eye for coordinating with others and meeting deadlines.
It is important that you have a passion for testing, truly care about the quality of the solution, and are able to create overviews of large amounts of data and processes. You must therefore be structured, methodical, and committed. And you must be able to assess when specific types of tests should be carried out and which tools should be used.
You will need a self-starter, pro-active attitude and require little need for supervision. However, the ability to work independently should not diminish your strong team-player spirit as we work as ONE team, who is always there for one another.
The position involves daily contact with colleagues from different teams, contractors, and outsourced vendors. You must therefore be service minded, enjoy building relationships, plus thrive in communicating online, on the phone, and in-person with many different people. In some scenarios, the in-person communication will require some travel.

- Cypress, Jest, Cucumber, Vitest, Geb, Postman, Spock
- Kafka, PostgreSQL, Neo4j, Elasticsearch
- GIT, Jira, or any similar
- Test analysis, test design, test techniques or equivalent
The most important attribute is your attitude towards and motivation for the position. Whatever you may lack in experience and knowledge, we can teach you. Therefore, you can be fresh out of school and want to develop your skill further, and we will take the time to invest in you. This not meaning that if you are a senior profile you are not to apply for this role, as we are also looking for experienced and pre-skilled people to take on and further develop within the Insurance world.
Since we work cross-borders, language skills are vital. Speaking and writing a very high level of English is a must, and knowing one of the local languages of the country you will be placed in are preferable for the integration of the workplace.
