Role overview

About the job

This is a full-time remote position in a distributed team. We try to stay close to the Atlantic Time Zone, but we are flexible.

Who are we

AvantStay is a growing, late-stage startup in the explosive $100+ billion dollars short-term rental (STR) industry, looking to provide world-class experiential accommodations for group travelers. The company has built a tech-enabled millennial hospitality brand to be the new standard for group-traveling experience, creating one-of-a-kind vacations experiences for people who are looking for more than the monotony of a hotel room and towards a much more personal home getaway.

What are we looking for

We are looking for an innovative Senior QA Engineer who has the capacity and desire to help the existing QA team organization on a path to implementing a coherent software testing cycle integrated with our fast product cycles and exciting launches.

Ideal candidates will be passionate about making part of a team that builds a culture of quality. Also passionate about writing good automation tests that not only assert the core functionalities of our products but also are well-written and well-structured in terms of codebase and architecture. The candidate should also understand the importance of manual testing of our product (exploratory testing), and planning hybrid test cycles to ensure that we release quality products while we also cover the areas where automation has not touched yet.

Quality is not just about testing, so we also look for people that can approach quality holistically within the organization and not just have focus on testing.

You should also be flexible to understand that we are in the initial phase of implementation for the automation and QA process and understand how to create and collaborate as a team to contribute to its status in an under-construction environment.

What you will do

  • Write automated tests that are not flaky and cover our main functionalities
  • Identify and report bugs found through manual (exploratory) or automated tests and report for your team using meaningful Jira tickets.
  • Eventually run manual tests (exploratory test)
  • Contribute to the vision and long-term strategy in your domain of expertise;
  • Drive good QA engineering practices within your team;
  • Challenge yourself to keep growing as a QA Engineer;
  • Act as QA point of contact within your Pod
  • Act as a QA advocate with other QAs and help spread the culture of quality
  • Collaborate in building a robust automation framework, supporting our Smoke, regression and E2E automated test suites

What you will bring

  • Your energy and desire to test our products, find bugs and bring team collaboration to a new level.
  • Testing knowledge in general: which tests to perform on which situation
  • Ability to write well-structured tests on testing frameworks., We currently use - Cypress (Javascript/Typescript), and will soon start using Detox for mobile testing, and Jest/RTL for React component testing - we don’t require you to be a pro, as we will do code-reviews on a regular basis to constantly improve our coding skills.
  • It’s also desired that you can read front-end code, especially React, so that we can keep a degree of independence when writing tests (yes, you are able to suggest changes in the codebase to improve testability).

Who are you?

  • Team Player
  • Curious
  • Possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Be organized and have excellent time management skills, and the ability to break your work down into different kinds of tasks
  • Proactive;
  • Committed to results;
  • Passionate for problem-solving;
  • Eager to learn new technologies as the need arises;
  • Think outside of the box;
  • Fluent English. (Writing, listening and Speaking)

Experience needed for the job (3+ years as QA Engineer)

  • Proven experience with test automation frameworks (Preferably Cypress)
  • Testing automation using any Javascript framework (Cypress, Jest, RTL, Detox, Mocha, Sinon, etc)
  • Manual testing skills with keen attention to detail;
  • Organized and detail oriented person, with ability to report detailed bugs and provide appropriate evidence / details on problems that are encountered during tests.
  • Ability to communicate with team members and stakeholders about a given topic.
  • Well experienced in software quality principles
  • Experience with CI/CD

Nice to have experience

  • Typescript
  • A little bit of front-end coding experience, especially React
  • GraphQL queries (but you would be able to learn with us if you know how DB queries work)

What you can expect from us

  • Modern testing stack: Cypress (use data-session lib, custom commands, app actions, etc,), Detox, Jest/RTL, etc; Non-testing stack: AWS, k8s, Kafka, React, React Native, Next.js, TypeScript, GraphQL, Mobx, CSS-in-JS;
  • Friendly environment;
  • Openness to new ideas and technologies;
  • Career paths;
  • International team;
  • Always learning and always improving teams;
  • Flexible working hours;
  • No residence or relocation requirements.

Perks & Benefits

  • Salary: 
  • Team bonding and off-site events
