About the job

Providing heating and cooling for homes, buildings and industry accounts for roughly 50% of global energy consumption. Smart production, exchange, and consumption of heat in heating grids is the most significant opportunity for cities and industries to decarbonise. Yet, as heating grids transform towards renewables, they become increasingly complex and require a new approach to control and design.

Gradyent is a leading software provider that helps cities and heavy industry decarbonise faster by digitising, optimising, and transforming their heat networks with our Digital Twin. We are scaling the platform globally and looking for a driven Quality Assurance Engineer to support our product team.

• Performing regression testing

• Continuously increasing the maturity of the QA in general, involving functional and non-functional testing

• Refining and improving our test strategy to fit our product goals

• Supporting the integration of the testing in the CI/CD

• Alignment and collaboration with internal teams

What You Bring

• Experience as a QA Engineer, with proficiency in both manual and automation testing.

• A strong understanding of software quality, including static quality checks and dynamic testing, both functional and non-functional.

• A strong understanding of the software engineering lifecycle.

• Understanding of programming languages, Java is preferred.

• Experience with testing tools and automation frameworks, like Selenium and Cucumber.

• General knowledge of web applications, HTTP, sessions, cookies, etc.

• Ability to analyse complex systems and identify potential issues.

• Attention to detail, ensuring that all aspects of the software product are thoroughly tested.

• Ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with developers, product managers, or other stakeholders.

• Comfortable with ambiguity and changing scope.

• Strong personal development skills, open to feedback, and embracing opportunities to grow.

Find yourself checking a lot of these boxes but doubting whether you should apply? At Gradyent, we support a growth mindset for our teams through all stages of their careers. If you meet some of the requirements and you share our values, we encourage you to apply. As part of our ongoing commitment to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, we’re invested in building teams with a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, and experiences.
