Software Engineer - end-to-end Testing

At Insify we're looking for a talented Test Software Engineer to join our rapidly growing tech team.

Full-time · Amsterdam

Join the Revolution 

Commercial insurance needs to change. Insify was born out of our frustration with how traditional insurers operate. Whereas fintechs have permanently reshaped the finance industry, tech has not yet disrupted insurance. We are well underway to reshape the dull and tedious image of insurance to be engaging, easy, and fair (yes, really!).

We are a tech company at heart, building our very own insurtech platform. We extensively rely on data (API integrations, automated workflows, rule engines, natural language processing, machine learning) to figure out how to best get (and keep) our customer’s companies insured. Combine that with our fully online portal, real attention to UX, and leading underwriting, then getting your business insured may just become a surprisingly straight-forward experience.

Insify is a team led by seasoned entrepreneurs who have built several successful tech scale-ups in the past. We raised a tidy €15M Series A round from one of the leading investors worldwide: Accel Ventures, and are ready to take on our European competitors! We sell our very own Insify insurance products by partnering with Munich Re, the #1 reinsurer globally.

A day in the life of our Testing Software Engineer

Throwing code over the all to the QA team and hope for the best? No way. Developers take care of writing tests, API contract tests, component tests and of course unit tests. 

You will define test scenarios, implement Automated end-end tests and assist in debugging issues. And with your expertise in automated testing help the team to continuously improve their own unit integration testing.

The Ideal candidate 

Below we share a list of qualities that we're looking for in a person. But we also know that some people, often Women, do not apply when they cant reply YES to everything on the list.

Thats why we would like you to consider this list as a guideline and not a requirement.

We are looking for amazing humans, not someone who ticks all the boxes, so if this role seems like something for you, go ahead and apply! 

  • You have 3+ years of automated test development or full-stack/frontend experience. We give preference to candidates who have experience with large applications of scale.
  • You have a solid grasp of object-oriented programming and test methodologies; having coded in Javascript/Typescript, and a scripting language like Python. Experience with React helps.
  • You know the quirks of testing at the various levels of a web stack, and are well versed in writing tests at all levels.
  • You are well versed in end-end testing technology, such as Cypress, Protractor, TestCafe, and Cucumber. Not to forget the underlying technologies of Selenium Webdriver and Mocha.
  • CI/CD tools are your bread and butter to automate your test execution. If you know your way around with AWS, that’ll help in deploying E2E tests.
  • Given the insurtech domain, relevant experience in the insurance industry, is a big plus to know the pitfalls and corner cases.
  • You have an engineering degree (BSc or more, PhDs are most welcome) in computer science or equivalent.

Our Culture 

As a team we challenge and coach each other to constantly improve our work. We know that a truly diverse team can move mountains. That's why we strive for diversity of thought with every hire.

We love to be practical, lean and agile and work towards continuous improvement. We also love the close contact we have with our customers. We have clear deadlines and work hard, but do so sustainably. We believe in a great work-life balance and value our employee’s well-being.

Whatever the work, we love the challenge, and share the fun of building a disruptive insurance company that will make the world a better place.
