QA Engineer

Job description

You are the Robin or Catwoman to our Batman's! You are always ready to support 'the Bat’ (our developer) with new automation so he can bring new gadgets and we move like a shadow in the wind. Faster. Swifter. You are improving our test cycles with more automation (in C#) on a daily basis and love to do so. You will work in a great team in our Amsterdam office next to Vondelpark. Together you will work on bettering our Deposits product and its development cycles!  

Scaling the product and your skills

Safened is a scale-up (combined with Fourthline, our KYC brand) that has a strong focus on autonomy, continuous improvements and learning, and from time to time you will be pushed out of your comfort zone to learn and gain more professional and personal growth!  

We don't just want you to "test our software" because we believe that with the right mindset you can grow together with us. And we hope that you can teach us some tricks as well so we can improve our test cycles! In short, we hope you can scale the product and your skills here at Safened ultimately increasing our automated testing coverage a lot!


Your mission 

As our QA engineer within Safened your mission is to execute on the current testing strategy which is focused on manual testing now, and make our tests automated every single day! For scalability and growth! 

It is you that makes sure that Batman can ride the Bat mobile. That his gadgets are sharp, refilled and ready to use. And although our Bats push code into production and don’t hang out on the streets that much our software is here to support wealth managers and companies to allocate funds properly. 

In short:

  • You develop test plans and test cases based on business requirements of functional and non-functional specifications
  • You design, develop, and maintain automated tests (in C# / .NET / Selenium)
  • You are essential in bug reporting and tracking (JIRA)
  • You perform manual and automated testing on our different portals 
  • You automate more and more of our test work. Making us even more scalable (we only have happy flows now, automation is key!)
  • You build and deliver QA documentation for developers and maybe also some clients.


Your background has made you use the Batman utility belt which includes a wide array of tools. A few of them:

  • The Batarang: The most used tool (for us that is JIRA and Confluence)
  • Bat-stungun: 'stunning' automation skills (Visual Studio, Postman, C# etc...)
  • Bat-darts: Azure DevOps + CI or something similar (Gitlab, Bitbucket)
  • Bat-Tracer: Performance testing (Microsof Azure and SoapUI for functional testing)
  • Bat-claw: You have worked in development teams for some time ...In Angular and at least one year in C#. Preferably 2+ years in C# / dot-bat technologies...uhhmm, we mean .NET obviously... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Who are we? 

We are Safened – an award winning and fast growing FinTech scale-up, motivated by a vision to turn financial risk and regulatory challenges into simple and easy used solutions. Simple, because we reduce complexity and offer easy-to-integrate solutions to financial institutions and platform businesses. easy to use, because we enable our partners to use the best platform in a very accessible and stable platform that goes the extra mile for our users and their clients. 

We use state of the art technology to deliver the best Deposits product available in the market. We do this with a fun and international team of like minded people that want to go fast and far. Together. 

<<<for this role we will not relocate people outside of EU (not offering sponsorship) and we prefer a person that is in Amsterdam already>>>
