QA Engineer

Location: Gdańsk, Poland

On behalf of aNewSpring, Efisco is looking for a QA Engineer to join the expanding team of currently about 15 developers on a full-time basis. If you have experience with the testing of a web application and are familiar with tools like NightwatchJS to automate this testing, we are waiting for you!  

Do you send an email to a company if a button on their website doesn’t work in your browser, after checking it in several other browsers? Do you wake up days later thinking about this issue and will you try to reproduce it again, and write an automated test for it before grabbing coffee, to make this easier the next time? Did you just enthusiastically say yes? Then we’re looking for you!
