REMOTE ORIGIN

And we are looking for you

Current positions

QA Lead

What good is a flashy app that lets you down in the worst moment? There is nothing more annoying than a buggy application that crashes for mysterious reasons in the most unexpected moments.

It will be your job to make sure this doesn’t happen. You’ll gain a deep understanding of how the application is used by users so that your QA team can run tests that reveal any nasty bugs. You’ll then investigate the problem and interpret it so that the development team can get rid of it. You’ll test for many connected devices and work with a variety of testing tools including our own Smart TV framework. This is a secret project that we are working on. Your feedback will be essential for the final shape of this product.

Skills

  • Comprehensive understanding of web development technologies (good knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, HTML)
  • General knowledge of Unit testing and E2E (End to End) testing process
  • Ability to train others regarding automated testing concepts; plus providing guidance and direction as needed
  • Ability to configure testing environment
  • Precise attitude, communicative
  • Fluent in English

Responsibilities

  • Creation and maintenance of test plans and test cases
  • Coordination and prioritization of test development activities and the ability to work with multiple developers and software projects
  • Basic administration of testing servers

QA Manual Tester

Sometimes automated testing doesn’t do the trick - humans still can’t be replaced by automation when it comes to testing of dynamically changing GUIs, usability testing or interpretation of defects. That’s where you come in.

In this position, it will be your responsibility to validate applications on various connected devices according to testing scenarios and report back so we can fix the bugs. To do this, you need to get a good understanding of how users interact with the application so you should be familiar with common UX principles. The good news is, programming knowledge is not required for this position, so it could be your foot in the door to get into the industry.

Skills

  • Good sense for web / mobile UX principles
  • Precise attitude / detail oriented
  • Communicative

Responsibilities

  • Manual testing on devices
  • Issue management and reporting

React Frontend Developer

If you want to put your skills to full use and learn a lot every day, joining us is a great way to do it.

We are not another agency doing websites. We develop Smart TV apps. We have been doing in for many years and become experts in it. To keep things fresh, we also like to do something new from time to time - we have prototyped products for innovation centers using the latest bleeding edge technology or worked on IoT projects for example. You’ll not get bored here.

You’ll meet a lot of React and Redux here, use new technologies (where it makes sense), work on performance optimization, code for various platforms…but most importantly - have a lot of impact on the final product.

So if you want to move from web development into full-fledged apps, get in touch. Our applications are used by millions of people every day.

Skills

  • Strong experience developing React (2 years preferred).
  • Extensive experience with HTML, CSS (including SASS), and JavaScript
  • Commitment to best practices and well-organized code
  • High degree of competency with compilation tools such as Webpack and Gulp
  • Knowledge of git
  • Experience working on large-scale, custom website builds

QA Automation Tester

Although automated tests save a lot of grueling human work, they don’t write themselves.

They need the help of a human (you!). You’ll be responsible for understanding the defined testing scenarios and flipping them into code. You’ll then run these tests and make sure they stay on track. You’ll work with many connected devices and various testing tools including our own. After your tests reveal those ugly bugs, you’ll interpret them and report back to development so that we can get rid of them.

This job is an excellent opportunity to grow your skills in the highly demanded field of automation and software testing.

Skills

  • Comfortable writing custom JavaScript code, basic understanding of web development technologies (CSS, HTML)
  • Basic knowledge of UX principles
  • Precise attitude / detail oriented
  • Communicative

Responsibilities

  • Write and maintain end to end tests and unit tests according to scenarios
