HousingAnywhere is hiring a

Mobile Automation QA Engineer

Your Responsibilities

At Housing Anywhere, we aim to provide the best match for anyone looking for student and young professional accommodation. We are a peer-to-peer marketplace, meaning that you will be building an application to satisfy both sides of the accommodation market. Housing Anywhere is active in 50 countries and 250+ cities. We have partnered with 150+ universities worldwide.

Your goal would be to provide our users with a formidable experience when looking for a place to live. At the same time, you would be dealing with the interfaces that we provide to the advertisers who are offering their room. Eventually, we need to provide high-quality matching and drive trust between the marketplace participants. We think about these challenges every day, and we would like to invite you to think along and build a world-class product.

Our client-side app is built using technologies and tools like React, Redux, GraphQL, SASS and Webpack. Our back-end is powered by Go (Golang) backed by a Postgres database. The server components are hosted on a Google Cloud architecture that allows easy scaling. We've been using React, GraphQL and Golang in production environments since the early days.

We're a team of 30 people (product Lead, product owners, front-end engineers, back-end engineers, QA engineers and UX/UI designers) passionate about what we do. To scale up and take us further in our journey to become a global leader in the market, we are looking for a QA Engineer to take charge of and boost our test automation efforts, optimize the QA processes and deliver a high quality product to our users.
