What's your new role about?

Do you want to have an impact on a product used by millions of people on a daily basis? Join us as a QA Developer! 

DAZN is a streaming platform broadcasting over 40 different sports from more than 300 different leagues to 9 markets including Germany, Japan, Italy, Canada, USA, Spain, and Brazil (and more to come)!
 
On top of that, DAZN is also a great place to work and grow
 
We are a team called Manatees using agile practices to develop and maintain several backend microservices. We believe that individuals and interactions take precedence over processes and tools, so we strive to keep our way of working as simple as possible. We code in JS and TypeScript and are empowered to choose the remainder of the tech stack. It usually involves AWS-hosted solutions - ECS, Lambda, SQS/SNS coupled with AuroraDB or DynamoDB.
 
Currently, we place most of our focus on two microservices: one is a highly-performant search feature utilising ElasticSearch as its backbone, while the second one allows users to set and maintain a collection of events to follow and sends push notifications before they start using Airship. Both of them work across many markets and platforms, which requires close collaboration with other teams.

As a QA, your main responsibilities will be to develop automated tests and to perform manual tests for modern and scalable applications, with micro-frontends architecture on the frontend and a microservice-based architecture on the backend.

HERE’S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF...)

  • Developing automated tests for BE services 
  • Supporting the Agile team to deliver a high-quality product 
  • Developing your skills in the Quality Assurance area

  • Practical knowledge of any programming language 
  • Skills and experience in automating tests for functional & non-functional requirements 
  • Commercial background as a QA in an agile environment 
  • Self-reliance, ability to prioritize day-to-day tasks but also to work as a part of the team 
  • Ease of communicating in English 
  • Familiarity with GIT (or other distributed version control system) 
  • Basic knowledge of relational/non relational databases 

NOT ESSENTIAL, BUT GREAT IF YOU ALSO

  • Had some exposure to testing microservices 
  • Have an ability to review code with a focus on quality and performance 
  • Worked with cloud-based environments (preferably AWS) 
  • Are used to continuous integration / deployment practices
