QA Engineers

Exciting times lie ahead for Y Soft and we’re scaling up by building a new Scrum team in Brno. The team will join our existing engineering teams which use Large-Scale Scrum to deliver YSoft SafeQ to thousands of new and existing customers all over the word.

Our goal is to develop intelligent enterprise office solutions that build smart business and empower employees to be more productive and creative. We are looking for new colleagues to help us accomplish this goal by developing technical excellence related to the cloud, creating and using APIs, refactoring big systems, and automating processes and tests.

Responsibilities & tasks

Each of the existing teams works independently to delivery product increments (meeting UX, security, and architecture requirements) usually spanning over different subsystems, mostly written in C# and Java.

This role will constantly improve testing tools, approaches and our company’s quality standards and make sure our product is meeting these standards. The more automated this gets, the better for the entire team.

While some daily tasks are tied to maintenance of existing products, others aim to push the YSoft SafeQ product to the next level.

Role requirements

We are looking for QA engineers with different levels of seniority (Junior or Senior) who have: 
  • Experience with test automation development
  • Experience with test cases management
  • Experience (and enthusiasm) with performance or security
  • Understanding of Python, Gherkin and BDD principles
  • IT administrator skills (setting up IIS, LDAPS, Firewall, installation of OS for example)
  • Passion about technology and the need to grow as a professional
  • Ability to identify possibilities for improvement and drive required changes
  • Ability to openly and clearly communicate including providing and receiving feedback
  • A teamwork mindset
Since this is an independent team, a range of competencies and product knowledge must be present. We will be thrilled if you have some of the following expertise:
  • Cloud
  • API testing
  • Creation of testing strategy including test maintenance
  • Integration/usage of test coding practices and tools

We offer

If you join Y Soft, you can look forward to a friendly working environment where people appreciate initiative, accountability, enthusiasm, energy, openness and ethical behavior. Y Soft supports engineering communities by organizing or attending meetups and conferences and extensively cooperates with local universities on thesis supervision and teaching.

Meet Your Future Colleagues

Engineering Tech Lead
"Since joining Y Soft part-time in 2014, I have advanced from a Junior Embedded Systems Developer to an Engineering Tech Lead and am now responsible for the Engineering Team's work. During these three years, I've touched on everything – from hardware to websites and applications.

I have learned more in one year at Y Soft than in three years at university.

My work is varied allowing me to learn many types of technologies and to integrate industry innovations into my everyday work."
R&D Manager
"I joined Y Soft’s R&D department as a QA Engineer. I have an interest in how people work together so after one year, I managed a group of student interns and took an interest in their career development. The following year, I managed a Quality Control Coordinator and then became a Test Lead two years later leading a group of QA Engineers. Soon after, we developed a robotic hand that has grown into a robotics team that I have been leading since its inception.
Currently, I am an R&D Manager and, in addition to the robotics team, I also take care of the R&D infrastructure. My career advancement was fueled by my will to always do something extra, to work on myself and to keep a professional attitude at all times."
Event Coordinator
"I joined Y Soft in April, 2016 as an Office Assistant. I quickly realized that this is the kind of work you do, not because you have to, but because you enjoy it.  

Just one year later, I applied for an Event Coordinator position. I succeeded and moved into the marketing department where I take care of corporate events held around the world.

I like the people I work with. I enjoy the freedom of organizing my own work, and I have gradually collected a variety of valuable skills that has enhanced my career further."
R&D Intern
"I became acquainted with Y Soft through a competition at Masaryk University. The competition topic I had chosen eventually turned into my Bachelor thesis. I liked how Y Soft worked with students systematically. Nobody at Y Soft looks at you strangely when you want to write a Bachelor thesis.

Today, I focus on monitoring. I appreciate the space that we have to research new technologies and the time flexibility allows me to combine work with university studies."
Solution Consultant
"After I finished my studies at Masaryk University, I stayed at the University as a YSoft SafeQ admin. When I started looking for a new job, Y Soft was my first choice. I joined the Customer Support Services department as a Technical Consultant in May, 2012.

Within two years, I became a senior technical consultant and have been working as a solution consultant for the last two years. 

With my career advancement, I am able to get new, more interesting and complex tasks by working with some of our larger customers. I am delighted that the company trusts me and appreciates the work I'm doing."
Junior Embedded System Developer
"I wrote my Bachelor and Master theses while working part-time at Y Soft. I was very motivated by Y Soft's constant interest in pushing my work further and received a lot of useful feedback from them. At the same time, I was given enough freedom and time to choose the direction I wanted to take.

Today, I work on projects for mobile devices and servers.  The team of people I work with are the main reason I enjoy Y Soft."
Junior Technical Product Manager
"My first contact with Y Soft was during my second year of university through a competition for talented students. After working on my Bachelor thesis with Y Soft’s assistance, I accepted their part-time job offer and worked with the development team to grow my knowledge of complex distributed systems. Now I'm a full-time junior researcher.
Because of the various projects I have worked on, I have learned about the entire product. This has given me exposure to the product management teams. I now participate in the most important projects related to our products."
