Internal Application: QA Lead
Information Technology | London, United Kingdom | Full Time
Who we are:
GlobalSign is the leading provider of trusted identity and security solutions enabling businesses, large enterprises, cloud service providers and IoT innovators around the world to secure online communications, manage millions of verified digital identities and automate authentication and encryption. Its high-scale PKI and identity and access management (IAM) solutions support the billions of services, devices, people and things comprising the Internet of Everything (IoE). The company has offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
What we do:
In London, GlobalSign is developing the HV identity platform, forming the core of GlobalSign’s current and future products. Our platform is designed to scale to the needs of IoE and major cloud deployments, being capable of issuing billions of identities, with industry leading performance. Built to meet existing and future web standards and compliance rules, it is capable of servicing any scenario where strong identity is required.
As QA Lead you are responsible for the QA strategy of all HV products, from the customer portal to the API backends. You have experience as QA Lead or are a senior QA engineer who is ready to step up. You believe in automation over manual tests and know which tools work and which do not. This results in a high level of trust in any product or release that has been tested by your team..
We would love to meet you if:
You are constantly striving to improve life for both your customers and your team, proactively developing our QA systems, and automating anything you can. You are passionate about delivering the best possible service and quality to support this goal.
You are platform-agnostic, happy to select (and master) the right tool for the job and are able to justify the choice. We aim to standardize where we can, but ensuring we consolidate on the right system, rather than defaulting based on legacy inheritance.
You enjoy getting to grips with a problem. Your inquisitive mind and methodical approach enables you to drill down into an issue, breaking it into consecutively smaller pieces until you can isolate and identify the root cause.
You give respectful honest feedback, working constantly to improve yourself and help your team-mates, while considering (and accepting where appropriate) alternate, sometimes opposing, opinions.
You work hard to deliver highly available quality solution for everyone to enjoy.
