Software Tester / Release Coordinator

Head Office

Because of an internal rotation we're searching for a new colleague:

Software Tester / Release Coordinator (32-40 h/wk)

Do you like software testing and coordinating software release at a socially involved and sustainable bank? Then we are looking for you!

You know better than anyone that testing is crucial for high software quality that is built. Quality that we monitor by extensively testing software, both manually and automatically, before we let our customers and colleagues work with it. You also know better than anyone that testing is more than just checking whether the promised functionality meets the customer's demand. You are someone who can assess risks well and who considers quality to be of paramount importance. You also convey this to the rest of the team and the organization. Besides that you also like to combine the work of a software tester with release management activities. We are currently taking concrete steps in the field of continuous delivery and possibly in the future also in the field of continuous deployment. You like to be involved in these kinds of initiatives and you also have (some) experience with them.

What are you going to do?

  • You'll test the work of the developers of the team.
  • You'll build automated tests when necessary.
  • You'll coordinate the (hotfix) releases that go to production.
  • You'll coordinate the monthly and annual tests.
  • You'll evaluate the hotfix releases together with the teams involved in order to improve structurally.
  • You'll monitor the entire release process for quality, completeness and timeliness.
  • You'll be closely involved in improvement processes in the release and testing process.
  • You'll actively participate in the test guild meetings.
