The Kantox Engineering Manifesto
Kantox is a team sport. Our engineering culture is devoid of egos yet we take great pride in our work. We believe in constructively challenging each other pushing our knowledge, code, processes to the absolute limit.
Our processes are based around continual self improvement, continuous code integration and deployment.
About the team
Although the whole Tech Department is responsible for the quality and reliability of the platform, from the QA Team we aim to make our contributions at different stages of the development. For example, we help Product Owners to produce product requirements that can lead to a meaningful feature. We also assist developers to write thorough automatic tests to cover all possible scenarios. Additionally, we can write tests and run E2E and integration tests while constantly keeping an eye on details.
Your mission within Kantox
- Collaborate with Product and Development teams to clarify feature requirements/user stories before development begins
- Work closely with Developers to ensure requirements/user stories have adequate automated test coverage (back-end, frontend and API)
- Carry out exploratory testing to uncover hard to find bugs not discovered by automated tests
- Brainstorm and communicate test ideas, identify quality risks and help the team become better at testing
- Mentor other engineers on good test practices and methodologies.
