Software Engineer in Test at Zivver B.V. (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

12 March 2021
Amsterdam, Netherlands


“Leave no bug behind!”, spoken like a true Software Engineer in Test (SDET). With your experience, you’re ready to raise the bar of our testing game. You use your development skills to deliver software solutions for test problems. At Zivver, this means you’ll be working in the dynamic Team Pineapple (spiky, but sweet on the inside) on cutting edge security solutions – which you as a true tester try to break and therefore have a huge impact on our hundreds of thousands of end-users, including some of the biggest organizations.

You’re an evangelist of the Automate ll he Things philosophy. Because you know: spending more time on automation cuts the release times - and speeding up processes is your thing. You’re energetic, well organized, and transforming chaos into calm is how you roll. According to your hiring manager Enrico, your team deals with interesting challenges you don’t often find at other companies. “They use pre-pack solutions; in some cases, they have to make them from scratch and that’s pretty awesome.”

Hot take

- Unreported bugs give you nightmares.

- Sometimes, you have to destroy something in order to build something better.

- Manual, shmanual. Talk automation to me.

A day at HQ

You kick-off your day with the Team Pineapple daily. During this meeting, you discuss a security improvement that needs some automation testing and you meet with engineer Fabio straight after. Fabio wrote it and you decide how to properly test it in a way that it can be tested every time we build the backend.

After lunch, you have a quick meeting with the other 4 test engineers who work for the other fruit-infused teams (kiwi, coconut, pineapple, strawberry, and avocado). You hear from Ruchika that the deployment went well, is tested nicely, and runs smoothly. Winning! Next up: we’re going to deploy software today, so you go through a list of things that are landing on the release so you’re all aligned. When you’re done, you prepare a couple of post-its with things you need to tell your manager Kieren in the retrospective tomorrow.
