Your Tasks

Shop Apotheke is the online pharmacy for Europe. We are all about health! Our e-pharmacy serves 7.9M+ customers across Europe, and we welcome more new users almost every week. We are growing the existing platform and adding entirely new services to it. Our goal is to enable our customers to live their healthiest lives possible.

We are looking for a Quality Assurance Engineer to join our team. Come, build with us!

Your tasks:

  • Drive the topic of Quality: you know that Quality Assurance is at large about understanding, flagging and mitigating risk, and you foster this mindset in the team. You work closely with developers, and you regularly align with them on when and how features go to production.
  • Consult and advise: you partner with the Product Owner. You challenge their requirements and solutions proposals. You showcase risk upfront and advise the Product Owner on strategies to overcome it.
  • Do knowledge sharing: you are part of the Quality Assurance chapter. You talk through day-to-day challenges and wins. You exchange ideas and experience about tools and approaches. You establish common standards.
  • Test!: you take advantage of the possibility to test on multiple levels, such as unit, integration and GUI. Enjoy grappling with new features and know the importance of regression testing. You design and implement automated functional tests for our frontend and backend written with Javascript and Java.

Your Profile

Your profile:

  • Experience: you have 3+ years of experience in Quality Assurance. You have worked in a cross-functional team in an Agile setup before.
  • Toolbox: you have coding skills with Java and Javascript, and you want to develop these further. You have practical experience with tools like Selenium, Postman or PAW, Jmeter, CircleCI or Jenkins and GIT.
  • Customer focus: when you analyze risks and provide critical feedback about feature design, you have the customer perspective in mind.
  • Team orientation and impact: you like to speak your mind; you know the importance of Quality Assurance in the team, and you talk about it. You also act on it! You want to be involved in the development process from its earliest stages. You are OK to fail, and you learn from it.

Remote work:

Our offices remain open, but you are free to work from home, from any location in Germany. Due to the pandemic situation, we do not have in-person team meetings. It is entirely up to you if you want to pop into the office every now and again, or if you work from home all the time.

We have anchor days on which every team member is asked to come to the office. Anchor days do not take place currently, due to the pandemic. In the future, we foresee one or two team meetings per month. This means that at some point in the future you will be asked to come to one of our offices (Cologne or Berlin) in person once or twice a month.

Our offer:

  • An agile and outcome-oriented organisation, where respect for talent and honest work are fundamental values.
  • Direct communication, respect and a collegial approach are vital points of our code of conduct.
  • We are a diverse, international team, and English is our working language.
  • Your growth helps our growth. We have a training budget dedicated to the engineering team, and it’s up to you to choose what conferences or workshops you spend it on.
  • In case you want to learn German, we support you with free German classes.
  • You can devote 10% of your working time to personal development projects. Be it things that are close to your heart, Quality Assurance community tasks, or tackling a problem that you wouldn’t deal with otherwise.
  • For parents, we offer a monthly subsidy for kindergarten.
  • 28 days vacation per year.
  • 10% employee discount on all over the counter and beauty & wellness products in our online store.
