QA / Test Engineer (Manual, Automation, Mobile) - ~The Perfectionist~
Salary + Equity
Imagine a job where you can build anything you dream. Imagine Curve.
Curve is growing - join our adventurous startup!
What You’ll be doing: Quality Assurance plays an important role in our product development. As The Perfectionist you will be expected to help ensure the reliability of the product. We expect you to think differently, smarter, so you can dream up all the test cases, especially those edge cases that no one can see until we start getting bug reports from our users.
Have you thought about how fast money moves around the world? And, how fast technology is changing the world?
Can you imagine how challenging it is being responsible for ensuring the quality of a revolutionary product that is bringing these two worlds together? Are you ready to ensure the product matches its requirements (functional, design, UX, etc…) and contribute great ideas on how to make it even more valuable for our users?
Mission: Curve is on a mission to simplify the way people spend, send, see and save money. We are focused on an ambitious opportunity fuelled by a couple of trends starting to play out in the market, from fragmentation of financial services to new convergence layers for the customer experience. We believe the end-game will be a connected world of money, tailored individually for each customer. As such, we're building a new category - a digital banking platform.
We've started by tapping into the most frequent job users do with their money - Spending - by creating a better way to pay, leveraging Curve's unique technology. Our focus in the next 18 months is to keep improving the spending proposition, while introducing connections and automations across the various jobs of money by providing our customers with a significantly better experience.
