At GWI we’re always looking for extraordinary people who thrive on making an extraordinary impact. Right now we’re looking for a Software Engineer in Test to play a key role in our QA department in Athens. If that’s you, and making a difference gets you out of bed in the morning, keep reading. It could be the start of something, well, extraordinary.

Sounds great, what will I be doing? 🤔

As our Software Engineer in Test you’ll be responsible for delivering high quality for our customers through the use of test automation processes and DevOps practises. We are using the latest technologies to achieve shift-left testing and we want you to join our wonderful team to empower our tech stack and make an impact on the overall continuous delivery.

Not to mention our passion with Test Automation, as we are the main organizers for Athens SDET Meetup to give you a hint that we like to share our technical knowledge with the tech communities!

It’s also fun; shaking things up is what working for a growing company is all about. So you’ll need to be flexible, comfortable with continuous change, and working in a high-tempo environment as we grow.

What do I need to bring with me? 🧳

You’ll need to be able to demonstrate the core skills this role requires. You don't have to tick all the boxes right away; the important thing is that you’re willing to learn. Here’s what the team will be looking for:

👉 Knowledge of Test Automation Frameworks (preferred in Cypress and/ or Playwright)

👉 Experience in testing both backend APIs and frontend applications

👉 Experience in at least one industry standard CI/CD platform (Github Actions, Jenkins, CircleCI)

👉 Good understanding of testing microservices and micro frontends.

Nice to have

👉 Experience with GCP services

👉 Knowledge of Typescript

👉 Knowledge of performance testing tools (e.g k6.io, gatling)

👉 Experience with monitoring platforms (e.g Grafana, Prometheus, InfluxDB, Loki)

Equally important is attitude. We want people who think big (to make an impact), ask why (to find a better way), and show respect (to everyone, at every level, all the time). Those are our values, exemplified by our leadership team, and they’re a big part of what we’re looking for in you.

Interview steps 👟

👉Preliminary phone call with the Talent Team (no video required)

👉First video interview with the hiring managers

👉Second (and final*) video interview with the hiring panel, often including a presentation, followed by a values conversation with members of the wider GWI community.

*Don’t be alarmed if there are other stages in the process, it’s all part of the plan for some of our roles.
