Smart, innovative, and growing
What if we told you that you could be part of a world-leading and growing software company? And not only that, but you could also play a key role in our future growth and technologies? Well, we hope you’d be very interested - this role will be based in either fabulous Welly or Palmerston North, a region which is fast becoming a key tech hub.
At Author-it (ASC) we provide an innovative cloud-based content development platform that lets businesses create, use and share content and critical documentation from anywhere in the world, and right now, with offices in Wellington, Palmerston North, Seattle and Amsterdam, we’re ready to grow again.
Play a role where you’ll make a real impact.
As we spread the reach of our platforms here in NZ, we need the best people behind the scenes, making sure our products are better than ever. Right now, we need a experienced software tester to help deliver the changes we’ve planned for our product roadmap.
Writing test cases, planning and running tests and producing quality reports on each step along the way, you’ll learn your way around our products with your eyes closed. With an eye for detail and a keen intuition for how software works, you’ll spot defects from a mile off. Working with engineers and testers from across the business, you’ll also help deliver on our testing strategy, run testing projects and help peer review others test cases and provide feedback.
Your unique skills will be valued.
Love puzzles? The more difficult and complex, the better? We thought so.
You’re proactive. The kind of motivated problem solver that tackles a new challenge head-on. You love finding the cracks and predicting where they’ll soon appear. You'll likely have experience working in a SaaS product business, and will be used to using agile practices to think iteratively through the testing/QA dimensions of software products and ship goals. You’re familiar with automation concepts (with an insight into when they should and shouldn't be applied) and defect tracking systems, and will ideally have experience with a handful of the following:
- Cloud-based SaaS software.
On top of all that, you’re great with words. Your reports are sharp and a breeze to read, and you communicate effectively with anyone and everyone.
Challenge yourself to step up.
Got ideas? Great. We can’t wait to hear them. We’re after people ready to bring a new spin to the way we do things.
This is a chance to move into that role where you’ll be a key player – taking the lead in the testing approach for one of our core products. Above all, we value passion, enthusiasm and commitment to good results – so if you’ve got some solid test automation experience, take a step up into this role and we’ll support you every step of the way.
Be supported to grow.
We’ve set our sights on becoming one of the world’s leading providers in the Component Authoring Tech sector, and with the right people on our team, we’ll get there fast. The leaders of NZ-based technical team are at the top of their game and will support you to get to the top of yours.
