Job Description

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future – for a better working life! In our Barcelona office, we are looking for an experienced and passionate Agile Tester to be part of a new engineering team. Within our team, you will work on existing and new products that engage users to communicate offline and online.

At XING Events located in Munich and Barcelona we are responsible for the events and communities part of the XING social network. Our goal is to create valuable experiences for our users by engaging with other users, either in an offline event or meeting, or in one of our many online communities. For that we are offering e.g. the events market (xing.com/events), the communities (xing.com/communities) and also an online event ticketing solution (en.xing-events.com/our-services/ticketing). We are a XING SE subsidiary currently employing around 80 people. Always keeping our vision in mind: “For people moments that matter”.

  •  You are a clear and precise communicator who is alert and proactive
  • Ideally you have an engineering background, but that is not mandatory.
  • You are keen to keep on learning about technical topics and also happy to share your knowledge and experience.
  • You always know one more way to improve things –and you know when "good" is "good enough".
  • You should have first experience with web development tools and architecture, version control systems (e.g. Git) and continuous integration (e.g. Jenkins).
  • You should have first experience with automated testing with e.g. Selenium, Capybara, meaning you can do the coding that is necessary for that
