About the role
The engineering team at Koa (around 25 at the moment) has been growing slowly for the past three years, and after our successful round of investment last year we are looking to grow even more this year, with lots of new challenges.
You will join as the fourth member of the QA team, but also as part of a multidisciplinary team working on Foundations.
Within the QA team, you will be expected to collaborate on defining and implementing a testing strategy throughout the different products in the company that will contribute to the OKRs of the business. The team meets every week for alignment and you will have their support as well as your tech lead’s guiding and mentoring, but you will also be expected to be proactive and take responsibility for the work you do in your product team.
As part of the product team for Foundations, you will be working on our first commercial product (B2B2C) that was successfully launched in January 2020 and is helping people manage their stress and build resilience through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Over the last year, the team has been slowly refining and improving the product, both from a functional and technical perspective, but we have great challenges to scale and consolidate it with new clients and we need someone that can collaborate with the developers and product owner to strengthen the quality of the product.
