Why engineers love working at ExpressVPN

  • We embrace technology: We work on the latest technologies and with some of the most brilliant minds in the field.
  • We test heavily: We don’t leave things to luck. We test our products to ensure quality delivery.
  • We do shift-left testing: We provide a test plan as soon as the sprint begins to develop tests first (TDD), so we can find bugs early in the process.
  • We run fast: Tests should provide meaningful feedback in a short amount of time and be stable at all times.

What you’ll do

  • Review user stories and requirements to create detailed, comprehensive, and well-structured tests, and decide where to test early in the sprint
  • Do impact analysis to understand risks and how to mitigate them
  • Estimate, prioritize, plan, and coordinate quality testing activities in and out of the scrum
  • Identify, document, and track bugs
  • Through exploratory testing, find the toughest bugs. We often have bugs that are non-trivial to reproduce because they depend heavily on the environment. By finding them and making them reproducible, we enable developers to fix them. We’re keen to find talent that’s especially adept at finding these hidden bugs.
  • Develop and apply testing processes to improve quality and velocity in the team
  • Track quality and velocity metrics: Be the “Quality Champion” in the scrum
  • Contribute to the automation coverage of the product by developing automation tests at various levels including building tools for testing.

You’ll help us 

  • Ensure quality: Drive escaping defects down by defining the relevant testing
  • Reduce our lead time: Find bugs early in the process by shifting testing left
  • Improve coverage: Define, track, and increase our testing coverage and confidence.
  • Escape defects: Understand where we fail and improve our testing to avoid it next time
