Codat is a venture-funded technology company founded in January 2017, with the aim of making up-to-date data on SMEs available to third parties. We are currently a team of seventeen, working out of our comfortable offices in Clerkenwell in Central London, and our business is growing rapidly. We are passionate about our mission, and our software engineering team is central to our success in achieving this. As our team is still relatively small, we place high importance on attitude and future potential.
As Codat’s core product is a SaaS platform, accessed via our API, the quality of our technology is of critical importance. Our microservices architecture is built in C#.NET, and is hosted on Microsoft Azure. We leverage Azure Service Bus, SQL Server and Blob storage to ingest and process large amounts of data reliably and efficiently. We use NUnit and Machine.Specifications to unit test our backend code. Our front-end is built in Angular, with end-to-end tests written in Protractor. We practice DevOps as a culture within our engineering teams, with engineers expected to take responsibility for writing automated tests and deploying code. We would expect any QA engineer to be an integrated part of the engineering team, and to have input at every stage of the software design, implementation and deployment process.
As the first full-time QA at Codat, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to take a leading role in shaping Codat’s long-term product testing and quality control strategy. In the long term this will lead to defining load test strategies, doing exploratory testing to improve overall quality and monitoring system performance.
