[{{ $ctrl._job.status.name | translate}}] Software Test Engineer


Job description

Headquartered at The Rocks in Sydney, we're the leading cloud platform provider for the hotel industry across the world. Since 2006 our founders have been quietly disrupting the multi-trillion-dollar travel industry by introducing a concept that would make tech accessible to every hotel in the world. 33,000 hotel customers later, we haven’t looked back. Our legacy as an undisputed leader in hotel technology has seen us rank among the 20 greatest pioneering techs to come out of Australia, we’re a six-time Deloitte Tech Fast 50 winner and the first Aussie-headquartered investment for Silicon Valley-based TCV, which has backed the likes of Facebook, Netflix and Spotify.

Engineering is a core part of who we are; every year our systems process tens of millions of reservations across 160 countries. It's an exciting time here as we're transforming to build a 100% API-driven, containerised product ecosystem. Today, our front end is written in Vue and our back end tackles Node, Java and Ruby. We're exploring the world of microservices, GraphQL and AWS product suite.

Currently we are looking for an Automation Test Engineer to help us deliver high-quality software in a truly agile fashion.
