We’re looking for a talented Quality Assurance (QA) professional to join our growing team. 

APlanet is an award-winning startup on a mission to help organisations manage and improve their sustainability performance. We do this by empowering sustainability and CSR professionals and teams with innovative software tools that allow them to increase the social and environmental value their organisations bring to society.

You will be part of the Product and Technology to bring to life stunning products that solve needs and provide value to our customers.

You will have a unique opportunity to work with top professionals within an emerging sector that is here to stay.

Our stack

We have a modern stack with no legacy code (for now!).

We use these frameworks because we think they are the most appropriate to solve our client’s challenges in their journeys to become more sustainable. Having said that, our stack is a team decision and we are always open to different opinions and approaches.

How we work

  • Lean methodology: we use iterative strategies. Our team builds to add value, whether to solve problems for our clients or internal ones. 
  • Design thinking: we create simple prototypes and user tests because before we commit to building something, we need to understand what we’ll need. You will have the chance to be involved in this phase of the product design. However, if you prefer to just focus on coding, that’s fine with us too.
  • Flexible processes: forget about strict processes and structures. Our team is constantly in contact with stakeholders and we decide for ourselves how we are organized.
  • Quality: all the code we provide must be well-structured, efficient, and easy to maintain, however, we’re not obsessed with metrics. The best quality standard is for your coworkers to be able to understand your code and work with it. 
  • Open Source Philosophy: we use OSS when possible, and contribute our improvements back upstream. Once our codebase is mature enough, we plan to release the pieces that could be useful for the community.

What we look for

APlanet is a team of the best professionals in each area, with a shared passion for applying what we do best to help organisations create positive social and environmental impact.

  • Strong product management experience, preferably in B2B SaaS products. Experience leading all product phases. 
  • We are looking for a person who loves the products we build at APlanet and who cares about making sure they are of the highest quality for our customers.
  • Passion for detail, a methodical person with a love for things well done.
  • Love for tech and product design. 
  • Commitment and ownership. Someone who is autonomous in their decision-making.
  • Fluency in English and Spanish. Additional languages such as Portuguese, Italian or French will be a plus.

What you will do

  • Make sure that APlanet tech products comply with company quality assurance standards.
  • Carefully maintain a complaint and nonconformance processing through tracking systems, including root cause and corrective actions.
  • Develop new standards and processes for product development, with improvements as needed, and create testing protocols. Implement QA automations.
  • Pursue that communication channels, processes, training, and continuous education on quality standards are in place in the company to maintain a culture of Quality Assurance implicit in all colleagues.

What we offer
