Who are we?
Airship is an established SaaS (software as a service) company based in Sheffield. We have two products that serve the best and most exciting brands in the UK hospitality industry - think Revolution, Byron, The Alchemist, Leon, Turtle Bay, Franco Manca, Zizzi and many more.
We’re looking for a Quality Engineer to join our established development team. The position is remote-first and we’re open to some flexible working, so you’re not tied to the office.
Our development team are proud to be the 2021 winners of the UK Dev Awards “Best Dev Team of the Year”, and we are looking to welcome someone aboard to help strengthen our team even further.
Your role will kick off with mastering our overall product architectures, shadowing other developers and learning the ropes. You’ll immediately drop into our sprint kick-offs and stand-ups so you have exposure to our processes and learn how we work and who we are.
Once you’ve found your feet and know your way around our products, you’ll start collaborating with the team, working closely with our Head of Engineering, ultimately ensuring that the new features we release have good test coverage and are well-placed to remain reliable as our products continue to evolve.
Your role will revolve around performing manual tests of new features, regression testing existing functionality, making sure new code is written with testing in mind, and authoring new functional test cases. You’ll also work closely with UX and customer success teams to ensure newly delivered features meet customer needs and are consistent across our products.
You’ll care deeply about learning your craft as well as contributing to the success of our products. You’ll no doubt have some of your own personal and professional projects under your belt to show off your technical interests and proven track record, and probably be somewhat obsessed with writing readable, secure, accessible, testable, standards-compliant code.
You’ll be familiar with automated testing frameworks such as PHPUnit and Jest, along with other testing tools such as Cypress and Selenium. You will have a good understanding of writing clearly structured, maintainable tests that deliver maximum code coverage.
A graduate degree is not a necessity. We welcome applications from self-taught developers and graduates alike.
Benefits & culture
We work (global pandemics-aside) from our custom fitted out offices in the iconic Park Hill, right next to Sheffield Train station. We have views over the city, green spaces front and back and plenty of space.
We equip everyone with a Macbook as standard (but if you’d rather work on something else, we won’t force you!).
There is an EMI share options scheme in place for employees, so our gain is your gain too.
We are very open to flexible and remote working, so if you’re interested but not able to work in the office everyday, you can work remotely instead and we can meet up now and again for some team contact days (for this reason, we’d prefer if you were somewhere in the UK).
Where can I find more information?
The best place to start is by checking us out on our two product websites:
