Working Student (m/f/x) Agile Tester

At XING, we value the art of continuous improvement. Agile testers work directly within the development teams and are our voice of quality and continuous improvement. They play an active part in releasing the software to our end users, and they help understand the end-user perspective. Agile testers share the improvements and lessons learned with the company, for a better-working software. Popular technologies and tools like Ruby on Rails, React, MySQL, Git, Jenkins, Selenium, Calabash, Capybara, RSpec, Chrome DevTools, are used.

  • Contribute throughout the product development lifecycle: from product planning to releasing to production and monitoring the live environments.
  • Use testing infrastructure, data and tools to perform manual / exploratory or automated testing.
  • Make quality issues and concerns visible and help others understand the risks for and impact on our end users.
