Are you up for the Software Development Champion's League?

Are you passionate about IT and want to build cool stuff that has an impact on how many people every day? Do you get a kick from developing state-of-the-art software? Are you up for a real challenge and are you - or do you have the potential to become - a really world-class software engineer or IT professional? Then please read on, because this may be the opportunity you have been craving for....

We are a leading software firm and cloud solutions provider (SAAS) with millions of daily users. Headquartered in Holland, our "Youforce" platform helps more than 1500 clients with Human Capital Management (HCM) - ranging from standard payroll for more than 25% of the entire Dutch workforce to advanced & funky eHRM (Human Resource Management) applications that enable global clients to find, hire and further develop their talent and succeed in tomorrow's economy. Human Resources along with technology are fast becoming the two most important factors in any company which is exactly why what we make matters...

We have almost 1000 employees, including more than 200 software developers, in various development centres across the globe and have recently established a major hub right in Madrid to enable us to develop a new platform and better solutions that really rock our industry... Raet is not a start-up nor is it a mammoth  so we can offer a long-term career path whilst embracing  agility and entrepreneurship as fundamental parts of our DNA: we think we are right-sized and are looking for you to help strengthen that "can-do" spirit.

As such, we are looking for several Test Engineers  for our European Development Centre in Madrid who will be responsible for the translation of acceptance criteria to actual test cases and the implementation of those test cases during the development process - all while anticipating the end user moves and most valued paths of choice to use the functionality of Youforce. Subsequently, you are responsible for the execution of test cases to assure the quality of our software whilst constantly reporting test results to the different stakeholders. We embrace agility, and apply the SAFe framework to ensure we scale our agile practices across our portfolio.

Technical skills we look for include (ideally you possess these - or you have a demonstrated ability to acquire them quickly and excel in using/applying them):

  • Hands-on experience with XP engineering practices and scrum
  • Advanced expertise in at least several of the following:  TMap Next Foundation or ISTQB, experience with automated testing (preferably MTM), basic SQL knowledge, testing non-functional requirements (e.g. security).

As a member of a self-organizing Scrum team, you help decide how work is addressed and optimally distributed among the team members. Whilst keeping a clear  focus on delivering committed results as a team, you assume full responsibility for delivering your assignments and are comfortable with taking over tasks originally assigned to other colleagues. You feel responsible towards end-users and reach out when they need your help. You make full use of the freedoms given to "do your thing" and to be innovative in creating new technology whilst sticking fully to common promises made towards your colleagues & the organization. At the same time, you help improve our best practices and are constantly looking to make them even better.

Especially from seniors, we also expect them to:

  • Guide and coach team-members as a subject matter expert 
  • Design information, application and technical architectures - adhering to and improving Youforce's enterprise architecture
  • Design and develop new systems or drastically enhance existing ones, in close collaboration with other team members incl. the Product Owner - this includes determining program requirements and procedures for software maintenance
  • Deliver input for tenders and specific client contracts
  • Report on progress of work to Scrum Master
  • Participate in knowledge "guilds"  and actively share and develop knowledge on software development, professional development, software quality, new technology, new tools and techniques and training

If you combine this expertise with a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctoral degree, then this will be a plus that will be fully recognized. However, some of you may have acquired world-class expertise in another manner, and that is also fine. In addition, any previous experience with HCM software is an asset. You also have no issue spending significant amounts of time in Holland during your first few months at Raet to accelerate knowledge transfer.
