Test Automation Engineer

Job description

TL;DR: fast-growing health tech company (AI for stroke detection), Amsterdam, 55-95k euros, Python.


  1. When a patient with stroke symptoms arrives at a hospital, the patient's brain is scanned and uploaded into our cloud.

  2. We immediately run AI algorithms detecting stroke location (if any) and type.

  3. The result is uploaded back into the hospital, sent as an email, displayed in our mobile applications and web interface.

Product values

  • Performance: every saved minute of processing saves one month of the patient's life.

  • Accuracy: AI analysis results affect what treatment the patient will get if any.

  • Reliability: human lives depend on our product, so it must be always accessible and every result must be reproducible.

  • Compliance: our product is a medical device, and so it must comply with a lot of regulations.

Your daily work

Your job is to improve the system's reliability and compliance. You'll be automating:

  • Acceptance tests: converting user requirements into automated tests.

  • Integration tests: the system includes a lot of different components (some of them are third-party), and for every release, we must ensure all components interoperate as expected.

  • Unit tests: we already have some automated tests but we always strive for better coverage.

  • Reports generation: results for all tests we do must be represented in a form suitable for presenting to external auditors.

Our values

These are the engineering values that we expect you to share:

  • Strive for progress not perfection.

  • Automate everything.

  • Keep tests reliable, atomic, fast, and reproducible.

  • Refactoring should be safe and easy.
