About our testing department
A company provides graphics software that performs most of the painstaking work of creating data-driven slides for professional Excel and PowerPoint users. As part of our technical support team, the testing department checks for usability and understandability of new features. It is up to the testing department to find out if features are available for all use cases.
Since our company is seamlessly integrated into Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel, we have to pay close attention to our compatibility with the supported Microsoft Office products and Microsoft Operating Systems, and their respective updates. It is up to the testing department to review those updates, install and test them in detail. As a software tester at our company, you will help improve products that over 1 000,000 professionals world-wide rely on.
About this job
A company is constantly being developed, and you get to ensure the proper functioning of all new features. This includes not only checking for faults but also for logical consistency and intelligibility of our products. Every time we issue a new version, which we regularly do, it is up to you to perform a final release test.
As you cannot constantly test every single feature, we have developed automatic test routines. It will be an important part of your job to maintain, develop and enhance these automatic tests.
Every time an error occurs within our software, regardless of whether you, a customer or a colleague found it, we require a detailed and reliable reproduction of the error to fully understand, and subsequently resolve, the problem. You will be responsible for delivering the details that make it possible for us to reproduce the problem with ease on another computer. Your clarity of communication is crucial in allowing the problem to be fixed, so strong written communication skills is a must.
Our testing department also writes error reports in our internal system that document the error and everything related to it. After the error has been resolved by our developers, it is up to you to check if the problem has really disappeared. You will also be responsible for deepening our internal Knowledge Base to capture the ever evolving functionality of our product.
As our testers independently structure their work, we are looking for applicants with a high level of self-motivation. Some experience with Microsoft Office, particularly with PowerPoint and Excel, is a plus. We will be happy to teach you the rest. This position requires that you are fluent in both written and spoken English. Our testing department is still growing. This allows you to influence and build up your own working environment.
We offer flexible, family-friendly working hours and a permanent job with competitive pay. Don’t forget the in-office snacks and modern office located in the central historic district of Berlin!
