<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A rapidly growing software company is looking for a Senior Quality Assurance Engineer who will have the opportunity to build out automation test frameworks within the engineering team, whilst taking into consideration the adoption of the shift left approach by identifying defects and bugs as early as possible.&nbsp;</span></p>

<h2><strong>Changing the world of pet food for good</strong></h2>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’re tails.com, a dog food subscription company with a big difference. We create truly tailored food for each and every dog we serve. We start by asking people a few simple questions about their dog. Then we use that information to create their dog’s unique tails.com recipe – so their dog gets exactly the nutrition they need, in the taste they love, delivered to their door every month. It’s clever stuff.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’ve got ambitious plans. Having created an entirely new category in pet food, we’re now scaling fast in the UK and Europe – backed by Purina, one of the world’s largest pet food companies. You’ll join a bunch of smart people working towards the same goals – and a bunch of smart-ish dogs, all working on their own thing.&nbsp;</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Together, we’ll change the world of pet food for good.</span></p>

<h2>tails.com&nbsp;QA team</h2>

<h2>Build our brand</h2>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We’re building an international brand, fast. We set ambitious goals. We challenge and support each other in equal measure.

And then we go for lunch.</span></p>
