We value diversity and endorse an open-minded collaborative working environment. We are a company with integrity at our core. HID Global is an ASSA ABLOY Group Brand.

The position:

For our growing creative team we are looking for a  talented Senior Software Test Engineer. The position also offers an opportunity to evolve to a Team Leader position. You will work on technically challenging and interesting tasks in the field of software for biometric systems (fingerprints, face recognition etc.). The work includes the complete test lifecycle of our software (e.g. device drivers, biometric libraries, middleware, interconnected systems, in small extent also applications or server/cloud software) and embedded software/firmware running on our devices.

As we need to support software testing on multiple operating systems (especially Windows and Linux) and with multiple types of devices, there is a strong emphasis on automated testing. Our desire is to automate all software testing as much as feasible. We will expect you to write tests and test scripts in C/C++ and Python.

If you like this kind of versatile, non-boring job, want to work with friendly people in a nice environment, appreciate the stability of a large multinational company without the usual rigidity, and want to see the results of your work  distributed all over the globe, send us your application.

Some of your tasks will include:

  • Strongly contribute to the whole software test lifecycle – create test plans and specifications to test all design requirements, implement and execute automated tests, document test results and provide test reports, evaluate code coverage, maintain test methodologies, participate on the software release process.
  • Automated tests are primarily written in C/C++ and test scripts in Python, you will need to master these languages.
  • Cooperate closely with software engineers on identifying, reproducing and resolving software problems.
  • Collaborate with other teams for system and interoperability testing.
  • Analyze and collect metrics on defects / defect patterns, to drive improvements in test coverage and product design to increase product quality and usability.
  • Where necessary, execute also manual test procedures (e.g. when searching for a way how to reproduce a problem).

What we are looking for

  • A fast learning, innovative and persistent person with wide interest in software testing and QA, identification and authentication.
  • Substantial experience in software testing, especially the automated test development and software test lifecycle.
  • Knowledge of various test/development methodologies such as BDD, TDD, Acceptance Testing, Unit Testing, System Testing, Performance Testing and Integration Testing.
  • Experience in writing tests in C/C++, Python or other standard programming languages. Please note that since our software has no GUI, the knowledge of GUI or Web test tools like Selenium or Robot Framework is not relevant.
  • At least basic knowledge of C/C++ and Python.
  • A good working knowledge of either Windows or Linux, and at least basic knowledge of the other OS. We expect the ability to prepare and configure test environment and execute tests on these systems.
  • Ability to complete tasks independently, with minimal supervision.
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills.
  • Precise, systematic and organized work style. Attention to detail, reliability, dependability.
  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree (Master’s degree preferred) in relevant field of study.
  • Experience: Minimum 3 years (MA) or 5 years (BA).

Why Should You Apply?

  • Competitive salary package and yearly bonus
  • Stable employment in a friendly international atmosphere
  • Flexible working hours
  • In-house free English classes
  • Multisport cards
  • Training budget
  • Lunch discounts
  • Ergonomic workplaces with all necessary tools and equipment
