Job Type:Full Time

Nearmap is currently providing a virtual model of the real world – at a scale and detail that hasn’t been done before. At Nearmap, we have an appetite for high performing individuals, and we are currently searching for an additional Senior QA Engineer.

As Senior QA Engineer you will work across two teams and products. The first team is only just getting started and is based around 3D roof geometry extraction. The other is an established team with an existing QA engineer. You will assist them in testing our core product; Mapbrowser, which is a web-based application that allows users to interact with high resolution aerial imagery, both 2D and 3D. Mapbrowser includes a large number of inbuilt tools which assist the end user in their everyday tasks. You will be responsible for testing new features and fixes within this product and contributing to our suite of automated Selenium regression tests.

We use an open-minded agile approach to software development and are always looking for ways to improve our processes. As a member of the QA team your opinion and ideas will be valued, and you will have the opportunity to grow and make impactful decisions.
