Lead Software Tester, Eniram

Eniram is committed to helping shipping companies save fuel by using vessel performance data to reduce consumption: our servers crunch millions of data measurements every day across hundreds of ships sailing around the world, and our data insight and algorithms help them achieve optimal hydrodynamic performance. With our unique technology, the worlds’ largest cruise ships reduce their CO2 emissions and LNG ships reach their destinations with maximal fuel efficiency and safety.
For us, it is cutting edge technology. For our customers and competitors, it is magic.

Eniram is an independent business entity owned and supported by Wärtsilä. We employ 145 professionals and we have offices in Finland (HQ in Helsinki), Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, UK and US.

We are now looking for a Lead Software Tester to join Technology department consisting of scrum teams, designers and domain experts located in our offices in The Netherlands and Finland.
Application deadline 2017-10-08
Position description “Hands-on Test Guru, ready to lead the way in testing groundbreaking solutions deployed on the biggest ships in the world”

You are the highly pro-active test professional that will join us in running the next level of testing for our onboard data-capturing-and-sharing-platform, ensuring releases of the Eniram Platform go as smooth as they possibly can. If you are the lead tester that wants to drive the testing of your own scrum team and share your skills and insights with the rest of our testers and developers, please don’t hesitate to respond!

There are two sides to your role. Your main task (70/60%) will be to create automated test sets together with the Platform Team’s Developers and Testers. These you embed in our continuous release chain, to enable blazing fast feedback to your development colleagues after each build. Your secondary and just as important task (30/40%) is being the driving force on Testing in a growing Guild of Test and DevOps Professionals within Eniram. We aim at quick insight in the quality of releases and shielding of our customers from preventable problems.

Within the Platform Team, you are the team’s conscience with regards to clean administration and correct sharing of information. This helps us to achieve the goal of generatable reports/documentation and to save on unnecessary unclarities further up the chain. Together we build solutions you can be proud of beyond your professional life. Your work for instance directly affects the CO2 emissions of a fleet of many hundreds of ocean-going ships.
