QA Tester

UK – Full time
We’re looking for a QA Tester to join the Kobas team.

Strictly no agencies. Really. No agencies at all, whatsoever. Candidates must have the right to work in the UK.

About Kobas

The Kobas team provides Software-as-a-Service to the hospitality industry, transforming operational routines from dull, spreadsheet-based grind to quick, point-and-click management, across our core product pillars: In-Venue, Operations, Customers, Teams and Insights. Our software helps businesses process millions of pounds of sales each year. We unite with our clients so that they can benefit from our industry-leading technology, as well as ensuring that best practices can be followed, sharing knowledge amongst our clients, providing insight, and achieving maximum ROI.

About the role

We are currently searching for an enthusiastic QA Tester to join the Kobas team. We are looking for someone with experience in QA to help us ensure the quality of code and features in our product. You’ll work directly with our production team to design and develop test suites involving all the components of the Kobas platform.

Kobas is staffed by a fully-remote, cross-functional team of experts in software engineering, DevOps, hospitality management and EPoS hardware. We have worked in a distributed manner for several years and we know how to make that work properly. We work flexibly and have team members across the UK, and in Romania.

This role is remote, but we are looking for applicants able to get into London when needed.

The role is permanent, subject to success in a 3-month contract period.

What we do

● Implement brand-new features and products, from detailed stock-control systems to a customer-facing online ordering with hundreds of thousands of users across the UK.
● Deliver continuous improvements across our platform. Our platform began twelve years ago, and it gets better every day. We release weekly and react quickly.
● Problem Solving: we solve big problems for our clients and that means we need big ideas from our team.
● Fix bugs: bugs, bugs, bugs!
● Develop API integrations with third-party providers to super-charge our platform and give our clients a single source of truth.


Whilst our team is fully remote, Kobas keeps two offices for our commercial teams, with whom we keep close ties, based in Borough, London, and Humberside. We work flexibly, but our general office hours are 09:30 – 18:00 UK time. For this role, we are looking for someone who is UK based.
