The job

Only you can prevent errors in our software. Before any coding goes through to production, you have seen it, you have tested it and you have approved it. That is why they call you the ‘king/queen of testing’. 

We ask you to come join our web development scrum team. The team is counting on you to keep the complete overview of our software landscape. And to add structure to our testing activities. In more detail: You set guidelines for testing and use them together with your developers. You are familiar with the test pyramid and the tests that take place in the different layers. And you are also familiar with applying test automation. You always keep your team informed of what will be automated, where and when. You are the one always asking the important questions to make sure we are prepared for any bug or error in the software. You not only test in a browser, but you test isolated and directly with the services, databases and components. You share your knowledge and experience with the team and thus contribute to the improvement of our daily work. 

With your help, processes are streamlined, results are well documented and learning experiences are shared. This way we get better at what we do every day and we ensure the ultimate shopping-experience for our customers now and in the future.

As Agile Tester, make an impact at Albert Heijn by:

  • testing our software and learning from the outcomes.

  • continuously assessing the quality of our software.

  • being curious and asking critical questions like ‘what risks are there if this goes to production?’ and ‘are there possible problems with the solutions we are building?’.

  • intercepting possible threats and weaknesses in the software.

  • coordinating with your team about what needs to be done and sharing your findings based on facts.

  • enabling your team to grow together and add value to the business.
