About the job
Make a difference to the customers of Albert Heijn as our new QA Engineer for our mobile Flutter apps. These apps are used by millions of users in the Netherlands. Being a QA Engineer means your ultimate goal is to ensure that only the most reliable code makes it to production. Being part of an Agile team, you can set up the tests in such a way that the team can deliver high quality software to production. You do this by knowing the ins and outs of our applications. You work together with developers in your team to ensure the fastest possible feedback. With your experience with test automation and requirements analysis, you marshal your team in the right direction. 


The team
This position is for our Food First Lifestyle coach app. An app that is written from the ground in Flutter. With the help of this app we make a healthier lifestyle more easier. With simple exercises, multiple video’s and exercises we offer a complete app for a more healthier lifestyle.


Your challenge
As QA Engineer in the Food First team you’re helping the mobile team with ensuring a quality first mindset. You’re working with the newest test automation tooling and are not afraid to write automated test scripts yourself. You run these tests on your machine in an emulator, or as part of the CI/CD processes. Being a test engineer, you also know your way around with generic testing frameworks like Appium, Selenium, Cypress or RestAssured and have experience with working in Github.


Next to your technical skills, you are also able to translate complex requirements into clear acceptance criteria that are the basis for tests. You preferably are familiar with BDD and know how to apply this to your refinement and test process. After all testing is a team effort, and as a test engineer you play a significant role in helping the team to have the right focus on quality.


In short; as a QA Engineer you:
•    Can coach your team in a quality first mindset
•    Support in the requirement process
•    Can write automated tests with the focus on Flutter and Mobile. 
•    Help other team members to expand their technical testing skills
•    Know when to apply different types of tests and form an approach
•    Can setup and run tests in a CI/CD environment
•    Have a deep knowledge of Agile practices (specifically scrum)
•    Are the bridge between the business and developers

Albert Heijn goes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So for millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand.

Over 1,000 stores? Check. The leading online food retail platform? Check, we build, run and love it. ;-)

So what’s next? Accelerating our transition into a hybrid Food & Tech company is.
