Test automation Engineer / SDET

Your mission

Parkos is expanding and we are looking for a Test automation Engineer. Do you have experience in setting up automated tests at a high quality e-commerce platform?

About Parkos
Parkos is the platform for finding and booking parking spots near airports. When Parkos started we were offering parking spots at Schiphol. Now, eight years later, we are servicing hundreds of thousands of customers at airports all over the world, such as The Netherlands, Belgium, France, the United States, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Australia, and Germany. Our customers go to the Parkos website, compare and then book a parking spot with one of Parkos' 1000+ parking partners. Parkos and our development team is expanding, so we are currently looking for a Test automation Engineer.

About the role and team

Parkos (HQ based in the Netherlands) is a fast-growing platform for airport parkings. We have grown more than 100% every last 5 years. The next step for Parkos is to be world's No. 1 platform for parkings at airports. To be able to reach that goal, more and more features need to be implemented and more different stakeholders are involved. The current Laravel codebase has reached its limits, is too slow, not decoupled and difficult to maintain with larger teams. Therefore we are moving to microservices!


1) Implement and maintain automation backlog - Our system will be refactored and split up into smaller, independent services. At the same time our application needs to stay up and running. It's no longer possible to test all our flows manually. This is a challenge and requires high quality automated tests for our critical path. We created a backlog of most important automated tests that we require. We need you to implement them.

At the same time we want to be sure the test automation solution and strategy stays up-to-date and hence we need you to gain overall knowledge of our business and systems to help understand and maintain the backlog.

2) Assist developers - Splitting our app opens the opportunity to test independent components more easily. We would like to build a better code coverage and would like to have your testing mindset to help developers when setting up their unit- and integration tests.
