Senior Backend Software Engineer

A bit about us:

Virtuoso's mission is to enable and lead the world's quality-first revolution. The field of QA has not kept pace with the software industry's transition to CI/CD. We are fixing that.

Virtuoso has reimagined how software is tested by developing a game-changing platform that is already being used by the biggest names in software. We passionately believe that anyone should be able to create and maintain tests regardless of their technical skill, and that quality is a key driver for change and growth. The latest advances in AI and Machine Learning have been leveraged to produce test automation software that thinks like a human, empowers everyone to test, and for the first time delivers on the promise of codeless test automation. Achieving remarkable success has become a business-as-usual activity for us and we need to rapidly expand our team for that to continue to increase. Want to join the quality-first revolution? Then read on.

    About Virtuoso

    Virtuoso was developed by a team passionate about improving the quality of low-code/no-code test automation software without slowing down the development process. As work shifts more to the cloud and teams work remotely, on-premise software has become unwieldy and a bottleneck. We've reimagined test automation software by pioneering the next generation of low-code/no-code testing - all on the cloud. We believe anyone can test, and we're delivering on the promise of low-code/no-code test automation.
