As a Software Tester, you will form part of a dedicated Product Development project team, focusing on a single product and applying the Scrum/Agile methodology. Within this team, the decision to approve the release of new software will rest with you; that is a big responsibility! A total of 20 software testers will collaborate with a workforce of 100 software engineers (divided into scrum teams) who are fully dedicated to the improvement of existing solutions and the devising and testing of new solutions. As part of your team, you will be collaborating intensively with Embedded Software Engineers.
