About the Role

At HqO we’re helping to redefine QA’s role in Agile SAAS development. We’re moved beyond testing to become the quality problem-solving team. We always look for the best ways to make valuable contributions, question assumptions, and focus on long-term solutions instead of short-term workarounds. We have an equal and trusted partnership with the product, delivery, development, and customer teams to deliver great software, improve development processes, and ensure our customers have the best experience in the market. With continual new challenges to solve, we invest in developing the technical and non-technical skills in the team to deliver innovative solutions.

At HqO the difference between making good software and making great software, more quickly, and more satisfyingly is our QA team. That can mean a QA specialist pairing with developers to teach them how to better perform exploratory testing one day, coding tools to solve quality problems the next, developing and extending automation test frameworks, then working with managers to improve development processes after that.

As QA Lead you'll play a crucial part in everything we do to improve quality, speed up development time, and ship better products more consistently. You'll be working in a rapidly growing, Agile development environment. You'll work directly with engineering leads on innovative projects and products, whilst collaborating closely with Product Managers, Designers, Delivery Managers, and customer teams.
