Junior QA Engineer

Job description

We are Chip and we're on a mission to build the best app to help our users to put money aside to enable them to do more with their money.

We use cutting edge tech and AI to shake up the slow, stagnant and old-fashioned market.

We’ve built a clever app that makes stashing cash easier, faster, and smarter. It makes your financial goals happen automatically and gets you feeling good about your money.

We’re growing fast and we have some very exciting plans. We’re looking for an Junior QA Engineer to help us make them happen.


We are looking for talented and dedicated Junior QA Engineer to help us build out a world beating feature set. Joining our engineering team and you’ll be responsible for testing new features and services to help us continue to deliver a great product to our customers that helps our company and their money grow.

What you can expect to be doing: 

  • Identify test scenarios, create test cases and document test results.
  • Write and maintain tests.
  • Estimate the testing required, reporting status and issues to line manager.
  • Deliver detailed test reports from the execution of automated test suites.
  • Document software faults and liaise with developers until the software is ready for release.
  • Perform detailed manual testing of in house applications and APIs using industry standard techniques

    What we’re looking for:

    • Proven aptitude for testing – Automation and Manual Testing.

      What we’re really looking for: ✍️

      Although we’re in the financial space, and under the scrutiny that comes with it, the current operations team works well together, and even sometimes with a smile. We’re sure you’ve got the technical skills, otherwise you would have stopped reading by now, so let us be clear in what will make us want to work with you.
      We want a real person, with interests outside of work, to join our work family. You could be a dancer, a gamer, a musician, a parent, a hockey fan, or even that one person that still writes Twilight fan-fiction. Doesn’t matter to us.

      At the interview stages will be looking for empathy, eq, fun stories, and ability to smile even when things are tough.
