Job Description

QA Manager

Job title: QA Manager

Location: London, Bristol, Edinburgh or Lisbon (including hybrid)

Salary: £57,500 - £77,500

Kaluza wants to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach, by building the platform that will accelerate a sustainable, affordable and resilient energy transition. It’s a huge challenge, but often the toughest problems are the most rewarding to solve.

Since launching in 2019, Kaluza’s technology has been empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers.

From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, our real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve and boosting engagement. And most importantly, they enable suppliers' customers to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.

Where in the world of Kaluza will I be working?

You’ll be joining Kaluza’s technology organisation as we work to expand beyond our 4 million end users in the UK by deploying our first Australian offering. We are a large team working alongside product managers. We’re pushing the boundaries of technology, working at an extraordinary scale. As a collective we strive for product greatness and ensuring we deliver excellent value to our customers.

What will I be doing?

We’re looking for an experienced software tester who is at home in an Agile environment, being embedded in a product development team, who has an inquisitive nature and desire to dig into the unknowns of the software.

You have a deep understanding of various testing approaches, especially tool-assisted exploratory testing. You are also comfortable with your skills and experience in testing continuously throughout the SDLC – testing the ideas for new features just as much as testing the designs, the code and the software itself, using a risk-based mindset for structuring your testing and technical skills to test at all layers of the application. And you feel comfortable talking about these testing activities too. 

 

Is this the job for me?

  • You are genuinely passionate about developing products that will positively impact over a million people and also our environment
  • You love working with teams and collaboratively building features that impact customers
  • You have a drive for building products with outstanding levels of quality, and work to embed appropriate quality practices to ensure this occurs
  • You believe strongly in test automation where it makes sense, continuous delivery and working with the best agile practices
  • You believe in the value of exploratory testing and the place it has in an agile development environment

What experience you'll need:

  • You’re an excellent software quality manager, with experience in building and running successful teams of testers
  • You have proven experience of creating and delivering test strategies for complex software systems
  • You know how to embed appropriate testing practices across a distributed engineering organisation, coaching testers to empower delivery teams to own the quality of their products
  • You have extensive experience in representing quality in an Agile environment and coaching a test-first mentality into delivery teams
  • You have experience using exploratory testing to iterate and find problems quickly as well as providing effective reporting across an organisation

 

Kaluza Values

Here at Kaluza we have five core values that guide us as a business: 

We’re on a mission, We build together, We’re inclusive, We get it done, We communicate with purpose.

Our values are not words on a wall — they are at the heart of our culture. They are how we make decisions and how we treat each other. They are concrete and clear, and reflect what we as people, and as a business, really care about.

Kaluza’s vision is to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach. Would you be interested in joining us to help achieve this?

 

From us you’ll get

  • An additional 9% of your salary to spend on a wide range of benefits, including your pension, a selection of lifestyle, health and green benefits, or simply take it as cash!
  • Private Medical Insurance and Life Assurance
  • 26 days holiday, including a day off for your birthday you can take at any point
  • Flexible bank holidays, 5 of which you can choose to take whenever you like (3 are fixed days)
  • Progressive leave policies with no qualifying service periods, including 26 weeks full pay if you have a new addition to your family
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • A dedicated personal learning budget
  • Flexible working — we trust you to work in a way that suits your lifestyle
  • And more...

Even better? You’ll have access to these benefits from day 1 when you join.

 

We want the best people

We’re keen to meet people from all walks of life — our view is that the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. We want to build teams which represent a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills, and we recognise talent on the basis of merit and potential.

We understand some people may not apply for jobs unless they tick every box. But if you're excited about joining us and think you have some of what we're looking for, even if you're not 100% sure, we'd still love to hear from you.
