QA Automation Engineer
Full Time
Software Engineering

Help our customers do extraordinary things and see your skills make a real difference to some of the world's best-known companies!


About the role

QA Engineers at Ascent are part of cross-functional teams, working on development projects to help our customers use software and data better. QA Engineers might work on multiple projects at a time, so there is great variety in our roles, and an opportunity to have a real impact. 

Joining Ascent means you're coming to a Microsoft Partner firm, where your technical development will be really well supported. And, we work in a hybrid style, so you can mix working from home with time at the office and get the best of both!

What you'll do

We are looking for QA engineers with some experience in automation to join our high-performing Group Engineering teams. You will work on broad and interesting projects - here are some of the things you'll do:

• Enable the continuous improvement of the quality and reliability of solutions delivered by the development team

• Design and create automated test suites (Unit, Component, and End-to-End)

• Optimize, expand and monitor the results of existing test suites

You will work closely with Product Managers to define and clarify requirements and implement CI/CD processes for the scheduled execution of test suites. We work in a predominantly Agile style, and so you'll be expected to contribute to creating the best practices and approaches for the team for the QA requirements in each project.

Skills and Experience

We're looking for QA Engineers with role experience that includes some automation work. Ideally, you'll be able to show:

  • Skills in building automated testing frameworks, and hands-on experience with C # Selenium Web Driver, NUnit, XUnit, and Git
  • Solid understanding of QA methodologies, testing techniques, and the full software development lifecycle
  • Experience with Continuous integration and building tools

You need to have experience with accessibility and security tools and a good overall knowledge of test management and bug tracking tools and have worked with both relational and non-relational databases. 

We love to work with collaborative, supportive colleagues who have a growth mindset and a proactive, can-do attitude to work. Excellent English communication capability, both written and verbal is crucial for these roles.

Working at Ascent

This is a hybrid role, where you can spend time at the office or work from home. At Ascent, your development and learning will be taken seriously, and we'll support your professional development with training and certification, with regular feedback and review.

In Bulgaria, we offer a really competitive salary, a comprehensive social benefits package, and a really energetic company culture with get-togethers, team-building trips, and a supportive, people-first approach to managing our team. 

Ascent is an equal opportunities employer. We take intentional steps to ensure inclusion and belonging are something real here, not just something we talk about. No person will be treated less favorably because of their gender, pregnancy, and maternity status, marital or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, race, nationality, ethnic origin, age, religion or belief, or disability status. If you require any reasonable accommodation, please let us know when you apply.

Why join Ascent?

We’re fast becoming a leading European digital transformation business.

Joining Ascent means you’ll be involved in delivering exciting technology projects for leading global brands. You’ll be part of a growing team of super-talented people who are actively choosing to join us on our journey rather than working in big corporates.

Your voice matters at Ascent. We are always keen to hear your opinions and those ideas that come to you at 3am (some of them are definitely as good as they seemed at the time). You’ll develop your talent through our internal Academy, providing a wide range of personal development, up-skilling and cross-skilling opportunities.
