Can you remember the keyword-chaoses in job advertisements? The feeling when the list of technologies to master is the longest part of the advertisement and you don’t apply, just because you don’t know all the mentioned letter combinations. Don’t worry, we believe that if you are a test automation expert, you’ll know everything you need to know.

  • On your behalf, we compensate the carbon footprint of an average person living in Finland
  • Possibility for remote work on our office in Malaga. During the pandemic we have a remote office at Ellivuori, Finland.
  • Possibility for child care for a sick child

What we require:

  • You’re a positive person who likes to work with different kinds of people
  • A genuine interest towards software development processes and the quality of software
  • When helping our customers, you don't merely think about technical solutions, but also consider the aspect of culture

Our recruitment process:

Our process is lean but thorough. The length of the process is largely depending on you. If you want, we can usually reach a decision in approximately one to two weeks. Here’s the process:

  • A culture-fit discussion with our people team (and possibly a technical colleague) in which, we’ll find out whether VALA would be a home for you where you can feel comfortable, find meaningful work, learn and flourish professionally. Moreover, we’ll find out whether you would be a person who can maintain or preferably enhance our culture and the wellbeing of others.
  • A coding test or similar for those who will need such skills in their work.
  • A second interview with our customer management team to figure out how VALA’s customer projects match your knowledge, wishes and interests.
"I have been working at VALA as a test automation developer since 2019. Technologies used may vary but usually the job includes test automation frameworks, different programming and scripting languages, container technologies and their orchestration, CI/CD tools and cloud platforms. A typical technology stack could be for example: Robot Framework, Python, Selenium, Appium, Docker, Kubernetes, Jenkins, and Google Cloud. An ideal customer project for me offers the right amount of familiar and new challenges and we share common work methods with the customer. I'm delighted that at VALA I have been able to choose the projects that I find the most interesting and that will benefit my personal development the most. I've been given as much responsibility as I'm prepared to take and both VALA and the customers have trusted my independent decision making. Of course you're never left alone, since the work in the projects is still usually team work and the great VALA people will make sure you'll have everything needed for everyday work."
