What does Data Dog do?

We create software solutions that empower organisations to shift to artificial intelligence driven future. We apply AI in the real world by building industry specific enterprise applications ranging from products tackling isolated problems to end-to-end supply chain, resource management and optimisation solutions. On a lot of our products we work together with Satalia, one of Europe's fastest growing AI companies, and our long-term partner in London. Working as one team, we apply our combined expertise in AI, data science and development to build full stack AI solutions that move the needle for our clients, and we have been doing it for the last 6 years.

What will you be doing here as a QA Engineer?

You will join the team developing a custom supply chain management system for a Swedish pharmaceutical supplier. It is a highly regulated industry, so quality is crucial and our system is an integral part of everyday operations of our client. It is a challenging project with a lot of corner cases, and your role as a QA is really key here.

We take a highly collaborative approach to developing solutions and our clients are actively engaged throughout each development cycle. As Vytautas, senior developer on the team, puts it: “One of the most enjoyable things is the close relationship we have with the client. They are keen to discuss ideas and are involved in various parts of the development process.”

The whole team works as one unit. You will own, drive and improve the testing process, collaborating with the team and bringing your own ideas about the new testing tools and strategies that could be used. We highly encourage everyone to keep growing and help others do the same, so you will have the financial support available for training, and support from your colleagues to help you create your own career path. Working remotely at times is also a possibility (if you ask the team nicely ;) ).
