Job Description

Our Story
We’re empowering people to FeelGood about their money.
We’ve been on this journey since 2004, when we built the first ever peer-to-peer lending company to give people access to simpler, better-value loans and investments. When it comes to money, we think everyone deserves a fair deal, so since we launched, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of customers to take the stress out of money by building our business on honesty, transparency and trust.
Our journey’s always evolving, and we’ve just launched a bank. But a different type of bank – one that empowers its customers to take control of their finances and FeelGood about their money.
If you embrace being challenged beyond the norm, aren’t afraid to think differently and are motivated by working somewhere you can really make an impact, you’ll love life here at Zopa.
At Zopa we believe that Quality comes first in everything we do.
We believe it is important to produce a Quality experience for the User through following processes/best practices and by preventing issues and solving problems. Therefore we believe that being a QA engineer is much more than just testing tickets and trying to break code.

We are big believers in both autonomy and collaboration while aiming to achieve consistency on QA processes across the board.  It is essential that you work closely with teams to understand the product, speak up and challenge when you feel it is right to do so and be the driver of Quality.
Some of the Tech Stack we currently work with: Java, Python, Kafka, Kotlin , React, React-Native, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, RabbitMQ, AWS Aurora Postgres, Babel just to name a few.

    • Ideally you'll have at least 3 years experience as a QA Engineer
    • You'll have experience in mentoring and managing people (for Lead Role)

If Quality is important to you and wanting to broaden your knowledge and help refine processes and best practices, then you would be a great fit at Zopa!
To thrive here, you’ll need to:
Champion our customers. Whatever your role, you’ll be close to our customers. We care passionately about doing the best for them.
Help us make fearless choices. Our environment is fast-paced, agile and open. You’ll solve interesting and challenging problems, and be trusted and empowered to bring your ideas to life.
Walk the talk. Like us, you’ll be honest, stick to your promises and face the tough moments head-on.

Zopa is proud to offer a workplace free from discrimination. Diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds leads to great products and unique company culture.
