Software Test Engineer (Manual)

Ottawa, Canada

What makes us Qlik


Qlik helps enterprises around the world move faster, work smarter, and lead the way forward with an end-to-end solution for getting value out of data. Our platform is the only one on the market that allows for open-ended, curiosity-driven exploration, giving everyone – at any skill level – the ability to make real discoveries that lead to real outcomes and transformative changes. We are a Values-Driven organization, operating over 100 countries with 45,000 customers around the world. If you think we are interesting, please read on – we may be looking for you!


We are looking for a Software Test Engineer who is passionate about helping teams deliver awesome software. If you have a passion for data analytics, testing software and working with talented people to build great software, this is the opportunity for you! 


This opportunity will allow you to:

  • think like a user approaching our software for the first time despite using our products every day;
  • understand our customer’s needs, easily create realistic datasets and apply cases that our developers can use to test code; be an expert at identifying edge cases no one else has thought of – early in the design / development cycle;
  • learn software quickly and soon become the go-to expert on how to use and configure software products, especially among developers;
  • have a strong instinct for risk, know where to focus your attention, what areas to probe and what questions to ask to ensure that everyone on the team is thinking clearly and thoroughly about quality;
  • understand that zero defects allow us to deliver faster, ensure that every developer is equipped with the knowledge, test cases and risk assessment to deliver bullet proof features that you can’t break; inspire developers to create high value and efficient (fast) automated tests that cover the riskiest scenarios;
  • understand that developer productivity is our highest leverage point, be passionate about reducing the window of opportunity for bad code to go unnoticed, radically reducing overall debugging and bug isolation time; the net result is that developers no longer sink hours into debugging build problems and test failures;
  • measure your success not by the number of bugs found, but by the absence of bugs created by team members; teams you are a part of spend more time delivering great features and less on debugging;
  • be knowledgeable of and/or gain experience with continuous delivery and continuous deployment in a cloud environment; completely understand the automated test pyramid and know that your job is to make sure those tests have everything they need to ensure regression never happens; and
  • keep yourself up to date with best practices in test and know when to push and when to cooperate in getting them implemented in a large organization.
