Do you want to help to develop the tools that revolutionize how our departments function? We are looking for ambitious individuals to learn the trivago approach to software quality assurance. Instead of following test instructions, you’ll be detecting problems and root causes by combining IT skills with exploratory testing, an analytical mind, healthy mistrust and the ambition to find bugs before anyone else does. You will test all aspects of newly developed features for web-based applications to ensure that they will work on current browsers and operating systems.

As part of a cross-functional team, you will learn to write test plans for manual and automated testing and will work alongside developers and project owners to detect malfunctions and deliver software that is bug-free. You will be expected to critically question the usability of product owners’ new ideas and suggest design improvements or corrections throughout the development process, as well as contribute during the planning and coordination of new software releases.

The ideal candidate:

  • Holds a degree in an IT-related field of study. Other majors are welcome to apply but please explain relevant IT skills and your passion for the web in your cover letter.
