We are helping companies, governments, and communities reduce the impact of natural disasters and provide help and resources to those who need them the most.

Duties and responsibilities

As an active member of the development team, you will be involved in the development of software and services from the start of pre-production and into release and further support.

The automated test suite is maintained in Python and runs on gitlab-ci.

You will write and walk through checklists, review implemented user stories and raise the team’s awareness of potential risks. Kontur’s services are built around the topic of natural disasters, there is a challenge in providing certain SLA levels to customers when the world is falling apart.

Primary testing targets will be web based user interfaces showing map and tabular data, internal data and layer management interfaces, and preliminary testing of REST and GraphQL endpoints before the implementation of automated tests.

We use Fibery for maintaining the documentation and processes. Validation of the correctness and completeness of documentation will be a part of your duty.
