QA Engineer Job description

Want to turn the world of cycling upside down and take the digital experience of more than 150.000 customers and our entire servicing squad to the highest level?

We are Swapfiets; started in 2014 and currently active in nearly fifty cities, across four different countries. At our HQ in Amsterdam, we work with around a hundred colleagues to offer the very best user experience to our customers, who in turn receive epic service from a team of 1200+ swappers and bicycle makers.

In this role, you will be part of the Engineering team; the heart of our operation. You will implement and coordinate a thorough test process in an emerging team. You take the lead in functional testing, maintaining and writing new automated tests and coaching your colleagues on testing practices. On a daily basis, you’ll be creating test scenarios, testing new functionalities, optimizing the speed of tests running in our pipelines and following up on issues found. Furthermore, you'll check whether the functionalities that have been built, match the requirements.

What are you going to do?
  • Take ownership of the whole testing process and following up until issue resolution;
  • Develop and execute end-to-end, regression, integration, automated and stress (load, performance) testing and database querying of features and experiments;
  • Exploratory bug hunting and testing of products on a website, app and internal systems, based on the expected design of these applications;
  • Troubleshooting and investigating issues, improving product documentation for reducing problem-to-resolution time and improving testing practices;
  • Work with a variety of stakeholders and with multiple products for identifying quality requirements, track quality assurance metrics and provide relevant reports;
  • Provide training and workshops on the topic of testing culture and best practices;
  • Stay up-to-date with testing tools, methods, and strategies.

Are you ready to join a team with high ambitions?

We are growing fast internationally. With your help, we want to continue expanding. What we are most proud of is how much we have already achieved as a team. Our team (around 20 Developers, Testers, Designers, and Product Managers) is characterized by a positive and collaborative atmosphere, flexibility, and ownership. But also: lots of humor, after-work activities (bootcamp, climbing, cycling, hackathons), daily lunches, and Friday afternoon drinks. At Swapfiets you will not find any complex hierarchical structures. That means you will be able to grow your career quickly. Your final solutions will help make thousands of people’s daily commute stress-free and fun!


Nearby the Amstel River and the Martin Luther King Park in Amsterdam, you will find our office in a hub, with lots of other small, creative companies. The office is also easy to reach by public transport (Amstel Station) and of course with your Swapfiets Deluxe (which you get from us). You can also count on:

  • Salary;
  • 32 vacation days;
  • A solid pension plan;
  • Lots of responsibility, challenging work, and friendly colleagues;
  • A training budget and room for professional development;
  • MacBook Pro (or a Dell; as you please);
  • Travel allowance (from a minimum residential working distance of 11 kilometres).

The ideal candidate will have:
  • Expert knowledge of manual testing and testing process in Agile software development;
  • Sufficient knowledge of writing tests in Selenium, C#, Gherkin (BDD), working with SQL databases and running your tests in Azure DevOps environment;
  • Experience to leave your mark on test automation, API testing and testing processes;
  • Joy in giving demos, transferring knowledge, and mentoring junior colleagues;
  • Plenty of courage: you are not afraid to show entrepreneurship and take responsibility;
  • Excellent communication skills in English. Dutch is considered a plus;
  • A plus: Experience with Azure Cloud.


You can now directly apply for this vacancy. As soon as we think: you've got what it takes to qualify for this position, our recruiter Babette Hoes will contact you to check some basic information and ask you about some of your previous successes. Next, you will be introduced to the team for a first and second interview, and you’ll have as final step a coffee with one of our founders. Are you and Swapfiets still as enthusiastic at the end of the process? Then you will receive an offer to join the Swapfiets team!
