Test Engineer


Improve the learning results of children: that’s what we do at Snappet. We develop smart software that allows teachers and children to get the best results. Our software is used in more than 2800 schools across Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and Spain and used by more than 180,000 pupils. We value the continuous improvement of our products in order to support all of these schools and pupils.

Only the best people can help us.

As an test engineer you’ll be part of one of our scrum teams. One moment you’ll be getting started on writing new tests, the other you’ll be working on one of the support tickets. In everything you do, you’ll always have the end user in mind. So you’ll combine your knowledge of Snappet applications with their experiences. You hit a snag? Then you’ll assess first what’s going on and then estimate the impact. Our reporting tool allows the developers to quickly find a solution. If there are problems not yet resolved, then you’ll get to discuss them during the daily stand-up meetings.

Each sprint will take 2 weeks.  Together with a product owner and other engineers, you will make the very best software, driven by the fact that you will be actively contributing to improving education.  At the end of each sprint, we do a demo of the results. In addition, we do a retrospective session to look at how it can be improved. We’re also continuously improving our developer working environment which consists of a DTAP-street and a build server, because we want to release software fast and often.

On the last Thursday of our sprint, developers are free to do whatever they want during our 'Techie Thursday'. People typically spend their time learning new technologies or collaborating on fun projects which are shared on places like GitHub. This typically leads to useful (and not so useful) tools that we use in house.

  • Experience with API and performance testing is a plus
