Quality Assurance Engineer - Mexico City

Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico · Technology

Why is technology so important at Konfío?

We are using technology and alternative data to unlock financial services for many small businesses throughout Mexico and we’re looking for top talent in order to keep growing.


What are some examples of problems a QA Engineer will solve?

Shipping valuable features requires close coordination between devops, database, API, and frontend workstreams; Konfío engineers commonly pair and rotate focus between these responsibilities. We consistently work with new technologies, and thus value professionals who are open to learning new things, regardless of pre-existing comfort zones. Konfío QA engineers might solve any of the following problems:

  • Load and Stress Test new applications, you will be responsible of signing off on applications that will be visited and used thousands of times per day
  • Validate Backend work streams, any new data that arrives from third party sources must be correctly transformed into proprietary data
  • Always think about the user! Consider that the user experience must never degrade due to traffic or concurrency, and work with the development team to confirm that
  • Front End Functional testing, if you see something that is not right, Speak Up! Make sure that code never makes it into production
  • Database Testing, You see a number or data that does not make sense? Help the team coordinate efforts so it gets caught right on time.
  • Regression Testing. Just because Production is Production does not mean that it may not be broken. You have to run regular scans
  • Automating tests, Imagine that everything we mention above could be done by computers? Great! That is precisely what we are after! The more ground you can cover, the higher relevance your work has!

  • You are results-oriented and enjoy shipping new features
  • You are hungry and enjoy being constantly challenged to learn and do more
  • You embrace conflict of ideas and like to question the status quo
