Do you want to be part of the supermarket revolution? At Picnic you get the chance to join a young and forward-thinking start-up culture, where everything you do matters. With a data-driven approach and an incredible service, Picnic strives to make grocery shopping simple, fun, and affordable for everyone. Known for our just-in-time supply-chain and a unique last-mile delivery strategy, we have become one of the fastest-growing companies of the Netherlands!

Using next generation technologies, we constantly evolve our frontend and backend systems. We need brilliant QA Automation Engineers to help us maintain our high-level of quality while writing the future of in-app grocery shopping. 

🏦 Where you fit in 

Picnic’s customers rely on in-app ordering for their fresh, high-quality, and weekly groceries. As one of our QA Automation Engineers, you focus on backend, APIs, and web applications. That gives you the opportunity to test systems that are being used in an evolving and fully integrated supply-chain. 

If a system isn’t properly tested, our operation will be affected and a customer’s order may be messed up. That could mean no bananas to an area in Rotterdam, resulting in an upset customer, possibility of scurvy, and a bad rating. With an eye for detail and commitment to excellence, you never let that happen.

While your focus is on the backend, APIs, and web systems, Picnic operates over multiple platforms. This gives you the chance to diversify your abilities, and develop skills in Android, iOS, and Logistics. 

To get a grasp of the high-quality we expect, check out the iOS app stats: 

  • 4.7 star rating 💯
  • 99.93% crash free sessions 💪🏼

Our team is proud of those numbers. But there’s no luck involved. They come from a dynamic relationship between our product owners, engineers, and designers. As a QA Automation Engineer, you don’t hide behind your computer screen - you talk to everyone to ensure that the team works towards a common goal.

We work with in-house, tailor-made testing tools. But we think you can do better. Using your familiarity with next generation technologies you improve and construct tools. You do this while demonstrating an entrepreneurial spirit, complemented by fresh ideas and a real passion for what you do.
