As our Quality Engineer, you will be part of the Quality department within the R&D division. You will report to the Quality Lead. You will be assigned to projects and placed in charge of upholding the quality of products released by Ultimaker.

  • Design and develop methods and tools for verification of the system based on technical requirements
  • Secure that all verification and validation tests are carried out and results are registered
  • Contribute to the establishment of the test automation strategy by designing, developing, and executing the automation test scripts in a project
  • Support the validation activities by setting up and running Alpha and Beta tests with users, providing support to Alpha and Beta Testers during the execution of the test, analyzing and reporting results
  • Plan and carry out all quality activities as defined in the Product Lifecycle Management Process

Other activities include:

  • Support the Scrum teams at the assessment of Software releases at the end of sprints
  • Assess verification reports and results
  • Stimulate and carry out Continuous Improvement activities regarding the further development of our processes and methods

Do you fit this profile?
