What is HeyOrca?

As a developer, you have probably worked on some contracts and projects at some point in your life: setting up a website, developing software, consulting, ... . The success of the project relies on effective communication between you, your team and the stakeholders of the project by defining goals, deliverables, collaborating on work and communicating the results. Marketing agencies work similarly: they help tens and hundreds of clients with their marketing strategy and content; all with different expectations, deadlines and deliverables. HeyOrca is a web based tool to make sense of this chaos: bringing the marketing team and their clients together in one place to communicate, create and deliver. Think of it like github for marketing agencies.


The QA Specialist

While our team is focused on delivering exciting features and improvements as fast as possible, we want to maximize a pleasant user experience by preventing bugs, inconsistencies and confusion. We can't do this without the hero who is dedicated to making sure the team is making as few mistakes as possible: The QA Specialist.

And that?s where we need you. We are looking for a capable developer with an analytical mind who will help the team with documenting and reporting bugs, building automated tests and qualifying every change before it gets released.

What you'll do


Your responsibilities revolve around ensuring the quality of work at various stages of the software development process, from ideation to post-release:

  • Ensuring development tasks are well defined and documented
  • Writing automated tests that help minimize development mistakes
  • Testing and validating all new bug fixes
  • Testing and approving the visual and functional accuracy of all new features with the product and support team
  • Classifying bugs and providing high-level reports

What you'll need


As a qualified applicant, you

  • Have work experience with writing automated tests
  • Are detailed oriented in reporting and assessment

  • You want to make an impact in the early to mid stages of a successful tech company,
