Looking for someone who can test and check websites, both during development and once they are live.
* Designer has created a PSD design; developer says the pages have been built to match the design. Is the developer correct - in all details? Or has he missed something or messed up?
* Developer has built a page. Looks good on his browser. But what about on other browsers? What about on mobile devices? (We have Browserstack accounts to allow you to test on mobile devices - you don't need the devices.)
* Developer says he has fixed some bugs on a website. Has he? And has he broken anything else while he was doing it?
* Someone on the team has noticed a bug - something that doesn't work properly... but the problem only occurs occasionally. Try to work out what the rule is - under what conditions is it going wrong?
* A website is "ready" to go live. At least, we think it is ready. It needs a final check. There is a 50-question checklist to run through to verify the details of the website's operation. Run through that checklist, testing the website against each item on the list.
* Small team of freelancers. No office - everyone working from home (from Glasgow and Köln in the north, to Rijeka and Beograd in the south, to Kyiv in the east) - including developers, designers, project management, UX and some video.
* Mix of work. Some agency subcontracts on small projects for big brands (to give an idea of the quality we need), some work for start-ups, but most of our work is for established mid-sized companies and NGOs.
* Very "northern European" working style - factual, clear, not emotional, and with a strong focus on deadlines.
* Communications via Skype and Jira. English is the language of all communication in the team.
* Good attention to detail, and enjoys the "detective work" of trying to find problems and work out why things don't work.
* Fluent or good + confident spoken English, and happy talking on Skype.
* Any experience in web work would be a plus (e.g. any experience with WordPress, programming, design) - not because we expect you to do any of this, but just as it will help if you have an understanding of how websites work.
* Clear communication.
HOW TO APPLY
* Please let us know in a couple of lines at the start what you think makes you perfect for this - and anything similar that you have done before. (Key words: "At the start." Make sure this summary is in the first 1-2 lines of your reply.)
* After that any more information about you would be great, but don't go to great effort - we don't want to waste anyone's time at this stage.
* The usual unspoken rules of seasoned UpWork job postings apply - if you contact us off UpWork (Twitter, Skype, phone, email) that is immediately a "no"; if you don't read the brief but just paste a standard sales pitch, that's a "no"; if you lie about what you can do that's a "no"; etc.
