This is a chance to be one of the first hires in an exciting startup. But not just any startup; a startup that is already profitable, is entirely bootstrapped (no VCs to keep happy), and with huge potential for growth.
Testpad is a SaaS tool for managing test plans. It’s for dev and test teams who are in a mess with spreadsheets, have hunted for a better solution, and before Testpad, gave up as everything else on the market is heavyweight traditional “test case management”. Testpad’s customers love how straightforward it is and regularly provide feedback saying what a joy it is to use.
Testpad has been built and run by Stefan Butlin, who has been working solo on Testpad since November 2010, steadily growing the feature set and user base, to the point that it’s now time to hire a small team of awesome people and accelerate the growth of this unique product (and while having a lot of fun in the process).
Testpad is looking for a Senior Full-stack Developer to help design, build and shape the next phase of Testpad’s products.
This role, in collaboration with the founder (who is also a full-stack developer), will influence the architecture of everything that is to come, including:
In addition to the product, the role also encompasses the new marketing website, with responsibilities including:
In your first weeks, you can expect to spend some time learning how Testpad is currently put together, which will definitely include some rounds of testing Testpad using Testpad (yes, this gets very meta!). Beyond that, expect the team to look for opportunities for some quick wins before embarking on bigger, longer-term, projects.
The role will also include an element of being “on-call” for handling emergency server problems, with the details of this to be decided together with the team. For reference, in the last 8 years, Testpad has had one incident of unscheduled downtime lasting 20 minutes. It will be your job to help ensure this track record of outstanding uptime is maintained!
To excel as a Full-Stack Developer at Testpad, you must have:
