We value testing as an essential part of our work and recognize the need for more testing representation on our teams. We are expecting rapid growth for our company within the next few months and now more than ever, we need to ensure that our product quality stays high. At Mappedin, we practice continuous deployment, where your work will be critical to the success of this strategy.
Behind the scenes
There’s a lot of trust here at Mappedin. We work flexible hours and we value execution and will do what it takes to get things done if it’s something we’ve promised. We stay curious and will always ask each other questions, rarely making assumptions. We recognize that we are all different and will challenge each other’s views and perceptions from time to time, resulting in constructive and healthy debates, but that never stops us from all eating lunch together every day. If you want to join our sports team, we have a blank bright orange jersey here waiting for your name to be printed on it.
Lastly, we have an awesome office cat who loves attention. Allergic? Don't worry, he stays on the other side of the office and won’t bother you unless you decide to work in the collaboration area there.
