Job Details

What's the Opportunity

Becoming a Software Tester makes you a critical part of the Empire Flippers team. You will ensure that our products, applications, and systems work correctly, and learn skills that will last you a lifetime in the online business world.

We are looking for people in the Philippines; however, we welcome all qualified applicants. This is a location independent position, allowing you to live wherever you’d like while working directly alongside the Engineering team, assessing software quality on the EF platform through manual and automated testing. 

We’ll teach you the ins and outs of the online business brokerage industry, coming from years of experience. 

This is a full-time position. Our company is growing at a fast rate, which means excellent opportunities for personal and career growth. 

What’s the Software Tester Position Like?

The Software Tester works within our Engineering department and is vital to the success of our company. You will be responsible for finding and reporting bugs and glitches and should have a keen eye for detail. You must have excellent communication skills. Ultimately, you will ensure that our products, applications and systems work correctly.

Here’s a look at some of the tasks and processes you’ll be responsible for:

  • Test applications across multiple devices, operating systems, and browsers
  • Identify and document bugs, defects and issues found during testing
  • Report bugs to development teams
  • Execute test cases and analyze results
  • Perform thorough regression testing when bugs are resolved
  • Investigate issues reported by customers
  •  Collaborate with the team to develop effective test strategies
  •  Other duties as assigned

What Skills Are Needed?

We believe in hiring people that are a good fit for us culturally.

A good fit is actually more important to us than the skill set since we will teach you everything you need to know.

You need to have immaculate attention to detail. We need to hear you asking questions whenever a test or debugging process doesn’t quite look or feel right, as you’ll be ensuring the debugging process is successful. Excellent written & spoken English comprehension is a must.

Be a good communicator. It sounds very cliché, but you’ll be brainstorming with team members in other departments, troubleshooting and investigating issues reported by staff and customers and performing tests on multiple devices/operating systems. A large part of this role requires the ability to effectively communicate and provide explanations both to customers and team members. Excellent written & spoken English comprehension is a must.

A self-starter. We need to see some evidence that you’re passionate about quality assurance! You won’t have eyes looking over your shoulder on a day to day basis, you’ll be working in almost full autonomy. We’ll need to trust you to deliver the goods. In a nutshell: you must be highly motivated, goal-driven and reliable.

We are seeking the following skills and experience:

  • Proven experience as a Quality Assurance Tester, Software Tester or similar role
  • Strong knowledge of software QA methodologies, tools and processes
  • Proficient in writing clear, concise and comprehensive test cases
  • Experience in testing web and mobile applications
  • Ability to think outside the testable range for possible edge case scenarios
  • Experience on Cross-Browser Testing and Mobile Testing
  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum development process
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Analytical mind and problem-solving aptitude
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Quick-learner, dependable, with strong attention to detail
  • Ability to multitask and meet deadlines
  • Highly motivated, goal-driven and coachable
  • Proficient with Google Suite, Slack, Skype and Zoom

What’s the Lifestyle Like?

Our company culture is built on the idea of travel, remote work, and living life on your terms.

We’re not looking to put you in a cubicle and waste your time in traffic. You’ll be working hard, playing hard, and learning all about our company and what we stand for during this time.

Apart from meeting us in person every now and then, you’re free to work and live anywhere you’d like.

You’ll become friends with people who will be able to give you massive insights into how digital businesses work, how they scale, and, of course, how to invest in them or sell them.

Love It. What’s the Catch?

This isn’t a gap year experience. This is not a temporary contract.

If you’re applying just because you want something to fund your travels before you start seeking out a “serious” job, then you probably shouldn’t apply.

We’re looking for career-minded people who share our vision and see where we’re going. We want you to be part of that vision and help us get there over the long haul.

And while we play hard and sometimes really do work next to the pool all day, we work even harder. Sometimes you will be putting in a 10-12 hour day as business demands arise. You’ll be working weird hours to match other team members time zones, and you’ll sometimes have to face some critical feedback. 

You will be expected to perform to our expectations and really help us grow our business to the next level. We’re counting on you.

If you can see yourself growing into a profitable and meaningful career with us and love what we do, we want you to be part of our team.

Details to Keep in Mind

When you first start off you will work closely in training with our Lead Quality Assurance Specialist who heads up our Quality Assurance team. During this period, your role will be probationary and your training and performance will be evaluated. 

We’re going to start you off slow. You’ll first learn about our company and what each department does; then you will be given some low-level tasks to ease you into the position. Over time, your skills will grow and you’ll be making a lot of decisions on your own. However, you will always have our support and knowledge to lean on. We aren’t going to throw you to the wolves — you’ll be part of a high-functioning team that is here to help wherever we can.

Our VP of Engineering and Lead QA Specialist will be reviewing every application. If we think you’re a good fit, we will reach out to you to do a video call interview. After the first interviews are done, candidates who progress to the second interview will complete a a QA Challenge. The final candidates who pass the QA challenge will be brought back for a final second interview before we make our decision.

We have a no side project policy: we do not allow any ownership, association, or affiliations with online businesses or websites. If you are the owner of an online business, then you will be expected to either sell the business before you join us or sunset it upon accepting a job offer from us. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not apply.

A background check is required. 

How Do I Apply?

Here is the sequence of events we use when hiring our Software Tester:

  • You fill out an application, providing answers that best explain who you are and why you’re a good fit for the position, and submit it ASAP.
  • We review submissions and schedule interviews.
  • Second interviews are conducted, and a final decision is made.
  • The chosen candidate will begin as soon as possible!
