About the role
Prezly is looking for someone (remote) to take the lead on all things in terms of quality assurance of our products. From our main product, the newsrooms, API and various dashboards, the QA will be responsible for ensuring that our products function as expected and eliminating any bugs.
You will work on a variety of projects, mostly around the core Prezly product. You will be working with the product/engineering team. As our new teammate, you’ll be self-driven and work hard to bring value to your new company in the most effective way possible. You’ll work hard to make those around you better, communicate clearly, and make Prezly a better company.
About the technology
Our services are built around a core of a Single Page Application (react/JS/typescript), API’s in PHP (symfony). On the backend we use a Symfony fork (https://github.com/rock-symphony/rock-symphony) and interact with a Postgres (RDS) database.
We’re big believers in open-source and devops/CI – building, testing, and deploying to any of our environments are as simple as pushing a commit to a git branch. The infrastructure is containerised, built on top of AWS using Kubernetes. For open-source work, we encourage our team to share their work with the world and contribute where they can. Some open-source stuff we did.
We’re a technology company first: This means that in addition to product and business development plans, we put emphasis on continual improvement of our stack and infrastructure. Current projects include API’ing our full application suite and removing redux.
Covid-19 and Travel
As international borders reopen, we’re thrilled to be able to start planning in-person retreats and visits to our HQ. Since regulations vary from country to country, we expect each team member to make themselves aware of the travel regulations pertaining to where they live and plan their own travel accordingly.
We are happy to cover the costs for any covid tests you need to take to comply with travel regulations when attending retreats or other team meetings, which will vary depending on things like your country of residence, vaccination status and so on.

You will get
Great tools: What would Batman be without his utility belt? He’d still be badass. But you get the point. At Prezly you’ll get to choose your own gear.
Flexible hours: There’s a life outside of work. That’s why our distributed team works from where they want, when they want. And they get tons of work done.
Unlimited vacation time: We evaluate on value, not on time spent behind desks. Employees can take as many holidays as they need. This way they bring their A-game to the job.
Visits to Leuven: A few times per year the entire team gets together in the office in Leuven, the world’s capital of beer. We’ll fly you in so you can have fun with the team.
