Rakuten Blockchain Lab seeks Lead QA Engineer


  • Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten is seeking a Lead QA Engineer to join its Belfast team.

    You will not find a better opportunity than this in Belfast (or beyond) to be the Lead QA Engineer on a modern, blockchain-based cloud platform delivering solutions for a global leader in internet services with more than 1.2 billion members around the world.

    The Rakuten Blockchain Lab team in Belfast build secure, high availability enterprise platforms that allow the many Rakuten Business/Developers to create solutions that take advantage of the benefits of distributed ledger or blockchain technologies without having to be concerned about the complexities of implementation.

    Our platforms follow a microservice architecture where services are developed in Node.js and deployed as docker containers into a cloud based Kubernetes environment.

    There are integrations with relational databases, 3rd party APIs as well as specialised cryptographic services and of course blockchain networks.

    The overall test approach requires a balanced strategy of unit, integration, and end-to-end tests in addition to the non-functional testing such as performance, failure/failover and security that you would expect for this type of platform.

    The team are currently working on a number of very exciting Rakuten HQ projects to be delivered in 2019 and are urgently looking for a Lead QA Engineer to work side by side with the platform engineers to design and execute an effective test strategy.

    If you are a Senior/Staff QA Engineer not getting as much technical testing as you would like or a Senior Software Engineer who wants to take a broader role in the delivery of these complex solutions, then we would love to talk to you.
