About The Job

Our team is involved in critical work, but is still quite young. We are looking for a Senior Testing Engineer who will have the opportunity to make a huge impact and help define our direction.

Here are some of the things we’ve been working on in the first 5 months since this team was born:

  • Creating and socialising a holistic testing strategy based on the continuous deployment principles and practices.
  • Tooling to create test data at scale (millions of entities);
  • Automated Testing in CI/CD pipeline – we need to test every release using automation as much as possible;
  • Chaos Testing for Availability Zone/Regional Failover under Load

There’s a lot more to do. We want to provide world-class developer experience by building modern developer-friendly tooling and maintaining infrastructure to run at planet-scale. Our ideal candidate is someone who is curious and adaptive, who is a specialist in the Testing space, and has enough curiosity and technical knowledge to navigate through Swvl’s architecture.

If you feel like riding the roller coaster, having a sense of ownership, willing to share knowledge, learn and grow, team-centric, and focused on end value rather than self-achievement, this could be your golden opportunity.

Responsibilities And Duties

  • Work with your team members to design and build testing and chaos engineering strategies and processes;
  • Contribute to our tooling, which is used across the organization (CLI’s, services on GCP, etc);
  • Be a performance and resilience advocate and advisor to the rest of the Engineering organization;
  • Understand Swvl infrastructure and product in-depth, partnering with platform/product teams to dive into production anomalies, help find root causes and make recommendations (e.g. impact of new features, infrastructure upgrades or resilience improvements)


  • You have an automation mindset, and you prefer machines to perform mundane tasks
  • You communicate effectively and asynchronously
  • You manage infrastructure with code; it doesn’t exist if it’s not in git
  • You solve problems with other people; you are a team player, not a hero. We share the knowledge (and sometimes the pain)
  • You are humble and have a sense of humor; you won’t be alone here
  • You like to use data over opinions to make decisions. And are ok with finding data yourself when it’s missing
  • You have a strong sense of ownership, care about what you build, and build the right thing that serves your customers
  • You like the opportunity to have tons of exposure, make things for a company long-term, and have an entrepreneurial attitude for anything that comes your way
  • You are comfortable with changes in priorities, goals, and deadlines. You see more of this as an opportunity than a hurdle. You are also comfortable with challenging the status quo and pushing for change yourself.

What We Offer

  • Great opportunity to be part of a start-up with a lot of responsibility and independence early on and where you will have an impact on the entire business
  • Attractive compensation package
  • Access to Udemy for learning and development

Our Ways of Working

  • Remote and sync work, work from anywhere in the world
  • Product first mindset
  • The best idea wins; we’re all ears when it comes to ways to do things better

Our Technology Stack

  • For backend, we build in Node.js, go-lang, and typescript
  • For the frontend, we build using Node.js and react
  • For mobile, we use Swift and Kotlin
  • We use AWS and GCP for cloud services
  • We manage our infrastructure with Terraform, Kubernetes, Helm, Istio, Vault, Docker, ArgoCD and DataDog
  • For persistence, we are mostly using MongoDB & SQL databases

If you feel you don’t have the full experience we’re looking for but feel you could be a fit, are willing to learn, do apply anyway. We are building a diverse and inclusive team.
