Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

On location: we’re also open to those outside of Berlin

Our story:

Our story began when our founding team launched a mobile cryptocurrency exchange product in late 2017 called Coinance. After three months of operations and acquiring over 10,000 users, Coinance was pulled from the AppStore for not properly identifying its users in compliance with KYC (know your customer) regulations. During the search for a solution, the founders became convinced that there was a large opportunity to build an identity verification tool that was easy for engineering teams to integrate and empowered end-users with privacy and security. Fast-forward two years and the team has raised $8m in venture financing with several hundred customers building with our identity system. After having grown 14x over the last year, we need to continue growing our world-class engineering team. This means even more space for innovation and collaboration.

What we do:

We are Passbase, and our goal is to empower the world with a digital identity system that puts you, the individual, first. We give developers a set of tools to integrate into their facial recognition, liveness detection, ID authenticity checks, and ID information extraction, while also baking in privacy protections that allow individual users to control their own identity data – creating a more privacy-centric future.

What we’re looking for:

Passbase’s growth has created an opportunity for an ambitious Quality Assurance Engineer who will build and grow the QA engineering function. If you value autonomy and the responsibility that comes with it; if you are keen on learning, experimenting, and learning from failure; if you do not accept low effort and strive to continually improve yourself and your team; if you have a voice and want to use it; if you aspire to help others with your work, then Passbase is for you. We want your expertise to expand on our success and bring Passbase to the next level.
