3 Job Vacancies: Mobile Tester, Server Dev and Mobile Dev

(We are interested in pro-active candidates who are motivated enough to find us by themselves.)

Masabi are currently on the lookout for three new members of staff to join our team - a tester, a junior mobile programmer and a more experienced server programmer.

Skills we look for in every candidate: passionate, clear thinking, flexible, confident working in small teams, fluent in English, and London-based, you'll have a desire to be both critical and receptive to the input of other team members. Masabi offers the ideal candidates an exciting work environment with plenty of opportunity to excel in an exciting growing business solving a clear customer need with a working revenue share business model.

The three jobs currently available are as follows:

We need a tester with experience across the full range of mobile devices, testing consumer-focused applications on real handsets and online simulators, as well as related web resources. We view a testing mindset as pretty opposite to a developer mindset and are really interested in someone who actually wants to work in QA, with a pedantic perfectionist attitude, who revels in finding problems and obtuse bugs whilst having the skills to explain exactly how to reproduce them, on which handsets, without bruising egos. We'd also love it if you've experience with automated server testing, and have ideas on how you'd like us to develop our funky internal mobile testing system.

A Java developer with a Computer Science degree and passion for programming, wanting to learn about creating beautiful usable products to solve real world problems on mass-market mobile phones. Blackberry and Windows Mobile programming experience a bonus.

A flexible J2EE developer with experience using Spring, Hibernate, JMX and creating interactive web front-ends, who is happy to work with various databases and webapp containers. Of great value: an understanding of secure systems, broad experience and flexibility with maintaining working servers, and skilled at working with remote teams from partner companies deploying products.

To get a better idea about what we do and how we do it, read blog.masabi.com, look through our flickr feed, and our website.

Candidates selected for interview must have excellent English skills with the ability to think concisely and communicate clearly with others, which will be tested at interview.

Again, please, NO AGENCIES! Really. We mean it.

If you're confident you're not an agency and are in fact the perfect candidate for us, please email a full CV with salary expectations and details on all relevant work permits to jobs@masabi.com

p.s. for those that want to see the office that you might be coming to work in:

(map shows it has great access to food heaven at Borough Market, Tube stops at Borough, London Bridge and Southwark, and commuting access from the Thames Water Taxi, and trains from Waterloo or London Bridge stations)
