QA Engineer

For the DPG Media IT organisation, we’re looking for a talented QA Engineer for the Selectives Area.

On a daily basis, our content impacts millions of readers, making DPG Media the biggest media house of The Netherlands and Belgium. Without our passionate community, journalists and over 400 IT colleagues, this wouldn’t be possible. Within the Entertainment cluster of our IT organisation, the Selectives Area, consisting of two feature teams, creates the best experiences across the digital presence of our premium news brands: De Volkskrant, Trouw, Het Parool, De Morgen and HUMO.

To deliver on this, the Selectives teams build and run a white-label platform for web and app, desktop, mobile and tablet use. In close cooperation with the journalists of the news titles, the teams build and run the corresponding teaser CMS. At this moment in time, the platform is being rolled out to the last brand. Yet our challenges continue…
