We recommend that you only apply for one position at a time. Let us know in your application if you’re interested in other openings. Even if you don’t, our talent acquisition team will always evaluate your profile for other positions as well. They’ll let you know if we see a better fit somewhere else.

The Position

The Role:

In our Staff role you are seen as a senior member of our technical QA services team. You will spend time both embedded on an individual agile team and supporting testing across teams. You have a deep understanding of data structures, and are comfortable with DB languages. You have a passion for quality and drive practices that build it into our product. You have a lean mindset, and ruthlessly pursue ways to make our release testing more efficient, repeatable, and low effort. You also serve as the voice of the end user, advocating for clear logging and recovery process.

The Team:

Do you share our passion for data? Execution management and process mining cannot happen without our digital clone process. This is an unparalleled opportunity to explore and experience various databases and their data structures, with focus on integrity. Our data teams that focus on ingestion and transformation are critical to our core product. They work with a vast variety of unique input sources to ensure we capture and transform our partner data in a way that can bring value to the user. They continuously anticipate the problems that can be caused by data sources and their associated data types, and have a deep understanding of the end goals of process mining and the end user goals. They work closely across teams supporting the end to end process, and work with multiple technologies to ensure performance, scalability, and data integrity.

The work you’ll do:

  • Operate independently across multiple teams and at times as an embedded member of an agile team, consistently advocating to push quality left and drive customer satisfaction of our product offerings.
  • Own responsibility for one or more complex areas of testing.
  • Deliver robust, complete test coverage with minimal overlap.
  • Drive high quality test coverage in the team, ensuring definition of done includes minimal but sufficient automation and recognize the level of automation necessary to reach the goals.
  • Collaborate across the QA Chapter, mentoring other team members and contributing to efforts to improve overall process and quality.
  • Live by data not opinions, ensuring your agile team consistently meets auditability goals and that your team KPIs reflect the truth of overall quality status.


  • Extensive experience with SQL or similar query languages and databases (e.g. SAP HANA, MSSQL, Oracle, Snowflake).
  • Extensive experience driving large, complex test efforts.
  • Deep knowledge of ETL and API test approaches and methodologies to push testing left.
  • Working experience with at least one scripting language such as Python, Ruby or similar.
  • Experience with minimizing duplication of testing layers and a deep understanding of what should be tested at each layer.
  • Experience with Github or similar VCS and CI/CD processes.
  • Have experience with bug tracking and test repository software.

Our Hiring Process

3-stages interview process:

  1. Interview with the recruiter
  2. One or multiple on-site/ Zoom interviews with dedicated hiring managers/ team leads/ team members (usually a challenge needs to be prepared beforehand)
  3. Final interview with a member of the senior management team

Simultaneously a Revelian aptitude test, as well as a HiPeople Reference Check, are taking place.

Until further notice, all recruiting processes are held remotely.


  • The unique opportunity to work within a new category of technology, Execution Management
  • Investment in your personal growth and skill development (clear career paths, internal mobility opportunities, L&D platform, mentorships, and more)
  • Great compensation and benefits packages (stock options, generous time off, family leave from day one, and more)
  • Mental well-being support (mindfulness tools such as Headspace, virtual events and more)
  • A global and growing team of Celonauts from diverse backgrounds to learn from and work with an open-minded culture with innovative, autonomous teams
  • Employee resource communities to help you feel connected, valued and seen (Women@Celonis, Parents@Celonis, Pride@Celonis, Resilience@Celonis, and more)
  • A clear set of company values that guide everything we do: Live for Customer Value, The Best Team Wins, We Own It, and Earth Is Our Future
