Job description

Be part of our growth and become our new Test Lead

Your future ecosystem
As our Test Lead, you operate across several Scrum teams and closely collaborate with the QA engineers in the teams, as well as with the Product Owners and Architects.


Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”, where our campus is located in De Lier. In these 100 square kilometers, Priva was founded in the fifties and is still a family business.

Priva started as a hardware company and transformed into an innovative software company that grew to become the global market leader in horticulture and building automation. Today we are a high-tech company that develops hardware, software and digital services in the field of climate control, energy-saving and optimal reuse of water. We do this for horticulture, indoor and city farming, as well as utility buildings such as offices, retail, hotels and hospitals.

Our next step is to conquer the digital domain and become a digital service provider, selling subscriptions to "climate as a service".

We are proud to be working with over 600 colleagues, in 16 international branch offices divided over 12 countries together with over 400 international installation partners to deliver our sustainable solutions and services in more than 100 countries.


How you add value

As our Test Lead, you are responsible for a well-set-up, documented and executed test approach. With your expertise, you will be leading the testing on our biggest project which is in the heart of our organization. This means that we are looking for an experienced Test Lead who has strong people skills and knows how to get the testers involved in taking this essential step into the future. You must be someone who can approach this pragmatically as many teams have their own way of testing that fits the product that is being made. A big part of your responsibility is to uniform, structure and grow cohesion between the teams and their way of working and push to share knowledge and experience with each other and help each other and Priva grow in the testing profession.


To do so, you must be able to create a clear overview of all required testing activities and interdependencies and support the testers in setting up the test strategy to be applied in the respective teams. Also, support the teams in choosing the right testing framework and support in implementing these frameworks. This must be done in a way that also ensures that all (company) risks are covered.


We outsource our hardware production so the focus of this role will be on the full breadth of hardware, embedded to the cloud, with the focus on the cloud. So, from your background, you have an extensive understanding of setting up and maintaining integration testing, dashboards with live statuses, and automated user flows end-to-end tests.
