Software Tester

Do you want to assure high quality, user friendly software? Are you an expert in testing and evaluating the software developed by your international colleagues? In this role you have impact on the improvement of first time-right software development.


Your job: keeping a keen eye on quality of our code


As a Software Tester you work on solutions that matter. Our mission is to be the best by delivering in-house software solutions that enable our clients to effectively solve their facility and real estate challenges.  

We need you to test our web-based enterprise products together with your multidisciplinary agile scrum team. We promise to challenge you every step of the way. International colleagues, innovative products and great career opportunities: all part of the job.


We'll keep you up to date about the latest trends and major investment themes for years to come, including cloud, mobile, IoT, analytics and AI.


As a Software Tester, you add value in many ways. For example by:

  • Being a promotor in your team of improved ways of working to reach bug prevention instead of bug detection (first time right);
  • Playing an important role in the stages before software is delivered. You contribute to the quality of the software specifications and to the quality of code designs and regression test cases (shift left); 
  • Testing Planon’s web-based product using our state-of-the-art testing tools, such as QF-Test, JUnit, Selenium and NeoLoad;
  • Creating logical test designs with the use of standard test design techniques;
  • Steering on technical and functional quality of product development;
  • Being the fallback for other testers in your team when they don’t know how to do something.
