QA Engineer (API)


Depop is the shopping community where the world’s creatives come to buy, sell, discover and explore the most inspiring and unique items. We’re on a mission to build our platform into one of the most vibrant, inspiring and creative communities in the world. Headquartered in London and with spaces in New York, LA and Milan, we are a team of over 100 who focus on supporting and enhancing our 10 million plus users around the world.

We are looking for a QA Engineer with a passion for Mobile apps and APIs to develop and execute exploratory and automated tests to ensure product quality. Ideally you will have a strong background in testing an API consumed by native Mobile apps.

As a QA Engineer you will estimate, plan, and coordinate testing activities. You will also ensure that quality issues and defects are appropriately identified, documented, tracked, and resolved in our defect tracking system. You will also expand and improve on our current automation framework.


  • Ensure user stories are properly phrased and documented with acceptance criteria at all phases of development
  • Write & execute functional and regression tests (Manual Testing)
  • Maintain our regression suite of automated acceptance tests
  • Help us improve our automated testing frameworks & tools
  • Estimate, prioritize, plan, and coordinate testing activities with onshore and offshore testers
  • Identify, record, document thoroughly and track bugs
  • Work closely to software engineers and product managers throughout all development of new features and bug fixes to guarantee that all functional and non-functional requirements are met
  • Ensure all products and services have been thoroughly regression tested prior to release

We are looking for someone who:

  • Loves working in a collaborative and dynamic environment
  • Values human interaction and face to face communication
  • Wants to make an impact every single day
  • Values pyramids over ice-cream cones
  • Despises flaky tests
  • Knows what constitutes useful automation, and how to write it
  • Wants to innovate in the technical space, and tells the world about it
  • Is not afraid to experiment with new technologies and is keen to explore


Now we're talking. We have stylish offices near Old Street (we were founded in Italy after all) and a relaxed atmosphere where you'll get to work with a well-funded, passionate and friendly team. There are perks of course, to name a few we have 25 days holiday, options to buy/sell more, apple discount, the regular snacks and drinks, parties, yoga, meditation, an enhanced UK pension scheme, beer and wine in the fridge (or sparkling water and celery if that's more your thing), special stuff on birthdays and life events and more. But the biggest perk of all is the opportunity to work with such a vibrant group of people building a product we deeply care about.
