A bit about us
Virtuoso improves the speed and quality of software development by empowering everyone to create and automate tests. We believe that anyone in the business, not just engineers, should be able to create tests for the part of their web platform that they know best. Scaled in the cloud, using automation with AI, Virtuoso enables this to happen. We have already achieved remarkable success and are rapidly expanding our team to take us into our next stage of growth.
At Virtuoso youll have the freedom to make decisions quickly and execute them, to work collaboratively with colleagues in other countries, (our product team is based in UK, Portugal, and Spain, so advanced written and spoken English is a must), and youll be able to apply your frontend engineering expertise to build a robust and scalable enterprise product to allow organisations to test their software faster and more effectively than ever possible before.
