Helium Health is a full-service healthtech company that provides a suite of solutions for healthcare providers, payers, patients and partners in emerging markets. We offer a hospital management suite, automated lending and data-driven public health solutions for healthcare stakeholders in Africa and the Middle East.

We are seeking a Quality Assurance Engineer who will be responsible for executing and managing exploratory and automated tests to ensure product quality. The successful candidate would design and implement tests, debug and define corrective actions, review system requirements and track quality assurance metrics (e.g. defect densities and open defect counts). In addition, he/she should partake in all stages of software development to proactively identify potential issues.


The ideal candidate would be required to ensure satisfactory service with customers at all levels (Developers, Operations, Product teams). Also, you will:

  • Create and execute test strategies which cover identified test scenarios.

  • Execute manual and automated tests. An acumen for automated testing is very desirable.

  • Follow standards set by the department Head to ensure quality software release.

  • Support and serve as a technical expert for Interswitch's in-house developed applications in all stages of development, testing, and production.

  • Ensure that testing activities allow applications to meet business requirements and systems goals, fulfill end-user requirements and identify existing or potential issues.

  • Ensure proper documentation of all testing activities.

  • Review new or modified programs, including documentation, diagram, and flow charts, to determine if the programs will perform as users require and conform to guidelines.

  • Ensure that regression tests are performed for any existing products that have been enhanced to discover any bugs.

  • Make recommendations for improvement of applications to Software Engineers.

  • Oversee manual testing in situations where automated tests cannot be achieved. That being said - be relentless about finding ways to automate these manual tests to save time and repetitive effort in the future.

  • Communicate application issues to the concerned development team for timely resolution.

  • Create methodologies and processes for the collection and analysis of data for ensuring software, systems, and product quality


  • 3 - 6 years’ work experience in a Software Quality Assurance role.

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills to enable you work as a team player, rather than just as an individual.

  • Basic programming experience is an added advantage.

  • Understanding of development methodologies (such as Agile and Scrum).

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills with the ability to liaise with a variety of stakeholders.

  • Good organization and problem-solving skills.

  • The ability to work under pressure.
