Test Engineer

Calling all test engineers!

Do you like to move quickly and break things?

Product design and user experience are at the forefront of what we do, and the path to seamless customer experiences and excellent product value could not be realised without the attention to detail and bug-swatting skills found in the toolkit of Test Engineers.

We caught up with one of our IT test engineers for a quick chat…

Can you tell us a little about yourself and what you do at Keylane as a Test Engineer?

Hi! My name is Gökhan Tulumcu and I have a master’s degree in Actuarial Mathematics from the University of Copenhagen. I started as a student assistant in the Danish department Devops in June 2022, which resulted in a full-time position in July 2023 after I finished school.

Currently, I work as a test engineer, and my primary focus lies with our customer Nordea Pension. In collaboration with other testers, developers and business analysts, I analyse and test bugs to improve and optimise our industry leading Plexus platform.

My primary area as a Test Engineer is the errors that relate to the tax paid annually on the value added of the individual pension plan (also called pal-tax). I also deal with areas such as Surrender (Partial Surrender), Projection and Death.

What do you most enjoy about your role as a Keylane Test Engineer?

In the job as a Test Engineer, I enjoy the process of recreating the errors to having a reasonable solution (which is caused by a thorough analysis). This includes recalculating some posts in the reserve accounts to see if they have been calculated correctly and whether the interaction between the different calculated posts makes sense.

Of course, these solutions must also be accepted by the customers, because in the end it is all about satisfying our customers, and I do my part to ensure this by discussing the errors with our customers so that we create the most advantageous solutions.

Why would you recommend Keylane to potential applicants?

First and foremost, there is an incredibly good opportunity to develop yourself professionally at Keylane, both in acquiring general pension knowledge and advancing your skills in coding (for example).

There are several Keylane tool that undergo constant improvements, but my favourite aspect of a career at Keylane is definitely the amazing colleagues i’m surrounded by. Everyone is enormously helpful, whether it’s a simple question or whether it requires a little more commitment.

In addition to the professionalism of my colleagues, there is also a very good Keylane social culture. Everyone knows everyone, and this brings huge value and increases one’s motivation and desire to work to create the absolute best customer experiences possible.
