Mission
 
We’re looking for a strong individual, with a knack for seeking truth, consistency, and excellence, to support and maintain quality amongst all of our products at Xendit.

This alows us the capacity for more rigorous and full-featured testing, and higher confidence when developing. Quality assurance is no easy task, and we’re looking for dedicated, motivated individuals who take pride and pleasure in pointing out inconsistency and fault, and can proactively communicate these issues before they come to a head. The reach and purpose at the core of Xendit’s mission requires an adherence to only the highest quality work, for the benefit of our customers, and Indonesia as a whole.
