Job description

QA Automation Lead
Doha, Qatar
Rate / salary TBC
We are assisting our client to identify a QA Automation Lead to join in the headquarters based in Qatar. Note, due to the current Covid-19 situation our client will likely look to onboard people on a remote contract basis initially with the view to then flying out to Qatar once travel restrictions are lifted. Our client do ultimately want to hire permanent staff, so eventually these position will transition to permanent.
The original permanent budget is noted below, obviously this will be tax free and would also include associated benefits; so contract rates will be higher to take these aspects into consideration.
“QAR 26 – 30 K /month + benefits
Benefits: Annual ticket Allowance for the employee and family, medical insurance, education allowance, annual bonus, paid annual leave (based upon level) plus much more!”
