What Is the Opportunity?

Software Quality Engineers work with teams and the Engineering community to evolve our approach to test automation and the tooling used to ensure software is of high quality. With a strong understanding of the desired approach to ensuring quality, they coach and partner side by side with Software and Data Engineers to analyze complex software systems, current quality practices, frameworks, and tools to identify opportunities for improvement in software quality. They work in partnership with engineers to implement those improvements leveraging their expertise to solve complex issues. This is not a Software Quality Assurance or Software Testing role and requires Software Development experience.

What Will You Do?

  • Develop and expand our test automation framework and test coverage.
  • Develop working knowledge of the entire application stack including tests at all levels. (Unit, Integration, and End-to-end).

  • Collaborate with engineers to define and implement mechanisms to inject testing earlier into the software development process.
  • Identify, share, and nurture the adoption of best practices in code health, testing, testability, and maintainability. You should champion clean code and the concept of the test pyramid.
  • Analyze complex software systems and collaborate with others to improve the overall design, testability, and quality.
  • Strive for the fastest feedback possible. Test parallelization should be a top priority. You see distributed systems as a core challenge of good test automation infrastructure.
  • Configure automated tests to execute reliably and efficiently in CI/CD environments.
  • Track and communicate test results in a timely, effective, and automated manner.
  • Work independently to tackle well-scoped and loosely scoped problems.
  • Seek opportunities to expand technical knowledge and capabilities.
