Job Description

Posted 2 months ago

There’s a person we want to work with.

  • You understand that communication is the biggest responsibility of your job, and the one you’re least likely to get right unless you focus on it 
  • When you take on a task whether it’s huge and scary or tiny and boring, you’re going to see it through to the best of your ability
  • You focus on building tests for products that protect users and that matter to the company you’re building them for
  • You are confident with a number of programming languages and tools. You probably have one of each you prefer right now, but you’re neither dogmatic nor myopic in your focus on it
  • You have a special attention to detail that focuses not only on how something works, but what ways something can go right and can go wrong; a detective of sorts that wishes to cover all bases and not leave any stone unturned.
    • Work with the Product and Development teams in developing a QA testing strategy for projects
    • Review and test your teammates’ pull requests
    • Determine the appropriate balance of manual and automated tests, as well as the types of tests (UI, API, functional/performance/load, etc)
    • Work with cross-functional teams (Development, QA, DevOps) in test automation activities across the organization
    • Develop solutions and proposals based on best practices to help guide our automation development strategy and implementation into new technologies that would help maximize quality across the organization
    • Review PRDs, functional and design specifications
    • Work closely with QA peers to develop automated test suites for existing new features
    • Integrate with CI systems and support the creation and maintenance of test metrics.
    • Follow Agile methodologies; be a proactive participant in the SDLC and engage in dialogue concerning any process or test scope changes that would benefit the team
      • 4+ years of software testing development experience including manual and automated testing of  web applications and APIs 
      • Advanced problem-solving, debugging and troubleshooting skills
      • Experience with, and a strong understanding of Ruby Cucumber, or other relevant testing tools (SeleniumWD, Rspec, Capybara, etc)
      • Experience working with CI systems/tools (Buildkite, Jenkins, Gitlab, etc)
      • Ability to manage tasks from assignment through to production
      • Experience improving test suite performance
      • A solid team player (we’re peers here, no egos, please), you highly value working with people you like and respect, you’re agile, humble,  trustworthy, and you’re comfortable working asynchronously, too
      • Bonus: Experience with Elixir Testing
