  • Pair with software engineers to write test code
  • Take the lead on researching and implementing better test frameworks/infrastructure/approaches
  • Ensure that testing is considered during design, definition, and refinement
  • Lead exploratory testing
  • Write production code and contribute in any other way capable of supporting the team
  • Interact with users and customers directly when needed to understand and design features, triage issues, and collaborate

What you’ll need to bring:

  • 5+ years experience as a quality or software engineer with a demonstrated ability to develop and deliver automated tests
  • Strong coding skills in Python or similar languages
  • Experience in test and infrastructure automation needed to deliver tests (Kubernetes is a big plus)
  • Demonstrated expertise with different testing methodologies and approaches such as:
    • Functional, Acceptance, and End-to-End
    • System testing
    • Contract testing
    • Performance testing
    • Stress testing
    • Security testing
  • Strong experimental design skills
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Some experience with containers and Kubernetes and an ability to learn quickly
  • Linux systems skills as both a development platform as well as target deployment environment

What we’d love to see:

  • Experience in modern test frameworks for Python (pytest, nose, unittest)
  • Development or testing experience with Javascript (Node.js in particular) and Golang
  • Experience working with a distributed team including other engineers, product management, customers, and our open-source community
  • Strong container and Kubernetes skills
  • Security training or testing background
