Software Engineer in Test

Our collaborative and iterative development approach has us testing all the time to avoid the last minute crunch. In order to do this we use lots of tools and test data to ensure that we can efficiently do functional, regression, and integration testing as part of the daily development process. The full team is involved in testing, but we need a mastermind to coordinate this effort for each engineering project that is running, playing a material development role on each project.  

This is a core engineering position where you will write production code.  You are also responsible for ensuring that each feature can be built, tested, and deployed (along with our DevOps team) in a reliable and repeatable manner.  

Automation is a key part of this effort, but we also know that we need to be smart about what we test, when we test, and how we test. Very often the best results come from a well-informed user doing something ‘clever’ with our app. We are looking for engineers that share these ideals and can help us take our test and development technology to the next level. Skills that we look for in this role include:

  • Ability to code in in a variety of languages such as JavaScript, Java, or Ruby.
  • Solid understanding of web applications and how to test the different layers (JavaScript, JSON, Servlet, DB).
  • History of developing and testing RESTful interfaces.
  • Very strong opinions about and real-world experience with test cases and the tools to manage them.
  • Knowledge of server-side testing frameworks and how to build stable, resilient tests that actually test at the appropriate level (unit versus system).  Examples include mocha and cucumber.
  • As a plus, experience with the world of UI automation using tools such as Selenium, Watir, Sahi, …

Our ideal candidate takes an extremely pragmatic approach to GRC and is able to balance the needs of a very dynamic engineering culture with that of protecting the company and our customer’s data.

Skills that we look for in this role include:

Full Stack Engineer

We believe strongly that a well-designed application makes customers happy, reduces support costs, and removes the need for static documentation. We ensure that every feature is customer driven and simple enough to explain on a single page wiki.  Rather than hire into well-defined categories, we are looking for engineers that want to take ownership, deliver results, and make a difference in many different parts of our product and process evolution. Here is a short list of things that we discuss daily. If they make sense to you, then you likely make sense to us:

  • Code reviews and Test Driven Development are a way of life. We know that “the slow way is the fast way.”
  • Our engineers are masters of at least 1 part of our stack, are fluent in 2, and understand all 3.  Our technology looks like this:
    • Node.JS/ and or Java
    • JavaScript[Angular/Backbone]/CSS[Sass]
    • AWS/SQL[MySql/PostGres]/NoSQL[Cassandra]
  • We make heavy use of Source Code Management [Git] tooling and expect to see multiple code check-ins daily.  All code commits go through a highly collaborative code review process.
  • A deep understanding of JavaScript and recent experience with Node.JS and at least one of the popular client frameworks such as backbone.js, angular.js, or ExtJS.
  • Proven experience with single page web applications that make asynchronous server requests via REST. I’ll call it AJAX just to get the buzzword hit on search engines.
  • Practical experience with CSS and an understanding of responsive layouts.  Experience with CSS pre-processing using SASS or similar tools is a plus.
  • A strong desire to understand how customers use our product, not just show off all our features.
