Job Description

Please note I have direct access to the Hiring Director of Engineering on this position.

Also note the Hiring Director of Engineering is not looking for a traditional QA Engineer with expertise in established automated tools (i.e. Selenium, QTP, etc.). This is a role for Software Engineers that have designed and developed custom testing tools, frameworks and/or harnesses in Python, Java or Ruby.

A brand-new data and cloud based SaaS company fresh out of stealth mode is looking for 3 Software Engineers to develop automation tools and testing frameworks and harnesses. The company has been in business for 5+ years, is global, has 300+ employees, is experiencing 200+% annual revenue growth year after year and recently completed its Series D round of funding at $100 million for total funding of $230 million. The company’s current products have been industry tested and benchmarked at performance levels significantly higher than all of their competitors. The company has been voted as one of the Bay Area Best Places to Work in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

The Sr. and Mid-Level Software Engineers (Python, Ruby or Java) will collaborate closely with the Development staff to gain an understanding of the company’s business, products, systems, applications, SDLC and current testing processes. Currently, the Development staff are performing their own testing and there no established or formal testing tools in place. The Software Engineers will define, design and build custom robust scalable automation testing tools and testing frameworks and harnesses from the ground up utilizing the language of their choice (Python, Java or Ruby). The Software Engineers will be responsible for developing testing frameworks and harnesses to automate the testing process for SaaS systems, enterprise software and applications that are high performance computing, highly available, parallel and distributed, reliable, secure and scalable based on Big Data technologies running in the cloud. These systems are developed in Python, Java and C++ on the back end with JavaScript and ReactJS for the UI.

The goal of this role is to promote rapid growth engineering teams with automated tools that encourage high-quality and efficient coding standards. The Sr. Software Engineers in Test will improve reliability, stability, coverage and productivity of the development process. The Sr. Software Engineers in Test will evangelize, prioritize, and influence cross team efforts to improve process, tools, and communication for simultaneous on-premise and service product adoption of platform releases, as well as improve quality for and faster patch releases. The Sr. Software Engineers in Test will grow and incrementally mature the development and testing process with relevant metrics, performance engineering and best practices. This is an Agile development environment with short Sprints, adhering to TDD and BDD standards and Jenkins for CI.

The company offers full benefits (PPO & HMO) including dental and vision, 401K, 3 weeks of vacation, 8 paid sick/personal days, flexible time off, gym membership subsidization, free lunch and health snacks, Short and Long-Term Disability, Life Insurance, Employee Assistance Program, Wellness Programs, extremely casual dress and flexible work hours that all start upon employment.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a Software Engineer to build and/or enhance their experience by building new bleeding edge systems from the ground up that have a direct impact on company performance. This is all brand-new development. The Software Engineer will advance their skill set in an environment which promotes sharing, collaboration, growth, and professionalism. The Hiring Director of Engineering, VP of Engineering and the company have an established reputation for allowing Engineers to progress their careers at aggressive paces and to be exposed to new, complex and bleeding edge technologies.
