As a Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) you will write software to test product functionality and performance. Your work is a critical part of our continuous delivery pipeline. Do you love collaborating with product managers, engineers and designers to ensure we build high-quality software? We'd love to hear from you.

Challenges on which you can expect to work:

Requirements and Test Planning

You will work with engineers and product managers to understand requirements and flesh out user stories with acceptance criteria. You will bring clarity to expectations. Once requirements are understood you will prioritize our automation initiatives and ensure comprehensive test coverage.


Your principle responsibility will be building automation platforms and test cases to ensure the quality of our products. This includes:

Browser-based UI tests using tools like Cypress/Selenium;
HTTP API testing;
Performance testing using tools like Gatling/Locust.io


Using your knowledge of test methodologies you will coach engineers on ways they can ensure quality in their code. For instance, recommending improvements to unit tests during code review or suggesting performance increases for integration test suites.


Do you love measuring what you build? You will define, measure, and communicate metrics that represent our product quality. These metrics help us know we're focusing on the right things and continually improving.
