In addition, you will be playing the role of a “testing consultant” in which you will get to perform some hands-on feature development within various engineering groups and contribute to efforts to develop a grassroots movement for sharing best practices around writing tests as well as testable code throughout the company.

Your projects will center around the implementation of specialized, proprietary systems that support the application engineering and test engineering disciplines.

Become an active individual contributor to the overall project’s initiatives which includes Java/Spring for application development, gitlab for source code control, gitlab ci for continuous integration/continuous delivery and Docker/AWS/Kubernetes for deployment. You will start to handle minor bug fixes, develop features that support the project, and begin writing testable code with appropriate tests in place.

  • Within three months – Full integration into the project where you are capable of developing features and demonstrate your ability to write highly testable code with all appropriate tests completed. Engage with other SDETs as well as project stakeholders to define and maintain the project’s backlog and begin to take ownership of all aspects of the project’s SDLC. Begin to mentor, guide and assign work to junior SDETs to assist you in your endeavors. Contribute to the hiring and onboarding efforts of new hires throughout the test engineering department.

  • Within six months – Become a driving force in all aspects of the assigned project and contribute to the overall goals of the SDET organization and Test Engineering as a whole. Take ownership of the project and work with other senior staff as well as senior leadership to deliver effective and efficient solutions by setting reasonable and achievable goals.

  • By the end of the first year – Significant proficiency in all aspects of SDET discipline and practice. Able to perform the basic testing consultancy functions with minimal supervision and integrate into various development teams to support their adoption of testing best practices. Have become a reliable individual contributor and mentor to the junior staff members as well as a skilled solution architect within the group.

Bring Your Best! What this role needs:

  • Proven results of delivering while working within an application engineering team.

  • Proven experience of mentoring team members (whether other developers or SDETs).

  • Ability to take initiative and work with minimal supervision.  We value autonomy here and want you to be the type that thrives in that environment.
