QA Automation Engineer (Prague / other locations) at SUSE (Prague, Czechia)

Some exciting facts about us:

SUSE, a pioneer in open source software, provides reliable, software-defined infrastructure and application delivery solutions that give enterprises greater control and flexibility. More than 25 years of engineering excellence, exceptional service and an unrivaled partner ecosystem power the products and support that help our customers manage complexity, reduce cost, and confidently deliver mission-critical services. The lasting relationships we build allow us to adapt and deliver the smarter innovation they need to succeed—today and tomorrow.

About the role:

As a QA Automation Engineer involved in testing and validation you are here to push the SUSE Enterprise Storage product (based on Ceph) to its limits. Using various kinds of programming and scripting languages you would be expected to write test cases, while planning, designing, developing and maintaining automation tools, in order to identify problems early and deliver the product above the level where it performs according to our customers' expectations and conforms to the highest quality standards.

As part of an agile engineering team you will be testing cutting-edge technology, while it is being integrated into new releases of SUSE Products. At the same time you will be monitoring new releases to ensure that no regressions occur. We would expect you to contribute to the new test strategies and to broaden the test scope, but at the same time to improve the efficiency of testing wherever possible in order to reduce effort.

The product depends on a tightly-controlled continuous integration, which is ever-growing in size and coverage. We would require you to help our own team to maintain the test suite and contribute by providing new test scripts, while supporting engineers in developing their own test cases.

We also need someone who is able to document strategies and test cases clearly and concisely in a way that could be shared and easily communicated across members in the QA and engineering teams.

Here's what you will do:

  • You will install development releases of SUSE Enterprise Storage platforms either automatically or manually in cloud-based, virtualized or physical environments

  • You will develop test automation for release validation with scripting languages

  • You will troubleshoot issues on test platforms

  • You will perform manual tests in the areas that are not covered yet or that cannot be covered by automated tests

  • You will also perform exploratory testing in order to discover new test scope in areas of the product where potential issues could exist.

Your ability to learn fast and to be able to think on your feet will be key to this role. In addition to this, we would expect you to have the following skills:

  • You have programming skills and have an interest in growing these skills

  • You have testing experience, preferably in an agile environment

  • You are proven to be a good team player with excellent communication skills

  • You have a good proficiency in English.

The following experience would be useful, but not necessary as training can be provided:

  • Close collaboration with Software Engineering teams - in SCRUM agile setup preferably

  • Hands on experience with Ceph and/or Enterprise Storage infrastructures (EMC, NetApp...)

  • Hands on experience with Public Clouds (AWS, GCP, Azure or others) and/or OpenStack

  • Experience contributing to open source projects or being an open source maintainer

  • Knowledge of test automation frameworks and tools (Cucumber and/or openQA are a big plus)

  • At ease with Linux installation and operations on servers... also the year of Linux on the Desktop was a long time ago for you :)

  • Practical experience with Terraform and Salt

  • More generally, understanding of modern software development, Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery, and infrastructure-as-code

Why work with us?

  • We are a tightly-knitted global team that is passionate about Free, Libre & Open Source Software development

  • We enjoy being successful as a team and consequently foster the SCRUM values, focus, courage, openness, commitment and respect

  • We are flexible on working hours

  • We organize regular events to build up relationships and friendship within and across teams. These range from informal meet and drink sessions to themed multi-day events in off-site locations

  • Our work environment is fun and creative with massage room, big open community area, games room (eg. table tennis, pinball, table soccer, darts, video games), free flow soft drinks and fresh fruits

  • You get opportunities for travel to conferences around the world

  • You can be part of the global Open Source community!
