Seeq makes data analytics software for a big market that’s often overlooked by tech companies: industrial process data. Think pharmaceutical manufacturers, wind farms, and energy companies with tons of equipment and sensors. Our software engineers tackle hard problems in streaming calculation, storage and distributed computing, and we create elegant HTML5 data visualizations with smooth interactivity.

Our company is 100% remote and proud of it. You can work anywhere in a compatible time zone (we require an overlap of 8am-12pm Pacific). We use a variety of collaboration tools, like Zoom, Slack, and our homegrown (and open-sourced) Qube Virtual Office, which makes us feel like we're in the same building together. We use agile tenets to iterate on both our software and development processes. We have a wonderful team of kind-hearted, talented engineers that love to collaborate, teach each other new tricks, and build products that far exceed our customers’ expectations.

Our technology stack is largely Java / JVM languages on the backend and TypeScript / Angular on the frontend. The core of our product is a full-featured calculation engine that can perform complex math and execute machine learning algorithms on streaming time series data. 

JOB DESCRIPTION

This is not a black box testing position where we take requirements, turn them into test cases and then pass the tests. Unlike roles with similar names at other companies, Quality Engineers at Seeq aren't just manual testers. Everyone on the development team pitches in to do manual testing.

You will be an advocate for quality - continuously evaluating how and when testing is performed to figure out how it can be done earlier, better and faster.

You will invent new testing approaches, automate worthwhile quality checks, advocate for testability, and create tools that the team can use to improve quality.

You will understand the full scope of our product to a level beyond most of your colleagues.

SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS

You evangelize exploratory testing, test automation and you know who Cem Kaner is.

You love automating tests but understand the limitations of computers and the unique abilities of humans.

You are excited about digging into a system's API and finding out what makes it tick.

You’ve worked with frameworks and tools like Cucumber, Protractor, JMeter and Postman.

You use your knowledge of testing and testability to influence better software design, promote proper engineering practice, bug prevention strategies, and other advanced quality concepts.

You appreciate working on an Agile team because it allows you to test in lockstep with the creation of the software.

You’ve got a Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD in Computer Science or Engineering.

You are constantly finding ways to perfect your craft, be a better teammate, and come up with cool stuff. You listen, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

You are up for traveling periodically to hang out with your colleagues and get some face-to-face time.

You know how to balance life & work, and you don’t want a job that forces you to choose between them.

You want to work with a bunch of really smart people that love working together. You want to work for a startup with good investors and a bright future.

You will answer the following question in your application cover letter: “What was your most recent software testing innovation?”
