Software Quality Engineer

Virtual/Remote, US Full-time Allows remote

JOB DESCRIPTION

Seeq is a data analytics startup. What makes us different is that we’re going after 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. We’re applying a unique mix of technologies and a deep understanding of the problems faced by these industries to build and refine a product that's a huge leap over existing tools and methodologies.

This is not a black box software 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 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 write software testing scripts, 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.

Our company is 100% remote. You can work anywhere in the US (we're staying in compatible timezones for now). We use a variety of collaboration tools, like Zoom and Slack, which makes us feel like we’re in the same building together. We have a stacked team of kind-hearted, talented engineers that love to collaborate, teach each other new tricks, and build products that far exceed our customers’ expectations.

TECHNOLOGY STACK

  • Cucumber / Protractor
  • Javascript
  • Java / JVM languages
  • NoSQL databases (Cassandra, Elasticsearch, JanusGraph)
  • Node.js / AngularJS / TypeScript
  • Python

SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS

You are constantly finding ways to perfect your craft, be a better teammate, and come up with cool stuff.

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

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

You learn things quickly. You’re usually the one suggesting new technologies and raising the bar for the whole team.

You listen really well, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

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

You want to work with the tech stack we listed above, and on cloud platforms like EC2/GCE/Azure. You may be an expert at one (or more!) of these.

You may or may not be Batman and/or Catwoman.

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. And you want to work for a startup with good investors and a bright future.
