Duration: 8 months with potential conversion to perm

We're taking on bold challenges and we're looking for an experienced and motivated Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) to help us build high-quality, cutting-edge user experiences that transform the power of our global scale big data into intuitive interfaces. If you're passionate about using the latest technologies to deliver best-in-class apps and working in a fun, intense environment, where you'll collaborate every day with your team of talented developers, testers, and designers then please apply.

Who are we?

Our development teams focus on enabling our customers to solve their unique business challenges by leveraging the power of our big data and streaming data platforms. Our developers design solutions that rely on choosing the right tool for the job, often with cutting edge technologies. We offer a highly collaborative work environment where accountability, innovation, and initiative are valued and best practices, coding standards, and a test driven attitude are leveraged to produce software of the highest quality.

Who are you?

You are a curious, engaged and confident SDET who enjoys crafting automation solutions. You embrace collaboration and are driven to help your peers and team succeed. You are quick to identify problems and act to solve them, drawing on your team in the process. You have something to teach us and are not afraid to share it

What will you do?

You will spend every day working with some of the most talented developers and testers in the country to solve some very challenging business problems in our industry. As a part of the QA team, your focus will be to develop and deliver test automation software to expose defects and validate components and features. Your fellow team members will be doing the same in other cross-functional project teams, but you will all come together in support of maintaining and maturing our automation framework and the platform it is built on.

What do you need to bring to us?

  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience

  • 4+ years experience in QA testing (automation, regression, manual testing, etc.)

  • 4+ years experience in Java

  • Experience with one or more of the following: Groovy, Javascript, Scala, Hadoop, SQL

  • Enjoy working in an agile development environment with aggressive release schedules
