PROJECT DESCRIPTION::

We actively build an open-source database release automation tool. Our segment, of the more, is a broadly defined DevOps market. Our vision is to be the easiest, safest, and most powerful community-led database change management solution. Downloaded more than 75 million times, our software enables DevOps teams around the globe to accelerate the software delivery process by automating database updates.

Our worldwide community contributes code improvements and our team reviews, tests, and delivers these improvements as community releases.

The goal of this role is to improve our testing frameworks as well as the number and quality of automated tests. Easier testing means easier, safer, and faster validation of community contributions. Contributors will know that their changes work (and don’t break anything else) and our team can accept and release community innovation faster.

This job is an opportunity to collaborate with open-source engineers all around the world, showcase your technical ability, and have a positive impact on a global scale. You should have a passion for test engineering and automation and enjoy working in an Agile/Scrum development team.
