The Software Engineer in Test will be responsible for boosting the testing efficiency of the entire Engineering department by building test tools, services, and frameworks for our complex lending platform. This person will work closely with QA, Dev, and DevOps.

The right candidate loves building tools for technical people. This person knows that a good tool is composed of a few things:

  2. Designed for thoughtful extensibility by fellow QA or Dev.
  3. Great tutorial and API documentation to easily promote adoption and contribution.

The right candidate is a developer who thinks testing is exciting and believes all forms (manual to automated) can be made faster, more efficient, and more accurate with the right kind of tools.

  • Engineers test their own code. Engineers in test/QA’s – work with Engineers to ensure the whole component design works well. Making sure we have headless API, right
    3rd party integrations, etc. That should be ENGINEER in TEST position, which means you do a lot of AUTOMATED testing ONLY. There might be some manual work, but the focus is on lowering manual work to 0% as soon as possible as we are heavily focused on scalability and performance.
  • The contractor receives the same benefits as internals.
  • The US-based team is in Chicago, IL.
  • There is also a large team in Europe, Ukraine (UA team works US hours till 3 pm EST).
  • Stand-ups 10-11 am EST, and all hands WED 10-11 am EST (All cadence meetings are before 12pm EST)
  • Ruby/RoR + Python + some Java
  • Testing is mainly done via Selenium + Cucumber
  • Monday – Thursday – daily releases (we have end to end CI/CD using Cirkle CI)
  • Codebase? – new code on Ruby 2.7.2., Rails 5.2.6. Reusable components, refactoring some things we’re doing. API’s for bank information – going to use these along across the entire codebase and multiple products.
    Architecture? Monolith.
  • Unit tests coverage? 70%. For some parts and 20% for other parts
  • Execution time less than 3 mins for regression testing.
  • Three interview stages:
  • 1 – Director of an Engineering interview – 30 mins
    2 – QA lead meeting – 60 mins deep tech dive
    3 – CEO meeting – 20 mins – culture fit

We are looking for the first Software Engineer in Test to join our team. Being the first is special because it sets the pattern for future hires in this position.

  • 5+ years of professional experience as a backend or QA software engineer for non-trivial web applications
  • Experience in an object-oriented programing language such as Ruby, Python, Java, etc.
  • Experience building libraries, CLI tools, and services for developers and QA
  • Strong ability to write technical documentation.

  • Extensive experience using SQL and working with Postgres
  • Experience working with Frontend developers
  • Strong experience in DevOps
  • Expertise in Ruby and Python
  • Experience in Data-Driven testing

You will be part of the QA team whose mission is not simply to test. Instead, the QA team’s mission is to protect the Business and Platform. Our QA team certainly does manual and automated testing. However, they also merge project branches, cut release branches, and perform release management and post-release monitoring because of their greater mission.

You will:

  • work closely with DevOps on improving the general execution time of our automated regression system.
  • Build custom Python and Ruby libraries that generate test data, such as product customers approved for a loan in testing.
  • Improve the thImprovety of QA’s automated testing development by designing and implementing better abstractions for the QA team to construct regression tests.
  • Will integrate into various 3rd party test tools to expand the type of testing QA can do.
  • Will build a system to track the long-term QA metrics desired by the VP of Engineering, such as the probability of test failure based on historical unit/regression test runs and code churn.
