Test Automation Developer

About the work

Are you ready for a challenge? Our QA team is growing and we are looking for another Test Automation Developer.  Here’s the scoop - you will need to be creative and work closely with our development team and be part of the code review and validation process. We are constantly working on expanding our automation areas and our goal is to automate as much as possible!  You will have the opportunity to work on multiple ongoing projects and be part of our pretty awesome scrum team! This is a challenging but rewarding opportunity to build something from the ground up and make it your own.

About you

You have a true love for QA and breaking things!  You love to hunt for bugs and investigate problems and you won’t stop until you determine the root cause. You understand that innovation is seldom a linear path, and sometimes you need to take a step to the side, or back, to allow for a new path to become clear.  You take pride in your own work and accomplishments, but just as much in the achievements of your team.  You are honest, upfront and don’t take yourself too seriously.


You have proven experience working with open source technology and always prefer to look for ways to automate tedious, repetitive tasks. Bonus points for you if you have experience creating automated scripts using Selenium or Cypress as part of a continuous integration process, preferably using Jenkins.
