  • Define and implement test strategies across multiple projects
  • Take ownership of our code coverage and develop a strategy to increase it over time
  • Work with the engineering team to choose the right tools to measure and enforce code quality

  • You can handle large projects independently with little supervision
  • A passion for quality and creating and managing test frameworks
  • A bachelor's degree in Computer Science/Software Engineering or equivalent industry - experience
  • A love for technology, and an insatiable curiosity for new tools to solve real problems
  • 5+ Years experience in a testing role/function

Bonus/Nice to haves:

  • Production experience with a large scale website (e-commerce would be ideal)
  • Experience with tests automation tools and frameworks

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Javascript (ES6), Typescript
  • React (ReactJS, React.js), Redux, RxJS

  • We’re growing fast. You will get in on the ground floor of something that’s going to change an entire industry.
  • Learn from the best. Our leadership team is experienced (eg., Google) and led the development of one of the top 15 apps in the US appstore (Square Cash).
  • Great technology stack -- React/Redux and friends. We’re going mobile, so that will be a great opportunity to stretch your skills with React Native.
  • The business makes sense. It’s straightforward, provides clear value to both store owners and to makers. You get to help change an industry for the better.
  • It’s beautiful. Work on something that’s well-designed, following the footsteps of Square.

About Us

Are you ready to change an industry? Excited to enter on the ground floor of a fast-paced, high-growth startup in a wide open market?

There are over 1M independent retailers in the US and Canada, doing more than twice the revenue of Walmart and Amazon combined. Economic data shows: compared to the big box stores, local retailers are flourishing because they offer a better shopping experience. However, the antiquated wholesale industry is holding independent stores back, and making life miserable for the makers trying to reach them.

Our goal at Faire is to rethink the wholesale model with an online marketplace that makes it easy for retailers and makers to connect and succeed together. Instead of flying all over the country to attend trade shows, retailers can visit our site to shop for hundreds of curated makers that they can try out totally risk-free. This revolutionary offering has drawn over 20,000 retailers to the Faire platform in less than a year after our launch.

Our founders led product and engineering for Square Capital ($10B deployed) and the Cash app (Square’s only app in the top 20 of the iOS app store). We're backed by some of the top VC funds including Sequoia, Khosla, and Forerunner, and we were named one of the top 8 companies at our Y-Combinator Demo Day last year.
