Software QA Engineer
selenium javascript jenkins qa linux testing May 11

What we do

Practichem, a Raleigh-based biotech firm focused on speeding antiviral cures to market, uses a patented protein chromatography instrumentation platform to deliver time and cost savings in the race to deliver critical viral health solutions worldwide. 

Chromatography instrument technology lags well behind consumer tech. Many current scientific instruments are controlled by 1993-era software. When compared to current technology, chromatography instruments do not store and share data well. Studies reveal scientists spending the majority of their applied time extracting, converting, and loading data as part of their workflow. This is not a research science problem, or a chromatographic problem. This requires a software technology solution.

Practichem believes scientific instrument software should be as intuitive to use as a smart phone app. We’re setting a new standard for the laboratory by creating browser based software that runs our scientific instruments. Help us drive innovation to the laboratory for greater discovery and collaboration.

Who we are

Practichem is a different kind of company and we like it that way. We have incredibly high standards and hire exceptional people who enjoy pushing themselves to perform at their highest levels every day. Join our team and enjoy an environment that appreciates hard work and achievements. 

What we expect

You appreciate a start-up environment free from bureaucracy. You thrive on open discussion. You have incredibly high standards for documentation and testing procedures. Organization and consistency are standard operating procedures for you.

This must excite you. You must be curious and practical. You will be expected to challenge and be challenged, to create and innovate. Practichem's work style is not for everyone. 

What you will do

  • Manage software testing and strategy.
  • Update tests to reflect the latest user stories.
  • Devise client and server system tests.
  • Write automated integration tests, maintain and update existing tests.
  • Participate in design discussions.
  • Test software and hardware on web applications and instrumentation.
  • Clearly and consistently document issues, bugs, and testing procedures.
  • Prepare and present technical information to departmental, cross-departmental, and executive groups.
  • Provide subject matter expertise and reach out for help when needed.
  • Juggle fast changing priorities, be process minded, and detail driven.

Preferred experience and skills

  • Bachelor's  degree plus at least 5 years relevant experience or demonstrated technical competencies plus at least 5 years relevant experience.
  • Javascript
  • Jenkins, Selenium, or Cucumber
  • JIRA or similar tracking system
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills.
  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills.
  • Understand and analyze complex issues.
  • Work with minimal supervision and document daily goals.
  • Have strong organizational skills.
  • Experience in scientific instrumentation.
  • Experience with databases.
  • Start-up environment experience.

What we offer

  • Competitive compensation and benefits. We work reasonable hours and rarely get called on nights, weekends, or holidays.
  • We support remote work.
  • You'll work alongside other accomplished engineers and scientists.
  • Choose a Mac or a PC. You can run Windows or a Linux distro.
  • Join Practichem and get $500 in cozy cash to set your workspace how you want. Buy a super mouse, a wrist thingy, a special chair, plant, mood ring, or maybe a Maneki-neko?

Fun

Make sure you’re having fun at work -- meet new friends, push yourself in new ways, try new things. If you aren’t having fun at some level, you’ll be unhappy. We don’t want that. We want you to work hard, love what you do, and have fun.

QA Automation Engineer

Location:

Nuremberg, Germany

Prague, Czech Republic

Remote office optional


As a QA Engineer involved in testing and validation you are here to push the SUSE products to their limits. In order to deliver a product, which is aligned with our customers' expectations and conforms to the highest level of quality standards, you will assist the development team in identifying problems early. This would require you to write test cases while simultaneously planning, designing, developing and maintaining automation tools with various programming and scripting languages.


As part of a fast-paced agile engineering team you will be testing cutting-edge technology, while it is being integrated into new releases and updates of SUSE products. At the same time you will be monitoring new releases and product fixes to ensure that no regressions occur. We would expect you to contribute to the new test strategies and to help broaden the test scope, while improving the efficiency of testing wherever possible so as to reduce the effort.


The product depends on a tightly-controlled continuous integration, which is ever-growing in size and coverage. We would require you to help our own team to maintain the test suite and contribute by providing new test scripts, while supporting engineers in developing their own test cases.


We also need someone who is able to document strategies and test cases clearly and concisely in a way that could be shared and easily communicated across members in the QA and engineering teams.


Here's how:

  • You will install development releases of the SUSE products either automatically or manually in cloud-based, virtualized or physical environments
  • You will run testing automation
  • You will regularly test software and security updates on older versions of the product as part of the maintenance service, which we provide to our customers
  • You will troubleshoot issues on test platforms
  • You will perform manual tests in the areas that are not covered yet or that cannot be covered by automated tests
  • You will also perform exploratory testing in order to discover new test scope in areas of the product where potential issues could exist.

Your ability to learn fast and to be able to think on your feet will be key to this role. In addition to this, we would expect you to have the following skills:

  • You are familiar with Linux environments
  • You have programming skills and have an interest in growing these skills
  • You have testing experience, preferably in an agile environment
  • You are proven to be a good team player with excellent communication skills
  • You have a good proficiency in English.

The following experience would be useful, but not necessary (training can be provided):

  • Close collaboration with Software Engineering teams - in an agile SCRUM or Kanban setup preferably
  • Hands on experience with Public Clouds (AWS, GCP, Azure or others) and/or OpenStack
  • Experience contributing to open source projects or being an open source maintainer
  • Knowledge of test automation frameworks and tools (Cucumber and/or openQA are a big plus)
  • At ease with Linux installation and operations on servers... also the year of Linux on the Desktop was a long time ago for you :)
  • Practical experience with Terraform and Salt
  • More generally, understanding of modern software development, Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery, and infrastructure-as-code

Why work with us:

  • We are a tightly-knitted global team that is passionate about Free, Libre & Open Source Software development
  • We enjoy being successful as a team and consequently foster the SCRUM values, focus, courage, openness, commitment and respect
  • We are flexible on working hours
  • We organize regular events to build up relationships and friendship within and across teams. These range from informal meet and drink sessions to themed multi-day events in off-site locations
  • We do regular hackathons and workshops on company, department and team levels
  • Our work environment is fun and creative with massage room, big open community area, games room (eg. table tennis, pinball, table soccer, darts, video games), free flow soft drinks and fresh fruits
  • You get opportunities for travel to conferences around the world
  • You can be part of the global Open Source community!

QA Engineer
Impala  
qa testing cs javascript api dot net Dec 09 2019

Hello!

Thanks for taking a look at the job description for QA Engineer at Impala. We felt a little bit impersonal just throwing you right in there with words like “revolutionizing” and “disrupting”.

As such, we want you to know that the person that wrote this job description apologises in advance for any clichés, tropes or sudden-insecurity-driven-panic-attacks that you might find in the description below.

What Is Impala Now?

Impala makes building travel software incredibly easy. We provide hotels with a powerful data management platform that makes connecting to software, hardware and room distributors extremely easy. Think Twilio for Travel.

We launched in January 2019 and since then have grown at - quite frankly - a ridiculous old clip. Our technology is already installed in hundreds of hotels worldwide, on six continents and categorises more than 1 billion data points.

We are a team 20+ exceptional people split across engineering, product and commercial that have built a fantastic community.

Where Is Impala Going?

We’re supported by some of the best investors in the business, the early stage backers behind Deliveroo, PillPack, SecretEscapes, Zoopla, Trivago and more. They’re on board because of our vision - revolutionizing a $1.6 trillion dollar market that’s been out-of-date for 20 years.

Within the next two years, 25% of hotel bookings worldwide will flow through Impala technology and the product that we’re building will support the entire ecosystem of travel technology (we already have over a thousand companies signed up).

Anyone travelling anywhere will interact with products powered by Impala and to achieve this we’re growing the team to 50 people within the next year.

What Will I Be Doing?

Brace yourself for some bullet points:

  • You will be developing processes and systems to increase the reliability of our API and its supporting systems.
  • You will increase understanding across the engineering department of testing best practices and methodologies and their appropriate usage.
  • You will be building automated systems to reduce the need for manual verificiation of data coming from hotels.
  • You will report directly to the VP Engineering on testing performance and coverage.

What Sort of Person Are You Looking For?

  • Someone with experience in both manual and automated testing of APIs, microservices and web front ends, using Javascript.
  • Someone that has worked with stakeholders to ascertain project requirements and translated these into test plans.
  • Someone with experience working in a rapidly evolving and delivery-focused environment.
  • Someone that is deeply technical and collaborative.
  • Ideally, someone with experience working remotely.
  • Ideally, someone with experience with CI technologies (CircleCI/AWS), .NET applications and API technology.

Where Will I Work?

This is a remote position (all of our engineering team and some of our other staff members are distributed). This means you can work from anywhere +/- 2 Hours of London, timezone wise (and less than a 3 hour flight). As part of that:

  • We offer an office stipend (you can furnish a home office or choose a coworking space near you).
  • We give you an additional significant start-up equipment budget for things like monitors, keyboards, headphones etc.
  • You’ll travel once a quarter to meet the rest of the engineering team somewhere in Europe.
  • You’ll have a budget to travel to team socials if you’d like to meet everyone in person more frequently.

Please note, we only accept candidates in Western Europe because of timezone and travel time differences. We make no exceptions (we don’t have time to!).

What Do You Offer In Return?

As a member of the Impala team, you’ll have access to:

  • Working with some of the best and brightest minds in their field, helping you to achieve the best that you can.
  • A culture that celebrates success, reliability and building a great community.
  • A top of market salary. If you’re truly great, we’ll pay what we need to.
  • Equity in an honest-to-god-could-buy-a-yacht-later company. Travel is a huge industry and infrastructure is a huge part of that.
  • A minimum of 36 days paid holiday per year. Unlimited holiday means you never take it, we just decided to give you a lot.
  • A professional development budget. That we make sure you spend with frequent PD sessions.
  • Generous maternity and paternity leave.
  • Health and wellbeing scheme. Including access to Headscape, Meditation/Stress management, Massage Lottery, Health Food Voucher etc.
  • A bunch of great benefits, like private health insurance, cheaper gym membership, cycle-to-work scheme, an everlasting friendship with the author of this post, annual “un-sick” day and many more.

Senior Software Engineer
cs azure senior backend javascript html Dec 03 2019

Compensation: $110,000

Do you do your own dishes? We've got a job for you (and it's not dishwashing ;-) ).

Do you put them in the sink and expect someone else to do them? Move on, please.

Do you get pissed (in a professional way) when someone else leaves their dishes in the sink?  Please apply!

TrainerRoad is looking to expand our engineering group. We're looking for smart software engineers who "get things done." We’re interested in remote candidates in the USA or candidates interested in working in our Reno office.

Areas of work include ASP.NET MVC Backend, API, Workers, Micro Services, MS SQL Azure, Azure Queues/Tables, Azure Blob Storage, SignalR, and ASP.NET Core (on our roadmap), Azure monitoring and administration.

We're looking to hire: 1x Web Backend Developer

Web Development

You'd be joining other engineers who are focused on the backend of our website.

The backend team is the hub between our apps (iOS/Android/PC/Mac), front-end website and data storage. We have a massive amount of data, and it's very likely that you might queue up tens of millions of items to be processed quickly and efficiently. 

You'll also manage integrations with external APIs. You'll need to do all of this while not breaking our current system.

Cool Things we Do

  • Every PR has a set of unit tests and automated UI tests run against it.
  • Every PR is code reviewed.
  • We have a dedicated QA team to manually check your PR (it requires four testers to sign off).
  • Every PR that is approved is automatically deployed (CI).
  • We've got a beta system that has a flow of production data that helps you develop and test your code without worry of breaking things.
  • Everything is hosted on Azure. There's plenty of dev/beta/test servers and databases to use.
  • The web team has its own Product Manager.
  • We run two-week sprints.  The web team reviews, estimates, and discusses all sprint issues before they are free to be worked.
  • We often pair program.
  • The majority of our engineers are remote.
  • We have a front-end team that works in Angular 2+ and React (meaning you won't have to do UI work).
  • We have a skilled design team that handles the HTML/LESS for the website (again, no UI work for you).

Who We're Looking For

We want smart engineers who get shit done! Not only do you have to be smart, you have to be pragmatic.

Let's say you need to paint a room white.

Smart and Pragmatic Engineer: A pragmatic engineer fills up a sprayer (rather than use a paintbrush), gets to work, and makes sure they don't paint themselves into a corner.

Smart Engineer (but not pragmatic): A smart engineer who's not pragmatic might design a system to change the color of the room in just 30 seconds.  Sure, it would take 2 months to build the system but we could change colors so quickly!  It's totally optimized for repainting!

If the second example sounds like you, please do not apply.  We know it's fun to go hog wild in projects but we need to "get shit done".  There's a whole line of other engineers and designers waiting for that room to get painted so they can do their own work on it.

We're a Team, not a Family

It sounds harsh to say, but we're not a Family. I know lots of businesses call themselves a family, but I think it's BS. If you get drunk at work and yell at someone, we're going to let you go (although we would give Grandma a pass at Thanksgiving).

It's better to think of TrainerRoad like a sports team. Everyone has their role and their jobs.  It's our jobs as managers to bring new hires up to speed, train them in our system, and coach them to be successful.

If someone is not performing, we need to talk to them, coach them, find out what's going wrong and where we can improve.  If someone just can't perform to the standard level of the team and we can't coach them to get better, we have to let that person go.

Another clear sign that you have a high-performance team is that if everyone would "enthusiastically rehire" each other for their current roles.  It really makes work wonderful when you respect, trust and value your co-workers.

Required Technology Experience

  • C# Experience - Intermediate to Advanced proficiency
  • Cloud Experience - Azure or AWS

Optional Technology Experience

  • ASP.net MVC
  • LINQ
  • Web API
  • Azure
  • SQL
  • Build/Test CI (We use TeamCity)

Work Remote or in Reno, Nevada

We're looking for the best candidate we can find in the US. Three-quarters of our development team work remotely. It works very well with the help of Slack and Github.

We expect remote employees to overlap at least 6 hours with the Reno, Nevada office (we're there 8am-5pm Pacific time).

Salary

We're looking to hire engineers for 110k/year.  If you ask for more, we'll reject your application. If you're interested in the company please subscribe to our RSS feed at jobs.trainerroad.com for when a higher level job posting is open.

Perks

Your Resume should have:

  • Links to any open source projects you've contributed to (not required)
  • Github/StackOverflow username if you'd like
  • Examples of experience in the "Optional Technology Experience" area

Your Cover Letter should have:

  • Let us know why you want to work for TrainerRoad

We also Require

The best engineers only want to work with other great engineers. We've found that the best way to find great engineers is to have them code, not just answer trivia questions during an interview.

That's why we require applications to do a refactoring exercise as part of their job submission. The right candidate won't find this a pain in the ass; it should be enjoyable.

This also weeds out the vast majority of candidates who just fire off resumes everywhere.

You can find the refactoring exercise with instructions here: https://github.com/trainerroad/BackendRefactorChallenge

Excited about our Company?

In your application let us know why you want to work with us and why you think you'd be a good fit for our company.

FAQs

Do I have to be a cyclist to apply?

Nope! Not everyone in the company is a cyclist. It helps if you're an active racer but it's not required. If you are a racer or TrainerRoad user, let us know!

What's unlimited vacation mean?

The CEO of TrainerRoad used to be an engineer at a Fortune 500 company where life was a grind. We believe employees put out their best work when they are happy and not burnt out.

If your brain just isn't working at 3 pm, we encourage employees to go home and rest up. It does no one any good to sit and stare at the computer screen for another two hours. We don't track that time.

Employees generally shoot for around four weeks of REAL vacation time (no slack checking) but some take more, and some take less.  The thing we care about is how productive you can be and how much value you can add to the company. Bottom line, we want people who are passionate and get things done. If you meet those requirements, everything else works itself out.

That being said, if you end up taking massive amounts of vacation, come in late, leave early and aren't producing outstanding work we're going to have a problem.

How do you work?

We're big believers in Deep Work and Flow. If you're not turning off Slack (snooze), going DND on your phone and shutting off the world for multiple hours a day you're probably not being as productive as you could be. The idea is a developer should be able to work on a chunk of work that they understand distraction-free for multiple hours totally.  This is the only way the company moves forward.

We try to work as pragmatically as we can.  We have excellent designers on staff who go from mockups to responsive HTML with light javascript work.

Development uses Github with a strict pull request process. We test, comment, refactor and improve each other's pull requests.

We have partial test coverage, and we're constantly improving in that area.

We have a QA team (we call them the Test Team) that checks every PR and does full regression checks for each App release, and we're continually getting more automated.

We have an Automation Team that only focuses on writing UI tests to speed up testing and find bugs faster.

We can one-click deploy our app on Alpha, Beta, and Production channels.

We can one-click deploy our website to Azure (includes smoke tests and warm up).

We have nightly builds that deploy to Test Flight and Google Play.

We often pair program via Slack.

We work off bi-weekly sprint issue lists on Github.

Developers get super-fast machines and awesome equipment. If it's going to let you be more productive, we want to spend the money on it.

You didn't ask about education, what's required?

Please put your education on your resume, but we're not going to reject someone because they don't have a degree in Computer Science. We understand that some of the best and most passionate engineers are self-taught.

How long until I hear a response from you guys? What's the process?

If you don't follow directions in this job posting, you'll be immediately rejected.  

If you did follow directions, our goal is to review your refactoring within a week of submitting your application. All refactoring reviews are done "blind"; meaning the reviewer doesn't know your name, resume or where you're from.  Code is code, and it should be reviewed that way without bias.

If we like your refactoring, we'll have you do a coding logic quiz. Nothing super in-depth CS wise.  We've found that the candidates who do the best on these exercises are very successful at TrainerRoad.

We'll take the top combined refactoring and coding quiz results and set you up for a team interview.

If the team likes you; we'll then set up a pair programming session with you and an engineer.  We'll give you a tour of our codebase and work on a real issue. This gives you a chance to run away from our codebase screaming and also demonstrate that you can communicate with us.

If all of the above is good, you're hired!  

I know this sounds like a lot of hoops to jump through, but it works so so well!  Once you're onboard, you'll love that everyone else went through the same process and is up to "your level" in terms of "get-shit-doneness".

What's with the dishes analogy?

Doing your own dishes is a GREAT analogy for our culture.  Don't leave shit around for someone else to clean up.  Do your own dishes.  Do you see someone making a mess? Let's discuss it (in a productive manner) so that we can nip that behavior in the bud.

We know we're really doing well when someone points out a manager not "doing their dishes" or causing an extra headache for a process that doesn't add value (it happens). Seriously, we need employees to call managers out on this.  I'm the CEO writing this; please oh please tell me if I'm messing up or not walking the talk.

Want more detail about the benefits?

You can see a preview of TrainerRoad's health benefits here: https://www.zenefits.com/benefits-preview/?token=3733c1ac-fc72-420a-b224-d9a25bcc1e27

This is the longest job posting ever, when does it end?

Right now! Congrats if you made it this far! We look forward to looking at your resume and refactoring exercise.

TrainerRoad is an equal opportunity employer.

Spiffy Combination of Release/Process/QAEngineer
Dorsata  
qa testing design healthcare Nov 10 2019

Employer's note: We're looking for someone in the DC to Richmond, VA area-ish; however, we could live with the NE corridor-ish. More in the posting.

Job description

We're looking for a new team member to drive the release management process behind our small-and-mighty engineering team. We believe that our ability to ship software quickly is a key competitive advantage, and as-such are continually driving ourselves towards a fully realized continuous delivery process. In this role, you will be expected to be a leader towards accelerating this effort, which entails overseeing the full delivery lifecycle - planning the release process as features are being designed / developed, aiding the engineering team's build out of functional & automated testing efforts, assessing the quality criteria of what is shippable, and communicating the timeline and expectations to stakeholders. Furthermore, you’ll be responsible for driving a company culture of fast, reliable software delivery by researching the state of the space, prioritizing areas of investment, and partnering with others to move us forward.  This all means that you'll be helping our with the actual testing of the code and driving improvements to how we test.  Should we change how we're using our tools to make this better? Drive that discussion. Yes, we're looking for a combination of all of these things!

*** 
Update on 'Location' : So, while we do have the 'remote' flag on, we're *ideally* looking for someone in the Richmond, VA area-ish (think: 2 hour train ride, so DC to Raleigh to Charlottesville); however, we could live with the NE corridor-ish (think: <2 hour flight; our VP Engineering is near Boston), too. Our CEO works in an office in Arlington, VA, if you want to keep him company. Or, put another way: are you available to be in the Richmond, VA virtual office once every month-ish? Yeah, That'd be greaaaaaat... Don't forget the cover page on those TPS reports either.
****

Ideally you are as eager and passionate as we are about:

  • Crafting thoughtful user experiences that help people (in our case doctors, nurses, and medical assistants) make the best decisions possible while removing tedious BS from their daily workflow.

  • reducing the large amount of time that clinicians spend on documenting what they have already done (go ahead -- ask your doctor about how much they like their EHR (electronic health record) next time you’re sick)

  • re-imagining not only the traditional user experiences & workflow of EHRs, but also the medium through which the latest medical best practices can be actionably and seamlessly incorporated into delivering care.

OK, you may not be super-passionate about these things right now (let’s face it -- medical workflows and “EHRs” sound pretty boring on paper), but you will be. Why? Because you’ll be building software that fixes INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING experiences for doctors.  And it’s incredibly satisfying to modernize, replace & improve outdated, problematic software.  It’s important. And you’ll be loved/adored for it.  (And once you see the way this stuff is currently done, you’ll be left scratching your head or otherwise disappointed)

A little about us...

We’re a small-but-mighty with funding and a strategic partnership with the most influential voice in women’s health: the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (ACOG).

Our mission is to remove the digital roadblocks that interfere with healthcare providers’ ability to spend quality time with patients (Oh, and we try to help them make better decisions along the way as well).

...A Lot About You

Ideally, you are a multitalented wunderkind who runs circles around each of the below bullet points, but let’s be real: while some of these are must-have, many are wish-list.  We may have gotten a bit carried away with these, so if feel your unique combination of skills is close-ish to the mark, don’t hesitate to reach out. In fact, do so enthusiastically.

Responsibilities

  • Prepare test & release plans for features in design / development.
  • Facilitate the creation of multi-staged rollout plans with a variety of stakeholders.
  • Work with engineering and customer success to define and maintain quality standards.
  • Lead the pre-release acceptance testing process along with the product manager.
  • Oversee (i.e. be the main point of contact) during the release process.
  • Prepare and distribute release notes as features are delivered.
  • Lead the organization in continually making improvements to the release process.
  • Make sure things actually get tested (while we strongly believe in developers/reviewers testing, realistically, you'll be doing some of this too)

Requirements

  • Demonstrated success building sane release processes within organizations
  • Strong written and oral communication skills that ensure that people are speaking the same language about expectations and responsibilities
  • A demeanor that brings a calm confidence to the sometimes frenetic world of releasing software (or convince us that a frenetic demeanor is actually the right answer!)
  • Experience with quality assurance processes, standards, and tools
  • Enough technical understanding to discuss feature nuances with engineers
  • Ability to both pay attention to the details, and also keep a bead on the broader context.  Put another way, you don't let the perfect get in the way of the good.
  • You've worked at startups before or have always been looking for an excuse to
  • You work well in a loosely structured PM/Managerial environment (we’re agile with a “little a”)

Us + You?

As the newest member our engineering team, you’ll be an integral part of every aspect of our business strategy, dev roadmap, technology architecture decisions, and, undoubtedly, will wear a lot of hats.  

One of the hats -- in addition to your release/process/QA hats -- will, like all of our employees, be the Customer Hat. At Dorsata, we are fervent (rabidly obsessive, really) believers in frequent, high-touch interactions with our involved, loyal customer base, who drives our roadmap.  As we've grown, developers are often removed from the day-to-day, but you should be the type of person who is at least able to empathize and ask good questions of customers.

Obligatory Message to Third Party Recruiters:

If you're a third-party recruiter who is looking to send us resumes, please don't. We don't accept resumes from third-party recruiters. No, we're not interested in how Yet Another Recruiting company can help us make the world a better place, etc.; we already know good people who do that when we need to. (We're amazed at the number of random LinkedIn messages from recruiters we see, both on the hiring and job seeking side. Yes, you're great human beings, but please move along.)

About Dorsata

Dorsata’s clinical workflow intelligence platform is designed to work both top of and inside of the existing electronic health records (EHRs) that our customers use. The ACOG Prenatal Record -- our flagship product for the Dorsata platform -- is an AngularJS/Rails SPA designed collaboratively with women’s health providers to support the way that they work & think -- not tell them how to work & think (or add additional clerical burdens to their already-busy day). We want practitioners of women’s health to feel like they are using a piece of software not only designed for them, but by them.  

More About Us:

How We Interview & Hire

Like many of the other startups you are currently perusing on stackoverflow/angellist/hired/vettery/reddit/linkedIn/etc., our interview process begins with an intro call to help you learn more about the role, for us to hear more about you, and to help the two of us decide if Dorsata is a mutual fit. If we move forward, the next step will be a more in depth call with us that dives into some problem solving about healthcare.  Based on that problem solving exercise, we do a quick real-world based coding test to make sure you actually have a little AngularJS (or React or Vue or AngularX) / what a computer is, though for this interview, we make actually just build something that's a little broken and have you help figure out where.  

Full disclosure: we're still figuring out how to interview for this position.  Feel free to game the system by suggesting how we should interview for this role. Even just mentioning this section in your cover letter would be nice to tell us that you actually read this. You'd be surprised at how many people don't.

We're small, so we also like to have people talk to our CEO as part of our hiring process.

Avanoo  
qa senior testing Nov 06 2019

First, a bit about Avanoo

Have you ever wondered what the most successful people in the world have, that the rest of us don’t? No, it’s not a high IQ. And no, it’s not that they studied more than the rest of us at school. There are a whole host of attributes that these people embody, which are never taught in school. Things like perseverance, passion, laser-like focus, a positive mindset, and the list goes on and on.

Avanoo exists to help employees at Fortune 1,000 companies embody these attributes, through 3-minute-a-day video programs and deep analytics that help us understand what their people need the most and predict what sort of content can drive the most impact.

If the skills we learn in school are the applications we use to get through life, the attributes we help people embody at Avanoo are like the operating system.

We're doing quite well

We just completed our series A round of investment, grew more than 3x over last year, and unlike many companies in Silicon Valley, we're profitable.

We've proven over and over again that we can help enterprises drive real impact to their bottom line just through the magic concoction we've put together. For example, with one of our clients, they were able to directly connect millions of dollars in new product innovations after 2 years of working with us. 

The bottom line is, we're scaling so fast that our existing dev team can hardly keep up!

What you'll be working on

That’s where YOU come in: Helping us sustain this incredible growth, by building automated test cases to help us continue to scale the platform.

We will rely on you to generate well articulated test cases and determine the positive, negative and boundary cases from working with our cross-functional teams in fast-paced, agile, and release driven environment. It will be imperative to have strong technical skills to understand the different systems under test to compose the needed tests. You must have an outstanding working knowledge of functional, unit, and automation testing and be capable of working with automated framework structures


If being part of a team that is building the first-ever platform that tracks and optimizes the human operating system, then read on!


Skills & Requirements

  • 5+ years of experience developing reliable, automated test cases for complex web user interfaces
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Deep expertise with Selenium
  • Experience achieving high test coverage for products with real-world usage
  • Experience and high comfort level with Test-driven development is required

  • Solid grasp of OOP Principles and polymorphism

ECi Lasso is seeking a Senior Back-End Developer to continue to provide the best in Software Solutions to small and medium-sized businesses

ECi Lasso is the developer of the leading cloud-based, on-demand Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software for the new-home-building industry.

We have experienced consistent growth during the last decade and our user base asks a lot of our system. Scale, reliability, and innovation keep us learning on a daily basis. You will join our server-side team to enhance and maintain our server-side Java 8 and Kotlin applications.

We have distributed systems hosted in AWS, which are presented to our users through an Angular/React frontend.

Moving forward, the biggest challenge we face is scaling our systems to work with large data-sets and high system load. You’ll help us build systems that can easily scale up and down the number of processing nodes as needed and implement rate-limiting to ensure rogue systems don’t impact our SLAs for other applications.

Additionally, you’ll improve the performance of our main data store by adding or changing indexes as appropriate, add caching functionality where possible and set up monitoring to catch performance bottlenecks early on.

Culture and Work Environment

As a fully remote team, communication is extremely important - there is no chance to drop in on interesting discussions around the water cooler or to see if someone is busy just by glancing at their desk. We have systems to signal busy-ness; regular meetings and stand-ups to disseminate information, frequent one-on-ones to ensure there are no frustrations building up, a code of conduct and a formal complaint process to resolve conflicts early-on.

As a key member of our server-side team, you’ll specifically be expected to:

  • Design and build API endpoints for our internal and public APIs
  • Architect efficient task scheduling and processing systems
  • Keep up-to-date on new AWS features and integrate them into our tech stack if appropriate
  • Implement monitoring systems for performance bottlenecks on our main datastore
  • Determine through performance profiling, where to add caching to our distributed systems and internal interfaces
  • Monitor the growth of our data-sets and assist in creating strategies to address the systems where growth could become an issue
  • Write effective high-quality code with a focus on performance and maintainability
  • Create reliable tests and work closely with our QA team for end-to-end testing

Requirements:

  • You thrive in a self-directed and open work environment. There’s no boss breathing down your neck, no deadlines, no fixed work hours and no in-office requirements. It’s really important that you can manage your time well, and you know what you need in order to do your job well (e.g. what work hours to pick so you have enough time to communicate with team members effectively)
  • Deep knowledge of the OOP paradigm, experience with functional programming and other approaches is a plus
  • Experience building complex systems with many moving parts, such as different protocols, varying restrictions on latency or CAP parameters
  • Experience building and maintaining CI/CD systems is a bonus
  • Excellent knowledge of static type systems and compiled languages
  • Deep knowledge of various data stores such as SQL, document stores, key-value stores or queuing systems, as well as their performance characteristics and scalability issues
  • Good understanding of caching and cache invalidation strategies

Interested?

ECi Lasso’s vision is to be the technology hub for new home sales in North America by providing a unique combination of remarkable software and expert services. To achieve our vision we need great developers. That’s why we’ve created a great work environment, encouraging self-direction, personal development, and teamwork.

Java Language Specialist Build Engineer
java cpp python c php saas Nov 03 2019

ActiveState Platform - made by developers for developers! We are reinventing build engineering with an on-demand SaaS Platform and CLI tool that lets developers automate the building of any runtime environment using any open source language ecosystem on any platform. In Beta right now, we support Python and Perl and we're hiring to add more languages and packages! We’re building an ambitious language distribution platform so that no engineer ever has to suffer dependency hell again, and we need your help to add Java to it!

This position is open to full-time telecommuters anywhere in Canada. You can also choose to work from our headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, BC.

This position is open to both junior (including fresh out of school) and senior applicants. The salary for this position will be commensurate with your experience.

What You’ll Be Doing

As a Java Language Specialist on our team, you are responsible for using your deep understanding of Java; it’s internals, dependency management, idioms and community to teach our Platform to build and distribute Java for multiple Operating Systems.  You'll be responsible for building a Java runtime from its source code and writing software to consume everything in the Java ecosystem.  Note this is not a Java development role, rather you'll be writing software to create custom Java distributions and this software won't necessarily be written in Java.

Our day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.

Our team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and Google Drive.

We like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.

What’s In It For You

  • Working for a stable and growing company that offers the environment and personal growth potential of a start-up.
  • The chance to work with a smart, passionate team of people.
  • Competitive salary, bonus, and stock option plan.
  • Comprehensive benefits package and health/wellness credit program.

Requirements

  • Deep understanding of Java internals and ecosystem
  • Experience with C/C++ programming on multiple operating systems (Windows/UNIX/OSX) and the build system for a Java distribution (e.g. OpenJDK)
  • Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical. You’ll need to work closely with your developer teammates, as well as be able to have coherent conversations with people from QA, sales, marketing, and other parts of the company.
  • A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.

Assets

If you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:

  • You are a maintainer, contributor to a Java distribution (e.g. OpenJDK, Oracle Java) or have a popular Java based Open Source project. We make special accommodations to help you maintain those activities.
  • Experience working on a build system.
  • Experience building a core Java distribution from source code
  • Agile processes, including breaking large projects up into smaller stories, estimation, working in branches (GitHub Flow), code review, and CI.
  • C or C++ code and debugging compiler issues across platforms.
  • Perl, Python, Tcl, or PHP, especially an understanding of their respective language communities and their toolchains.
  • Big iron operating systems including Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX.
  • Build tools such as make, autotools, bazel, etc.

Working At ActiveState

ActiveState has a collaborative, respectful, and professional culture. We’re all about working together to find the best solutions, and making sure that the experience of doing so is positive for everyone involved. There is a commitment from the CEO on down to making work at ActiveState a great experience for all.

Our company is a team of 40+ and growing, with 2/3rds of the positions in technical roles. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but we’re flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events.

Our vision is to have an ActiveState solution on every device on every planet, so we certainly don’t lack for ambition! But even though we’re ambitious we don’t expect work to become your life. We know you will do your best work in a positive environment free from death marches. For more about working at ActiveState and our Glassdoor rating go to www.activestate.com/careers.

How To Apply

Please submit your contact info, resume, and a cover letter below. Submissions without a cover letter will not be considered. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are committed to creating a welcoming environment for everyone at ActiveState and we welcome applicants from all walks of life.

Software Development Engineer in Test
python javascript java ruby saas qa Nov 03 2019

Contrast Security is the world’s leading provider of security technology that enables software applications to protect themselves against cyber attacks. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate analysis and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has intelligent agents that work actively inside applications to prevent data breaches, defeat hackers and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production.

The Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) believes the reward for a job well done is another job. You would rather spend your time enabling engineering teams to more effectively write their own tests than write tests for them. You thrive in an environment where there is something new to learn with each major effort. 

Imagine landing with an engineering team with a goal of improving their unit testing coverage.  Maybe they need help mocking services? Maybe they need help just refactoring a large group of tests during a system upgrade? Maybe they need help starting a load testing practice? Our teams will ask. You will research, implement and train.  When you are done with that job, a new one will await you with another of our teams.  

Responsibilities

  • Work with multiple agile teams to establish automated test metric goals and achieve them. 
  • Work with teams to set up processes, patterns and standards to increase unit test coverage
  • Work with teams to set up processes, patterns and standards to automate high value performance testing (benchmark, load and stress)
  • Work with teams to set up high value automated API tests
  • Working with the Ops teams to test infrastructure as code gets you a gold star
  • Contribute to our synthetic test infrastructure run against our production SaaS systems for real-time awareness of product uptime and functional stability.
  • Build and maintain expertise in several languages and their testing tool sets over time.
  • A passion for automation – a key team goal is to reduce daily toil through automation
  • Work cross-functionally within a service team and be a core contributor in every significant engineering solution that is delivered
  • Debug production issues across services and levels of the stack
  • Participate in on-call rotations, along with every member of the engineering team
  • Solid understanding of system design, including the operational trade-offs of various designs
  • Solid programming and troubleshooting skills. You may be called upon to help with systems written in Java, .NET, Ruby, Go, Python and Javascript. You won’t be expected to know everything, but we are looking for people who can dig through a codebase for debugging and commit tactical fixes opportunities.

About You

  • You don't love writing code, you love writing code that test's the code.
  • You have 5+ years in technology with at least three in a QA Automation Role or SDET
  • You love to break things, and you like to share how you did it.
  • You’re a storyteller with compelling stories about that time you learned something new in order to solve a problem for your company, and stories about the times you helped your team mates skill up.
  • You have powerful stories about the failures and mistakes you’ve made and the lessons learned. You share them as cautionary tales with your team mates.
  • You can find your way around a database, but you are better at mocking them.
  • You can demonstrate familiarity with common language frameworks. Java is preferred to start, but .NET, Ruby, Go, Python and Javascript are also key to our product offering.
  • You have a desire to make the Internet a safer place.
  • You have a passion for tools, testing frameworks, methodologies and implementations. You choose them based on the the best fit for the problem at hand. 
  • You approach problems from a product perspective, thinking through how the user will interact with what you're building.
  • You have strong communication skills. You ask questions, let others know when you need help, and tell others what you need. You write things down so someone else on your team can do them.
  • You're a problem solver. You believe the best work is the result of finding the simplest solution to complex challenges. We see simplicity as the greatest expression of intelligence and responsibility.
  • You see the big picture. You understand how the code you write interacts with systems and services, both internally and externally.

What We Offer

  • The opportunity to work with some of the highest performing individuals in the world with the goal of establishing memories of the best part of your career ever.
  • Competitive compensation
  • Daily in-office team lunches
  • Meaningful stock plans
  • Medical, dental, and vision benefits
  • Flexible paid time off 

By submitting your application, you are providing Personally Identifiable Information about yourself (cover letter, resume, references, or other employment-related information) and hereby give your consent for Contrast Security, and/ or our HR-related Service Providers, to use this information for the purpose of processing, evaluating and responding to your application for current and future career opportunities.
