Software Test Engineer at North
Kitchener City, Ontario, CA

About you:

You are someone who is always thinking about how the customer will use the product while you take the time to dive “under the hood” and figure out how everything works.  You’re passionate about quality software and love working directly with different teams to achieve the common goal of building an amazing product that exceeds expectations.  You are naturally curious and always asking questions like “why does it work this way?” or “what happens if I do this?”, but you’re also extremely organized and someone who can be counted on to go that extra mile to make sure a project is successful.

About the role:

The software test engineer is someone who works on larger cross-functional software projects to help their team find bugs quickly which results in the team moving faster overall.  The test engineer is expected to look at the product and understand how a customer will use it and where it might fail.  Understanding this, the test engineer then determines the best approach to flush bugs out of the system whether it involves running manual tests, writing automated tests or another creative approach unique to the situation.  In some cases, the test engineer might work on a project through its full duration and in other cases on a shorter-term basis to help reduce risk at a critical time in the project.

What you'll do:

  • Join a multi-functional team (product, development, design) to help ensure quality throughout their processes.
  • Develop test strategies for new features in our product and work with other team members to ensure coverage across domains.
  • Manually test new features and develop the scripted/automated tests to test these features long term.
  • Follow standard software testing processes, while trying to think creatively about how to test our products as efficiently as possible.

What you need:

  • Experience in testing mobile applications, embedded products or backend services.
  • Experience programming in Python, Java or a similar language.
  • Experience working with different automation tools including Appium.
  • Ability to understand and create test plans/cases from specifications or verbal communications.
  • An eye for detail and a passion for delivering software that provides a world-class experience to end-users.
  • A 'do what it takes' attitude towards getting things done within tight deadlines.

Further Information:

There is an opportunity for this role to be a combination of an individual contributor and people leader based on your past experience/career goals.
