We are hiring our first QA Software Engineer who will lead the charge in crafting a reliable QA system that will support and adapt with our fast-growing Forem infrastructure. This person will work closely with our Lead SRE and must be comfortable making decisions and choosing tools that will form the foundation for our testing architecture. We are looking for a software engineer who is passionate about QA that can create a testing infrastructure that will give us confidence in our code whether we are deploying to 1 Forem or 100 Forems.

We value emotional intelligence and communication skills. We want to work with developers who want to build an inclusive software ecosystem as badly as we do.

Primary Responsibilities
  • Improve and expand our Rails application test suite (Rspec, Capybara, KnapsackPro)
  • Set up and integrate CI tools into our Rails application (BuildKite, KnapsackPro, some new tool you would recommend!)
  • Develop and implement a QA workflow with the team (i.e. smoke testing, regression testing procedures, etc.)
  • Establish a sustainable QA culture in the team. We believe testing and reliability are everyone’s responsibility, not just those in QA.

Skills we’d like to see
  • Experience with Rails, Ruby, RSpec, and Capybara
  • Feature integration testing with Ruby
  • CI Experience
  • Load Testing Experience
  • Experience writing code in production
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Motivated, self starter who enjoys working independently and can collaborate with other team members when needed
