Senior Software Engineer, Test at Signal

Signal is looking for a brainy, inventive and detail-obsessed Test Engineer. Our future Signalite lives and breathes automated testing (freeing us to do what we do best) and wants to make a huge impact on Signal’s products. 

As our Test Engineer, you will be part of a team dedicated to overall testing concerns for Signal. This includes but is not limited to our CI and automated testing infrastructure. You’ll work closely with our support, engineering, and product management teams to figure out how each engineering team should test their systems.


So, what would you be doing?

  • You’ll be using your testing expertise to promote better software design, and improve engineering practice, testability, accessibility and other advanced testing concepts across Signal products. This means you will:
  • Work with product and development on new features so that you understand testing requirements
  • Build and manage a continuous integration system that tests Signal products, ensuring they function together properly and data is persisted/delivered accurately
  • Focused testing on high-profile, business-critical applications that are embedded in our clients’ sites
  • Interrogate log files when there are issues to help identify the source of the problem
  • Create tools so developers can test their own code
  • Organize testing plans for general applications testing as well as for the targeted release of specific features
  • Collaborate. You'll be working with everyone—engineering team, product management, internal stakeholders, and senior management—to innovate and get stuff done
  • Participate in engineering guilds, Hack Weeks, Shark Weeks, demo days. Have fun and experience life at a growing tech company

  • Experience with testing RESTful Web Services
  • Expert with unit testing frameworks (NUnit, JUnit, xUnit, or similar)
  • Advanced experience with test automation tools (Selenium Webdriver, Appium, Espresso, MSTest, Coded UI, Cucumber, FitNesse, Testium)
  • Hands on experience with web technologies (HTML, JavaScript, AJAX, CSS, jQuery)
  • You should have knowledge of Object Oriented Programming, Web Service testing, Front-End UI automation and have built a Test Automation framework yourself. 
  • Experience with Kafka is a plus
  • Ability to write SQL queries as well as stored procedures and perform back-end testing
  • You are organized. You are able to meet and keep track of tight deadlines with lots of moving parts, yet still have presence of mind to have fun along the way
  • You know how to get things done. You possess a keen sense of urgency and the ability to prioritize problems, and analyze and resolve issues
  • Sense of curiosity and desire to always be learning

Outside the obviousness of the job, like all Signalites you fall in love with new ideas, can’t stop learning, and are a pretty nice person on top of all of it. You get that even the most fun kind of work is work, consider putting in the hours an obvious necessity, and easily deal with change. You think well beyond what’s asked of you, live and breathe the minutiae of the work.

What’s in it for you: 

You will work with others who value culture and treating one another like adults. To support this we offer a competitive salary/bonus with great benefits, like: unlimited PTO, 401k, laptop benefit, health/dental/vision, STD/LTD, snacks, parental leave, Hack Weeks, great colleagues.
