Are you our new Embedded Software Test Engineer?

In Lysaker, near Oslo, you find Cisco Webex Devices R&D Center. We develop video conference solutions. Our products help people connect and collaborate all over the world, without actually moving people around. The only way to make people choose digital solutions over traveling, is to improve the technology. The technology has to be awesome enough to become a real alternative also in the most important meetings. 

We make both hardware and software and develop all parts of Webex Devices under the same roof - from idea to design, mechanics, industrial design, user experience, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Cisco Webex Devices are used by small businesses, universities, governments, international organizations, multinational corporations, powerful political leaders and even by Queen Elizabeth II.


We are looking for a creative and curious Embedded Software Test Engineer to join our QA team.

What you will do

We are a team of creative software engineers, trying to uncover where the weak points of our technology are, and how they can be addressed. You will be part of a team with a variety of tasks, ranging from early prototype testing to developing automated tests for various regression testing of released products. This includes participating in creating new solutions for test setups and contributing to the development of new video collaboration products.

In this role, you will:

  • be an important part of the product development process, testing functionality and giving feedback
  • participate in developing automated tests
  • be a key driver for the quality of our products
  • be responsible for qualitative, ad hoc and exploratory testing, configuring test setups, digging through logs, analyzing data and troubleshooting technical problems
  • work closely with colleagues from multiple disciplines to achieve our common goal of developing high quality video collaboration products

Who you are:

We highly value a curious mindset and a pragmatic approach to problem solving. As a person, you have an urge for continuous product and process improvement. You like to share your knowledge and are willing to learn and adapt. You are more than happy to ask questions and provide feedback both positive and negative constructively and have great interpersonal skills.

Python experience is essential as we use it widely in our test tools and test framework. It is also an advantage to have an interest in or knowledge of one or more of our embedded domains, such as video I/O, audio, Linux kernel, device drivers, signal processing, build systems, real-time programming, cameras, image processing, sensors or machine learning.

In addition, do you have:

  • a Bachelors or Masters degree in a relevant field?
  • experience from embedded software testing?
  • skills in writing test software and scripts?
  • creative problem-solving skills and excellent troubleshooting skills?
  • verbal and written communication skills in English?

 If this sounds like you, we are eager to hear from you!
