You will define, measure and publish metrics to measure product quality and champion quality improvements. You will understand business priorities and risks and help focus our quality efforts on where they matter the most. You will also help mentor other SDETs to help them grow technically.

  • You are not afraid to learn from mistakes and share them with the team

  • You approach conflict in a constructive manner and help to identify root causes of problems, offer corrective actions, and participate in the solutions

This job is not for you if...

  • If the pace of a fast-moving, growth phase startup makes you uncomfortable

  • If you prefer a strictly defined role where you come in, do X, Y, Z every single day and go home, to a role where your knowledge is the only limit to what you do

  • If you need a lot of well-established policies and procedures before you can make decisions and drive results, this might not be the best role for you
