Senior SDET, Back End

DreamBox Learning - Bellevue, Washington or Remote - Full time

About the Role

If you’re passionate about quality, not just in applications but also in team practices and processes, then you’ve come to the right place! SDETs on our team partner closely with our development team to understand the architecture of our product and services. They are capable of understanding the code upon which an application is built, creating a test strategy for new code/features, use appropriate test techniques, and design and execute tests to help ensure high-quality experiences are delivered into production using a risk-based approach. In this role you will partner with developers, data analysts, curriculum designers and system architects to build personalized learning experiences that help every student succeed in math. The ideal candidate is someone who not only loves all aspects of testing – but knows how to make it actionable; who enjoys identifying roadblocks to efficiencies and replacing them with automation; has a driving curiosity to discover what works and why; and an unrelenting desire to improve results delivered by the team.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Work closely with developers as peers to understand the underlying architecture and code changes to create test strategies across different layers of the application
  • Create and maintain validation environments and infrastructure on AWS in a Mac OS X/Linux environment
  • Automate newly integrated features and develop toolsets to augment QA and Development testing
  • Extend existing automation framework to work with new services and write end-to-end automation for user scenarios
  • Perform continued evaluation of test cases for inclusion in regression suites
  • Communicate test status and needs accurately and effectively across teams
  • Firmly and passionately advocate for our customers

About You

  • 5+ years of testing and automation experience
  • Experience with large-scale cloud-based SOA systems and micro-service architectures
  • Experience testing REST APIs
  • Strong technical skills with experience in an object-oriented programming language (preferably Java)
  • We use AWS extensively, so experience with AWS technologies (RDS, Redis, Kinesis, S3) will help you hit the ground running
  • This is a highly collaborative role; must be able and willing to work closely with developers on design and review of each other’s work
  • Experience working in an Agile environment
  • Experience with data analysis and Machine Learning is a huge plus
  • Experience with open source automation tools is a plus

About Us: Right now, even though STEM skills are increasingly important, over 60% of students in Kindergarten through 8th grade are not proficient in math or literacy at their own grade-level. The pandemic has increased the opportunity gap for our most vulnerable students. As a society, we need to bring together our best, most creative minds to tackle this critical problem and ensure all kids are successful in math and school and have the tools they need to reach their potential. This includes developing the most innovative learning technology using advanced data science in a way that inspires students and empowers teachers. Come help us make a difference at DreamBox Learning.

We’re passionate about our mission to radically transform the way the world learns. Today, our Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform – with its rigorous curriculum and game-based environment – is helping 5 million kids and over 150,000 educators improve math achievement and build a love of math at the same time. In the wake of COVID-19, and the broad range of learning experiences: in-person, all virtual and hybrid models, we are uniquely positioned to bring our best-in-class adaptive learning platform to more students and provide Educators and Parents with insights into their student’s learning.

We offer a flexible, hybrid work solution once it is safe to go back into the office. We are all 100% remote at this time.

At DreamBox, we believe diversity is an essential strength. That’s why we’re committed to providing an inclusive culture, an equitable work environment, and creating the most effective educational products that celebrate the diversity in students, families, communities, and the world. We know that talent exists everywhere, but opportunity does not. Therefore, we are a proud equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, but we don’t make these commitments simply because they’re required by law. We hold ourselves to a higher standard and make these commitments so that everyone at DreamBox can bring their full selves to our important mission. Our identities matter, and in order to create a more just, equitable world, we know it begins with DreamBox being an inclusive workplace that serves as a model for that change.
