Software Test Engineer

Apply Online

We've built a team of not just the best engineers, but some really awesome humans as well. This team builds cloud software (platform + apps + ecosystem) to accelerate the flow of government data into the hands of public servants, citizens, developers, businesses and researchers. This means a few things:

We are looking for an innovative and results-oriented Software Test Engineer (STE). Our STEs test cutting edge applications and products at the user level both manually and (optionally) with automated tools. Our STEs are not just pure black box testers. They are able to understand software internals, debug problems using log files, and, depending on experience or interest, may write automated tests with scripting tools and/or user-level automated tools. We tend towards the context-driven testing approach in our work.

Work with our transformative data solutions that help agencies address mission-critical outcomes. Our cloud-based data platform, open data solutions, and performance management solutions help agencies improve performance, transparency, and public engagement.

  • Create test plans and test matrices based off business and functional requirements
  • Perform manual test case execution
  • Organize cross team “bug bashes”
  • Create, manage and triage defects
  • Understand backend infrastructure and design
  • Troubleshoot issues experienced during testing
  • Provide daily and weekly status reporting
  • Comprehend and understand testing requirements
  • Ensure strong attention to detail and be able to accomplish a wide variety of tasks
  • Follow written and verbal instructions from client and leads
  • Understand and use JIRA for test case management, creation and execution
  • Archive all test documentation as directed


What you bring to this position:

  • BE in Computer Science or equivalent combination of experience in a technical role of minimum 1 year, ideally with demonstrated QA experience in an STE or QA Engineer role
  • Excitement, not just willingness, to get out of our seat and talk to developers to gather requirements, understand systems, and scope the bugs you find – essentially the drive to “unblock” yourself and always ask for help when needed.
  • Expertise in test methodologies and test processes
  • Ability to understand technical specifications and generate test cases from them
  • Comfort communicating cross-functionally and across management levels in formal and informal settings
  • Comfort working in an often ambiguous area
  • Strong organizational skills, ability to track multiple test executions simultaneously and synthesize the results

Even more awesome would be:

  • Experience automating test cases (if you don't have this, don't worry. We can teach you)
