We run a High-Performance Computing Platform (HPC) on AWS with many additional opensource technologies and middleware. All our systems run in the Cloud so we always think cloud first! Our team uses a mix of Linux and some Windows. We are trying to remove each and every barrier that would keep the product team from executing faster than our competitors and releasing a clean, quality product. This means supporting and testing our full stack in a public cloud environment along with distributed schedulers, logging solutions, metrics, storage archiving, and optimization of HPC application cost and performance.
We seek an experienced and self-motivated Software Quality Assurance Engineer with exemplary expertise in all aspects of QA Automation. Prospective candidates expected to join our team to help launch new products and test new features end-to-end for our cloud computing platform. As a SQA Engineer, you’ll play an important part in shaping our development and delivery process and will work collaboratively with our development team to facilitate successful releases of products and innovations to our customers. You will be involved from the very beginning of product engineering, working with a small but efficient team to assess risks, build test capabilities, and engineer better solutions. You will use your experiences to guide the team toward good engineering practices, bug prevention strategies, testability, and other quality concepts.
