Lead QA Automation Engineer

Premium Job From Beacon Platform
Recruiter: Beacon Platform
Listed on: 22nd June
Location: New York, United States
Salary Notes: Competitive + Benefits
Type: Permanent
Start Date: ASAP

About Beacon Platform: Beacon was founded in 2014 by Kirat Singh and Mark Higgins, industry leaders in building and designing enterprise-scale trading, analytics, and risk management platforms. Beacon Platform enables financial institutions of all sizes to operationalize front-office development at enterprise scale on the cloud. The Platform consists of Beacon Front Office Suite for cross-asset management of trades, positions and risk, and Beacon Core, an integrated development and operating platform that enables quants and software engineers to collaboratively develop and continuously deploy business solutions. Beacon's open architecture and transparent source-code model empower clients to achieve their business goals while maintaining unparalleled ownership of the full technology stack. Beacon is a collaborative and innovative team with over 250 employees headquartered in New York, London, Berlin and Tokyo. Flexible working hours and location are supported.

We are looking for a Lead QA Automation Engineer to join our growing team. You will get to rethink how we do testing at Beacon - for ourselves and our clients alike. You know that comprehensive testing is not only essential for quality, but also have the vision how to make it an integrated force-multiplier for all of engineering and a delight to use.

You will get to work closely with our CI/CD systems and the engineers caring for them. You know who your customers are and see your domain as a service offering instead of a one-way gate.

You have experience in build systems, all forms of automated testing, available tooling and state-of-the-art frameworks. You also know where they fall short, and want to fix that. For you, usability and automation are not just buzzwords, but ideals to live by.

We are not looking for traditional testers or test authors: we want you to own the problem domain, build and maintain the foundation upon which all Beacon's testing can be layered on, and to build the team to make all this a truly engineering-friendly machine.

If you have seen the future and want to make it real in this day and age, we want to talk to you!

Key Responsabilties 

  • Build, own and improve the foundations of a comprehensive, automated testing framework
  • Improve integration between components, projects and teams
  • Partner with all of our engineering teams and provide them with the testing machinery they can rely on, as well as extend
  • Reduce manual labor and time spent in quality assurance, speed up testing cycles, and truly empower our engineers to ship better software faster, and more often

Your profile

  • 8+ years of hands-on experience working with automated testing, technical teams and software QA
  • Vision for what test automation of the future can and should look like
  • The drive to bring that vision to reality
  • Desire to redefine what CI/CD standards should look like
  • Team leadership experience
  • Experience with at least two different programming paradigms
  • A general dislike of toil
  • Ability to work in a creative, fast-paced environment
  • A degree in CS is preferable, but not strictly necessary

About Us: We are smart, curious people who want to work in an environment that respects all of our lives and interests. This means we all care about and respect the boundaries of work-life balance -- but when we work, we work hard and with great attention to detail.
