Do you feel that you are a hacker at heart? Or maybe, you are a software engineering generalist that likes to come up with creative solutions for a small team? We are looking for a Sr. Tools Engineer that likes to work independently, contribute to an existing process, and help come up with process improvement changes to help a 20-30+ person Engineering team.

We have a set of short-term challenges for you to solve, mid-term processes that could use an experienced eye to help discover process and tools improvements, and for the long-term, help simplify and maximize our tools for a scaling 50+ person Engineering team and a growing Business team.

Your tasks include to

  • build and maintain all tools for deployment, monitoring and operations for a growing startup,
  • research and implement testing frameworks for various levels of testing (unit, integration, fuzzy input, fault injection, SIL, HIL, ...) and helping with QA tasks when needed,
  • build, deploy, and maintain tools that improve the quality of code without burdening developers,
  • propose and automate workflows that improve quality,
  • scale existing solutions to support new use-cases.

Expected qualifications and characteristics are

  • 3+ years prior experience with Tools, DevOps, Testing, and / or QA,
  • excellent scripting skills (Python, Bash),
  • deep understanding of Linux systems (ie. cron, systemd, permissions, etc.),
  • strong software development skills,
  • good C++ skills a plus,
  • a drive to implement robust and reliable software,
  • a curiosity to learn new tools and processes,
  • strong work ethic and commitment to excellence and data-driven decision making,
  • comfortable working in a dynamic environment with incomplete information,
  • to create short term, mid-term, and long term tooling solutions,
  • a Bachelor’s degree or higher in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Math, Physics, or related fields,
  • ability to breakdown a problem, do research, and propose a holistic solution on your own,
  • a internal customer-focused mindset, to help the engineering succeed in their tasks, and
  • exceptional written and verbal communication skills (ie. asking the right questions to get to clear requirements, asking pertinent follow-up questions, and proposing your own solutions to internal stakeholders).

We offer

  • an open, friendly, collaborative, organized working environment, 
  • becoming part of an awesome and global team, 
  • flexible work hours, 
  • competitive salary depending on experience, 
  • stock options.

We look forward to your application consisting of

  • a resume outlining your skills, direct experience and how they apply to the tasks above,
  • two references you have worked for or with, as this will help complete your career application.
