Most senior test manager working across all of IoHK's solutions

Role overview

Description

As a Senior Software Engineering Manager in Test at IOG, you will lead the efforts to install best practices for automated testing across the entire organization and all projects, leading at least two teams of software engineers to create the best possible user experience.

While this role does have responsibilities of people management with high-level direction and planning, technical leadership will be a primary focus as the adoption of common tooling across the team and the wider organization is a necessity. You will operate as part of a leadership team that spans architecture, DevOps, formal methods, and delivery and will be responsible for the team’s productivity, success, happiness, and growth. You will be setting and overseeing the team’s goals and working cross-team to align and drive all objectives.

Your mission

  • Be a leader. You will set the team objectives and make sure that the team is clear on what the objectives are – and, more importantly, why
  • Be a mentor. You will work with engineers on their growth and development, making sure that everyone receives timely feedback and has a clear growth plan
  • Be a force multiplier. You will continuously remove blockers and obstacles, both internal and cross-team, so that everyone can do their best work
  • Define and refine software quality strategies and processes for the engineering teams
  • Be a catalyst to promote a ‘Quality First’ mindset throughout the cross-functional organization
  • Develop, implement, and manage processes to ensure that products meet required specifications for quality, function, and reliability before delivery
  • Drive adoption of best practices in code health, testing, testability, and maintainability (such as clean code and the test pyramid)
  • Recommend improvements into overall best practices, design, testability, quality, and productivity
  • Track test gaps, quality, and productivity metrics
  • Work with other engineering teams to improve gaps from this data
  • Identify and analyze issues, bugs, defects, and other problems, particularly when problems recur in multiple products; recommend and facilitate solutions to these issues
  • Drive improvements to test framework architecture and test coverage
  • Champion agile software development practices
  • Work with DevOps/DevX teams to drive testing infrastructure
  • Work with different development teams to improve the testability of our applications/deliverables
  • Work with product managers, delivery team, and tech leadership on common goals
  • Mentor and develop engineering staff in your areas of expertise, including developing and delivering training, undertaking knowledge-sharing activities, and supporting succession planning
  • Cultivate employee growth and serve as their advocate
  • Work with team members to ensure long-term career goals are being maintained and proactively led
  • Recruit and retain top talent
  • Ensure employee skills expand to meet changing business priorities and shifts in industry best-practices
  • Eliminate roadblocks that inhibit individual progress.

Requirements

Your expertise

  • The ideal candidate for this role should be able to lead and mentor senior software engineers
  • 5+ years in Software Development Engineering in Test
  • 3+ years in Team Management
  • 5+ years of practicing agile methodologies
  • Experience with modern testing frameworks
  • Ideally, you have been working as an SDET automation engineer previously and have experience with all areas of technical testing (Unit, Integration, Functional, E2E, Performance, Load, Security)
  • Experience in test automation for front-end/back-end and end-to-end systems
  • Experience working with Git, SDLC, and different CI/CD tools (GitHub Actions, Buildkite)
  • Strong passion for blockchain, DeFi, and the overall future of Web3 – it will be hard to be successful in this role if you don't understand what we are doing and why
  • Impeccable verbal and written communication
  • Exceptional leadership and track record of delivery
  • Open-minded and horizontal team management
  • Ability to define, negotiate, and execute on a roadmap
  • Ability to design highly effective processes and animate a team of experts
  • Highly autonomous and self-driven
  • Disciplined remote worker
  • Experience managing remote teams; our team is fully remote and highly distributed geographically, and so are our stakeholders.

Benefits

Location

IOG is a fully distributed organization and therefore this is a remote position. Due to team distribution we are ideally searching for someone in an European timezone.

  • Flexible schedule
  • Remote work - ability to work anywhere
  • Laptop reimbursement
  • New starter package to buy hardware essentials (headphones, monitor, etc)
