IO Global, creator of Cardano, is searching for a Software Test Engineer (Automation) to join its node team.

Role overview

IO Global is searching for a Software Test Engineer (Automation) to join its node team. The Cardano Node is the core component of the Cardano ecosystem and the most technical component of the platform. It is supported by an innovative development approach based on formal methods, and by latest research in blockchain technology.

At IOG we do things that have never been done before, in ways that have not previously been attempted. We are looking for the very best people to help us to change the world. If you are a strong, self-driven problem solver, with a black belt in getting stuff done, we want to talk to you.

Your mission

As a Software Test Engineer (Automation) you are responsible for the design, planning, scripting, and execution of software testing across all releases to the Cardano platform. You will work closely with developers, project managers, network engineers, and other stakeholders throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC), executing test iterations, tracking and reporting results, troubleshooting, and coordinating defect resolution.

Duties will include:

  • Interacting with product¬†management,¬†project¬†management,¬†and¬†development¬†teams¬†to¬†develop¬†testing¬†objectives
  • Reviewing and analysing system¬†specifications
  • Designing¬†test¬†conditions and scripts to address business and technical use cases
  • Using existing tools and techniques to execute¬†test¬†cases and¬†building/scripting¬†new tools for carrying out¬†testing/validation
  • Executing¬†automation¬†tests¬†and analyzing the results
  • Troubleshooting and triaging issues with other¬†teams¬†to drive towards root cause¬†identification¬†and resolution
  • Documenting, tracking, and escalating issues
  • Supporting the¬†production¬†deployment¬†of¬†applications¬†and carrying out validation¬†testing¬†during off-hours maintenance
  • Helping technical¬†services¬†as an escalation point for reported¬†bugs.

Requirements

Your expertise

  • Degree in¬†computer¬†science, engineering, mathematics, logic, physics, or related subject
  • Minimum of five years‚Äô experience in¬†testing
  • Experience in¬†test¬†automation, setting up new frameworks, API¬†testing
  • Familiarity with an¬†agile¬†setup (scrum,¬†kanban)
  • Practical knowledge of software engineering best practices and¬†testing¬†methodologies,¬†ideally¬†ISTQB or ISEB certified
  • Expertise in libraries, tools, and procedures for the execution and¬†automation¬†of various types of¬†tests¬†(eg unit, property, integration, end-to-end, UI,¬†performance,¬†stress, fault tolerance)
  • Experience with virtualization (VMWare, Hyper-V),¬†git,¬†continuous¬†integration (CI), and¬†continuous¬†deployment¬†(CD)
  • Test¬†automation¬†skills (desktop, API,¬†web,¬†integration¬†tests)
  • Infrastructure¬†deployment¬†and¬†configuration¬†skills (dev/test¬†ops,¬†containerization).

Nice to have:

  • Coding/scripting experience (preferably¬†Python/PyTest)
  • Expertise in Linux/Unix, Bash, SQL (highly desirable)
  • Distributed¬†systems¬†development/testing¬†skills
  • Performance¬†and¬†security¬†testing¬†experience
  • Experience in¬†distributed¬†systems and network
  • Knowledge of a¬†functional¬†programming language such as¬†Haskell¬†(but¬†Python,¬†Java,¬†or¬†C# also considered)
  • Blockchain¬†development¬†experience (relevant technical experience also considered ‚Äď eg you‚Äôve worked in highly technical¬†environments¬†and have a proven ability to pick up new concepts and processes).
