Automation Test Engineer

PALO ALTO, CA, USA - ENGINEERING - FULL-TIME

With the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, more and more expert knowledge is required to use cutting edge AI techniques to solve real world problems. At Matroid, we’re building an intuitive product that allows anyone to train and deploy computer vision models without needing to know how to write a line of code. Founded by a Stanford Professor in 2016, Matroid has raised $13.5 million in funding, and the product has been successfully used in a range of security and media applications.


We’re looking for a talented test automation engineer to build out a testing framework for our computer vision services. You’ll operate with autonomy while working in an engineering culture that fosters employee empowerment. Along the way you will learn about cutting edge machine learning, and over time your role on the team with evolve with your growing interests and skill set.

You’ll be working onsite at our Palo Alto office, located near the Stanford campus and Caltrain.

What you’ll be doing

  • Develop automated tests for our product and services using tools like Mocha, Selenium, Jest, and TestCafe
  • Identify new technologies and best practices for our growing engineering team
  • Improve our continuous delivery pipeline, ensuring that we can frequent, robust releases
  • Raise the bar for our product, catching bugs before they get to end users
  • Improve site performance on both the client and server sides
  • Create stress tests to ensure that our platform features work at an ever growing scale

 

How you’ll be doing it

  • You’ll be part of a world-class, multidisciplinary engineering team, where each member identifies and prioritizes valuable and interesting new features to work on.
  • You will operate in a collaborative but highly autonomous environment that isn’t bogged down by unnecessary meetings or project management.
  • You will know that almost everything you build affects real world users, and you will set the quality standards for your work appropriately.
  • You will think creatively and your suggestions about new features and ideas we’ll be considered by other members of the team.
  • You’ll be working with modern Javascript and Python testing frameworks and infrastructure.
  • You will learn a lot along the way, diving into new technologies and the world of computer vision both on your own and during frequent company tech talks.

 

What you’ll bring to the table

  • You have experience testing large scale software products.
  • You are a self starter who can prioritize what to work on and build out a robust testing pipeline.
  • You have the creativity to always think of new ways to break things. You won’t settle until until we’ve covered as many corner cases as possible.
  • You’re comfortable writing a variety of tests: during a given week you might go from writing unit tests for a backend service to end-to-end functional browser tests.
  • You can show that you’re smart, analytical, and a fast learner. Sometimes you’ll work on things using unfamiliar languages or technologies, but you know you can handle that.
  • There aren’t any strict requirements for your background, but you’re technical. Maybe you have a CS (or similar) degree, or you’re a bootcamp grad with a STEM background and strong portfolio, or you might be self taught with a few years of industry experience.

 

What we offer in return

  • Competitive pay and equity
  • The chance to constantly work on stimulating intellectual challenges.
  • Gym membership reimbursement
  • Free, lunch, snacks, and caffeine every day
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • A flexible schedule that leaves time for all of your other interests
  • A budget for whatever hardware will make you most effective
  • Budget and resources to learn about the cutting edge of software engineering and computer vision
