Software Engineer in Test II

As a Software Engineer in Test at Workfront, you will work with your Engineering team and management to take ideas for Workfront and turn them into realized features. You will work in an Agile environment and estimate assigned work, provide task breakdowns and implement tests for features and micro-services which use Java, web technologies (PHP, JavaScript, React, HTML5), multiple frameworks (Drupal, Node, Spring, Docker, AWS), and data technologies (Amazon Aurora, MySQL, RDBMS, NoSQL).

As a Software Engineer in Test II, you will use your knowledge and experience to own the test coverage for the features assigned to your software engineering team. You will be expected to continually improve and optimize the coverage, by reviewing and improving existing tests, as well as implementing better approaches and methods in test automation. You will be expected to manage an appropriate mix of automated tests in both a programmatic and a UI interface, establishing a baseline of regression tests that will drive both functional validation and code coverage measurement.  You will be challenged daily to solve problems, expand your knowledge of the Workfront platform and the technologies that can be used to continuously improve it. You will grow as we do and your technical skills and ownership responsibilities will gradually increase as you move toward the next level.

A Typical Day in Your World:

  • Meet with your team and communicate the current state of testing activities and the quality of the application; provide updates about work you were able to complete yesterday and will complete today.
  • Work with your team to plan your sprint and take on tasks that will help your team succeed.
  • Review requirements and work with management to eliminate ambiguities and potential conflicts early in the process.
  • Review the feature implementation and suggest improvements for testability.
  • Implement test coverage for the features based on white-box code analysis and product requirements.
  • Review black-box test scenarios and secure an adequate coverage of those.
  • Review pull requests and test run results to ensure no existing functionality is broken by the changes introduced by your team’s work.
  • Communicate test results and status to the team and leadership.
  • Continually increase existing coverage based on root cause analysis of defects, coverage reports and other sources of information.
  • Work with Product Management and Quality Assurance to optimize team quality and balance between functional test coverage and user-facing scenario testing across different test layers.
  • Conduct usage analysis and prepare performance test scenarios for the functionality owned by your team.
  • Work with DevOps to suggest improvements in Continuous Integration cycle and act as the focal point in the team to adopt such improvements initiated elsewhere.
  • Have a fabulous lunch with people you respect and admire. Enjoy your coffee and drinks …or 10 because, hey, they are free!
  • At the end of a release, celebrate the fact that you and your team’s work is indeed awesome and unspeakably incredible, take some time to do some research, train in a new technology or even play a game – em, we mean participate in a team building exercise – with your team.
