QA Automation Engineer

QA Automation Engineer - Somerville, MA

QA Engineers at Paint Nite are involved in every step of the development life-cycle. They collaborate with Product to ensure specs meet real-world use cases. QA works closely with developers to understand implemented changes and uncover forgotten side-effects. They use their hard-earned knowledge of the system to discover bugs and identify performance or security impact. They implement automation that makes testing faster and more reliable. QA Engineers assist with releases to production and review monitoring. In general, QA acts as an advocate for the consumer and a subject matter expert that spans departments.

In this role, you'll be the lead on our automation framework. You'll be responsible for expanding the framework and test suites, monitoring the test runs, and acting as a resource for other members of the QA team when creating test cases of their own. Automated tests are perfect for regression but you'll generally be doing manual testing on the first pass of a new feature, both for efficiency and to gain familiarity with the product.

Our website infrastructure is written in NodeJS with a GraphQL backend. You'll write both API-focused tests and UI tests that cover basic functionality, edge cases, and performance.

You will:

  • Play a key part in expanding our API and UI automated tests (currently written using Robot)
  • Collaborate with team members to create manual and automated test plans based on product requirements, user stories and acceptance criteria.
  • Continually improve upon and maintain the automation, and develop documentation for usability
  • Participate in Agile working practices such as daily standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews and retrospectives.
  • Be responsible for finding, tracking and prioritizing bugs while communicating with developers throughout their life-cycle.
  • Work closely with DevOps on release planning, test server maintenance and deployments and 3x weekly pushes to production.
  • Work in a fun, fast-paced start-up environment


You have:

  • 4+ years of experience in Quality Assurance
  • At least 2-3 years of test automation experience
  • Exceptional ability to leverage test automation tools such as Selenium/Webdriver, Robot, TestNG, Junit, Sauce Labs or similar tools
  • Experience with programming/scripting (JavaScript, Python, Java, or similar language)
  • Experience with bug-tracking software and Agile tools such as JIRA
  • Solid working knowledge of cross-browser testing of responsive, multi-tiered web applications and e-commerce platforms
  • Knowledge of how to use browser dev and debugging tools like Firebug
  • Familiarity with source code management tools such as GitHub or BitBucket
  • Experience with MySQL and database testing
  • Extreme attention to detail and a passion for user experience

Bonus points: 

  • Experience with container technologies such as Docker
  • Experience with Jenkins, TeamCity or similar build technologies
