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.
