Job Description

We want you to help us take WordPress, Woo, Simplenote, Tumblr, and other native apps for Android and iOS to the next level. We want people to be able to blog and manage their site or shop wherever they are, taking advantage of the things that make our mobile devices our most important ones, such as media and notifications. We work closely with multi-functional product teams to improve the WordPress, Woo, Tumblr, and Simplenote experience on phones and tablets — both the apps and their underlying APIs and systems.

Let‘s talk about you. The Senior Mobile Quality Engineer position might be a good fit if you:

  • Deeply understand test methodologies, such as functional, integration, regression, globalization, localization, and performance testing.
  • Comfortable designing, developing, and maintaining reliable automated test suites that run as part of the project CI and/or nightly build system. Our test suites are primarily in Swift, Java, Kotlin, and JavaScript. Tumblr teams also use Appium/Selenium and Python.
  • Are familiar with mobile testing, both iOS and Android.
  • Are disciplined, with an eye for detail, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Triage efficiently, prioritizing issues by the highest impact and scope. You know how to get the right bugs fixed.
  • Are comfortable in a collaborative, agile, and distributed development environment.
  • Are unabashedly customer focused.
  • Are an evangelist for quality who is willing to spread proven methodologies and quality mindset to the rest of the engineering org. You are always looking for a better way to do things.
  • Can quickly assimilate whatever technologies are needed for a project.
  • Have the ability to objectively evaluate overall release quality and advise on go/no-go decisions.
  • Are highly collaborative, love participating in code reviews, and discussions about architecture or design.
  • Are open and able to travel 3-4 weeks per year to meet up with your teammates in person.

Extra credit:

  • WordPress programming experience.
  • Open source contributions or contributions to programs designed to help underrepresented people enter the tech field.
