Quality Test Engineer III


Cirium is seeking a Quality Test Engineer for a newly formed team.  The successful candidate will develop and implement tests and testing solutions for various systems related to the processing, transformation, and presentation of flight data. This role requires someone who can take ownership of the test effort, possessing a strong balance of technical skills, testing capability, and curiosity. The candidate should be comfortable working on a cross-functional team in an iterative, participatory environment, and be confident in helping to fill in the gaps and ask questions about requirements and the intended behavior of products. A good mix of independence and a desire to work collaboratively is ideal for this role.


Responsibilities Include:

      Develop tests and testing solutions for an established complex architecture, typically at the code level (without established interfaces).

      Create and execute test cases as needed for different types of testing: regression, functional, build verification, etc.

      Be an active member of the development team:  contribute ideas and insight in standups and meetings, ask questions, advocate for the testing effort, and help colleagues.

      Use Trello to log, update, and track issues.



      Bachelor’s degree in a field that requires analytical and logical skills, OR equivalent experience.

      Minimum of three years’ testing experience AND two years’ experience writing code professionally, preferably beyond simply using off the shelf tools.

      An eye for increasing testability in applications.

      Experience testing web-delivered applications.

      Able to work productively with a Linux-based platform.

      Familiar with source control tools (e.g. Git, SVN) and branching strategies.



      Experience writing Java and/or Python.

      Familiar with typical issue-logging and project planning tools (e.g. JIRA, Pivotal Tracker).

      Basic experience with SQL.

      Understanding of REST, HTTP, and web services.
