Software Test Engineer, Kernel

About you:

You are an experienced test engineer with a passion for both hardware and software.  You have a good understanding of how operating systems work and a clear idea how you would go about testing one for a customized embedded device.  You think of yourself either as a QA engineer in a software developer’s body or as a software engineer in a QA body, but it doesn’t really matter to you as long as you’re working with cutting edge technologies.

What you'll do:

  • Be responsible for testing the firmware and software on a custom platform for our next generation computer wearables
  • Focus on areas such as power management, connectivity, charging and other relevant features
  • Build jigs and automated tests to allow us to test/validate design changes immediately
  • As the team grows, you’ll take the lead of a team of testers focused on one or more of our projects
  • You’ll follow standard software testing processes, but will try to think creatively about how to test our products as efficiently as possible

What you need:

  • 3+ years experience in testing OS level software or embedded hardware products
  • Ability to understand and create test plans/cases from specifications or verbal communications
  • Strong scripting skills in a common language
  • A 'do what it takes' attitude towards getting things done and meeting deadlines

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working with test automation frameworks testing embedded hardware
  • Programming skills in C++ and experience with the QT framework
  • Experience working with Android OS

Feel like you can’t tick all the boxes above? If you have some of the skills and experience that we’re looking for and are willing to use your talent to learn the rest, we encourage you to apply!
