Software Test Engineer, Internal Tools

About you:

You are someone who has a breadth of testing experience across different platforms and products.  You’re passionate about quality software and love working directly with developers to understand how their software works and to achieve your team's goals.  You are naturally curious and always asking questions like “why does it work this way?” or “what happens if I do this?”. You’re also extremely organized and someone who can be counted on to go that extra mile when a project needs it.  

What you'll do:

  • Take the lead on testing internally-developed tools that are used in manufacturing and/or product calibration.
  • Work directly with a software development team to test and debug the internal tooling they are creating.
  • Develop test plans and test cases for the software you are testing.
  • Plan end of sprint regression testing and implement a release process for deployment of updates and new features to other groups at Thalmic.
  • As the project develops you will need to define where we can automate the testing.  
  • Follow standard software testing processes, while trying to think creatively about how to test our products as efficiently as possible.

What you need:

  • At least 5 years of previous testing experience for custom software tools and applications.
  • A “can do” attitude when working with others to be as effective as possible.
  • Strong scripting skills in a common language across multi-platform environments.
  • Experience in testing some of the following areas: motor control, manufacturing automation, image processing, custom hardware, or calibration systems.
  • Experience working with automation frameworks, VCS (such as git) and continuous integration systems.

Bonus points for:

  • Previous experience building automation rigs including custom hardware/software.
  • Experience writing unit tests using the Google test framework.
  • Experience coding in C++ and working with the QT framework.
