Lead QA Engineer

Automated Insights is the world leader in Natural Language Generation technology. We use that technology to make the world's data understandable. In 2016, our Wordsmith platform turned raw data into 1.5 billion written narratives for clients like Activision, Yahoo!, and the Associated Press.

Our Wordsmith software launched last year and has already grown to hundreds of customers and exceeded our revenue expectations. We're looking for a QA Engineering Lead who has a vision for how we can establish a mature testing and quality regime to help Wordsmith support the next thousand customers.

What you’ll do:

  • Turn our team's weekly, manual QA process into fully automated browser integration tests
  • Partner with developers to plan for maintainability and quality as they create new features
  • Put our software through the gauntlet, helping us understand the places where we've fallen short of our quality goals
  • Establish an integration testing strategy for managing the quality of our microservices architecture
  • Use load testing and capacity planning to help us understand how new features impact our scalability
  • Test the functionality of our customer-facing REST API

We're looking for people who:

  • Have 2+ years of work experience in a QA role, and 4+ in either development or QA
  • Have experience performing browser and integration testing for web applications, especially Ruby on Rails and Node-based applications.
  • Want to be a leader in establishing new processes for quality testing within our engineering team
  • Can put themselves in the mindset of a less technical user, empathizing with how they might use our software differently than the people building it would
