Do you see yourself as a individual who loves to understand a
business and then build technology to support that vision? Do you
regularly think of how you can improve existing tools and technology for
testing? The Test Team at Yodle is responsible for understanding the
vision of the business and then creating test systems and using them to
deliver that vision. This means developing systems that behave like end
users, are thorough like testers, and interface like developers.
Engineers leverage a number of technologies at Yodle, which include
Java, Selenium, Groovy, and the Play Framework.
You will be rewarded by developing your business acumen, your development and design chops, and your leadership skills.
yourself to understanding the business and services we provide. Learning
is done by getting up and speaking with your users, talking with our
product managers, and doing some research of your own. Yodle employees
wear out the treads on our shoes twice as fast as normal worker because
we believe passive forms of communication (emails, voicemails) are
detrimental to our success.
consistent and sound test strategy. At Yodle, we strive to find the
balance between "going with your gut" and "analysis paralysis".
Engineers are responsible for envisioning the work from beginning to end
and then executing on the plan. Work will present challenges in the
areas of web applications, backend services, mobile devices, and many
working in a tightly integrated engineering team. At Yodle, QA Engineers
work side by side with product developers, product managers, and UI
designers. If you are the type of person who asks to be included in up
front decisions, but then feels overwhelmed, Yodle is not a good fit.
You will be asked to think critically about your own work and about
everyone else's work - regardless of their department. Quality is
everyone's responsibility, but you are its champion - both in practice
and by example.
