Automation QA Engineer / SDET

Website AltinityDB Altinity, Inc.

The Real-Time Data Company

Altinity is looking for a great Automation QA Engineer to work on ClickHouse, the hottest analytic database on the planet. ClickHouse now has more contributors than ElasticSearch, previously the biggest analytic project on GitHub. We’re looking to hire even more. Altinity is a distributed company that values employees, open-source, and doing the right things for customers.

Automation QA Engineer will be helping us deliver high-quality analytic data services across all environments. Along with other testing professionals, you will be testing features in the ClickHouse server as well as cloud and Kubernetes services that operate ClickHouse. We verify SQL, REST, native client APIs, and operating system-level interfaces in the stack. Much of our software is open source and our tests make heavy use of open source software and development techniques.  Your test code may be publicly visible, so it has to be great.

Here is how to tell if you fit. You have unmatched motivation and are fascinated by software quality. You are an outstanding coder. You know or want to learn how to develop and run tests at every level of the stack. You can communicate and work well with a remote team.

Candidates need to meet the following qualifications:

  • 3+ years of hands-on testing experience in DBMS, cloud services, storage, or operating systems
  • Excellent knowledge of Python, C++ and bash scripting
  • Excellent coding skills and ability to write clean, efficient test code
  • Expert at designing enterprise-level functional tests for cloud services, client libraries, or service APIs
  • Experienced in using modern CI/CD systems like Gitlab
  • Tenacious at figuring out ways to break software and systematic in documenting bugs
  • Excellent discipline to follow test processes
  • Capable of working independently with minimal supervision

This is a full-time position and includes equity in the company. Altinity is venture-funded and financially stable. We are 100% remote. You may work anywhere you have work permits, though we prefer candidates from North America. Check out our many other benefits including flexible work hours, career development, and open vacation policies.
