Quality Assurance Lead Engineer

At Continuum, you have an opportunity to change how data scientists and analysts use technology to make discoveries that solve the world's greatest challenges. You will be part of a growing company whose products connect the brightest minds with their data, while learning a great deal both from those you work with and the customers you support. Our team is innovative, passionate, fun and hardworking. We are looking someone who wants to work out of our awesome office in downtown Austin, Texas.

The Role:

The Quality Assurance (QA) Lead is responsible for ensuring the quality and robustness of our software, and also responsible for designing the processes that ensure that quality.  They will formalize test strategies, design and coordinate the build-out of our internal automated test infrastructure, drive our outsourced manual testing team (via that team’s project manager), and work extensively with the product team Dev Leads as well as the Product Managers.  The candidate must have great communication skills, an ability to coordinate and drive complex projects, and sharp problem-solving skills.  A familiarity with data analysis or data science software is a nice-to-have, but not a hard requirement.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Develop detailed test plans and real-world test scenarios based on high-level workflows from Product Management
  • Develop automated and manual test infrastructure, and support Ops/DevOps as they maintain it
  • Serve as primary point of contact for the engineering aspects of QA for the rest of the company, including Sales Engineering, Support, and Product Management.

Desired Background:

  • Creative and agile problem solver, with strong attention to detail, but able to “zoom out” and see the broader problem landscape
  • Good communicator, both in person and via email and chat.
  • Basic knowledge of software testing approaches and best practices
  • Experience with test automation tools and configuring them
  • Knowledge of data analysis & data science workflow patterns is not a pre-requisite, but a strong “nice to have” for this position.
