Test Developer (Embedded)

We’re ecobee. Born and raised in Canada, we're making living more comfortable with simply designed smart home devices that aren’t just smart for our users—but for our planet too. We invented the world’s first smart Wi-Fi enabled thermostat and continue to innovate the next generation in technology that is connecting the home. Our hive, headquartered in Toronto, is growing quickly and we are specifically looking for an Embedded Test Developer for our fantastic QA team.

Do you enjoy evaluating and learning about the product and growing with it? Do you live and breathe quality and understand what it means? Are you able to spot issues before they become problems? Can you automate tests and know your way around it?  Are you the next Test Developer we are looking for? 

Some of the cool stuff you’ll be working on: 

As an Embedded Test Developer, you’ll work closely with the Product Stakeholders, Firmware Developers, Front and Backend Developers, and other Test Developers in a cross-functional agile environment.  You will have the opportunity to be exposed to and get your hands on a variety of tools, framework, and technologies.

You will advocate quality, verify and validate, analyze and lower risks, and automate tests to help build great products.   Your testing starts early in the cycle and your ideas and opinion matters from planning to deployment.

Whether you are enhancing our automation infrastructure, developing new test fixtures, or writing and executing unit, integration, and end-to-end tests for our latest features, there are always exciting things to work on!
