Quality Assurance Engineer



Odyssey is looking for a talented Quality Assurance Engineer to join our growing team. This role is focused on working closely with Software Engineers to ensure we have great tooling, foresight, and quality built into theodysseyonline.com.

We believe QA should be an engineer’s best friend. We acknowledge our engineers are brilliant, but they admit they could use your help. You should be a cross-functional team member, adding value as the story is finished and often as the story is first discussed as a business requirement.

This position would be focused more on automated testing, although you would work with engineers and product coordinators on smoke and regression testing as well. We are interested in a great developer experience, including enhancing the abilities to create unit tests. Engineers will focus more on unit testing aspects, while this role would focus more on integration automation and continuous integration.

Our Stack

  • Front-end: React, Redux, Webpack, ES6
  • Back-end: Node, Express
  • Data-layer: Azure Blob Storage, Azure Table Storage, SQL Server, Cassandra, Redis
  • Infrastructure: Azure Resource Manager, Linux (Ubuntu), Docker Swarm
  • QA: Jest, Selenium WebDriver, Drone (CI)

What we expect of you

  • Strong knowledge of unit testing, preferably with Jest or Mocha/Chai.
  • Strong knowledge about integration testing, preferably with Selenium WebDriver.
  • Knowledge of JavaScript, preferably ES6.
  • Great attention to detail
  • Quick thinker and problem solver
  • Can implement elegant and robust solutions while adhering to coding standard
  • BS or MS in Computer Science

Bonus points if you...

  • Have worked in a cloud-based environment, such as Azure or AWS.
  • Have foundational knowledge of microservice architectures.
  • Are interested in helping to build quality earlier into the process.
