Fremont, CA
  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

IMPORTANT NOTE: USA remote work ONLY, due to security considerations. Work from our Fremont, CA, office is an option.

STRONG GOLANG IS REQUIRED. Python and Java are irrelevant to our program.

This is not a web-development or web-ui-related role.

CONTRACTOR MAY BE ABLE TO MOVE TO FULL TIME EMPLOYMENT WITH BENEFITS AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS OF PROVEN ABILITY AND INTEGRATION WITH OUR TEAM.

Cellpoint is looking for a software QA engineer to integrate with our development team and several third party platform partners and stakeholders to support our custom applications which control and collect data on a network of custom and OTS hardware. Your role will be focused to work on our team for a FAANG client, directed by our team lead developer. This team is growing and evolving so you will have growth opportunities if you also have software coding and engineering skills in the appropriate languages.

We need a QA Engineer who is not afraid of jumping head-first into a custom-built application hardware platform, understanding what has been built, and what needs completion. This role will include tasks which are ever-evolving and changing, as the hardware platform is never finished and continually adds new features and functionality driven by client needs.

Formal education is not required, but may be taken into consideration. Attitude and commitment are much more important than certifications in our selection process. We will be interested in viewing a public-facing Github / Gitlab etc. Be prepared to discuss any contributions you may have in your interview.

The day-to-day operations of the QA Engineer would include:

  • Collecting reports of system failures, reconciling these reports against known issues and limitation in the platform, and determining if a new issue or regression has occurred
  • Receiving reports of issues in development for new features not yet pushed to production and digging into the underlying issues to provide recommendations to the development team on what can be fixed or improved
  • Evaluating the existing build pipelines and existing unit tests and adding new unit tests as needed (continual work)
  • Performing aging and manual testing on a real-world application hardware system, simulating production environments and looking for new issues and edge cases.

Required Tech Knowledge

  • Linux (moderate-to-expert knowledge)
  • Golang (moderate knowledge)
  • Networking (moderate knowledge)
  • Android Development (moderate knowledge)
  • Google Cloud Platform (beginner knowledge)
  • Git (beginner knowledge)

Nice-To-Haves

  • Golang (expert knowledge)
  • SaltStack (beginner knowledge)
  • Google Cloud Platform (moderate knowledge)
  • Buganizer (moderate knowledge)
  • Wireguard (moderate knowledge)
  • Experience with Open Source Contributions

Attitude / Personality:

  • Independence and curiosity are important
  • Know how to research / google / stack-overflow things
  • Know how to read code to find what you’re looking for
  • Know how to read man pages and readmes
  • Know how to read error messages to find out what’s going wrong
  • Be able to follow the scientific method in your work (question => data => theory => designing a test/experiment => testing => interpreting results)

Communication skills

  • Need to be willing to listen to non-technical people try to describe technical issues without frustration, supporting with clarifying questions
  • Need to be able to report findings in an understandable way

Organization

  • Need to be well-organized to be able to track test cases and reconcile anecdotal reports vs. statistics from big-data reports

Benefits we can offer:

  • Flexible hours
  • Role won’t require fixed working hours, or much meeting attendance, 2-3 meetings a week 30 minutes each + collaborative working sessions via Google Meet
  • Role will require a fixed hour quota per month
  • Ability to work remote or in-office
  • Home/office requirements:
    • Be willing to have a simulated hardware environment set up and running 24/7 (possibly noisy)
  • Excellent medical, dental, vision, life insurance (Available only after hired to full time position)
  • Excellent SEP IRA retirement benefits (Available only after hired to full time position)
