Principal Engineer for QA

at Puppet, Inc. Remote, North America

Hi, I’m Diego Lapiduz, Sr. Director of Engineering at Puppet,

I’m seeking a Principal Engineer for QA to join our team in helping us build our QA practice. Shipping quality software is critical at Puppet and in this role, you will help us build the practices required to improve that quality and design the tools that can be used in that process.

At Puppet, we value innovation and allow for new ideas to incubate, as we look for new opportunities to better serve our customers.  We work in an agile, iterative fashion, breaking up large ideas into small, concrete chunks that can be implemented quickly to deliver value or further learning. We work collectively, allowing us to accomplish far more as a team than could be accomplished individually.

You will:

  • Architect and help execute the QA and QE program at Puppet.
  • Set up a test automation strategy working closely with all engineering teams to ensure their buy-in.
  • Hire, lead and mentor a team of QA engineers.
  • Create a review process for end-to-end customer scenarios.
  • Design a performance testing approach to prove the limits of our software.
  • Share knowledge with other developers at Puppet through pairing, code reviews, hack days, and company-wide demos.
  • Mentor peers through their professional development.

You are:

  • Passionate—with a love for solving user problems with software. 
  • A team player—who is collaborative and enjoys learning from and sharing knowledge with other developers in a team environment.
  • Curious—with a drive to learn and understand.

You have:

  • 5+ years working with test automation, testing strategies, and quality metrics.
  • Broad technical experience and up-to-date industry knowledge around QA best practices, integration of quality checks in the SDLC and QA automation.
  • 5+ years of experience with different languages, tools, and frameworks.
  • Implemented QA solutions in a language diverse environment.
  • Expertise in scaling processes where manual review is not sufficient.
  • Expertise in software testing methodologies including black-box, gray-box, and white-box techniques.
  • Interest in implementing security best practices.

We are hiring at various experience levels and we’re particularly interested in having a diverse team with a broad set of skills and viewpoints. If this seems like your dream job, but you’re not sure if you qualify, apply anyway!
