Job description

Like being around other entrepreneurial geeks? Want to play a pivotal role in the growth of one of Chicago’s hottest tech companies? Then we want to hear from you. We promise you the freedom and space you need to be creative, show off your skills, and grow your expertise.

For nearly 15 years, we’ve partnered with the biggest tech brands to get their ideas to market faster. We work with the latest enterprise technology and tools, prize collaboration in all that we do, and push the boundaries with every new project. Now, we’re the engineering horsepower behind a fast-growing healthtech company that helps millions of customers access affordable health insurance. The company has quickly become an industry leader, but its potential for positive impact is only beginning.

Our technology has and always will play a key role in our growth, and we are constantly modernizing our technological stack in a very thoughtful, business-driven way. Our engineers gain valuable exposure to the most advanced enterprise technologies, tools and processes, while working with emerging technologies like Spring boot for BE, React and Typescript for FE, Kotlin and Gauge for QA Automation, Docker for deployment, Terraform and AWS for scalable infrastructure. We’re committed to growing a team of well-rounded engineers, operating software in a production environment and building production-worthy software that delivers results and reliability to the entire organization. That’s where you come in.

As our Junior Developer in QA Automation, you will be responsible for automating executable specifications of our products and products of our US based mother company. We are targeting continuous delivery of new features and changes to our existing systems alike and developing well engineered tests and automation scripts are a key component of this endeavor. Success in this role will be achieved by architecting, creating and maintaining code that will power the executable specifications, and other related scripts in a web and mobile app based environment. You participate in daily stand-ups, collaborative specification ceremonies for new features and products that are on the table, and other occasional team ceremonies.

We’ll teach you to work with Gauge, an attractive cross-platform automation tool, and Kotlin programming language.

If you prefer to work with real life proven approaches (inspired by Specification by Example, Living Documentation) over cumbersome methodologies, then you are at the right place.

We expect you to:

• Take ownership of the specification automation development, and execution for implementations on a small to medium scale

• Assist in determining severity of any issues found and ability communicate said information to stakeholders

• Demo your work to your team members and the stakeholders of your feature
• Participate in specification and tech meetings with business & technology teams

• Determine the root cause of issues, resolve testing issues, and drive issues to closure

• Work as a strong, agile, diligent team player

Possibilities of development

We’ll address your career aspirations:

• This is an excellent opportunity for starting developers to broaden their skillset and sharpen their coding practices
• You’ll have several future career opportunities. You either decide to continue within QA Automation Engineering or move on to Software development. We’ll give you the tools, trainings and freedom to design your own career path
