Velocity is a growing startup, for developers - by developers. By using Velocity, local changes made by the developer are being reflected on the remote existing Kubernetes environments, allowing a faster development and debugging experience without complex configurations. All this is done with an exceptional developer experience and ease of use.

We are looking for an experienced Automation Engineer to join our team.

As a Senior Automation Engineer and as the first one in Velocity, you'll be at the heart of our R&D department, working closely with engineers, customer success and product managers to define and develop tests for our solution.

What you will do:

  • Take the initiative in version testing and pre-release processes, ensuring our products meet rigorous quality standards
  • Design and execute end-to-end tests for new features and existing functionalities using Playwright and TypeScript, Remote Robot and Kotlin and from time to time, manually.
  • Lead the development and optimization of our automation infrastructure, improving efficiency and effectiveness
  • Manage the feature-bug fixing process, maintaining a tight bug lifecycle from detection to resolution
  • Dive into customer issues, collaborating with the support team to resolve complex technical problems

What you will bring with you:

  • At least 4 years of experience in software quality assurance, with a proven track record in automation engineering
  • Expertise in Playwright and TypeScript is a must-have
  • A strong background in developing and managing testing infrastructure
  • Experience in startup environments, demonstrating a "can-do" attitude, strong ownership, and responsibility
  • Excellent collaboration skills, with the ability to work closely with engineers and product managers

Nice to have but not a must:

  • A good understanding of QA methodologies
  • Familiarity with Intellij’s Remote Robot framework (not to be confused with Python’s Robot framework)
  • Experience with Kotlin or GO
  • Knowledge of Kubernetes, Docker, and AWS is a plus
  • Proficiency in code management tools (e.g., Git, GitHub) and continuous integration systems (e.g., Jenkins)
  • A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience is preferred but not required
