Job Description
As a Senior Performance QA Engineer, you will be a part of a highly talented engineering team and develop and execute performance test suites of large-scale, distributed software applications, systems and services. You will be part of the team that build platforms which will enable our vehicles to communicate to the cloud. The features you test and deploy will power driving experiences across the world.

We are looking for team members that are required to be creative in solving problems, excited to work in modern technology areas and be ready to wear multiple hats to get things done in a highly-energized, fast-paced, innovative and collaborative startup environment.

What you will do:
Build and maintain performance test templates for a large-scale system comprising of components developed in multiple programming paradigms (Java stack, Golang applications, Salesforce CRM, etc.)
Execute performance tests and provide test reports on Service Level Objectives (SLOs) managed by the platform
Translate the non-functional requirements into performance test scenarios
Collaborate with other business groups and external teams for end to end integration
Collaborate with DevOps to integrate the automated tests in the CI/CD pipelines
Develop tools and libraries that will enable rapid and scalable development in the future
Collaborate with Product Owners and developers to analyze root causes of performance issues and suggest potential solutions

You are a successful candidate if:
You are smart and can demonstrate it
You have 6+ years of experience developing and testing software
You have 2+ years of hands-on experience creating and maintaining performance test suites and associated infrastructure
You are fluent in one or more performance test solutions including BlazeMeter, JMeter, or Locust and have solved real-life problems using these
You have experience or are open to learning Python and/or Golang for test automation
You have experience in estimation, prioritization and planning/coordination of testing activities in a Scrum environment
You are excellent in setting up and using systems like Jira for tracking purposes and ensuring traceability among test cases, code and requirements
You practice empathy when dealing with the team and stakeholders
You are not afraid to spend time performing manual tests yet have the urge to automate those as efficiently as possible
You can manage ambiguity and are comfortable being set loose without a lot of direction. You can manage external dependencies from partners and suppliers
You are confident in expressing your point of view from a position of knowledge and experience. You are also receptive to feedback and open to revising your plans when appropriate
We think the knowledge acquired earning a degree Computer Science would be of great value in this position, but if you're smart and have the experience that backs up your abilities, for us, talent trumps degree every time

It would be nice if you had:

Experience in validation or delivery of connected car services is a plus
Proficiency in testing micro-services based architecture and testing on Azure or AWS cloud stack is a plus
