  • Invent new ways to enable remote, automated testing.
  • Help build the software counterpart to in-house designed testing hardware to help test device enablement (graphics, hotplug, bluetooth, etc).
  • Write functional and performance tests to support hardware enablement and to protect from regressions.
  • Participate in meetings involving international travel 2-3 times per year.

Required skills and experience

  • Knowledge of Python programming language.
  • Quality oriented, pragmatic approach to software design and implementation.
  • Interest in test automation methodologies.
  • Previous experience working with Ubuntu or other Linux distributions.
  • Ability to be productive in a globally distributed team.

  • Experience working in an agile environment.
  • Hardware testing experience, for example in the IoT space.
  • Familiarity with the C programming language.
