Senior QA Automation Engineer- Mobile

Title: Senior QA Automation Engineer- Mobile

Location: San Francisco, CA

Job Description:

Reddit is a community of communities. It’s built on shared interests, passion, and trust and is home to the most open and authentic conversations on the internet. Every day, Reddit users submit, vote, and comment on the topics they care most about. With 100,000+ active communities and approximately 73+ million daily active unique visitors, Reddit is one of the internet’s largest sources of information. For more information, visit redditinc.com.

The Reddit of today is built on top of communities (subreddits) where conversation happens daily about millions of different topics. There’s a gap for people who want to have casual conversations in a lively and immediate way due to the forum-like structure of Posts and Comments. The Chat team has the ambitious goal of making synchronous conversations a core part of the Reddit community experience. We believe that giving users a more casual way to communicate will unlock new ways for communities to grow.

We are looking for a Senior QA Engineer to help us keep our products at a high quality standard. In this role, you will work closely with software engineers, product managers, designers, and peer QA engineers to build and execute test strategy and plans across multiple platforms. You should be experienced in functional and automated testing, and comfortable with test frameworks for Android or iOS. You will be in a highly collaborative environment and should be a strong cross-functional communicator.

Responsibilities

On the team, you will:

  • Validate new features and new releases of our mobile products.
  • Write native automated tests for mobile apps and support existing automated tests.
  • Work with engineers and product managers to triage and prioritize issues.
  • Analyze production issues, identify test gaps across the entire testing stack and make systemic improvements to automated testing.
  • Partner with our Quality Engineering and Platforms teams to improve our automation frameworks.
  • Contribute meaningfully to team strategy. We give everyone a seat at the table and encourage active participation in planning for the future.
  • Communicate effectively, within the team and across disciplines. Work closely with engineers, product managers and designers to ensure a good user experience.

Required Qualifications

  • 5+ years of QA experience doing manual testing and working on tests automation
  • Experience in developing, executing, and monitoring automated test suites using XCTest/Swift or Espresso/Kotlin
  • Experience in unit, snapshot, and end-to-end testing of mobile applications
  • Experience building and shipping mobile applications is a plus.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit. On our team, everyone needs to act like a startup CEO. You must be self-directed, innovative, and biased towards action in fast-paced environments.
  • Excellent communication skills. You must be able to collaborate effectively with teams in a fully-remote environment, and discuss complex topics with technical and non-technical audiences.
