At Deepfield, a Nokia owned company, our customers are the internet - from content providers to global network operators. There's no shortage of data in these environments; the challenge is to turn that data into actionable information for everything from strategic business decisions to automated network operation. The biggest players in the industry are turning to Deepfield for answers.

As a part of providing those answers (in a fast, iterative, agile way), we need to ensure that our software can do what we promise. This is where Test Engineering enters the scene. We are the glue between software development and released product. We embed into teams to:

• Be proactive instead of reactive
• Understand the goals and objectives of the work at hand
• Design and write tests to ensure the features work
• Dig into failures to provide valuable feedback
• Provide tools to our support team to verify customer deployments
• Most importantly, ensure our customers enjoy the product we are providing them

Job Duties
• Work within a team to help facilitate a BDD (Behavior Driven Development) approach to testing
• Write Behave feature files, step definitions, and supporting Python code for UI and API testing
• Use and design JMeter tests to verify the performance of the product
• Provide suggestions on how to improve our processes and tools to better integrate into the SDLC (software development lifecycle)
• Create Jenkins jobs and use results from builds to verify deployments
• Be a conduit to expose and address bugs before they make it to production deployments


Skill set requirements

• Identifying test cases and integration points between software
• Collaborating with teams to define success criteria
• Writing object oriented code used for testing, and interpret results of test runs
• Thriving in a fast-paced, quickly evolving, tech start-up environment
• Contributing to a collaborative, dynamic, and diverse team

Additional Assets
• A degree in Computer Science or other related field
• 2+ years of experience working with test frameworks for automation (behave, cucumber, rspec, selenium, nose, etc…)
• A history of programming in Python
• A passion for quality and test engineering

• The excitement of having immediate impact across a global customer base and some of the most important internet companies
• A group of people that actually enjoys hanging out together! We have frequent company events such as demos, tech talks, outings… oh, and did we mention food?
• The opportunity to apply state-of-the-art technologies to solve interesting and challenging problems
• Innovative teammates with diverse interests and hobbies
• A relaxed, flexible, and fun environment located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor stocked with plenty of snacks and sunlight
