Software Test Engineer, Connected Care Applications
Careers That Change Lives
Medtronic leads the health care industry to provide solutions that benefit the daily lives of people across the globe. Our organization contributes directly to this mission through our connected health systems, which include Web applications combined with scaled infrastructure and advanced analytics. Most recently our team delivered the Guardian Connect™ remote monitoring solution, which help diabetes patients manage their care from anywhere in the world - Just an example of the life-changing services we are chartered to build. Become part of our team and you will be challenged to build these amazing software products, and in the process, make a real difference. As a Software Test Engineer, you will develop test strategies and create manual and automated test cases to thoroughly verify complex health care applications and data systems. Our connected care system spans from medical devices that a patient wears, through mobile apps, up to our back-end servers – so this is a challenging task, and one that requires very critical thinking to ensure the system performs well, and the data is correct. We develop with some of the latest technologies across Web and Server platforms, paired with continuous build and test with tools like Jenkins. Our test engineering team is encouraged to drive new ways to improve automation, with the goal of highly scaled testing across numerous OS and environment variations. The best candidates will be ‘engineers’. That is, critical thinkers who solve problems efficiently, pragmatically and continually seek information from all sources. Strong relationship skills are a must, as is excellent verbal and written communication. This is a unique opportunity to apply your best technical innovation, problem solving and leadership skills to improving how people live their lives every day. Software Testing “IS” engineering, and it’s and is a hard, fun problem to solve. This role will be based out of the Medtronic Diabetes Corporate offices in Northridge, CA (Los Angeles).
