A brand new start-up team which aims to transform our clients news, blog, and information organization into a data-driven, audience-first, and adaptive player in the emerging media industry. The start-up is organized by functional teams of consumer experience, editorial experience, data science, and last but not least editorial. Our client’s content and product reaches millions of millennial consumers across the Internet and is a rich platform for innovation.

Our client is looking for a Lead QA Engineer for its new Consumer Experience Team. The mission of this new team is to build engaging front-end consumer experiences for a millennial audience by fostering a culture of product experimentation and human-centered design. Our aim is to design and build experiences that surprise and delight our target consumers across multiple platforms (responsive web, apps, and TV) to encourage consumers to click and read more of our content, share virally, and to come back frequently. Team members require expert skills in building experiences that blend responsive design, blogs/content creation, multi-platform/mobile-first, and non-text media like video/photos/interactives.

As the leader of our QA and testing team, you will be tasked with working closely with the product development team to drive the planning for and implementation of automated functional and unit testing of every aspect of the product — its user experiences, internal functionality, and APIs. You will lead efforts for researching, selecting, and even in cases creating developer tools and practices that allow these tests to be applied as part of a Continuous Integration workflow.

You will also help us organize any appropriate manual testing workflows for the product, including release QA, as well as smoke testing the production environment.
Naturally, you will know where and when to apply automated versus manual testing.

Their product team is small, agile, and organized into three groups that work intimately together: content production (writers, etc), the Editorial Experience team (focusing on workflows and tooling for content authoring), and the Data team (focusing on realtime analytics and data-driven decision making processes).

They are building a product that is deployed to a LAMP+ environment, which includes WordPress, along with a number of third-party libraries, whose dependencies are managed using Composer. The QA coverage must naturally include the PHP application logic, as well as the client-side markup and JavaScript that is ultimately delivered to our visitors. And our software stack is likely to get somewhat broader, as well, as we’re looking to improve our development workflow, analytics gathering, and notifications infrastructure to name a few.

The product also communicates with remote systems and external libraries maintained by other teams internally, and the greater software community, so appropriate testing measures should be made to account for rudimentary interactions with those “external” systems.

Notably, you’ll be stepping into a role that that has no “technical debt” with respect to decisions made about test automation, etc., so all the decisions will be made from a blank slate and explored together.

Responsibilities include:
● Define and evolve the testing infrastructure for our product.
● Build and maintain CI workflows (in Travis / Jenkins / etc).
● Create testing harnesses that can cover both WordPress and non-WordPress PHP code
● Collaborate with the other members of the engineering team to ensure overall software architecture lends itself to automated testing as the system evolves.
● Implement BDD solutions to provide ad sales, research, and other teams with a DSL that allows requirement stipulation to be handed over as a testable script.
● Provides documentation for services developed and modified.
● Coordinate the efforts of local and offshore manual QA resources.

Preferred Job skills:
● Proficiency with PHP unit testing (PHPUnit)
● Proficiency with JavaScript unit testing
● Proficiency with WebDriver scripts
● Proficiency with Continuous Integration (Travis, Jenkins, etc)
● Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
● Comfort and efficiency operating in a Linux/UNIX environment
● A solid knowledge of the fundamentals of how common Internet technologies work (HTTP, DNS, TCP, etc.)
● Familiarity with contemporary software engineering principles and tools.
● A creative and solution-oriented mentality

Bonus skills:
● Experience with unit and functional testing of Java software stack
● Familiarity with BDD (Behat, Cucumber, or equivalent)
● Familiarity with SauceLabs
● Understanding of Dependency Injection and the mocking of “services”
● git
● Grunt
● Composer
● WordPress
● Symfony Components

Basic Qualifications:
● A minimum of 7+ years of relevant work experience
