Quality Engineer



Quality Assurance
New York, NY, USA
Posted on Tuesday, July 2, 2024

We're Celonis, the global leader in Process Mining technology and one of the world's fastest-growing SaaS firms. We believe there is a massive opportunity to unlock productivity by placing data and intelligence at the core of business processes - and for that, we need you to join us.

The Team:

As the Engineering & Product Excellence (EPE) chapter within Celonis, our focus is on the quality and stability of our software deliverables. We consistently strive to shift testing left so that we surface quality issues early and often. We prioritise integrating our toolsets and examining our processes to make sure we don’t have any more manual effort than necessary, that our documentation is sufficient but also lean, and that our work is repeatable. In addition, we work on new features to do the day to day work of applying test strategy, execution and automation. You’ll work with the team to ensure our products are clear, easy to use and demonstrate high quality.

The Role:

As a Quality Engineer (QE) you have a keen understanding of what it takes to deliver a high quality product. You will define the overall effort to ensure that innovations from our development team will be implemented in the right way in our software. At Celonis, the whole team owns quality - and with your experience you'll drive defining a collaborative test strategy. You'll work closely with Product to understand and advocate for the end user experience, and closely with Developers to ensure we are testing efficiently and avoiding duplication at each test level. You are not bothered by getting your hands dirty with manual testing, but are bothered by repetitive tasks and capable of coming up with creative solutions to avoid repetition. Hands-on experience means you understand the role of test automation, and can create scripts independently or pair with other members of our chapter on larger projects. You believe in doing the job well - but you also understand the balance between elegant solutions, time to market, and product quality so you focus on lean, clear approaches. Proud of the approach you've driven, you can provide clear data on the quality of the project to drive code deployment.

The work you’ll do:

  • Operate independently as part of a team delivering test services, working with project delivery teams to consistently advocate push left practices and drive customer satisfaction of our product offerings.
  • Own responsibility for one or more complex areas of testing.
  • Deliver robust, complete test coverage with minimal overlap.
  • Drive high quality test coverage in the team, ensuring definition of done includes minimal but sufficient automation and recognize the level of automation necessary to reach the goals.
  • Collaborate across the EPE Chapter, contributing to efforts to improve overall process and quality.
  • Live by data not opinions, ensuring your agile team consistently meets auditability goals and that your team KPIs reflect the truth of overall quality status.

The qualifications you need:

  • Exhibit an understanding of agile development processes and good quality engineering practice
  • Have experience with bug tracking and test repository software
  • Driven for customer satisfaction: improving user experience, paired with knowledge of general concepts of web design
  • Familiarity with backend/API data manipulation and testing
  • Understanding of data driven testing concepts
  • Habit of delivering low-maintenance test automation, experience in Cypress, Selenium, or Playwright is a plus
  • Great team spirit, curious, and a contagious passion for quality
