Emberex is looking for a smart, talented, and experienced SDET to join our team in Eugene, OR.
 
We know you’re out there, but we haven’t met you yet. Or if we have met, you perhaps neglected to mention that you are an experienced and talented SDET who wants to join our team.
 
We do know there are a lot of great developers in the area; in fact, some of them already work here! But we’re looking for just one more. And not just anyone - one who wants to write code in our QA department and report to a guy named Dave.
 
You’ll be part of a team that creates and maintains the test framework, automated functional tests, and performance tests. You’ll use tools like Java, Selenium, Ruby, Watir, and Gatling. You’ll write real code, not just crappy scripts. You’ll work with our QA analyst, tier 2 tech support, and development teams to help make our products great and our customers happy.
 
If we like you, we’ll probably offer between $30 and $42/hr, depending on your experience and level of awesomeness.
 
This is a full time, in-house position. If you don’t live in the Eugene area, but you’re willing to relocate, we’ll consider a brief initial phone interview to help us decide if we want to meet you in person.
 
Please keep reading for additional clarification.



Definitions:
 
SDET: (S)oftware (D)evelopment (E)ngineer in (T)est - one who writes code, just like an application developer, but the code is used for automating QA for software applications.
 
Smart: Good at using your brain for stuff
 
Talented: Good at doing stuff
 
Experienced: Having done this kind of thing before (being an SDET, not reading job postings). We’re not listing a specific minimum number of years, but we are hoping to find a strong, senior-level candidate. We do recognize that a very talented yet more junior candidate might also be a great fit; however, this is not an entry-level position - you must be able to demonstrate a strong understanding of code and its use in a QA environment.
 
Emberex: A great place to work. We provide a fun office full of smart, creative people and sometimes a dog, competitive wages, a yearly bonus, excellent health, vision, and dental insurance, a matching 401k plan, disability insurance, paid time off, in-office massages, and more. We have ping pong, foosball, darts, a PS4, and we do our best to make time to enjoy them.



Conclusion:
 
If after reading this you’re interested in the job, please send us a cover letter and resume: info@emberex.com
 
* A note about cover letters: We’ve seen a lot of them. Many of them are rather weak. Try to make yours strong. This is our first chance to get to know you as a person, not a piece of paper (well... kinda like a piece of paper with personality). Tell us about yourself, relevant stuff that will make us want to talk to you, stuff that we won’t see in your education and job history.
 
* A note about resumes: We’ve seen a lot of them. We like to be able to quickly understand what’s included. Organization is important. Writing about yourself in the third person is weird.
