Job description
Reporting to the Director of Engineering, this is a hands-on leadership position. It is expected you will take the lead in test automation design and not be afraid to get your hands dirty with scripts and config files as we move toward an increasingly automated test environment for our leading-edge open-source language distros. The language distributions we ship come with large test suites, and our tests are partially integrated into the build process, but as we move toward continuous integration and always-releasable software we need a fully automated QA system to replace our current semi-automated practices.
