Developer In Test at BuildDirect
Vancouver City, British Columbia, CA
As a member of our Technology team at BuildDirect, you work with a multi-disciplinary group of bright and motivated people. You and your team operate autonomously to solve real customer problems with smart and innovative solutions, end to end. You own your product architecture, implementation, deployment and operations. You are empowered and accountable for its full life cycle. You measure success and its impact with data collected from our platform. You will use modern software engineering approaches like micro services, cloud deployment and auto scaling, continuous and iterative software delivery, and data driven decision making.

We are as equally obsessed with hiring great colleagues as with building great software.

As a Developer In Test you will assume ownership of the process to ensure quality products are delivered and aid us in our efforts to continually automate our testing. You realize that quality is not a “nice-to-have” but an absolute must in terms of delivering quality products. You work with developers as partners and not as adversaries. You will assist the QA team in building out a QA agile tool stack with the aim of implementing continuous integration and delivery test capabilities throughout the organization.
