Roku is changing how the world watches TV
Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., and we've set our sights on powering every television in the world. Roku pioneered streaming to the TV. Our mission is to be the TV streaming platform that connects the entire TV ecosystem. We connect consumers to the content they love, enable content publishers to build and monetize large audiences, and provide advertisers unique capabilities to engage consumers.
From your first day at Roku, you'll make a valuable - and valued - contribution. We're a fast-growing public company where no one is a bystander. We offer you the opportunity to delight millions of TV streamers around the world, while gaining meaningful experience across a variety of disciplines.About The Role
With so many people using our products globally, we've become well-known for products that "just work" right out of the box and integrate almost by magic. That doesn't happen by accident, which is why we are committed to making sure our products aren't just intuitive, they're obvious. To support that commitment, the Roku OS Automation Team focuses on testing all products and features for the industry's most reliable streaming media platform. Our goal is to help people find what they want and make it easier for people to stream. We accomplish this using state of the art technology and engineering to make it happen, with consideration for the customer as the center of all that we do.
We are seeking an experienced and versatile Software Development Engineer in Test to focus on automation infrastructure and test automation for the Roku OS. You will be responsible for developing a broad spectrum of technologies which includes tests for existing and new projects, libraries, tools, and end-to-end infrastructure. You should be able to represent automation and QA concerns in meetings with cross-functional, project team members and provide valuable end-user feedback to improve the customer experience. This position requires a solid understanding of software development life-cycle experience with a variety of testing techniques, strong debugging, written and organizational skills, and automation experience.
You will be joining a talented, high performance team with a history of delivery. We are looking for someone who can help us keep up this pace and continue delivering high quality as we grow.
What you'll be doing
- Collaborate with Manual QA, UI/UX, and development throughout the software development life cycle
- Convert manual test cases into reliable, repeatable automated tests
- Debug failing tests to improve product and automated test quality
- Promote coding conventions and standards for code re-usability and cleanliness
- Conduct code reviews for improved code quality and optimization
We're excited if you have
- 5+ years of hands-on experience with automation systems and unit testing
- 2+ years of programming experience, preferably with Python
- 2+ years of experience developing test plans and test cases
- Expert level debugging skills
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Experience working with remote teams
- Ability to learn new technologies quickly
- A self-directed professional able to work independently
Our unique culture
Roku is a great place for people who want to work in a fast-paced environment where everyone is focused on the company's success rather than their own. We try to surround ourselves with people who are great at their jobs, who are easy to work with, and who keep their egos in check. We appreciate a sense of humor. We believe a fewer number of very talented folks can do more for less cost than a larger number of less talented teams. We're independent thinkers with big ideas who act boldly, move fast and accomplish extraordinary things through collaboration and trust. In short, at Roku you'll be part of a company that's changing how the world watches TV.
We have a unique culture that we are proud of. We think of ourselves primarily as problem-solvers, which itself is a two-part idea. We come up with the solution, but the solution isn't real until it is built and delivered to the customer. That penchant for action gives us a pragmatic approach to innovation, one that has served us well since 2002.
