ABOUT THE ROLE
10X Genomics is looking for engineers to provide the best possible experience to our customers. Software is an essential component to the 10X Solutions. We are looking for motivated and talented engineers to continue to raise the bar on software quality. Our team supports Linux HPC applications, electron desktop applications, web development, and advanced scientific instrument software and firmware. The team supports a wide array of disciplines. We need technical experts to drill down into the details of software, test automation and computational biology, as well as generalists who can bridge the various domains. No one individual is an expert in all of these areas - we’re building a diverse and collaborative team to meet the needs of our customers.
You will be responsible for designing and building automation infrastructure and tests to support 10X visualization product development. You will work closely with software engineers, computational biologists and computational biology QA to identify requirements and develop automation. You will develop new tools to automate tests, support development, and contribute to existing automation. Knowledge of biology is not required - an interest in learning new things is!
WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING
- Plan, design, develop, and support automation frameworks and utilities used for testing.
- Design tests to validate applications by creating automated scripts
- Analyze bug reports and highlight problems to help identify fixes for them
- Support and manage continuous integration systems.
- Collaborate with software engineers, computational biologists, and software test engineers to determine the requirements needed in creating these utilities.
- Report test issues and results in a consistent and timely manner.
- Support troubleshooting of test and customer issues.
TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS ROLE, YOU MUST HAVE
- 5+ years of experience with BS/MS in Computer Science, or equivalent
- Hands on programming experience in Python/Java & UNIX shell scripting
- Experience with the latest tools for Front-end Desktop application test automation (e.g. Selenium WebDriver, webdriver.io, Spectron) and REST API testing framework
- Experience working in an agile (scrum) software development team
- Experience in designing and developing validation, verification, and regression tests
- Good knowledge of version control systems like git is required
- Excellent knowledge of test case creation, bug reporting and testing protocols
NICE TO HAVE SKILLS
- Experience in developing automated tests for an Electron based desktop application
- Experience with Amazon Web Services is highly desirable
- Experience with issue tracking systems (Jira) and test-tracking systems (Testrail) is a plus
- Knowledge of Node.js and frameworks available for it
- Experience with Continuous Integration systems (Jenkins, Travis)
- Knowledge of bioinformatics applications and DNA sequencing is a plus, but not required
- Computational Biology or Data visualization experience is nice to have
