About Bobsled

Our goal at Bobsled is to transform the way data is shared across organizations, clouds, and data platforms. Our cross-cloud platform enables enterprises to share data quickly and securely through one unified control plane that manages all aspects of data sharing, including replication, updates, versioning, entitlements, telemetry, and more. 

By solving these problems we will: 

  • Remove barriers to collaboration between organizations
  • Facilitate and democratize the use of data to enable better decision making

Bobsled is a Remote-only company where you'll work with people from all around the world! We believe that by using data collaboratively, we can enable better solutions to the world’s hardest problems. 

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) to support the operational excellence of Bobsled’s data sharing platform. You’ll apply your expertise to complex technical and business challenges and develop innovative solutions that meet requirements concerning functionality, performance, scalability, and reliability. You will be part of the team ensuring the quality of our platform, and your work will have an enormous impact on the way organizations use data across the world.

As an early hire, you will also play a pivotal role in building our team and culture, fostering a collaborative environment, and assessing engineering candidates.

Key Responsibilities

  • Be a creative thinker and problem solver and contribute to technical discussions to deliver on quality assurance responsibilities.
  • Design and build testing system based on integrations with storage services, data warehouses and other cloud tools using mainly Cypress as a UI tests driver to protect against regressions and new bugs.
  • Drive quality across all teams, providing guidance, feedback, and suggestions to improve quality practices across the engineering organization.
  • Work alongside the SRE team and use techniques such as logging and metrics as well as bespoke tools to ensure quality goals are met.
  • Be instrumental in the design and implementation of Bobsled's quality assurance process adhering to modern best practices.
  • Be aware of changes in quality assurance best practices and new technologies which Bobsled could adopt to drive product excellence. 

Preferred Qualifications

  • 5+ years experience as a senior SDET or similar role responsible for assuring quality.
  • Expected to work in JavaScript or TypeScript, but experience in other modern languages will be considered.
  • Expert knowledge of quality assurance principles and modern testing techniques at scale and tooling required to deliver on these.
  • Experience writing E2E test suites using frameworks such as Cypress/Puppeteer/Playwright.
  • Experience with testing APIs and implementing API automated testing.
  • Good knowledge of CI/CD principles.
  • Good knowledge of cloud infrastructure and databases. Serverless knowledge and data warehouse experience is a big plus, along with cloud monitoring and logging facilities.
  • Understanding of infrastructure as code (IaC) concepts.


  • Salary Range: $130-$160K
  • Highly competitive equity compensation


  • Health Insurance (for US employees): Medical (100% paid for Employee and Dependents), dental and vision benefits for you and your family
  • Generous PTO policy and paid parental leave
  • Fully upgraded Apple MacBook and 4K monitor (for engineering team only) 
  • Home office stipend of $1,000
  • Flexible work hours in fully-remote work environment
  • Fully-sponsored individual coaching for all employees to help foster a culture of personal reflection and growth (optional though encouraged)

We understand that no candidate is perfectly qualified for any job. Experience comes in different forms; many skills are transferable; and passion goes a long way. Even more important than your resume is a clear demonstration of skill, dedication, and the ability to thrive in a fluid and collaborative environment. We want you to learn new things in this role. We’re hiring at multiple levels of seniority, so we encourage you to apply if your experience is close to what we’re looking for.

We are committed to fostering and empowering an inclusive community within our organization. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, national origin, citizenship, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other characteristic protected by law.  #LI-Remote
