We're Celonis, the global leading Process Mining software company and one of the world's fastest-growing SaaS firms. We believe that every company can unlock its full execution capacity - and for that, we need you to join us as a Senior SDET ( Software Development Engineer in Test)

The Team:

As part of the SDET team, you’ll be involved in many chapter initiatives to develop tooling and continuously improve test automation practices that will help teams streamline their testing. 

Day-to-day you will be embedded into a product team where your efforts will have a noticeable and positive impact on quality release after release.

The Role:

As a Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) you have a cross-functional role with dual strengths in coding and testing. You will share a passion for high-quality software, strong engineering principles, and methodical problem-solving skills.

Your primary focus is designing, developing and maintaining scalable test automation frameworks and tools that standardise approaches and guide test automation design best practices to help peers effectively perform testing.

Within this role, you’ll champion and drive testing practices within product teams and implement an effective continuous test strategy to mitigate the risks of release and to facilitate teams in delivering quality software faster.

The work you’ll do:

  • Keeps test automation current by maintaining and improving the patterns, tooling and frameworks
  • Conduct planning collaboratively to identify what should and could be automated to ensure sufficient coverage while avoiding duplication of test effort across layers

  • Decouple development dependencies across teams using test doubles for external integrations supplemented with contract testing to enable teams to stay productive when an API they depend on doesn't exist or hasn't yet been completed
  • Strive for the fastest feedback possible. Scale test execution by designing tests that adhere to FIRST principles and by using tools and libraries that parallelise execution on multiple runners across different nodes, and/or in separate threads
  • Build quality gates into Continuous Delivery pipelines so that automated tests are run often and fail fast to provide earlier feedback on delivery risks
  • Write unit and integration tests that serve as examples of best practice
  • Use KPIs to help teams gauge progress towards and alignment with our goal of shift-left continuous testing

  • Has broad experience in tooling across various technology stacks from unit through E2E testing
