About the Firmware Validation Team:
The Firmware Validation team plays a key role in the development of Starry’s technology.
Firmware Validation engineers are involved in the design of each new feature in our products. We participate in each sprint with Firmware, Product Delivery, and other engineering teams. We develop automated regression tests that run against nightly and milestone releases of our system software. Additionally, we leverage our expertise with the product to support engineering, manufacturing, and deployment.
You'll be developing reliable, modular, extensible automation software that interacts with Starry products at all levels, from testing individual features in test harnesses to validating full systems on the manufacturing line. We do not use off-the-shelf testing solutions, so strong software development skills are a must. In addition to high-quality coding, this role requires impeccable communication skills, translating high-level feature requirements to specific lines of code, and demonstrating their interrelation.
You should be familiar with Python and bash, and be comfortable with the Linux operating system. The ideal candidate will also have an understanding of basic networking concepts at layers 2, 3, and 4.
We've got you covered!
