Java-based QA Lead for an upcoming Blockchain trading company
November 6, 2019
Job Description for a Java based Quality Assurance Lead at a blockchain trading company
In this role you will be wholly responsible for the quality assurance of our exchange backend written in Java and hosted on AWS. The main interface is an API connected through a VPN.
Familiarity with FIX is a hard requirement for this role. Our backend is distributed with complex failover logic and application subnets, so network testing is an essential part of the role.
You're free to use any and all tools available including automation tools, regression testing, agencies, consultants, our own engineers, and of course your mouse and keyboard. We are looking for someone curious, paranoid, and skeptical about everything. Someone who looks to deeply understand both what the software actually does and what it's "supposed" to do, and break it however he or she sees fit. We are not looking for someone to blindly write and document test cases. This is a "no rules", creative, and hands-on job.
We're looking for -
8+ years as quality assurance engineer with a specialty in backend and infrastructure QA
5+ years as a quality assurance engineer in Financial Services
QA experience in FX, Equity, Derivatives & Futures, and Options
Experience with container management software including Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform
Experience testing networks and distributed systems
Experience in Performance/Load, Stress, Functional, Regression (of all kinds), Exploratory, Negative, Unit/Integration, Soak testing
Strong professional experience with tools like Cucumber, Postman, JMeter, etc.
Experience working and managing with QA specific agencies o E.g. deviQA, TestFort, TestingXperts, A1QA, etc
Experience writing regression tests and integrating with CI/CD
Identifying and maintaining documentation on system failures to understand the "edges" of the system
Highly skeptical about anything and everything
Experience developing your own testing tools is a major plus
