Performance QE Job Requirement

You work with product and engineering teams to plan and develop performance test scripts for a specific set of products. Use and develop new tools to effectively test products and improve engineering processes. Maintain and evaluate performance tests results and report problems you discover.

You are excited about providing new tools to the QA team to make verification processes more efficient. You work with developers to make hard-to-test features more testable for QA. You understand the inner workings of technologies that you test. You know that it is the job of a Quality Assurance Engineer to speak up at any point in the process. You are someone with high standards who will push us to be better, and who will take pride in quality like we do.

You're someone who wants to see the impact of your work making a difference every day. You understand the role of a Quality Assurance and you are a strong advocate for quality -- you are motivated to consider the user experience of the site for various types of users, test the edge cases of products, and lobby for having problems you've encountered get fixed.

You collaborate across teams to define and execute testing solutions that meet business requirements and overall goals of efficiency, coverage, and usability. You lead the development and tailoring of automation frameworks required by multiple project streams within the program in support of unit, functional, system, regression, smoke, load and performance test initiatives. You analyze complex workflows and processes, and develop innovative approaches to streamline load testing; assess risk for determining appropriate levels of testing.

You design, develop and maintain high quality, reusable performance test suites; identify performance test scenarios based on the business volumes.
