Arlington, United States

OnDeck is looking for a QA Automation Engineer for our team!  We’re building quality systems and automation in support some of the largest finance companies in the world.

What excites us at OnDeck? Technology. Innovation. Small businesses. We believe in our team members and power their growth through challenging them every day and offering inspiring careers. We’re all about teamwork, passion and making an impact. Oh and having fun – Whether it’s community service events, book club meetings, team get-togethers or weekly social hours in the office.

Through the OnDeck platform, millions of small businesses can obtain affordable loans. We are changing the way small businesses borrow money by combining our passion for Main Street with cutting-edge technology. We evaluate businesses based on their actual performance, not personal credit, and that’s enabled us to say “yes” more often and faster than traditional lenders.

Department description:

Technology at OnDeck is a mix of building cutting edge systems to provide a world-class user experience to our customers and partners, aggregate mountains of data to make real-time lending decisions, and of course move lots of money every day.  We have an emphasis on scalability, reliability and accuracy.

As a QA Automation Engineer at OnDeck, you will:

  • Work with a development team to ensure quality during the Agile development lifecycle: architecture, story definition, development, testing, and release.
  • Write test automation to cover critical integrations and end-to-end workflow – especially when we’re developing cool new things!
  • Create test tools and processes to tackle the hard problems and help us scale effectively.
  • Work with a team of dedicated engineers to improve and expand our online application & customer portal.

Necessary qualifications for success:

  • You are enthusiastic about improving software quality, find inspiration in cutting-edge technology, and enjoy working in a start-up environment.
  • You are proactive about learning our systems, ask a lot of questions, and tackling hard problems using new tools.
  • You have 3 – 5 years in a Quality Assurance role, preferably in an enterprise-focused or start-up environment, as well as recent experience with test automation.
  • You can demonstrate strong technical skills in your current position including:
    • Experience programing with Python, Java, or C#/C++
    • Relational database queries (Postgres a plus!)
    • Linux and shell scripting
  • You are familiar with end-to-end test automation or unit testing frameworks.  We’re looking for people with experience automating front (e.g. Selenium) and back end (e.g. data validity, REST APIs, jobs) systems, behavior-driven development frameworks (e.g. Cucumber or Robot Framework) or unit test frameworks (e.g. unittest, py.test), and CI (e.g. Jenkins).

Nice-to-haves (not required):

  • Deep knowledge and curiosity about technology and systems. Our applications run in virtualized servers or in the cloud, talk to each other through networks and load balancer, and save data in databases and CRM.  The more we know about the system, the better we can support our teams!
  • Knowledge of software engineering best-practices and passion to help your team find solutions.

What we offer you:

  • Medical, dental, vision, and life benefits from day one.
  • Paid/flexible sick-leave, vacations, and holidays so you can take off the time that you need when you need.
  • Up to four months paid parental leave for all new parents. Adoption assistance with reimbursement of up to $5K. We want you to have time to bond with your new bundle of joy.
  • We’ll match your 401(k) contributions and offer a discount through our Employee Stock Purchase Plan. All to complement your personal financial strategy.
  • We want to help advance your career. Take classes relevant to your job and the first $5K is on us.
  • Enjoy our annual company summer party, holiday party and department quarterly outings.
  • Semi-annual Hackathons to give our teams a fun way to innovate together and come up with awesome ideas.
  • Our partnership with SoFi gives you access to student loan refinancing, personal loans and even mortgages.
