Rocketrip is hiring a

Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET)

New York, United States

When was the last time you really tried to save your company money when booking a trip? Like you, the vast majority of employees optimize for comfort and convenience, spending at the high end of their policy limits. So how can a company get its employees to care about expenses and save without implementing draconian policies?

The answer is Rocketrip. We're a NYC-based startup that rewards business travelers for cost-sensitive behavior. It's a win-win: companies save, while employees cash in with real rewards. 

The Role:

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer in Test who will play a crucial part in everything we do to improve quality, speed to delivery, and consistency of our platform. You'll be working with our engineers, product managers and technical support teams within an Agile development process to assess risk and help define the required process to build quality in for everything that we ship.

We strongly believe that the path to high-quality software is through an engineering-focused process that is supported by test engineering and quality assurance. As a team we have worked hard not to cultivate a "toss it over the wall" mentality of sharing work between engineering and test. Instead, we believe in a collaborative approach to defining the necessary steps to build quality into the engineering and release process.


  • Collaborate and mentor engineers to think quality-first when shipping software.
  • Perform exploratory, manual and automated testing activities as required within sprint release cycle.
  • Assess risk with engineering deliverables and define testing strategies to mitigate.
  • Define and own the test engineering stack and toolset.
  • Define and implement testing best practices.
  • Hold the entire team accountable for what touches both our internal users along with our customers.


  • Minimum of 3 years of relevant experience in software testing.
  • You understand what Agile, Lean and Continuous delivery are all about.
  • You are a critical thinker and frequently spot risks and problems no one else in the team thought about.
  • You are a great facilitator that can organize people to solve problems.
  • You have experience in implementing an automated testing strategy.
  • You are process-driven and believe in writing and maintaining  good documentation.
  • Startup, scrappy, roll-up-your-sleeves experience is a plus.

 Here at Rocketrip, we...

  • Are in high growth mode, and you will have the ability to make a huge impact.
  • Offer great benefits, including medical, dental, and optical.
  • Provide employees with a 401k plan.
  • Believe it's important to rejuvenate and offer a "take what you need" vacation policy.
  • Have a dog-friendly office.
  • Provide access to gym membership discounts.
  • Also give access to a range of other discounts including Citi Bike and Zipcar.


Founded in 2013 and headquartered in New York City, Rocketrip is aiming to revolutionize business travel by introducing the motivation to save. We're a group of tech innovators who looked at the current state of business travel, became frustrated by the antiquated employee and employer experiences, and decided to do something big about it. Our team is focused on utilizing technology, design and data to align employee and company interests.

Rocketrip is backed by a renowned set of investors and advisors, including Google Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, Genacast Ventures, and Y Combinator.
