Genesys is looking for a software engineer in test to work in our thriving Solihull office.  Come and work in a great atmosphere, for a world-leading software company, with an experienced agile team that are committed to continuous improvement.

A Software Engineer, Test is a dependable member of the Testing organization who contributes mostly to the efforts of a single development team.  SETs have proven their ability to work independently on simple features to assess the scope of testing, implement automated system-level tests, and maintain a CI pipeline by triaging and optimizing tests.  SETs assist Sr SETs with tasks to improve our testing frameworks and processes.

Candidates for this position can code effectively in at least one programming language and can quickly learn new techniques and languages.  While SETs primarily focus on the testing effort of a single team, they also have the drive to understand how their work integrates with other groups in order to provide value to our customers.  SETs use various tools to troubleshoot failing tests and issues with system stability and performance.

SETs understand the needs and processes of other departments including Development, Product Management, Sales, Support, and Professional Services.  Good SETs have a strong understanding of their development team’s processes, priorities, roadmap, and current feature work.

SETs develop into Sr SETs by proving their ability to assess risk and identify testing requirements for complex projects.  They advance by providing helpful feedback on code reviews, leading the charge to maintain an efficient testing pipeline, and by acquiring a strong understanding of how PureCloud services integrate.  Candidates for promotion beyond SET are those who show a strong understanding of testing philosophy and the ability to gain respect and lead others toward positive results.
