Job Description

Responsibilities:

At Pluto TV, we approach testing differently -- we are testing, and breaking, code constantly, but we help rebuild it better. Software Test Engineers (STE) design Pluto TV's testing infrastructure and write code to examine and validate large-scale software development and deployments. As an STE Manager, you partner with software engineering leadership to create and code tests concurrently with product development. We build tools that help developers be more productive, write better code and test it themselves. Troubleshooting is an understatement; it's more like trouble forecasting. The STE Manager will also act as a representative of the Software Test Engineering Team in scrum meetings and provide recommendations on how to provide better quality coverage for the applications supported.
• Work in an Agile Software Delivery methodology highly focused on creating data validation tests based on requirements.
• Provide a risk assessment on the defects identified and set the correct priority and severity.
• Provide a comprehensive assessment of data quality based upon the existing implementation vs new feature development.
• Develop testing and defect remediation process.
• Mentorship of Software Test Engineers in several key areas, including test automation, STE test automation standards, application behavior, and testing techniques.

Qualifications:
• 5+ years of hands-on experience developing Test automation scripts, specifically object-oriented frameworks (Selenium/Webdriver, TestNG, Java).
• 5+ years' experience in testing API System at scale.
• 3+ years managing on-site or offshore teams.
• 2+ years of working with different video streaming technologies such as HLS and MPEG-DASH.
• 4+ years of project management experience.

Additional Qualifications
• Good working knowledge on NoSQL Databases (MongoDB, etc).
• Experience working in an AWS environment.
• Performance testing experience supporting high-scale back-end systems.
• Familiarity with transcoding technologies.
• Functional Testing on Native Apps, OTT (Over-the-top), web platforms, a BIG plus.
• Agile Software Development methodology experience.
• Exposure to Agile Management tools such as Jira.

Paramount is an equal opportunity employer (EOE) including disability/vet.
