QA & Testing is often seen as an unexciting though necessary aspect of the software development process.

We’re here to change that.

Here at SpotQA we’re working hard to develop exciting new technologies, harnessing the power of machine learning and combining this with extensive domain expertise to enable testing to be performed fully autonomously. Something akin to self-driving cars of the testing world!

We know this is no easy feat, but nothing worth doing ever is. If you’re excited and inspired by the prospect of working with a team of highly educated, expert engineers from around the world to build ground-breaking, and dare we say game-changing, applications to make testing easier, more efficient and autonomous, then we’d like to talk with you.

At SpotQA you’ll have the freedom to make decisions quickly and execute them, to work collaboratively with colleagues in other countries, (advanced written and spoken English is a must), and you’ll be able to apply your experience and education (degree or equivalent) to help us develop a robust and scalable enterprise product to allow organisations to test their software faster and more effectively than ever possible before.

Here’s a glimpse of some of the projects you’ll work on and lead as a Machine Learning Engineer at SpotQA.

  • Helping us develop the first self-driving car technology for the testing world.
  • Building intelligent anomaly detection techniques
  • Automatic summarisation of large-scale test results
  • Automatic model inference
  • Improve our existing models and classifiers and help us research/develop new ones

Main requirements

Essential skills you’ll need:

  • Strong practical experience and theoretical background in machine learning.
  • Strong programming skills in at least one major programming language (e.g., Java, C++, Python)
  • Strong abilities to wrangle and clean data

  • Be comfortable reporting results to stakeholders and informing strategic decision-making

Bonus Points for:

  • A postgraduate degree (preferably PhD) in a relevant machine learning topic.
  • Polyglot: can program effectively in a wide range of programming languages and frameworks.
  • Experience with distributed systems (concurrency, consistency, partition tolerance)

Nice to have

We know that as engineers you’ll have a mix of different skills, technologies and experiences, so we’ve tried to keep our ‘wants’ to a minimum, and thought sharing details of our tech stack would be more interesting to you.
