QA Automation Engineer

Remote Worldwide or local in San Diego
< See all openings ClickUp is the fastest growing productivity app, growing to 200,000+ teams and a $1 billion 🦄 valuation in under 3 years. We are looking for an experienced QA Automation Lead who will focus on developing our future automation. At ClickUp, the team, process, and tools we use are critical to our success.

The perfect candidate shares our passion for excellence and approaches quality testing with a user-first mentality. Our quality engineering team is responsible for maintaining the unique, high standards at ClickUp.

In this role, you will build, execute, and test everything related to the automation framework. Improvisation and flexibility are essential in this role. We operate differently than most companies, and routine QA processes won't always work - bring your bag of tricks!

You should enjoy continuously exploring and challenging the platform as it grows. We release new builds at a rapid rate, so time management and self-prioritization are a must.

More specifically, the role includes creating test strategies, evaluating sprints for risks, creating and executing scripts, preventing regression possibilities, and identifying and investigating bugs. You should be able to do this in about one-third the time most competent people think possible.

We're scaling quickly, so we're recruiting teammates who share our core values, know how to get sh*t done, and add a lot to our extremely driven culture.
The Role:
  • - Responsible for architecting the automation framework that will host all of ClickUps's automated tests.
  • - Setup recurring runs on a daily CI/CD pipeline that will integrate with our setup.
  • - Work to develop both the API and UI automation frameworks for ClickUp.
  • - Have the ability to manually test the web, mobile, and desktop applications if needed (we wear lots of hats!).
  • - Monitor automation runs and provides insights into the metrics from the daily builds.
  • - Identify, document, triage, and validate bugs and bug reports.
  • - Bring new and modern ideas and tools to the playing field - While most people can set up a Selenium framework, we're looking for something that's lightning-fast, easy to maintain, and simple to ramp upon. What expertise can you showcase?
  • - Growth potential to lead a team of automation engineers if the framework is successful and leadership qualities are developed.
  • - Proven experience creating and maintaining automating frameworks from the ground up - it's not enough to just have experience writing scripts, we want to know that you architected it!
  • - Web Automation testing experience (3+ years of exp.).
  • - API Automation testing experience (2+ years of exp.).
  • - Leading teams of Automation Engineers is a plus.
  • - Extremely comfortable with working in a fast-paced Agile/SCRUM environment.
  • - Experience working with Project Management software is HIGHLY preferred (ex: ClickUp, Monday, Basecamp, Asana, etc.).
  • - Skilled at explaining technical problems and issues succinctly and clearly.
  • - Responsible, team-oriented, proactive with excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills.
  • - Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills.
  • - Proficient with git version control.
  • - Experience testing applications built on Angular is a plus.
  • - Ability to work out of our San Diego office is a plus.
