QA Engineer - Mobile Sensing And Connectivity

Cambridge Mobile Telematics Cambridge , MA 02142

Posted 1 week ago

Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT) is seeking a QA Engineer to test our Mobile Sensing and Connectivity software. In this role, you will translate requirements into testable hypotheses and find ways to test them. Through the process, you will become an expert in at least one aspect of our product and ensure that this piece functions well in service of the whole. You will also debug both technology and business processes, expose hidden assumptions and hidden risks, and develop solutions in order to deliver the best software possible. You will perform detailed experiments using CMT software and hardware, establishing expected behavior and exposing unexpected issues as a result. As part of a small team, your contributions will be important and visible, and you will gain significant exposure to exciting new developments in mobile sensing, IoT firmware, and large-scale analytics / machine learning.

A typical week could include: meeting with the Product team and developers to work out design details of planned Mobile SDK software changes, writing and executing detailed test steps on Android and iOS smart devices for a set of drive testing, running configuration scripts, logging bugs and experiment results, and analyzing logs to investigate the causes of unexpected behavior.

The ideal candidate will have experience performing exploratory or hypothesis-based testing and troubleshooting complex systems. The ideal candidate will also be curious, adaptable, and self-motivated.

You will be joining a small, dynamic team of outstanding software engineers, QA engineers, and product managers who are working to build software to help make drivers smarter and roads safer. Current members of the QA team have a wide variety of backgrounds, with degrees in biology, humanities, and physics. Your ability to figure out new technology and find bugs is more important than your major or your previous job titles. You will also have the opportunity to grow with this role, as our experimentation and simulation tools grow as well.

CMT pioneered the development of smartphone telematics services and big data analytics to offer a behavior-based program to automotive insurance companies and, more broadly, the connected car ecosystem. We are the market leader with key mobile telematics and big data expertise, yet we are always striving to learn more and innovate further. CMT was founded in 2010 but we are still small and maintain a startup culture often experimenting and nimbly adjusting to the needs of our customers and the market.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with our Product team to review requirements; provide timely and meaningful feedback
  • Work with our Mobile developers to review implementation details and documentation

  • Investigate unexpected test results or behavior by reviewing logs, running analysis scripts, querying databases, etc.
  • Perform exploratory testing and document results
  • Identify, record, document, and track bugs
  • Coordinate with teammates to share and document knowledge, and improve tools and processes

Requirements

  • BS or MS degree in a Science or Engineering subject, or equivalent experience in a technical role
  • 0-2 years of experience in a role that includes information collection, data analysis, and/or experimentation
  • Excellent analytical skills and attention to detail
  • Ability to take minimal direction and figure out the details (e.g., by reading documentation, experimenting with the software, or asking questions)
  • Ability and desire to perform mobile software and hardware testing that requires driving

Preferred Skills

  • Experience in developing or troubleshooting mobile apps on iOS and Android
  • Working knowledge of Python, or advanced skills in another scripting language
  • Admin-level skill in Linux
  • Proficiency with SQL
