Backend Quality Engineer

San Francisco
At Blend, we’re dedicated to improving lending. We’re an enterprise technology company, but our product affects the most significant purchase most people will make in their lifetime—their home. For homebuyers, our product means a clear, guided path to a new home. For lenders, it means modern, easy-to-use tools that let employees spend their time helping customers, rather than on repetitive, manual tasks. By aligning and modernizing this archaic industry, we believe everybody wins.

As a backend quality engineer you will participate throughout the product development life cycle. Owning complete functional areas, you will define test approaches and strategies covering overall end-to-end quality scenarios as well as functional, performance and scale-out testing of our backend components.

You will collaborate closely with PM, QA, Engineering, and Customer Support teams on core Blend features. You will be responsible for developing and executing tests and test plans for our backend components, testing the performance of the Blend platform at scale, and building representative test datasets.
