Complex distributed systems require infrastructure and tooling that enable robust testing approaches and exercises. You are a Test Infrastructure Engineer focused on building automation that runs tests and manages its infrastructure including the conception and creation of tools, scripts, and frameworks to enable the entire Engineering team to write tests efficiently and effectively themselves. In this role, you'll increase the quality and reduce the risk of releasing software through automation- enabling engineers to better understand system scalability, performance, and behavior at a deeper level.

Here's a brief look at what success looks like in this role:
*In 3 months time- you'll have earned the trust of the team, taken on independent code review responsibilities, and shipped a material enhancement of the Couchbase Cloud test infrastructure.
*In 6 months time- you'll have delivered tasks through the entire SDLC, from conception to delivery with minimal guidance and your contributions will have made a material impact on the effectiveness of the team and their ability to deliver software without regressions and defects.
*In 12 months time- you'll have established a cadence of predictable, on-time delivery with high-quality work and have measurably improved the reliability, stability, and performance of Couchbase Cloud products through the adoption and use of the test automation infrastructure solutions you have developed.

This role is also open to remote work (USA, UK, India) as our teams are globally distributed. We are a remote-first team. Prior experience working remotely is not required, however, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy and will establish a cadence of on-time delivery with high-quality work.
