Quality and reliability are of utmost importance in a critical enterprise product. We are looking for a Senior SDET to start and lead our backend testing team.

    • Build and maintain efficient test frameworks and pipelines for performance, stress, production, and reliability tests.
    • Work in an agile model as part of a distributed team to develop fully automated test cases for functional, unit, and integration testing.

    • Partner with SREs to achieve CI/CD nirvana.
    • Prior experience testing distributed systems or databases is a huge plus.
Why Isima?

bi(OS) is not an iteration or amalgamation; we're creating something entirely new. It allows any company to work at a speed and efficiency that was until now reserved for the rare few.  This is a formidable goal and will require a lot of sweat and tears. Being part of a team that imagines the unimaginable and has fun along the way is the reward.  We are looking for people who want to make a dent in the universe, and who have a sense of pride and ownership in their work.  If you are hungry for such an opportunity, are self-driven to have an impact, and excel in a work-from-home environment, we would love to talk to you!
