Savage is the team behind Procreate, the leading art application on iOS used by the world’s top creative professionals and millions of artists world-wide.  We strive to empower creatives with intuitive and powerful creative tools, offering the best software experience and making it accessible.

Your impact 
Procreate is a product loved by millions for its exceptional user experience. As we continue to scale and develop new technologies, you will be the champion and driver of industry-leading product quality. 

As our first Automation Engineer, you will

    • Introduce and develop sound automation testing infrastructure and workflow, relevant to our environment
    • Expand our testing infrastructure to hardware instead of simulators (iPhones and iPads of all versions)
    • Group bugs based on reproducibility, product impact and engineering effort
    • Escalate critical bugs and communicate quality data to the Product Development team
    • Be the triage between Product Development and Product Care teams to streamline and optimise project execution

Success in this role looks like:

    • Feeling of safety: your strategy and infrastructure for automated testing provides a reliable safety net from code changes disrupting user experience 
    • Reverence for your work: you’ve established ultimate trust and credibility through your obsession with quality, attention to detail and outstanding engineering craft
    • Quality: your work continually improves quality and productivity in product development

Our ideal candidate:

    • Is obsessed with quality 
    • Is methodical and process driven, with high attention to detail
    • Can identify the simplest and most effective way to solve a problem, driven by automation 
    • Has previous experience in mobile application testing (Android experience seen favourably, but you’ll be testing exclusively on iOS)
    • Has strong fundamentals in software engineering. Game or iOS development (Swift and Objective-C) experience is favourable
