POSITION: Ruby Developer in Test
Chatham is growing our test engineering team. We are looking for passionate software developers to automate testing and work with feature development teams to speed development and to make sure we release quality code.
Our goal at Chatham is to change the way that software testing is done. Here, you will not repeatedly execute boring manual test scripts. In fact, destruction of boring activities is encouraged. There is a place for manual testing when working side by side with developers in the early stages of a project, but we believe in eliminating that manual testing role through automation as fast as possible – and we believe that is the job of everyone on the test engineering team, not just a small number of experts.
Chatham is an agile development shop, using Microsoft technologies (.NET) and HP QTP. You will be heavily involved with all aspects of development. The work you will do is key to our ability to deliver code to production in fast, iterative cycles. Early in sprints, you will work closely with business users and other developers to create testable user stories, speeding the development process and preparing for testing. Other tasks include developing and implementing test strategies, developing manual and automated tests, and providing immediate feedback to your development team. We develop our newer tests and frameworks using open-source scripting languages and libraries, such as Ruby.
It would be great if candidates have a CS background and are active programmers (for work and for fun) – but we believe that the best test engineers are born, not made. If you have the curiosity, potential and drive – and can show us some evidence of a good trajectory, we can help you go the rest of the way.
Come in and let’s talk about changing the profession of software testing.
Chatham has a relaxed, yet demanding environment, where, refreshingly, people have just as high expectations of themselves as they have for others. We strive for self-governance and aspire ourselves to be aligned with Chatham’s core values: Acting with Honesty & Integrity, Respect for Each Individual, Doing Excellent Work, Working Together, and Building Long-Term Relationships.
We are an IT organization committed to Lean development principles, Agile practices and continuous improvement. We subscribe to these ideas and methods across all of our technology-based development and operational areas.
Chatham employs a global IT delivery model, with staff located in Kennett Square Pennsylvania, Denver Colorado, London, Krakow Poland, and Singapore. We also utilize high-caliber agile development partners in South America.
The Krakow, Poland Office
The Krakow Office, founded in June 2007, is not an outsourcing center. It is an integral part of the Chatham worldwide organization, involved in intellectually challenging and highly impactful work. Team members in our Krakow Office work closely with the U.K., Asia and U.S. teams and are valued by them as equals.
Some highlights of our work environment:
Agile software development methodology with Scrum
Two-week sprint cycles, with release at the end of each cycle
Highly collaborative work environment
Open work space
Whiteboards (real and virtual) used daily
Debate and respect are not mutually exclusive
We would rather be governed by principles than rules
We work as a team across all areas of the company
Casual dress; wearing a suit does not make you work harder or smarter
We like to have fun too: ping pong, disc golf (four hole course on PA campus), potlucks, chess, impromptu fun.
