Benchling’s suite of unified applications are mission critical in the day-to-day work of scientists, and we strive to ensure that the core functionality and workflows in the applications they depend on are always functional and performant. As a Software Engineer on the Quality Engineering team, your focus will be on accelerating the development of automated end-to-end test suites to help protect that functionality and performance. The automation you create will target modern web-based applications such as a digital Notebook, Molecular Biology, Registry, Inventory, Requests, Workflows, and Insights.
You’ll be embedded within the Quality Engineering scrum team and partner with application scrum teams to define suites of prioritized automated tests covering frontend UI or backend API functionality & performance. You’ll implement the highest priority tests for new and existing scenarios first, while helping the teams maintain their overall backlog of test automation across all priorities. You’ll parter with our Customer Success team to define the most critical customer workflows across our product and create automation to ensure those workflows always work in production. You’ll help define, update, and maintain test automation best practices across frameworks.
Each application engineer is responsible for the quality and test coverage of the features they ship. Today, engineers create thorough unit test coverage and manually verify feature functionality in a staging environment before releasing to production. Every feature of a given complexity or risk must be shipped with an end-to-end test created by the engineer shipping the feature. You’ll work closely with engineers shipping new features to align on the overall suite of prioritized test automation and add additional coverage as a fast-follow to the test coverage developed during feature development and release.
