Founded in 2013, Skedulo is a fast-growing SaaS company headquartered in San Francisco and with offices in Australia, Vietnam, and the United Kingdom looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) to join us!

The SDET lives within a squad/tribe of product development, with a line reporting to an Engineering Manager and guidance and technical direction from Product Quality Manager. They work directly with Software Development Engineers and Quality Analysts to understand the features, technical design and this insight allows the SDET to implement automated tests and testing tools to deliver quality delivery with high efficiency.

Skedulo builds deskless productivity software for the 80% of global workers who don’t work in a traditional office setting. From employees in fixed location facilities to mobile field workers on the frontline, deskless workers number 2.7 billion worldwide. Our platform helps enterprises intelligently manage, schedule, dispatch, and support deskless workers on the go, whether they are full-time, part-time, or contract employees.

DHL, Sunrun, The American Red Cross and hundreds of other organizations have used Skedulo’s Deskless Productivity Cloud to book over 5M appointments worldwide. The company has secured over $115 million in funding to date, led by Microsoft's venture firm M12, Costanoa Ventures, Blackbird and SoftBank.

The SDET has end-to-end responsibility for projects of increasing complexity. They are responsible for complex tasks and complete them despite roadblocks, grabbing others for help or insight as necessary. The SDET requires very little oversight beyond high-level direction; as complexity of features are delivered, the focus shifts from functional to stability and performance of our product.
