How you can help make a better world of work

We are on a journey of breaking up our monoliths and embracing a distributed services architecture. Our Platform Camp is pioneering this journey, with the support of our Engineering Foundations team. We have a huge opportunity to lay a solid foundation for the next generation of our architecture. Quality automation is at the heart of this, and we are looking for a Principal Quality Automation Engineer to strategically lead us through this journey.

Our tech stack includes React, Ruby, Kotlin, and Go, with our infrastructure running on AWS. Our automated testing is currently powered by technologies including Jest, RSpec, Cypress, Locust,, and Playwright. We have full CI/CD, deploy many times per day, and embrace the SRE model for reliability including SLIs and SLOs.

If you are passionate about making a difference and helping us all evolve the quality of our engineering and our automated testing approaches, we’d love to connect with you.

You will 

  • Lead establishment of a detailed roadmap for test automation in Culture Amp, covering all aspects of the testing pyramid, our emerging distributed architecture, and the roles,  responsibilities, technology, process, and approach.
  • Lead implementation of the framework that is empowering all teams to be writing high-value automated performance, load, reliability, and integration tests.
  • Train the quality practice and the Engineering group in the skills needed for high-value automated testing.

You have 

  • Deep practical experience and technical expertise in automated testing techniques and frameworks across the whole testing pyramid, as well as software delivery in general. This includes load testing and failure/reliability testing.
  • People-focused coaching, training, and leadership skills. Ability to empower, influence, and work with others.
  • Understanding of both coding and software design principles, when and where to properly use abstractions, how to build maintainable test suites.

You are

  • Able to collaborate with non-technical stakeholders and ensure test suites are focused on the most important business value and risk reduction.
  • Able to be very hands on and personally build both tests and test frameworks when needed.
  • Pragmatic and are able to operate within practical constraints.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don't necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit. 

Non average workplaces attract above average people.

We consider ourselves anything but average and strive to make a home for different types of people from around the world to do their best work and have fun doing it. So we have created 4 “not your average” values that we live by, take a read, and if this sounds like the environment for you, please apply! 

We are extremely proud of the Culture we have built, but don't just take our word for it, our Glassdoor reviews speak for themselves! 

We are committed to not only making a better world of work, but also a better world. So we are proud to be recognised as a certified B-Corp.

We believe that inclusive businesses are better, not just for “company results”, but for the world. We have a strong commitment to Anti-Racism, and endeavour to lead by example. Every step we make as a business towards anti-racism is another step we can support our customers in making a better world (of work). You can see our current commitments to Anti-Racism here -

We ensure you have the tools you need to thrive both in and out of work.

  • MacBooks for you to do your best work 
  • Share Options - it’s important to us that everyone is an owner and can share in our success
  • Excellent parental leave and in work support programme, - for those families to be
  • Flexible working schedule - where we can, let’s make work, work for you
  • Fun and inclusive digital, and (in the future) in-person events

Most importantly. An opportunity to really make a difference in people’s lives.
