Robert Half International Software Developer in Test (SDET) in Vancouver, British Columbia



Are robots coming to take over our jobs? Well probably not anytime soon. But they sure may help! In fact, this is a chance for you to help build some of the bots to make our lives easier. Apparently, we still need humans to help

This particular company is a well-funded software startup located in the heart of downtown and they are building a suite of chatbot products -- cool right?


This SDET (software developer in test) position will be focused on the developing automated tests for testing the software products. This SDET role is suited to a software engineer who has oriented his or her career toward quality assurance testing, and still enjoys writing code. Does this sound like you?


Let's face it, if you're an SDET with automated test development experience, you have options in Vancouver. A big reason to even think about joining this company, is the group of people you'll be working with. Although the company is relatively new, they are staffed with industry veterans who collectively have a heap of experience making commercial software. And the chance to work on AI and bot technology is pretty cool too.

This is a full-time role that includes base salary, paid vacation and other perks.


You'll be working with a lot of the latest tech in this role, and specifically the flavour of the week for the front-end is react.js. In the rest of the stack you'll find RoR, node.js, and some AWS services for cloud hosting. You'll be joining a progressive team where experimentation is encouraged, especially because some of the stuff they're building has never been done before. Bring your ideas!


If you're interested in pursuing this role, the process all starts by getting in contact with me for an initial discussion about the role, including specifics, such as: company name, key hiring managers, and more in-depth job requirements. This is also a great opportunity to talk about your career goals and preferences, and how your goals align with this opportunity. We can even discuss other potential roles which may fit what you're looking for.

If there is a suitable match, then I will make an introduction to the client on your behalf, and organize a series of interviews. The hiring process typically takes 1-2 weeks from start-to-finish.
