Overview and Responsibilities

At Pluto TV, we approach testing differently -- we are testing, and breaking, code constantly, but we help rebuild it better. Software Test Engineers (STE) design Pluto TV’s testing infrastructure and write code to examine and validate large-scale software development and deployments. As an STE Lead, your partnership with software engineering leads to create and code tests concurrently with product development is important. You build tools that help developers be more productive, write better code and test it themselves. Troubleshooting is an understatement; it's more like trouble forecasting. The STE Lead will also act as a lead representative of the Software Test Engineering Team in all publishing scrum meetings and provide hands-on leadership work to provide better quality coverage for the applications supported.

  • Working in an Agile Software Delivery methodology highly focused in creating data validation tests based on requirements.
  • Providing a risk assessment on the defects identified and set the correct priority and severity.

  • Developing and enhancing testing and defect remediation process
