Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

Who We Are

At sweetgreen a Senior QA Engineer plays a crucial role to ensure our platforms and products meet the highest bars of excellence. QA Engineers report to the QA manager and work hand in hand with engineers, product managers, delivery managers and business stakeholders.

Sweetgreen maintains a number of digital and technology-driven physical experiences to offer innovative ordering and fulfillment experiences for our guests. Validating our products is a combination of both manual and automated testing. Our QA team is passionate about solving difficult technical problems, and takes personal pride in the success of our products.

Success depends on balancing their schedules to ensure we ship great features, while also building and maintaining frameworks for ongoing automated testing.

Top Goal - As soon as feasible through comprehensive onboarding, actively develop JS-based automation test scripts for multiple applications including web, mobile (iOS, Android) and APIs. You will perform this in an agile, squad-based environment, with clear expectations for feature performance, dependencies, and shipping dates.

 

Your Impact 

  • End to End Mindset: A guest order flows through many systems before making it to our customers. In your first two weeks, you will develop a deep understanding of the order lifecycle by reviewing the existing system design and documentation, with an eye towards quality tripwires. By day 21, you will have contributed to those areas that need additional QA documentation, in both Confluence and elsewhere. As someone using the products day in and out as part of testing, you’ll gain insights into issues or quality impediments that affect our users and team members.
  • Hit the Ground Running: Within 30 days, you will conduct code reviews of unit, integration, and end-to-end. These reviews will inform development and ongoing maintenance for test automation frameworks tailored to sweetgreen’s unique needs.
  • Documentation: Within 45 days in seat, you’ll contribute to our established information architecture within Confluence and put a plan in place to realize 100% documentation of the QA responsibilities you own. We’re growing quickly, and optimizing to to ease future teammate onboarding, debugging, and knowledge sharing of complex services while mitigating the risk of tribal knowledge.
  • Implement QA Best Practices: By day 60, you will be well-acquainted with your peers in engineering, product, and program. You will help to advise product teams on the methods by which you can best test and conduct quality assurance within an agile engineering environment, through both relationships and processes you work to enact.
  • Carry the Torch: By day 90, your practices for test automation frameworks will be in the wild and well-received. In turn, you will help to mentor junior QA engineers and analysts, as well as contributing to onboarding new hires and ensuring the QA body of knowledge is accessible and well-understood.
  • Raise The Bar: At sweetgreen we dedicate a portion of our attention to matters that may not be immediately customer facing and instead allow for us to work smarter, or faster, or simply reduce friction in the developer experience. You’ll own your squad’s specific backlog that is focused on operational excellence.

Your Accomplishments 

  • Demonstrated track record of testing methodologies such as unit, integration, functional, manual, load and regression. 
  • Experience writing functional automation tests using Selenium Webdriver, Jest, Node.js and Javascript
  • Knowledge and experience with AGILE methodology.
  • Experience leveraging performance testing and tools including pA11y, WAVE and WebPageTest
