Our mission is to help people everywhere find a job and company they love.  We are disrupting an industry by changing how people search for jobs and how companies recruit top talent. 

We’re looking for a passionate, skilled and driven Sr. Software Engineer in Test to help us take our product to the next level. At Glassdoor you’ll have the freedom to leverage your intuition, creativity and expertise to help one of the top job sites in the world to continue its rapid expansion.

A typical week includes working with Product Managers and fellow Engineers to understand and clarify new feature requests that support Glassdoor’s business goals. You will collaborate with fellow Software Engineers in Test to discover new ways of creating and executing tests. By providing guidance on testing methodologies, you will help keep the entire team accountable for the quality of work released in our biweekly sprints.
