Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET), Public Safety

Software Development Bonifacio Global City, Philippines


As a Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) at Tyler Technologies, you will play a vital role in ensuring our public safety solutions work reliably and efficiently at scale, supporting first responders with software used on the front lines of law enforcement, fire rescue, and public safety agencies across the United States.

We are looking for an experienced, pragmatically minded, visionary leader to move our testing practices to the next level; increasing automation and integration with our DevSecOps pipeline, expanding test coverage, coaching and guiding other testers, and engaging with designers and product owners to ensure requirements are testable, with engineers to ensure their work can be tested, and with release managers so everyone is clear about what’s going out in upcoming releases and is ready to roll.

While focused on the future, you will need to be prepared to grab a pick-and-shovel, engaging in hands on-testing to support our releases while instituting change by example and through advocacy for improvements in practices and tooling.


  • Have a rich background in testing across a variety of current technologies.
  • Contribute to and maintain existing automation tests and frameworks.
  • Know how to advocate successfully for change and not be afraid to have collaborative, hard conversations looking to balance the organization’s long-term interests with short-term needs.
  • Foster a culture of “built-in quality” and promote the adoption of effective test automation within our product teams.
  • Be driven to develop creative and innovative solutions to solve complex testing problems and improve test automation effectiveness.
  • Provide product teams with test automation tools and frameworks that can be leveraged to accelerate the consistent delivery of high-quality software.
  • Guide the product teams in helping determine what needs test coverage and at what level (unit, integration, end to end).
  • Understand the critical importance of defining quality metrics with stakeholders, determining how to collect them, and communicating risk and success based on key indicators.


What you will bring:

  • Strong passion for quality and excellence.
  • Multiple years in a software engineering role with demonstratable knowledge of multiple programming languages.
  • Strong understanding of OO and SOLID programming principles.
  • Ability to think critically, with strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Experience testing web technologies, RESTful APIs, and building a test automation suite.
  • Ability to function well in a high-paced, and at times, stressful environment.
  • Be curious with an ability to think outside the box and learn new things quickly.
  • Team player with excellent communication and collaboration skills.

  • .NET/C#, JavaScript
  • Cypress and/or Playwright
  • Postman
  • GitHub
  • Performance/load/stress testing
  • Building CI/CD Pipelines
  • Jenkins
