Position Overview:

We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled Automation Engineer to take charge of our UI automation efforts. The ideal candidate will be responsible for automating our internal website, using it as an interface to rigorously test our business-critical functionality and use cases. While UI automation is a key component of this role, we emphasize that the primary focus is on testing the underlying business logic, not just the UI.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain automation scripts for our internal website to ensure the end-to-end testing of critical business processes.

  • Use modern automation frameworks like Playwright or Cypress to implement robust UI and end-to-end testing.

  • Collaborate with developers, testers, and other team members to identify, design, and execute test scenarios.

  • Investigate and debug issues, working closely with the development team to ensure timely issue resolution.

  • Continuously identify opportunities for test process improvement and automation enhancement.

  • Document and communicate test results and progress effectively within the team.

  • Collaborate with the DevOps team to establish an automated deployment pipeline, ensuring that new releases are seamlessly and reliably deployed to production.

  • Design and implement a set of automated tests for validating the success of production deployments, including regression, smoke, and performance tests.

  • Monitor the health and performance of our production systems in real-time, identifying and addressing issues promptly.

  • Implement automated alerting systems to detect and respond to anomalies and critical incidents.

  • Generate and maintain critical performance and release metrics, such as identifying if a release didn't impact or degrade the previous version.

  • Contribute to the creation of runbooks and playbooks for incident response and disaster recovery.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or a related field, or equivalent work experience.

  • Proven experience in UI automation, preferably using Playwright or Cypress.

  • Experience with BDD-driven acceptance testing using relevant technologies

  • Strong proficiency in automating web applications, with an emphasis on testing business logic.

  • Proficiency in JavaScript/TypeScript

  • Experience with MongoDB for backend queries and Tinybird for data processing

  • Experience with API and gRPC testing. (nice to have but not essential)

  • Familiarity with version control systems (e.g., Git) and experience with continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines is important.

  • Familiarity with CLI tools and scripting.

  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.

  • A self-starter with the ability to work independently and as part of a team.

  • Strong interest in the cryptocurrency industry and market making is a plus.

Our recruitment philosophy

We believe the most important aspect of our recruitment process is self-awareness: we are looking for people who have a clear understanding of themselves and what they are looking for in their professional careers. That means that we expect to work with people who not only have the right skills but who have also made the conscious decision to look for a company in our industry and with our characteristics.

Our offer

  • A competitive salary package, including benefits that you choose and manage according to your needs and those of your family (car/bike, meal vouchers, health insurance, 25 days off, etc.)

  • Complete autonomy in your time management thanks to flexible working hours and the opportunity to work remotely

  • The freedom to create your own entrepreneurial experience by being part of a team of people in search of excellence

Keyrock offers you both a career and a large range of benefits that we will gladly discuss in the course of the application process.

As an employer, we are committed to building an inclusive, diverse and non-discriminating work environment. We welcome employees of all backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, creeds and sexual orientations. We hire, reward and promote entirely based on merit and performance.
