Technical Lead – Testing Infrastructure (27077)

UK - Fully Remote
to £90,000 DoE plus Benefits

Testing systems for upstream open source projects

This team is looking for a technical lead to help in their goal of devising and developing continuous integration and automated testing systems for Open Source projects. Your work will be bespoke for each project so strong experience with web services and API design along with a general understanding of test infrastructure is more important than knowledge of any specific tool. As you will be integrating your systems into existing Open Source projects, good understanding of how Open Source projects are run is critical to success.

You must have:

  • Held a senior position in a significant Open Source project
  • Experience developing web services especially API design
  • Strong Python skills (other languages are a nice addition)
  • Good understanding of continuous integration systems

This is a multinational team, part of a company with offices around the world. You will work remotely and ideally be located in the UK, however qualifying candidates from Europe or the USA will be considered. English is the lingua franca, so good written and verbal English skills are essential.

Keywords: Python, Django, Flask, FastAPI, Open Source, Web Services, API Design, Continuous Integration, CI, Automated testing
