Software Engineer, Test & Infrastructure

About the job

Our voice technology is cool, but it’s mostly invisible. That’s why we take great care in surrounding our voice applications with elegant and intuitive web-based applications to make them tangible and usable. Vail’s web development team develops user applications that enable our clients to achieve optimal benefits from our software. Creating intuitively usable web applications is a multi-disciplinary process that requires instinct, creativity, empathy and an eye for detail. We assemble collaborative teams made up of industry experts and neophytes applying principles of application design, graphic art, and even cognitive psychology to ensure that we approach problems from every angle. We’d like to add a Software Test Engineer to one of our teams and we’d like to know if you think you fit the bill. You will if you:

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment
  • Are able to pick up new concepts quickly
  • Can keep an open mind to new ideas
  • Have excellent interpersonal communication skills
  • Don’t mind using those skills to share your best ideas
  • Have an ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment
  • Aren’t afraid of ambiguity and can problem-solve with little direction
  • Have a positive, can-do attitude, and
  • Really want to learn new things

What you can expect to be doing:

As part of the team, you’ll be expected to coordinate with internal IP telephony and web product teams as you develop automated functional and load tests against these products’ web applications. You’ll work in small teams out of our offices in Chicago’s loop, using tools and languages including Selenium Webdriver, RSpec, Cucumber, Java, Ruby on Rails and Angular. You’ll design, code, debate, learn, and share; you’ll work hard but you’ll have fun every day.
