Senior Automation Test Engineer (Pune area – 1 position)

At Ajira AI, we focus on developing smart products that leverage artificial intelligence algorithms. We build complex cloud based and mobile business applications and we solve very significant systems problems along the way. Our products work across our customer ecosystems to help people.

We’re very pleased to be expanding our product development team. We’re a close-knit group of innovators that have previously launched very successful companies. We are growing in spite of the Covid-19 slowdown and we’re now looking to add a Senior Automation Test Engineer to our team in Pune.

You have solid recent experience with QA automation using Selenium to automate testing of web applications that use front-end frameworks such as Aurelia/Angular/Vue/React. If you have some hands-on experience with other regression testing tools such as Appium that is great. Fundamental knowledge of SQL is required.  Any experience with NodeJS is welcome. You are the kind of Automation Engineer that others seek out to solve their technical difficulties. You keep up to date with what’s happening in the QA automation world and know the level of reliability that regression testing provides to a business application and you are able to make suggestions to improve on it further. You know the limitations of Selenium and you are motivated to learn new technologies.  You are committed to quality, set high standards for yourself and pay attention to detail.

That’s a high level summary of what we’re looking for but before we dive into the detail, you’ll probably want to know who you are going to be working for and what your work environment will be like:

Who we are:

We are an Insurtech company with a core mission of leveraging ai algorithms and techniques to solve complex business problems. We like to think that solving these business issues for our customers helps make them better at serving their customers. Some of our applications help people who may be injured or have been in an accident. In our opinion that’s a worthwhile pursuit. While our current business vertical is insurance, we see our technology expanding to other business verticals with time.

We love what we do and not the least of which is that we have the opportunity to try out and ‘play’ with the latest advances in tools and technology.

Who you’ll be working with:

We are a collaborative, tight knit group of contributors and we try to foster a very supportive work environment. While we’re headquartered in the Chicago area in Lisle, our software labs are in Pune, India. We have decades of experience working with remote team members. We’re looking to expand our team in Pune, India.

You’ll find our CTO a joy to work with; someone with excellent technical skills, always willing to mentor, roll up his sleeves and get deep into the technical issues. He possesses rare technical insight and no matter the day or time he’s always willing to contribute to move things forward. Our CEO is a rare combination of business and technical skills with remarkable vision and the ability to easily cut through the most complex issues to find the simplest answer. You’ll be working side by side with other motivated professional members in what will be an amazing opportunity for you.

Your work environment:

We are a group of talented and dedicated individuals and through we are a software company, we have a ‘no insane hours’ rule.

We are not clock watchers. If you need to take off for a couple of hours to visit the doctor or dentist go ahead. We look at what you’re accomplishing, not how many hours you spend logged into your computer or in the office. We conduct meetings on a daily basis with our Chicago office so some overlapping hours are necessary. During Covid-19 our entire team is working remotely from home.

Our work is performed using the latest technology and tools. We’re constantly innovating and improving our delivery capability by building our own components and tools as well as licensing new tech that we’ve tried and that works in our environment.

We are an open, collaborative, supportive work environment and suggestions are not just welcome, they are appreciated. You’ll find our product roadmap is exciting and full of opportunity.  We believe in compensating our core team with higher than prevailing market wage.
