General Description

Our clients devices are deployed in thousands of households.

In the role of a Senior Software Engineer in Test, you will be responsible for ensuring the correctness and reliability of our data collection and processing, especially on the devices and the backend systems they interact with. Because our data comes from the real world, this isn't a simple matter of right or wrong! You will work with our computer vision and data analysis teams to understand our data and to build quantitative measurements of the efficacy of our models; then you will turn those measurements into automated tests to help us move faster. You will design and build automated tests to assess and compare the efficacy of our computer vision and audio recognition models.

We are big believers in automating everything and in each engineer reviewing and testing what we write. As such you will also review functional code and unit tests, and create the structures so we can effectively test the system.
