Quality isn’t just a goal. It’s the whole point.
Our customers are under a lot of pressure to deliver great software. But to compress lifecycles, add features, and compete in a world where ‘every company is now a software company’ is hard. And one mistake can mean their reputation, even future. That’s why it’s our mission to help. At any part of their software development lifecycle (SDLC), we provide the tools and discipline to focus on quality while streamlining their processes. So our customers can create and deploy software that works as designed – especially when it’s needed most. And we’re looking for people to join us.

SmartBear is seeking a Software Engineer to work across the full stack of the Zephyr Scale product.  This product provides test management capabilities to Atlassian products, working as a plugin/extension for Jira and Confluence, for managing both manual and automated testing processes. You will be working on improving the product and adding capabilities for our thousands of users. 

As a person, we would love it if you are: 
  • Curious about other people’s opinions and perspectives, and happy being part of a creative team, bouncing ideas back and forth. 
  • Keen to work in an inclusive, collaborative environment, giving and receiving feedback openly in whatever format works best for you. 
  • Compassionate towards yourself, your colleagues and your customer. 
  • Keen to help continuously improving the way we work together. 
We especially welcome applications from people who up until now have tended to be under-represented in the world of tech. 

  • Tackle interesting challenges as improving the reuse of components among our different test management solutions, working with a single page application and a fully automated pipeline for continuous integration and deployment. 
  • Work with several technologies and languages – Java, Spring, JavaScript/Typescript/React, Terraform, Docker, AWS (RDS Aurora, S3, ECS and more) and others. 
  • Work within a collaborative high-performance team of developers, testers (for test automation), support engineers and more, geographically spread across our different locations –UK, Poland, France, India and Brazil. 
  • Implement new functionality in close cooperation with the team and users. 
  • Engage in peer design and code reviews. 
  • Maintain test coverage. 
  • 4+ years of Java backend development experience. 
  • Experience with Docker and containerization. 
  • Exposure to the AWS platform, particularly with DynamoDB, ECS, S3, Lambda and RDS Aurora. 
  • Knowledge of design patterns and best practices. 
  • Solid understanding of object-oriented programming and writing maintainable code. 
  • Solid knowledge of software testing using different approaches or tools such as BDD, TDD, unit testing, integration testing and performance testing. 
  • Experience in modern version control systems such as Git. 
  • Experience designing and consuming web services (REST). 
  • Experience with RDBMS (E.g. MySQL) – schema / query design & implementation. 
  • Experience with Agile software development. 
  • English on at least a B2 level.
