Role Description

At Cypress, we’re on a mission to build an essential testing platform that makes automated testing delightful and effective. Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Hundreds of thousands of developers and QA professionals use Cypress.io to write better code faster and release with confidence.

Cypress is currently used in over 90 countries by hundreds of thousands of developers across more than 30,000 organizations. Cypress has over 1,800 customers in more than 58 countries across 45 industries and includes marquee names like Atlassian, Crunchbase, GitHub, PayPal, and Slack.

The company was founded in 2015 and has raised $55M in capital to date, including a $40M Series B financing in November 2020, led by OpenView Partners, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Battery Ventures, Sapphire Ventures and Stripes.co.

Do you get excited about developer tools? Do you have a keen eye for software quality/testing practices and methods? Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge with fellow developers? Are you eager to solve the challenges that developers like yourself face? If yes, then join the new Developer Experience (DX) Team at Cypress to empower developers to build and ship higher-quality software faster than ever before.

The DX Team is an engineering team focused on ensuring developers can be productive and effective with Cypress via the development and dissemination of testing knowledge, methodologies, and solutions.

The DX Engineer is a high-impact role with the responsibility of providing thought-leadership to other developers within the industry through highly prescriptive and practical solutions. We have to elevate the status quo of testing workflows and knowledge to enable developers to be productive while adhering to appropriate and scalable practices.

The DX Engineer is a cross-functional role requiring you to collaborate with product design, other engineering teams, customer-success, marketing, and external collaborators/partners to ensure that users have a smooth, high-fidelity, and productive end-to-end experience with Cypress.

The DX Engineer is a highly visible role that puts you right in front of the Cypress community via conferences, workshops, and other speaking engagements. This responsibility requires you to be a technical expert and communicator with a strong ability to clearly articulate specific problems and solutions to support the diverse use cases of Cypress.

This role is a remote-friendly.

Responsibilities

Develop demonstration apps, specialized plugins/libraries, integrations with other frameworks/services, and testing-related methodologies.

Research, engineer, and experiment with new ways to improve developer workflows and practices.

Validate and experiment with early/pre-release feature developments to help ensure a robust and consistent developer experience.

Author and engage with the community via documentation, curated presentations, demonstrations, and learning guides to make it incredibly easy for developers to adopt Cypress.

Foster relationships with the open source community and establish partnerships that improve the experience and workflow of Cypress users across common frameworks and libraries.

Requirements

Extensive experience using client and server-side JavaScript and frameworks such as Angular, React, or Vue. Additional experience in non-JavaScript frameworks is a plus. Experience with CI/CD pipelines.

Aware of cutting edge technology and tooling.

Exceptional written, visual, and oral communication skills to engage a variety of audiences, including developers, QA professionals, and senior decision makers.

Highly motivated and a strong desire to make an impact. Capable of being productive when working either collaboratively or independently.

Open-minded, accepting of different perspectives and willingness to measure and experiment.

We are an inclusive employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About Cypress

Web development has advanced in leaps and bounds in the last decade, but front-end testing has not. Testing sucks. It’s the part that every developer dreads.

It’s often harder to write a passing test than an actual feature.

We want to spend our time building cool things, and we need tools that match how we build modern applications.

Therefore we built a revolutionary new testing tool from the ground up. We have created a product that we love and actually use ourselves.

Our team is highly experienced and passionate about solving problems. We’re lucky enough to have some of the best minds in the industry.

Being open source, Cypress is evolving faster and better than if we worked on it alone.

Now developers can ship their software faster and more consistently, with confidence.

We believe testing needs a lot of love, and we are here to foster a tool, a service, and a community that can teach and benefit everyone.

Company Culture

It’s a marathon, not a sprint — we value being thoughtful, deliberate and intentional over sloppy and fast. We recognize this means we will make mistakes to move quickly but with that we want to fail fast and recalibrate. Our objectives are the bigger picture and not short term goals.

Autonomy & Ownership — we hire adults to do adult jobs, which means we strongly interview candidates and if we bring them here, we trust them, explicitly to do their job.

Candid & Respectful Collaboration — We embody directness and transparency from the first phone conversation with candidates to an employee's last day at the company. We believe that people can handle direct feedback and it has and will continue to create a culture of trust and respect.
