About the job

At Google, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Google. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, Test Engineers at Google aren't manual testers -- you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Google's massive codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Google's growing suite of products and services.

At Fitbit, our mission is to help people lead healthier lives by empowering them with data, inspiration, and guidance to reach their goals. As a Software Test Engineer, you will advocate for the quality of features in the development pipeline, defining comprehensive test strategies, designing automated test cases to exercise the integrations between various systems, developing test automation frameworks, and implementing automated tests. You will work closely with product managers, developers, and other software test engineers in order to ensure the features we deliver to customers have a high level of quality, correctly balancing test engineering tasks with product deadlines.

Fitbit’s wide range of innovative products, including smartwatches, trackers, and a smart scale, help people lead healthier, more active lives by empowering them with data, inspiration, and guidance to reach their health and fitness goals. Coupled with our leading software and Fitbit Premium, our immersive platform experience delivers personalized experiences, insights, and guidance to support our users’ health and wellness.
