Our team combines expertise in healthcare, data science and technology to improve the health and well-being of our communities. We are developing the infrastructure and solutions to harness the profusion of health information for good. Our data-driven solutions span three primary areas: research, care and innovation. Programs include Project Baseline - our research initiative to increase participation and evidence generation in clinical research; Onduo - our personalized virtual care platform, which includes connected tools, lifestyle coaching and clinical support; and Debug - our effort to reduce the threat of mosquito-borne diseases by combining machine learning with sterile insect technique. We’re also actively working to combat the spread of COVID-19 through new programs like Healthy at Work.


As a Software System Test Engineer at Verily, you will use your strong technical background to define test strategies, organize testing processes, and optimize system level testing through creative and comprehensive test methods you bring to the table and test automation that you’ll write. You will be driving test programs and ultimately play a key role in ensuring that product quality keeps our users safe and delighted. You will use your knowledge of testing and testability to not only test our products at the system level, but also to influence better software design, drive product excellence adoption into engineering practice, activate bug prevention strategies, promote testability, improve accessibility, and protect the privacy and security of our users.

Communicate testing and product quality status to various levels of the organization. Drive communications and consistently deliver accurate product quality snapshots for stakeholders. Find and thoroughly report bugs, track fixes, and verify bug fixes.
  • Perform ad hoc and exploratory testing to find defects before the product is in the hands of users. Follow up on defects and regressions to improve product quality and providing input on factors that influence product excellence (Focused Utility, Simple Design, Crafted Execution).
  • Oversee accessibility, internationalization, and localization testing as needed.
  • Deliver independent and reliable release acceptance, regression and functional test certification for the system under test.


Minimum requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • 5+ years of software system test engineering experience, with system level software testing of Web applications and client-server integration testing.
  • Experience working with web automation frameworks (e.g. Selenium WebDriver, etc) and experience in automating manual test cases using any programming language (e.g. JavaScript, Python, Java, etc).
  • Demonstrated experience in independently creating test strategies and test plans, building comprehensive end-to-end system functional test protocols, and executing full system-level verification for software systems of various sizes.
  • Demonstrated understanding of software system architecture and ability to identify automation opportunities for the project. 
  • Demonstrated experience working with SQL and relational databases.
  • Excellent written, communication and interpersonal skills, with meticulous attention to detail that extends beyond written and verbal communication.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience working as a software system test engineer completing verification and validation testing on a safety-critical regulated product (i.e. med device).
  • Experience working in fast-paced startup environments and successfully working on multiple products simultaneously as test lead or the only test engineer on a complete software system.
