Test Automation Engineer

New York, NY

JW Player is the world's most widely-adopted web video player, generating more than 15 billion video streams a month. We’re looking for an Automation Engineer who is as excited about helping scale our functional and automation testing processes as they are about new video technologies and finding ways to test them!

In this role, you will:

  • Work closely with the Product and Engineering teams to define acceptance criteria and build detailed test plans

  • Take an active role in increasing the percentage of automated test cases by writing Cucumber feature files and contributing to our Selenium/Ruby framework

  • Execute hands-on functional testing on the JW Player, testing integrations across multiple platforms and configuration scenarios

  • Collaborate with development teams to understand how development changes affect ongoing automation efforts

  • Work as part of a scrum team in an agile environment


  • Minimum 3-5 years relevant test automation/software development experience

  • Experience with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS; hands-on JavaScript coding/troubleshooting experience preferred

  • Experience using open source tools like Git and Jenkins

  • Proven automation experience with Selenium Webdriver

  • Skilled in analyzing feature requests/requirements, and determining potential tests that should be created

  • Ability to learn new technologies, tools, and processes quickly

Bonus Points

  • You’ve successfully implemented new testing/automation tools and processes

  • You’ve implemented and maintained automated visual tests using tools such as Applitools

  • You’ve held a developer role in the past

  • Comfortable multi-tasking between several projects and releases

  • Knowledge of video encoding, ad networks, content management platforms, and/or video streaming protocols

This is a full time role based in our NY offices.
