Senior Test Engineer to Pingdom


Pingdom is on a mission to make the Internet faster and more reliable. Lofty? Sure. Doable? Absolutely. At Pingdom you’re faced with the same technical challenges that companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google meet. Here, you are responsible for developing and maintaining cutting-edge solutions for all our products and services. You take quality as a point of pride, because your work is used by some of the most well-known brands in the world. And that, honestly, is kind of exciting.


You have a lot of freedom to try new technologies in a variety of environments. We love that you’re intrigued by modular and scalable technologies and thrive on the idea of doing well to help others do even better. At Pingdom we care about actual knowledge and we all love what we do. After all, it’s not the years that count – we know that you can have senior skills without being a senior citizen.

The best part though is that you’ll impact the Internet significantly every day and be part of an ambitious, fun, and talented team. We can’t wait to have you with us.



You will be responsible for developing and executing test plans for our complete technology stack - ranging from back-end systems and databases to user interfaces running in a web browser or a smartphone. As a tester your skills include the ability to design software for test automation.

You will lead the QA work done by the whole team. Unit tests and integration tests are written by the development teams. Your role is to make sure they are relevant, precise and of high quality. Your role also includes maintaining a complete view of the organization's overall quality work.



      We love the Internet and for us, the web comes first. We expect you to understand how the web works.
      We know that you have years of experience working with test strategy and developing tests for various scenarios. And of course, most of your test suites run automatically without any user input.
      Experience with System testing and Performance testing.
      Since we deploy our software across our central data centers, our global network of distributed probes and Amazon Web Services, knowledge of distributed systems is required.
      Experience with tools such as Selenium and SimianArmy/Chaos Monkey.
      Good knowledge of tools for issue tracking, repository management, continuous integration and containers. We use JIRA, Bitbucket Server, Bamboo and Docker.
      Most of Pingdom's software stack is written in Python and JavaScript, so programming experience in those languages are valuable.
      You also have experience with databases, such as MySQL or MongoDB, and are most likely used to working with Linux. Experience from message brokers is also valuable - we like to use RabbitMQ.


Who we are

Since the start in 2006, Pingdom is focused on making the Internet faster and more reliable. We do this by creating easy to use tools and services for website owners, regardless of who they are and what size their websites are. We pride ourselves in building a powerful, yet easy-to-use service with a watchmaker’s focus on detail, design, and precision functionality.


The agile way is the Pingdom way. Interested in TDD? Perfect, we are going to be the best of friends!


There’s a ton of exciting challenges ahead if you’re interested in a service used by Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, MailChimp, and more than 700,000 other users from all over the world.
