Overview and Responsibilities

At Pluto TV, we approach testing differently -- we are testing, and breaking, code constantly, but we help rebuild it better. Data Test Engineers (DTE) test and verify Pluto TV’s analytics events across all applications. This role is a Lead DTE with a focus on Data Quality and Client Apps. In this role you will apply your QA, Data Quality, and SQL experience to manually and using automated scripts to test the firing of analytics events and verify those events in downstream databases or files.

The position requires strong mobile QA experience with a focus on data, knowledge of data pipelines from raw data to reporting, and demonstrable SQL skills. The lead DTE will work closely with the Manager, Data Test Engineering and will also act as a representative of the Software Test Engineering Team in scrum meetings, and work alongside product management to address how to provide better quality coverage for the applications supported.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Work with project teams implementing analytics features into client applications and verify the firing of those analytics events by manually working with devices or initiating scripts.

  • Maintain and/or develop automation tools to support Mobile Device test framework(s).

  • Verify capturing of analytics events in related file systems or databases through SQL, or a scripting language (Python, Java, shell scripting, etc.).

  • Work with Business Intelligence and Product Management to create test strategies, plans and cases that provide acceptable coverage for a given data pipeline, from event creation to reporting.

  • Perform data profiling on downstream data for the purposes of finding field anomalies and possible data quality issues.

  • Work in an Agile Software Delivery methodology, highly focused in creating data validation tests based on requirements.

  • Work with other members of Data Test Engineering to compile a regression test suite that can be executed quickly.

  • Experienced in leading, mentoring & coaching other team members.
