Overview and Responsibilities

Software Test Engineers (STE) design Pluto TV’s testing infrastructure and perform tests to examine and validate large-scale content operations and releases. As an STE, you partner with content editors and streaming operations to ensure PlutoTV content is operational for new channel launches. Troubleshooting is an understatement; it's more like trouble forecasting. The STE will also act as a representative of the Software Test Engineering Team in scrum meetings and provide input on how to provide better quality coverage for the applications supported.
Work in an Agile Software Delivery methodology highly focused on developing automated tests within an iteration.
Ensure that content streams are working as well as all ancillary metadata that goes along with the content.
Provide a risk assessment on the defects identified and set the correct priority and severity.
As an STE, you are expected to perform ad-hoc/exploratory tests from a feature as well as regression testing.
