Principal, Software QA Engineer at Infinera Corporation
Stockholm, SE

We are expanding in System Test & Solution Validation


Infinera is strengthening our Continuous Integration and Verification team within RnD with System Quality Assurance Engineers. The team is responsible for System Integration testing and Solution Validation of our current and next generation optical networking products. The successful candidates will join a team with extensive system knowledge of Infinera Metro products with customer quality in focus.


Your Key Responsibilities Would Include: 

Implement, perform, monitor and improve system verification tests of our existing products and products/features in development. This includes node and management systems as well as hands-on test setups in our newly expanded R&D Lab. You may also take Release Test Leader roles from time to time and take lead in test process, methods or tools discussions.


The test focus is the non-functional requirements e.g. performance characteristics, interoperability, robustness, security, stability, upgradeability, usability and maintainability.


Our goal is to automate these tests whenever suitable, to ensure we at all times have the right knowledge about our products and systems. In addition, we need to ensure that the development teams get the feedback continuously, should any implementation degrade the system level performance, via e.g. monitors or visualizations.


As a QA engineer, you will be responsible for ensuring the quality of Infinera's products before the new features are released to end users. This mean that you will work with most of the company's portfolio which leads to a quick and good overall system understanding.
