You'll own the quality of Sovrn's products, and ensure it by architecting and implementing test automation, tooling, deployment, and measurement frameworks. You'll learn complex systems and leave no stone unturned - from the JavaScript that renders when a reader views our publishers' sites, through our APIs and data pipelines, and into real-time dashboards and reports. Mostly, you'll be someone that gets shit done, no matter what, and that's something you'll take pride in.

  • Prepared to demonstrate an opinion on when to apply software quality best practices and tooling.
