As a Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) at Hedia, you will be responsible for developing and maintaining automated end-to-end tests, currently written in the Detox framework.

You will play a key role in improving the overall testing strategy and implementing effective test automation techniques. Managing Jira tests and their linkage to automatic tests will be essential to ensure comprehensive coverage and traceability.

Your responsibilities will also include testing the product on various phones and screen sizes to ensure optimal user experience as well as testing third-party integrations. Conducting thorough testing of new functionality and identifying bugs early in the development cycle will be crucial to maintaining high-quality software.

Additionally, you will be responsible for maintaining different Android/iOS versions on physical devices, including various makes and models.

Performing “monkey testing” during internal builds is necessary to uncover potential issues and edge cases. You will also maintain and perform manual tests that cannot be automated or require human interaction. Enhancing and maintaining the CI pipeline to enable efficient integration and testing will be an important part of your role.

As Hedia Diabetes Assistant is classified as Software as a Medical Device (SaMD), documentation is an important part of the role, where you will document software validation processes and contribute to technical documentation.

You will be actively participating in the risk management process and validation of risk control measures. Investigating and diagnosing bugs reported by users or detected through monitoring tools as well as close collaboration with our support will be vital to maintaining the stability of the product.

Finally, conducting regression testing during software updates will ensure the product remains reliable and functional.

By fulfilling these responsibilities, you will contribute to the delivery of high-quality software, enabling individuals with diabetes to effectively manage their condition and improve their overall well-being.

We need you to have:

👉Proven experience as an SDET or in a similar role, with a deep understanding of software development life cycle and quality assurance practices.

👉 Proficiency in programming languages such as JavaScript, Python, or similar languages.

👉 Strong experience with test automation frameworks, including Detox, Selenium, or similar tools.

👉 Knowledge of mobile application testing on different devices, platforms, and screen sizes.

👉 Familiarity with bug tracking systems like Jira and maintaining test cases within Jira.

👉 Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.

👉 Experience with CI/CD pipelines and version control systems, preferably Git.

👉 Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
