Since its official release in October 2019, Autify has been implemented by over 300 clients, and our client base is continuing to grow. While we provide all the essential functions required in a test automation platform, we continue to receive requests for new functions and improvements. Autify is working on growing the product further by adding new features. For this reason, we are expanding our backend engineer team to further develop and improve Autify’s highly reliable test execution mechanism.
Desirable Skills & Experience
Desired Personality Traits
Autify, Inc. is a start-up company founded in San Francisco by a team of engineers who were the first Japanese team to graduate from the top US accelerator, Alchemist Accelerator. With the mission to increase creativity with the power of tech, we develop and provide Autify, an AI-powered software testing automation platform.
In October 2019, we officially released Autify for Web, our test automation software that targets web applications. Also, in October 2021, Autify for Mobile for mobile app testing was officially launched and we have closed our $10M Series A. Although the product lineup is continuing to expand and we have been able to provide all basic functions needed in a test automation platform, we continue to receive requests for new features and improvements.
Autify's engineering team is an international team, with more than half of the engineers being foreign nationals and all developers being English speakers. We have a good culture where members respect each other's backgrounds.
Since we have two products, Autify for Web and Autify for Mobile, our development engineers are divided into two teams corresponding to each product. We have over 15 front-end and back-end engineers who work closely with product managers, QA managers, designers, technical support engineers, and machine learning engineers who are responsible for resolving technical inquiries from customers. The product manager is in charge of the general roadmap. The product manager develops a rough roadmap and works with the engineers and designers on the details of each feature and bug fix before implementation. Depending on the size of the feature, we appoint a feature lead from among the engineers to be in charge of the project and give them the discretion to make technical decisions.
Our Development Process
We create a ticket in advance about what kind of function we will develop. In some cases, the product owner creates it based on user feedback, and in other cases, each team creates bugs and investigation requests directly.
The development cycle consists of one Sprint, which takes two weeks. Development tasks are assigned during the planning stage on the first day of the Sprint, and we hold a daily standup meeting to check the overall progress and any problems. (Due to the time difference, it is done at lunchtime).
We review code on GitHub. After the review, the merged branches are automatically deployed to the staging environment, and E2E tests are performed (which Autify does itself).
After testing on the integrated branch, it's deployed to the production environment. Deployment is done several times a week as needed. The developed function will be demonstrated by the developer themselves to all employees at each Sprint.
Note: The determination of working hours (start and end times) must be made to the extent that one's own duties (including guidance and supervision of subordinates) are properly performed and that there are no obstacles to work in terms of coordination and communication with other employees.
