Job Description

Data Product Development (DPD) Release Engineering team is looking for curious, creative, and talented technologists to join our team. This position is for a Lead Software Engineer role with very solid test automation, CICD and container solutions who will focus on creating new frameworks to mature our processes. You will be developing solutions that automate the release cycle from code check-in to deployment. Your solution will focus on eliminating wait times, manual handoffs, and automating as much as possible in order to improve the overall efficiency and reliability of our release and deployment processes.

We are looking for someone with serious Software Development skills, strong interest in DevOps and Test Automation, and a passion for continuously delivering reliable software. You will work with fellow Development, Test engineers and Product to design and implement Continuous Integration and Test Automation tools and frameworks that are critical in ensuring delivery of products with the highest levels of quality and reliability. This is considered a senior level position. Opportunities to grow your career here at Visa are limited only by your passion to learn, desire to gain expertise, and drive to excel in delivering high quality products and services.

You will be an integral part of the agile development team, and will be assigned a variety of tasks pertaining to design, build and test of software applications and services. Your main focus will be on Test Automation tasks, however, other tasks will be assigned depending on need such as code design tasks, software coding tasks, bug fixes, or manual testing of new functionality. You will always be working on ways to facilitate better quality through the design, implementation, and execution of automated build and test systems. This role is for an individual whose experience with software development forms a strong basis for designing automated test solutions that will ensure that we deliver high quality services. You will have a passion, not only for understanding how the solutions work from a functional standpoint, but also for digging into the code to really understand what has been built to verify that the solution meets quality standards as well as functional requirements. Your strong technical leadership, problem-solving abilities, coding, testing and debugging skills is just a start. You must be willing to go beyond the routine and prepared to do a little bit of everything. You will be an integral part of the development team, sometimes investigating new technologies/tools and at times refactoring existing tools/processes for performance and maintainability, but always working on ways to make us more efficient and provide better solutions to our end customers and application teams. The candidate will perform hands-on activities including design, documentation, development and test of new technologies. Candidate must be flexible and willing to switch tasks based on team’s needs. This position will be based in Austin, TX and reporting to Sr.Director of Release Engineering team.

If this sounds exciting, we want to chat and tell you more about our work culture and environment and see if this will be a good fit for both of us.
