Volley Automation is a parking technology company that designs solutions for fully automated and adaptable parking infrastructure. Our goal is to create sustainable parking solutions that can be reconfigured and repurposed throughout a building's life. Our technology parks cars in far less garage space compared to traditional garages with a valet-style experience for all.

Role Description

Volley Automation is an fully-automated parking service. Our goal is to create sustainable, parking solutions that are compact, efficient, and can be reconfigured and repurposed throughout a building's life. We also make EV-charging easier and more efficient. Are you intrigued by the idea of putting cars away with robots? Do you hate parking? Do you love parking? If so, we have job openings here at Volley! 

Volley’s engineering ecosystem is wide ranging: complex robotics systems that move cars, bay stations that measure vehicle dimensions with 3D lidar scanners, algorithmic multi-agent planning software, and frontend user applications for mobile and web. Our infrastructure is deployed primarily on-premise, but also includes services on AWS, iOs/Android, IoT devices, and AGV’s (robots).

We are looking for a Sr. Software Developer Engineer in Test (SDET) with solid experience in setting up integrated deployment pipelines and automated testing infrastructure from ground up.

  • Assist in SW releases and test/improve our deployment pipeline for frictionless garage system updates. Help communication of release notes.
    Vet and recommend tooling, document test plans, and maintain testing architecture for this purpose. Drive adoption of these tools through collaboration with all engineering teams.
  • A strong attention to details like enforcing contracts between applications and micro services (e.g., API testing).
    Contribute to documentation and troubleshooting guides that support an engineering wide on-call rotation (e.g., PagerDuty, Slack alerting, et al)
  • Work with Operations team to triage and help deal with field issues as they arise.

Basic Qualifications:

  • At least 4-5 years building and supporting production CI/CD pipelines.
  • Writes testing modules and unit tests with proficiency and minimal guidance. Designs with guidance/feedback and codes independently.
