Job Description

CommonBond is building the leading values-driven, customer-centric financial services company and is looking for people who want to help our company grow. Our mission starts by tackling the broken student lending market and changing the way people think about student loans. We accomplish this with lower interest rates for our borrowers, a state-of-the art technology platform, and high-touch customer service. Additionally, our 1-for-1 model is the first of its kind in financial services: for every degree fully funded on the CommonBond platform, we fund the education of a child in need for a full year through a partnership with Pencils of Promise. We are backed by great investors, have a killer team, and are growing rapidly!

We are looking for a Software Engineer in Test to help build our testing infrastructure and developer tools. Your contributions will support our features and services along with our developers in writing and delivering high-quality, bug-free code. You have experience writing well-structured tests while encouraging other engineers to do the same. You can also set up and maintain a stable test infrastructure that executes scheduled and triggered builds reliably and efficiently without jeopardizing important fixes and new features. You have entrepreneurial instincts, a strong sense of product, and a desire to build something from the ground up. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to impact all levels of our technology development as well as the broader team as we grow.
