Serato is one of the world leaders in audio software for professional DJs, producers and musicians.

World renowned artists such as Fatboy Slim, A-Trak, Snoop Dogg, and DJ Snake love our products and use them on a regular basis.

We are based in central Auckland and are currently looking for a special candidate to join our team as a Test Engineer. This role is a hybrid role with a programming component focussed on creating and maintaining system tests in Python and unit and integration tests in C++ along with test analysis responsibilities including manual test analysis, design execution.

A test role within Serato involves working in a small agile team to help design and implement our core products.

In this role you will work with the team to help clarify and improve the design of changes and enhancements to our key products such as Serato DJ. You will then work with your team and the broader development to evaluate and improve the quality and to ensure that we have automated processes in place to ensure the applications are functioning as intended and specified. Finally, in the spirit of agile development, you'll work to continually improve how we do all of this.

To be successful in this role, you will need to have:

  • A programming or software development background either with good results from a relevant degree or experience as a software developer, combined with a strong interest in testing
  • Or a solid understanding of testing methods and approaches with a musical or signal processing background and some real programming experience

Plus these:

  • Experience contributing to a high-performing team ideally in a commercial environment
  • Fantastic written and oral communication skills
  • Experience with troubleshooting and a passion for problem solving with a logical, methodical approach.

    You also need to be in Auckland or free to relocate here.

      But wait – don't give up yet!

        It is more important for us to find the right person with the right attributes, rather than to tick boxes. We know some skills can be learned and experience can be gained.

        What's in it for you?

        The opportunity to:

        • Work for a homegrown New Zealand company that is successful in the global market. We are growing in size but have managed to maintain our non-corporate, music-loving culture. You can see reviews on glassdoor.
        • Grow your career and skills in the area of software testing and perhaps automation.
        • Earn a competitive salary.
        • Work within a culture that is passionate about music and creating world class software.
