At ASAPP, we are on a mission to build transformative machine learning-powered products that push the boundaries of artificial intelligence and customer experience. We focus on solving complex, data-rich problems — the kind where there are huge systemic inefficiencies and where a real solution will have a significant economic impact. Our CX performance platform uses machine learning across both voice and digital engagement channels to augment and automate human work, radically increasing productivity and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of customer experience teams.
We are looking for a new member to join our Quality Engineering team as a Senior Test Automation Engineering Manager with strong technical and soft skills. You’ll work with other stakeholders across the organization (developers, product, platform, SRE, etc) to drive and support our vision: to empower development teams to produce high quality work, allowing them to ship faster, more predictably, and with high confidence.  You should have the experience, passion and drive to productionize our test automation solutions, to be used by the product engineering organization. As a part of our team, you will work closely with the Director of the area and other Quality Engineering Leadership, translating the department Vision to a Roadmap. You’ll be the manager of a globally distributed team of +8 Automation Engineers, and expected to also act as a coach, mentor and key decision maker.
