Developer in Test
Eigen Technologies

We are an artificial intelligence and data science start-up based in the heart of London and operational in New York City. Our team is currently on the hunt for a Developer in Test with several years’ experience delivering web applications in Python. Sounds like you? Please read on:

Your objective
As a Developer in Test at Eigen, you’ll use your skills and expertise to make our systems more robust. Your scope will be broad, ranging from the creation of feature level verification tests, to writing and maintaining test infrastructure to run those tests. You will be expected to champion (and contribute to) test coverage. As an integral part of release cycles, you will take part in architecture discussions and pull requests. Eigen is a fast-paced environment in which you will be expected to identify and fill gaps quickly.

What you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Design and write automated tests for our existing code and core algorithms
  • Champion CI best practises, architectures, methodologies and toolsets
  • Take part in code reviews
  • Collaborate with a team of motivated developers, product managers and designers to identify, monitor and address product performance gaps (e.g. security, speed, functionality, uptime)

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • 1+ ship cycles delivering software in Python and Django REST, as demonstrated by an online portfolio / git repository / set of links in your cover letter
  • Hands-on testing and automation experience, preferably in a CI environment
  • Strong interest in software analytics (i.e. monitoring for speed and load), the factors that affect web deployment (i.e. browser compatibility, devices, accessibility, network coverage), various CI techniques (e.g. dark launching) and an ability to speak to these points
  • Strong interest in mentoring and supporting our junior developers as they progress

Good to have:

  • An interest in machine learning and/or data science
  • An interest in working with clients

You are:

  • Relentlessly curious and a life-long learner, with a passion for self-development
  • A team player. You take ownership of your work, think long-term and act on behalf of the business, not just your immediate peers. You are happy to pitch in.
  • Both kind and courageous. You believe that trust is earned by listening attentively, speaking candidly, and treating others respectfully. You take time to understand the whole picture, and have the courage to challenge decisions, even when this is difficult
  • Always looking to improve (yourself, the company, our process, our products) and create lasting value for our clients.


  • £25k – £40k depending on experience – plus equity

Please note – we ask all successful candidates to complete a coding test (which is then reviewed and discussed as part your first interview with us)
