Today, Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Hundreds of thousands of developers and QA professionals use Cypress to write better code faster and release with confidence.
Cypress is currently used in over 90 countries by hundreds of thousands of developers across more than 30,000 organizations. Cypress has over 3,500 customers in more than 74 countries across 65 industries and includes marquee names like Atlassian, Crunchbase, GitHub, PayPal, and Slack.
The company was founded in 2015 and has raised $55M in capital to date, including a $40M Series B financing in November 2020, led by OpenView Partners, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Battery Ventures, Sapphire Ventures, and Stripes.co.
Cypress is ambitiously changing the status quo of testing on the web with our next-generation, open source App and a Cloud service that enables an unprecedented developer experience. Our mission is focused squarely on making testing faster, easier, more approachable and enjoyable than ever before.
The Cloud team builds Cypress’ commercial offering which provides engineering teams quick, high-fidelity feedback loops to continuously deliver high quality software with confidence. As a Lead Engineer focused on the platform elements of the Cloud product, you’ll be building the short and long-term data storage patterns, pipelines, warehouses, APIs, and developer ergonomics for user-facing feature development teams. Your work will directly impact the daily workflow of thousands of organizations around the world.
Our ideal candidate is data-informed, results-driven and able to drive highly technical product and platform improvements to fruition. They will draft tech briefs on why a problem should be solved, evaluate an array of potential solutions, articulate tradeoffs, make high-impact decisions and lead projects to effect time bound outcomes while measuring the success of solutions. If you are comfortable with owning and operating web-scale Node.js services, high-velocity data pipelines and scaling highly available cloud infrastructure, you’ll love this role and our team.
Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, and are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%. The point we’re getting at, it doesn’t hurt to take a chance and apply!
We are an inclusive employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
