Location: San Francisco, US

Company: Dolby Laboratories, Inc.

Join the leader in entertainment innovation and help us design the future. At Dolby, science meets art, and high tech means more than computer code. As a member of the Dolby team, you’ll see and hear the results of your work everywhere, from movie theaters to smartphones. We continue to revolutionize how people create, deliver, and enjoy entertainment worldwide. To do that, we need the absolute best talent. We’re big enough to give you all the resources you need, and small enough so you can make a real difference and earn recognition for your work. We offer a collegial culture, challenging projects, and excellent compensation and benefits.



  • We are seeking a talented software engineer to help test cloud-native solutions and infrastructure for intelligent A/V content processing and delivery systems. You’ll work with an outstanding team to deliver next-generation scalable, reliable, and secure systems based on microservice architecture, cloud media processing pipelines, databases, and CDNs.


  • The main responsibility within this role is to design test plans and implement in Python automated tests against a Kubernetes-based deployment, including functional (test the actual application exposed via an HTTP API), non-functional (security, reliability...), and deployment (scalability, release procedures...) tests.


  • This is not a manual testing position.



  • B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science/Engineering or equivalent experience.
  • Demonstrable experience in Docker.
  • Demonstrable experience in Kubernetes.
  • Professional experience in Python.
  • Experience with Linux and BASH.
  • Usage of Git.


Nice to haves:

  • Experience writing test plans and implementing test cases. This is optional. If you don't have previous experience you will be coached by a more senior test engineer on acquiring a "test mindset" and learning test methodologies.
  • Experience in multiple modern object-oriented programming languages (e.g: C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python...), both dynamically and statically typed.
  • Knowledge of AWS, GCP, Azure, or similar Kubernetes providers (e.g.: EKS).
  • Knowledge of basic AWS serverless/FaaS services (Lambda, DynamoDB, S3)
  • Experience with CI/CD systems.
  • Experience in Agile/Scrum software development.
