Do you love to eat? Are you passionate about testing and technology? At Olo, Test Engineers create code-based testing solutions for teams. We work as embedded testers, meaning that we are full, collaborative, members of feature teams. We are responsible for driving the quality culture on our teams as well as helping teams derive technical solutions for hard-to-test problems.

As a Senior Test Engineer, you’ll work with developers and QA Engineers to prevent defects and performance issues through testing and automation. This includes a variety of testing activities, not just updating or building frameworks, but whatever is needed to cast a wide quality net.

We believe testing is a craft requiring training and skill. We invest in our employees. Our employees love to learn, and challenge themselves, and challenge each other to grow. We encourage collaboration, leadership, and mentorship.

You can work at Olo’s headquarters in New York City’s Financial District or remotely from anywhere in the U.S. In fact, more than two-thirds of our engineering team is remote.
