FanDuel Group is looking for an experienced Quality Engineering Manager with a deep understanding of Quality in the Software Development Life Cycle. Quality at FanDuel is a community effort and as an advocate of Quality you will work with various teams to promote best practices and processes that will deliver the best experience for our customers.

You will manage a team of Quality Engineers and Quality Analysts to deliver both features to our customers as well as Testing tools and automation. You will clarify technical requirements, negotiate priorities, and manage test projects. Able to lead a team tasked with directly testing or providing consultation on difficult testing problems as well as building or solving difficult software problems.

You implement a relatively efficient operating model for testing experts to help within adjacent product / service development verticals. You also own the day-to-day management of software delivery of test infrastructure. You help scope development efforts, identify risks, and effectively prioritize deliverables. You make sure your team has adequate time to design the right solutions. 

Everyone on our team has a part to play

  • You keep abreast across a vertical’s roadmaps, how these breaks down across teams and you find a balance between influencing and soliciting requirements, with Software Engineering managers peers, on best course of action for test strategies.
  • You ensure that there are appropriately detailed and concise test plans for large or higher risk development projects.
  • You influence appropriately detailed and concise test results artifacts for manual and automated runs.
  • You establish structures that enable your team to solve complex problems and deliver a wide range of lean testing infrastructure for development teams to utilize and even contribute to.
  • You drive the simplification and optimization of project delivery. You structure efforts to reduce your team's exposure to classic failure models (e.g., requirements not sufficiently understood, ineffective team collaboration, long-term impact(s) from the use of third-party technologies, insufficient testing).
  • You support the adoption of high-quality engineering practices. You know the level of deferred maintenance for every part of test infrastructure owned by your team.
  • Responsible for taking part in the recruitment process identifying the best candidates and providing a great candidate experience.

  • Able to communicate technical concepts simply and successfully, to both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • You’ll exhibit best behavior and exemplify our company behaviors.
  • Demonstrable strong experience of testing in service-oriented architectures and understanding data flow through such systems.
  • You can demonstrate/illustrate an understanding of relatively advanced solution architecture including system design, data design, and data flow.
  • Functional knowledge of a development language such as Python, Java or C#.
  • Understanding of agile methodologies and how they are applied in software development.
  • Proven clear and confident communication skills.
