Апісанне працы

At DataRobot we’ve developed a powerful machine learning application, underpinned by a flexible platform that runs in many environments, from customer hardware to the cloud.  Testing is central to our efforts to deliver innovative solutions to our customers. DataRobot seeks to expand the testing we do to better replicate real-world use cases. As a Performance Engineer on our R&D team, you will lead efforts to measure the performance of DataRobot and other tools.


As a Performance Engineer, you will: 

  • Create and improve performance testing tools and framework
  • Run performance tests manually and in an automated way
  • Contribute to the development and maintenance of test plans (scripts)
  • Create new and  improve/maintain existing tests
  • Review test coverage and provide suggestions to improve the quality and cost efficiency of overall system testing
  • Design tests that will measure, validate, and provide insight into the performance of systems and components
  • Automate performance tests, reports, and validations
  • Apply statistical analysis to results and metrics
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to analyze and interpret test results
  • Audit codebase and system design to identify bottlenecks and offer solutions
  • Create, configure, and instrument entire environments
  • Identify performance issues and risks before they reach the production.
  • Help grow a performance competency

We’re a fast-paced team with a commitment to quality software. You need to be willing to learn whatever it takes to get the job done, from building expertise on major cloud platforms, familiarizing yourself with different machine learning tools, programming your own services and libraries in Python, to orchestrating environments in the cloud.
