npm is the world’s largest software repository, with over 10 million users and over 26 billion software package downloads every month. Our systems are critical to software engineers all over the world and used in every industry. Your role will be to ensure the quality and performance of these systems; from the public registry, which serves packages to open source engineers and small organizations, to our new enterprise solution, which provides single tenant registries for medium and large customers.
What You’ll Do
Your role will be to build a team and help establish process, practices, and tooling in order to:
– Translate acceptance criteria from Product into automated tests
– Improve the quality of our releases through automated test suites
– Increase the confidence and frequency of releases to production
– Introduce automated load and resilience testing along with performance criteria
If these are elements you are excited about and are interested in helping npm build a team of engineers dedicated to this mission, this is the ideal role for you.
Our Code of Conduct
Why You Should Join
In joining the npm team, you’ll become an important part of a small but dedicated engineering team. We strive to provide a sensible working environment that doesn’t ask for or encourage habitual overtime and we offer flexibility in schedule. We have a progressive parental leave policy and vacation time is not just encouraged, but celebrated and enforced. We also understand that healthy schedules lead to better outcomes. To help ensure this balance we have contracted support night coverage so we don’t interrupt anyone’s sleep.
We believe that high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other’s assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we actively seek a diverse pool of applicants, including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.
Where We Can Hire
Our headquarters are in Oakland, California. We can best support you if you can overlap with US time zones. We currently have team members across the US time zones and in the UK, Canada, and Mexico. We cannot currently sponsor new work visas, but we can transfer existing H-1Bs.
