    Automotive UI Designer

    What do you think of self-driving cars? Will Google jump in and make their own cars, or will Apple buy a car company of their own? Do you still like the smell of gasoline, or are you more keen on the Green direction Tesla is taking us? Will V8 engines dominate, or is the ridiculous torque from electric engines going to win?

    Sr SW Test Engineer – UI Framework

    Do you secretly wish to break and/or destroy software, bringing it to its knees? Have you <actually> developed or tested a UI framework, rather than merely using it to develop a UI application? If you want to work for a real Finnish product company with no bureaucracy, where you get to learn about 3D graphics and actually be valued as a senior test engineer, we have the perfect role for you…

    Rightware (www.rightware.com), based in Espoo with a presence in Munich, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Detroit and Silicon Valley, is wedged between the gaming sector, design studio, and software company…., as the leader in interactive 2D and 3D user interface (UI) software. Our Kanzi UI solution is the world’s most advanced UI design and deployment solution for high-end automotive cockpits. Since 2008, we have led and influenced the design of Audi’s UI cockpit cluster (for example), and our latest clients in this premium sector are ridiculous (meaning impressive). We also develop industry leading system performance benchmarking software, for customers such as Amazon, Intel, Microsoft, Samsung, NVIDIA, Apple, and the list goes on..

    As you know, there are very few actual product companies in Finland. This is true software product creation, not subcontracting. You can learn and leverage our graphics technology while diligently searching for bugs and trying to beat the crap out of our software. What’s more is that we value testing far beyond the normal software company, where programmers tend to be ‘ranked higher’. We see it differently….. Rather, we recognize the importance of quality, and in linking testing with development in such a way where if you know your sh*t, you will be valued, respected, and well paid! Yes, you can actually grow and be a real hero here. Its not about the demo, its about a commercial product, which needs to be useable with the masses. You get to really direct the efficiency of software development, while immersing yourself in all the latest mobile technologies and hardware, NVIDIA K1, OpenGL APIs, Metal API (Apple), DirectX 12 etc.

    So! In this Test Engineer position you will be at the focal point of the mobile and embedded world, where your tasks include testing of our Kanzi Solution product itself as well as testing customer applications built on top of the Kanzi Solution on different embedded platforms and mobile devices. (let me be clear: this is about UI middleware testing, meaning you absolutely must have previous experience testing a UI framework!). You will be tasked with keeping our product top-notch quality, and to improve test automation, deep within our Engine. Your work will consist of all aspects of software testing. You will plan the feature testing with the developers, create and automate test assets and maintain the test automation in the continuous integration system. We have ever-expanding test automation for rendering output, application UI testing, performance testing, long period testing, you name it. You will be increasing and maintaining those assets too. Working with errors and eating bugs will be part of your daily routine. If you know how scenes interact, that would be eggsellent. Not graphics programming necessarily, but understanding of textures and layouts and terms.

     We require:

    • UI framework testing experience
    • Desktop GUI development knowledge (WPF, Qt, GTK, Swing,…)
    • C++ programming skills
    • Scripting skills (Python, Javascript,…)
    • Embedded testing experience
    • Performance profiling experience
    • Ambition to develop yourself as test engineer
    • Can-Do Attitude, Motivated
    • Good debugging skills
    • Strong team working skills and working in Scrum mode
    • Degree from computer science and several years of relevant work experience
    • Excellent English skills

    We really really appreciate:

    • Working experience with UI automation testing
    • Graphics programming or testing experience, preferably with OpenGL/ES
    • Experience with DCC tools like Blender, 3DSMax or Maya
    • Hobby projects in gaming, demos, or OSS

    We have around 60 employees, who genuinely enjoy coming to work every day. Our office is located at the Trainer’s House campus in Espoo, meaning we have cool good-looking neighbors, a couple different gyms in the basement, a recording studio, a couple saunas, a phenomenal Rafla/cafeteria, a PS4 and a professional FOOSBALL table in our lobby, weekly game nights, cocktail parties for employees etc. Come and learn, come and grow, come and show us how you will take us to the next level.

    Please send your English CV with the subject heading ‘Test Engineer’ to jobs@rightware.com

    We look forward to meeting you!
