Experience & Skills

Education - A Bachelor's Degree

Technical - You have 5+ years experience in application development and test automation. You are proficient in designing, implementing, and improving test automation frameworks. You have developed applications as well as testing tools/test automation frameworks such as Selenium, Cucumber, Nightwatch, Capybara, Rspec, etc. You are proficient at reviewing application code to identify implementation issues that could negatively affect testability of the application or system as a whole. You should be familiar with languages and tools such as Ruby, Javascript, Python, Groovy, Bash, HTML5, REST APIs, MySQL, as well as SDLC, agile/scrum, jenkins, and source control (e.g. git).

Leadership – You are a subject matter expert in your role and the team and/or products you’re working on. You educate others on quality assurance and test automation best practices and share that knowledge and experience with others outside of your direct team. As a leader, you work to develop the skills of other engineers as well as qa analysts as they are learning test automation. You provide leadership in the execution of automated test scripts and test environment issues. You will collaborate with tech leaders on test automation as we define the vision and milestones towards Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment.

A great communicator – You have excellent oral and written communication skills. You make sure your team and other teams are clear on expectations and next steps. You manage your own priorities and provide input and collaborate with others on our test automation vision and roadmap.

Experience - You have worked on quality and application teams in an agile environment. You have set and enforced test standards for unit and automated tests. You are aware of new features and frameworks and are proactive about bringing information to the tech organization. You don’t just automate tests as requested. You design tests for scale, look for automation opportunities and work closely with teams to help them identify these opportunities as well. Ideally you’ve set up processes for monitoring tests and have a process to proactively update tests in parallel to application updates. Maybe you have worked in an organization that accomplished continuous integration and continuous deployment. Bonus if you have experience with security and performance testing.

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.


Implementation Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The Product team works with other teams to balance customer needs/user wants in a way that educates, promotes good decision-making and drives sales. We're trying to find that balance by listening to our internal/external stakeholders, considering company goals and making decisions that positively impact business, our customers and their employees.


Lead Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

At Jellyvision, you don’t just hear from your manager when you’ve done something wrong. Jellyvision is big on positive feedback and celebrating success. In my experience, management has been great at helping me identify what my strengths are and pointing me in that direction as I progress here.


Senior Business Development Specialist

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.


VP of Implementation

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m in love with our primary product ALEX because it has real impact on people including some of my own family members! Our product helps users to smartly choose their benefits in an easy-to-understand and friendly way. Also, we are always coming up with new ideas and better versions of our products. Jellyvision is always on the go!

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
