We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer in Test to join our team at Jellyvision.

This role involves writing code to drive efficiencies and automate manual tests and processes. You will be creating complex, end-to-end and integrated test suites. You will gather requirements, write tests, and integrate those tests into our deploy workflow. You will work with QA, Operations, and different engineering teams to make this happen.  

Much of your work will revolve around the ALEX Benefits Counselor. ALEX is a multi-media experience that is customized for each of our hundreds of clients. We need a candidate eager to tackle the complex challenges that come with this unique product. Your work will also include adding automation coverage to our ever-expanding ecosystem of internal tools and new products.


  • Analytical: You are genuinely curious. You don’t just test what someone codes. You dig into the details, understand the requirements and foundation for which they are built upon. You are great at creating tests for criteria coverage, but also have a keen eye for edge cases and negative tests. You can also determine what tests will provide the most value and focus efforts accordingly.
  • Languages: Most of our existing testing system is built in Ruby; however, we are starting to use JavaScript more and more. We’re looking for someone with a strong background in creating automated tests using Ruby and/or JavaScript. 
  • Test Frameworks: You have set up frameworks and written automated tests for web applications. This is not just with record and play tools, but writing code to customize your automated tests. You can read page source and understand basic HTML/CSS/JavaScript syntax. Our current frameworks include Cabybara, RSpec, Cucumber, Selenium, and Nightwatch. 
  • RESTful APIs: You can call endpoints in code and parse the response. You know the difference between a GET and a POST, between a query and a payload.
  • Terminal, Bash, Git: You know how to handle yourself in the terminal. You can change directories, edit files, and check in code from the command line.
  • Unit Testing:You have written tests in code, and you can articulate knowledge of key concepts such as: assertions, hooks, and test data.
  • Object-Oriented design: We are building an automated test framework, not a collection of one-off scripts. You have experience writing classes, modules, and methods that encapsulate the complexity of your code. Maybe you have created a class diagram or two.
  • Source Control: Working without Source Control should be blasphemy to you. Experience developing software with Git, especially familiarity with git-flow, is helpful.
  • Bonus: A strong candidate would have knowledge and experience with some of the following: Agile methodology, Docker, Jenkins, Continuous Integration, Web development, Page Object Model, Databases, AWS.



As a senior engineer in test, you help guide best practices for the team. You will also be a mentor to other test engineers and to QA analysts as they are transitioning from manual to automated testing.

We're looking for seasoned test engineers - the total length of your work history isn't the most important thing for us but ideally you've got 4+ years of relevant experience.

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 Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about the diversity, equity, and inclusion projects that I get to be a part of. We’re have emerging Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that have engendered out of a toolkit our department created, streamlined trainings, and a diversity & inclusion strategic framework in place to name a few!


Recruiting & Onboarding Coordinator

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 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.
