About You

Our Automation Test Engineer will closely interact with the Gurobi R&D team. Your prime responsibility will be to maintain and extend the continuous integration and testing environment for the Gurobi optimization engine, ensuring our product meets the highest quality standards. Our testing environment spans across multiple platforms and a variety of programming languages. Together with the rest of the team you will also ensure sufficient code coverage for existing features and new ones in development.


Since the Gurobi optimization engine is a library component employed as a backend by other software systems, we do not have a graphical user interface. Hence, the QA tests to be maintained and extended evolve around API functionality and mathematical and numerical correctness of our internal algorithms.

  • Master’s level education or equivalent
  • Background in mathematics, scientific computing or engineering
  • Professional QA  experience for backend software (no GUI testing only)
  • Python, C 
  • Background setting up and maintaining virtual machines and test environments

Nice to Have

  • Basic knowledge on mathematical programming (linear programming, integer programming)
