Remote Role (US Preferred)

About Vinli

Vinli’s team is transforming the mobility industry via our next generation data intelligence platforms. Our passion is building products and services that unlock the true value of connected cars by showing drivers, passengers and organizations the potential hidden within their vehicles' data. We were founded in 2014 and are backed by some of the biggest names in transportation (Cox Auto, Samsung, Continental) venture capital (First Round Capital, Westly Group) and energy (E.ON). We are partnered with some of the largest players in the mobility industry – including ALD Automotive. Remote work has been a successful part of our cultural DNA since long before 2020. Future members of our team should be intellectually curious, self-starters whose work history demonstrates the courage to create and the maturity required to bring products to market.

About the Role

Are you the type of person who loves to tinker with things until you figure out how they work? Do you get a thrill out of pushing the limits and breaking things to find their weaknesses? If so, then you might be the perfect fit for Vinli's Quality Engineering team!

As a software development engineer in test, you'll have the opportunity to flex your coding muscles and write Python code to test REST APIs. You'll be working with some of the latest language features, libraries, and designs and you'll be part of an amazing team of engineers. You will write code using tools such as PyTest, Locust, Playwright and Appium to test our backend Go microservices in a true, cloud-based, big-data application environment, and a frontend written in TypeScript and Vue.js.

Not only will you have the opportunity to showcase your individual excellence, you will gain a solid understanding of a full-scale, microservices-based architecture supporting hundreds of thousands of vehicles. You'll be creating the future of mobility with a group of like-minded individuals who know how to have fun while getting the job done.


  • Write awesome integrated tests that exercise frontend functionality (VueJS), mobile applications (iOS & Android), and backend APIs, for the purposes of:
    • Integration and functional tests (Does it work?)
    • Security (Is there *any* way that this could cause a security issue or inappropriate access to data?)
    • Scalability & performance (Is the system ready to handle millions of transactions? What types of user load should we expect?)
  • Augment automated testing with personal investigations which cover:
    • Adversarial testing (There has to be a way to break this thing!)
    • Usability testing (Sure, it works; but is it put together in a way that a normal human could use it?)


  • Experience in software development with a focus on quality.
  • Strong coding skills, including the ability to program in at least one scripting language (Python preferred).
  • Understanding of RESTful APIs and the ability to perform HTTP requests from the command line or a tool like Postman.
  • Ability to use the command line.
  • A sense of pride and a strong desire to ensure bug-free code is being deployed on a daily basis.

About Our Ideal Candidate

  • You thrive in challenging environments that require collaborative problem solving.
  • You prefer to spend your time coding and collaborating, not in meetings.
  • You take pride and responsibility seeing the product you worked on meet the real world for the first time.
  • You are capable of independently prioritizing your duties and still work well with a team.
  • You can both accept and provide thoughtful, respectful constructive criticism.


Vinli offers competitive benefits such as health care* (including medical, dental, and vision) and a highly flexible PTO policy. In addition, we will work with you to support individual career development opportunities such as conferences, advanced training, and certifications. Vinli transitioned to fully remote operations in March 2020, but we have a longstanding history of operating & supporting successful remote teams to drive a productive, professional, and enjoyable remote work culture.
