Our specialized skills range from UI test automation through API testing and on to load and performance testing. We are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to guide our growing discipline and shape our cutting-edge test automation frameworks.

Our engineering tech stack is rooted in .NET (C# and F#) and SQL Server running in an AWS infrastructure and we use modern tools such as GitHub, TeamCity, Octopus Deploy, Datadog, and Sumo Logic, as well as heavy use of OSS. Our automated test frameworks leverage the same stack and tooling, while incorporating industry standards such as Selenium and k6.

COVID-19 Impact Olo is committed to the well-being of candidates, employees and our community. The Olo NYC Headquarters will be closed for the foreseeable future because of the global outbreak of COVID-19. While an in-person interview is typical for many roles at Olo, we will conduct interviews via video conferencing while our HQ is closed. Olo benefits from the fact that over half of our workforce is remote, therefore we are accustomed to conducting interviews via video conferencing and we anticipate no impact on our recruiting timelines. We encourage candidates to share any concerns or questions with Olo’s recruiting team.
