How to Get Hired

We asked Sauce Labs for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

If a prospective employee aligns with our core values, that is a good indicator they will be a great fit. Are they customer-centric and focused on helping them succeed? Do they believe in transparency? Are they honest? Do they value everyone’s ideas and opinions?

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We love hiring people that are genuinely passionate about what they do, and who are involved in the automated testing and open source communities - whether it is contributing to open source software projects, regularly blogging, speaking at conferences, or even offering their own online Selenium and Appium training courses. Candidates who have walked in our customer's shoes and can be empathetic with the software development challenges they face are extra valuable.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We’re hiring across the board right now!
