Hi Anthony,Thanks for this nice writing. I have couple of questions here.1. As far as i know there is a huge difference between Test Engineers and Software Engineers in Test.Q. For which role this article is applicable.2Q. Which language test engineers has to code in.
Even I do Agree.So basically top coders will be placed here.mostly the test engineers have a different skill set than Software Engineers in Test. Looks like google is looking for coders.Skill set Ref is taken from the site...<a href="http://www.askqtp.com/>AskQTP</a>
why does not have the test engineer in China?
Hi Liang, I am a TE at Google's Beijing, China office. Google hired TEs in the first two years when Google began to set up the Beijing office in China. Google may not be hiring TEs in China right now, but you should check the job site periodically.In the Beijing office, there is little difference between TE and SET. You will be assigned to a project based on your skills, your interests, and the project's requirements (eg. project priority). Both TEs and SETs manage the test/release process, write test cases, write automation scripts, and implement test tools which can accelerate the test/development/release process.
Hi Xiazhang(or Xia?), Thanks! I am based on Shanghai. I am interested in how google test engineer works. Do you write testing tools by yourselves? And do you focus on black box testing or white box testing?
How does the salary of a TE compare to that of an SET or SWE?Are TE's considered to be less technical than SET's or SWE's?
@JMonty42: Compensation at Google is a function of multiple factors. Without going into specific details, it's safe to say that comp is a function of geography, prior experience, tenure in role, and most importantly impact. The coding bar at Google does differ between TE and SET, however we do see blending across roles when it comes to coding capability.
Can an experienced test engineer who knows the product very well move on to being a software engineer?
I appreciate the effort of putting this nicely with appropiate details.I can very well relate to it that describing the job of a test engineer is difficult at times. I feel lucky to work with some of the great folks in indurty and companies like Adobe, which provided the similar culture.Thanks Again ! I am inspired to blog about similar stuff soon.
Hi,Nice one! You have kept in a well versed manner about the role of a tester, Not only in Google but anywhere testers need to foresee the situations the application or product will be and test accordingly. Anyway working for Google will provide vast options to explore..
