Over 100,000 businesses and millions of people log in to 1Password to unlock smart, simple access to everything they care about. Our vision is to create a safer, simpler digital future for everyone, and our culture values simplicity, honesty and a human-centric approach to solving problems. Come help us unlock peace of mind so everyone can stay safer online.
We are looking for a Staff Developer to join our Internal Tools team and help us improve our overall developer experience, starting with our testing infrastructure.
The mission of the Internal Tools team is to make our colleagues more productive. We seek out roadblocks that hinder quality and productivity and use automation, tooling, and collaboration with other teams to remove them. We aim to make development tasks take seconds, not hours; hours, not days.
As we (and our codebases) have grown, plenty of points of friction have popped up in our development environments, waiting to be found and smoothed out. If it helps us make high-quality software faster and more easily, it’s on the table for you and the team to tackle. In this role, you’ll have a big influence on which of these pain points we tackle first, and how.
To start, you’ll be driving our efforts to make testing easy across all our codebases. You’ll talk with developers from many different teams, figure out where our most pressing pain points are and how we can remove them. You and your team will put tooling and systems in place that make testing effortless for current codebases and set the standard for future codebases.

What we're looking for:

  • Demonstrated capacity to plan large-scale projects and drive them to completion, especially projects where your team is not directly responsible for doing all the work.
  • The ability to deliver impact immediately and iteratively throughout a project’s lifecycle, and measure the impact your team’s work is providing.
  • A history of working well with counterparts on other teams, quickly building relationships and using your rapport to create consensus and distribute work across teams.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, with the ability to drive discussions with technical and non-technical audiences and describe the work your team is doing with confidence and a depth of understanding.
  • A desire to grow and advocate for junior developers on your team and continuously improve the way your team — and the company — gets things done.
  • On the technical side…
  • Experience working across a wide range of services and clients. We have back-end services and CLIs written in Go; web-based clients written in TypeScript; and desktop, mobile, and browser extension client apps built around a common Rust core, all of which you’ll work with at some point.
  • Significant experience with Go, TypeScript, OR Rust and their testing ecosystems, with bonus points for multiple languages.
  • A solid understanding of testing concepts and standard testing infrastructure across a variety of languages, platforms, and scenarios.
  • Experience with a variety of CI/CD platforms, build tools, and development environments. Bonus points for having experienced them in companies of different sizes.

What you can expect:

  • Set direction, priority, and strategy for the testing infrastructure initiative, and Internal Tools in general.
  • Create ways to measure code quality and engineering productivity (collectively, not on an individual basis) to help us make better-informed decisions.
  • Write code and implement tooling with a focus on ease-of-use, reliability, and durability.
  • Share your skills and expertise to help junior developers grow and senior developers expand their knowledge.
  • Work with your own team and across multiple other teams to create an environment where writing tests is smooth and easy and where quality and efficiency go hand-in-hand.
Even if you don't tick all these boxes, we want to hear from you. We understand that everyone's experiences are unique, and you may bring with you something valuable that we hadn’t thought to put on this list.
