Who we think would be a fit...

We are looking for someone who not only loves building high quality software, but is also passionate about getting stuff done. You might have worked at large top name companies, but you prefer small nimble companies with tight knit cross-functional teams that focus on getting stellar products to market quickly. You have the skills and experience, but you still love to learn - and you want to work with super talented folks to build great products.

Additionally you:

  • are comfortable with speaking up for quality when under pressure to release
  • thrive in a fast paced environment where you need to balance high quality with continuous delivery to the market
  • are a “rebel with a cause” who looks beyond the obvious for continuous improvement opportunities
  • believe quality not only involves the end user functionality and usability, but also performance, reliability, and security
  • consider yourself a software engineer focused on quality first and foremost
  • have a track record of projects completed on time - you excel at getting things done
  • are comfortable with testing Service-oriented architecture (SOA), microservices, and REST APIs, as well as functional, systems integration, and browser compatibility testing
  • can picture both the technical and business objectives and challenges when you read high level requirements
  • know various test frameworks like the back of your hand and choose which ones to use based on the project or objective at hand, not just because one is popular at the moment
  • enjoy heads down testing
  • have good communication skills, love collaborating, and are fun to work with
