Are you ready to tackle big challenges and help
push our QA process forward? We’re looking for leaders that will develop
creative solutions, and help run the process. At Intent Media, tasks are rarely
delegated. Our QA engineers lead the process, and everyone here has the
opportunity to come up with new ideas, to shape the future of our company.
Are you a driven QA engineer with black box or
GUI test case experience? Want to be part of a vibrant, fast-moving and incredibly
driven team that knows how to have fun? Join us!
About Our Product
We’re shaking up the e-commerce industry with a
big idea: enabling e-commerce publishers to monetize the 97% of visitors who
aren’t buying on their sites. Our technology analyzes hundreds of millions of
data points to determine consumer intent. This allows us to deliver incredibly
relevant content that maximizes revenue for our customers.
About our Agile Engineering & QA Process
We believe in short iterations, daily releases,
and working in small teams to solve hard problems. We build things iteratively
while constantly communicating our progress. Our QA engineers report to the VP
of engineering and our QA process is integrated into our engineering builds. As
soon as our engineers have scoped out their development plans for their new
story, they sit down with one of our QAs to plan out the tests they’ll run
while they’re writing the code. You’ll be responsible for overseeing and
administering both manual and automation tests. Everyone on the team is
responsible for quality, and they look to the QA team for guidance.
Love your job
Our employees enjoy coming to work, and we let
them know they’re valued.
Our vibrant team accomplishes a lot every day,
and our management insists upon work/life balance so that we never become
stale. We infuse fun and learning time into our days and our vacation policy
includes a minimum, but no maximum. Walk into our office and you’ll likely find
some of us working quietly on challenging projects, someone playing with one of
the dogs in the office, and maybe one of our teams out of the office for an
off-site work session.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we
take our work very seriously. We believe that in order for our employees to
produce at their top level, they need to have intimate access to strategic
decisions. Our flat structure and open communication allow for innovation from
all levels – ideas flow freely.
