About the Job

Join a team that is building software that makes a
difference. You will help create and extend automated testing
frameworks, and design and build automated tests that allow the whole
team to move faster. You will deeply understand what is important to our
business, and make good decisions about what to test, how deeply to
test it, and the risks incurred by what we’re not testing. A large part
of our testing happens automatically after every build of the software,
leaving us time to focus on the important changes that don’t lend
themselves to automated tests.
We need first class software
engineers that are interested in building software to validate and
verify our products. We need someone as passionate about helping our
customers as they are passionate about technology and good engineering
practices. We’re an agile shop, but we’re not fanatics following a
religion: we take the pieces that work for us and improve our processes
from there. Most importantly, we’re still a work in progress, so when we
bring you in, you have a lot of room to influence what we do and how we
do it.

About You

• You have 2+ years of professional test software development experience, as well as a strong web testing background.
• You have strong scripting skills, especially working with Ruby, Perl or the latest and greatest language of the day.
• You function well in a fast-paced, informal environment where constant change is the norm and the bar for quality is set high.
• You are extremely comfortable working with SQL and databases for test set-up and trouble-shooting purposes.
• You are comfortable enough with Linux to set-up and maintain your own QA environment.
• You know that insuring a good customer experience trumps testing to the spec, because sometimes even the specs have bugs.
• You love to figure out how software has been built and pride yourself on your ability to break it.
• You enjoy debugging applications to get to the source of the potential issue.

You are self-managing and have the ability to adjust to competing
priorities and allocate your time as necessary to get the job done.
• You have a BS in Computer Science or another analytical field.
