The Opportunity

The Software Test Engineer is a highly-autonomous role with endless opportunities to impact our teams, clients, and company through your innate curiosity. You’ll advocate for continuous delivery and build quality in the entire software development process. 


*This is not a remote position and may require some travel.


  • You’ll consistently drive the quality and health of software projects
  • You’ll apply critical thinking to products, requirements, and processes to confidently deliver high-quality software
  • You’ll define and craft testing solutions, including both manual and automated aspects of testing
  • You’ll dive deep to solve obscure issues
  • You’ll collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of developers, designers, and clients
  • You’ll provide mentorship and give constructive feedback


  • You’ve developed test plans, test cases, and executed tests on an array of platforms (e.g. mobile vs. web)
  • You’ve owned the QA process on projects with multiple Test Engineers
  • You have experience with test automation frameworks for mobile and web apps (e.g., Selenium, Appium, XCTest UI, Espresso)
  • You have a strong desire and appreciation for continuous learning
  • You’ve collaborated with others to solve tough problems that go beyond your own skill set (e.g. improving test environment stability, building robust build pipelines, etc.)
  • You’ve written test or application code in at least one development language
  • You’ve built, extended, and used test automation frameworks
  • You enjoy taking ownership of tasks within a team and solving problems
  • You’re a self-starter who embraces new technologies, enjoys researching new tools and applying them as needed


P.S. In an ideal world, you hit all the bullet points we listed, but hey — we know that’s a lot of bullets. If you feel confident about a good amount of them, we can ramp you up on the rest. 

Bonus Points

  • You have experience with integration/end-to-end testing of backend services
  • You’ve used performance and load testing tools (e.g. JMeter)
  • You’ve tested complex and large mobile apps
  • You’re familiar with unit testing frameworks ( e.g. TestNG, JUnit, xUnit)
