We are looking for someone who has sound and broad QA domain knowledge and skills working with complex applications and database schemas.  Expertise with both “white box” and “black box” testing is needed.  The candidate must be very proactive in seeking solutions to challenges whether they require code changes, database changes, or architecture changes.

  •  Responsibilities

    Our engineers lead the Quality Assurance effort on every project and take part in all the decisions concerning project scope, direction, readiness, architecture, etc. They demonstrate ownership, accountability, and commitment to their projects.

    Our engineers are much more than “testers” who have used “record and play” software. We are looking for skilled, seasoned software professionals who are excited to learn and who have the experience to bring new ideas and practices to our team.

    We need technology experts in many areas, including:

  • Web based applications
  • Tomcat
  • Load / Performance / Fault Tolerance testing
  • Security testing
  • SQL Databases
  • Programming languages such as C#, Java
  • Our engineers work with different programming languages and source tools. They need to know how to choose the best tools, or if one is not available, to create his or her own. They need to be eager to break software quickly and have the expertise to focus on the most important and critical areas.
