We are looking for an entry-level test engineer (a/k/a software quality engineer) to help us ensure the software quality of our cloud-based web applications and our mobile applications. You will report directly to the CTO.
This is a unique opportunity to join as we transition from a stealth startup to a well-known brand that consumers and companies alike know and trust. You’ll be working closely with experienced business and technical leaders where your voice will be heard, and your actions will shape the team’s success. As with many early stage companies, there is an immense opportunity to learn and have impact as we grow.
We believe strongly that diverse teams drive greater innovation. Diversity comes from people of different backgrounds and experiences working together in an environment where ideas are respected, voices are heard, and decisions are made with integrity in the best interest of our company and our customers. We believe we can build the best product when everyone contributes.
Nametag has both B2B (cloud-based) and B2C (mobile applications) components - we are a platform that connects companies with their customers, allowing customers to securely share details about their verified identity. The experience the end-user has is of paramount importance to us, so delivering applications that are reliable under a wide range of circumstances and in a wide range of uses is critical. Because of the complexity of the interactions between the mobile applications, the web application, and the server, much of the testing has not been automated; your role will be to develop and execute manual test plans while also identifying areas where the testing can be automated (and, if you are so motivated, learn about and implement automated tests). We release both web-based and mobile applications multiple times per week; a reliable, efficient, and comprehensive testing regimen is important.
In your first 180 days
- Explore our website and mobile apps
- Support engineers in testing their code before it is released to the world
- Interpret end-user feedback to enhance future testing
- Develop and enhance testing plans
No one is perfect and you don’t need to answer yes to all of these to be amazing in this role, but ideally you match most of the items below, and you possess the drive and attitude to learn the rest.
- You have that special knack for breaking things. You find software bugs everywhere you look. Online checkin never works for you. You know what I mean.
- You have a deep curiosity about how things work.
- You are detail oriented and can produce detailed, accurate and actionable bug reports.
- You needn’t be a master software developer, but if you have experience in a programming language or two, that would be an awesome bonus.
