POSITION OVERVIEW:


A QA Engineer works closely with the cross-functional product team and is responsible for enabling the team to release quality software at speed.


We currently have a mix of automated and manual testing. It is our goal to automate as much as possible in the interest of faster release delivery.


Regardless of the style of testing, one important aspect of work on the team is using the CHT in a technical sense. We build a toolkit and as a QA engineer you will use the tools to assemble, configure, and test applications. Some of the more technical day-to-day activities involve working on the command line, modifying data, and starting up services with Docker.


The work is more technically challenging than may typically be found in a QA role and if you’re looking for that, please apply!
