We like building a fantastic product and are looking for a QA Manager to lead our team. We apply the rigor of engineering to Quality, to develop ways to ensure testing is easy, to ensure feedback is quick and do all this in a measurable way.

  • Research and evaluate current automation testing tools and recommend new tools as necessary

  • Set up build/continuous integration tools, so that an automated build process is set in place. Consequently, set up automated test suites to run from the build system

  • Measure coverage and other metrics that could help us identify gaps in testing and improve the quality of our products

  • Performance measurement/testing, identifying bottlenecks and working with dev teams to resolve those issues and verifying that the fixes resolve the issues reported and do not cause regressions

This job may not be for you if:

  • If the pace of a fast-moving company makes you uncomfortable

  • If you prefer a strictly defined role where you come in, do X, Y, Z every day and go home, to a role where your knowledge is the only limit to what you do

  • If you need a lot of well established policies and procedures before you can make decisions and drive results, this might not be the best role for you
