Now Hiring: Seattle-based Jr. QA Engineer / Test Analyst 

06/30/20162 Min Read — In Hiring, Testing

This is a contract role. Start date ASAP.

Whether you're a hands-on exploratory tester, a test-case driven analyst, a tools-driven QA engineer, or a test automator or just a technology-focused professional looking to move into software development, this role can accommodate. We're looking for a beginning to mid-level tester with Black Box testing skills for 40hr/wk for 6mos with a large possibility of FTE.

You'll get to work with iOS, Android, Python/Django, JavaScript/Node. There's plenty of hands-on analysis and review of native mobile apps along with a CMS and API to test and perhaps automate as well. You'd be joining an agile team in Downtown Seattle contributing your skills to an in-flight software project that needs your expertise.

Ideally, we'd like someone in the door that knows how to test from all angles (or really wants to learn!) and knows that a wide range of approaches is better for test coverage than homogeneity. This project has enough going on to support your style and experience of testing along with pushing the boundaries of what you may be used to. If you want a learning environment, you'll be happy here.

Please give us a shout if you:

  • are unafraid of the command line
  • like getting your hands dirty
  • are available full-time M-F 9-5
  • can do on-site contract work in a business casual environment
  • have your own laptop machine (required), devices (negotiable)
  • are able to thrive in an Agile-ish environment
  • have some test experience and understand QA mindset
  • can multitask and juggle priorities
  • are able to do root cause analysis of bugs
  • can write clear and concise defect reports
  • can explain and defend your testing efforts

This contract would be great for a games tester looking to move out of games and on to a product and service-based software projects, a code-school grad looking for their first software gig who's unafraid of testing and understands the value, a junior tester who wants to get more varied experience and expand their testing skills, etc.
