QA Automation Engineer

We're building a new, world-class team in the Boston area to create a powerful new web platform.  We need exceptional engineers who can work together to squeeze every last bit of power and performance out of modern web browsers.  Innovative thinking and a passion for technology are critical components because this is a ground-floor opportunity with seasoned, successful entrepreneurs.  This is a true start-up funded by a stable, mature company that produces products that make a difference in people’s lives every day.

We need you to help us invent, develop and deliver an innovative and reliable web platform emphasizing innovation and reliability.  You’ll work with our software architect, product manager and VP of Engineering to design and implement a robust automated testing system.  This isn’t a position that’s task-oriented, we need creative thinkers on our team who aren’t afraid to try new things that deliver exponential instead of incremental results.

What’s important to us is that you are a passionate technologist with an expert understanding of automating software testing for web applications that make heavy use of Java and JavaScript.  We’re just building our automation framework so here’s your chance to build the environment the way you think it should be built.

We’re a group of marathoners, basketball and tennis players, skiers and history buffs, and even a Boston Pops tenor, and all of us thrive on innovation and creativity.  Bring us your expertise where you can leave a mark on a great product, work for a great company that offers excellent benefits like 100% paid family medical insurance (including co-pays) and flexible schedules, all while having fun at the same time with a great team.
