Careers

QA Engineer

Description

At Nutonian we believe strongly that QA is not quality injection, it is quality assurance. We already have substantial automation in place and all our developers write unit and small scale integration tests which run on every check in. We believe this makes us more productive as developers and a company, not an unnecessary burden.

Our core technology, built on academic research, automates finding and explaining statistical models to help businesses make data driven decisions. Our products have over 80,000 installations, and our technology's reach is growing every day. Our team is still small - everyone has a large impact and knows the CEO personally. As with most high performance companies, while we work hard, we also have strong team spirit and sense of family. Working with us will bring you excellent benefits, office perks, regular company meals, and social outings.

The QA Engineer is the gatekeeper of quality within our team here at Nutonian. You will set the standard within the whole group and guarantee we live up to it. Using a mix of manual and automated testing, you will be collaborating with development, design, and management to ensure quality and testability early in the software development process. We are a small agile team working within an exciting start-up atmosphere. Every single person is critical to our success and makes a very valuable contribution to the direction we are headed in.
