QA Engineer

Location: Durham, NC

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Come work for a high-growth company where you can thrive on collaborative teams, and where everyone is encouraged to contribute ideas across all levels of the organization.  You should desire to work in a fast moving and adaptive environment but with the stability, compensation and benefits of a successful company.

As a QA Engineer, you will work alongside our development team, and make sure that we catch bugs in our software before our customers do. Reporting to our QA Team Lead, you’ll reside in a QA team of three in the engineering organization. This means that you’ll assist with the entire software lifecycle: from evaluating proofs-of-concept, to giving the final sign-off on software before it goes live, to helping figure out why customers are seeing odd behavior in the product.

We’re looking for great people, not brogrammers, rock stars or ninjas.

What You’ll Do:

  • Work with our two other QA Engineers to make our software as bug-free as possible
  • Identify tests that would make good candidates for automation and have a desire to learn more about QA automation.
  • Figure out new ways to manually test the parts of the application that need more of a hands-on touch
  • Learn the ins and outs of all of the different ways that customers can interact with Adwerx products

What You Should Have:

  • A strong attention to detail
  • Experience using GitHub and Linux.
  • A brain that thrives on planning, step-by-step execution and documentation
  • Basic knowledge of SQL databases (ideally MySQL) and how to write SQL queries
  • A strong desire to learn and to come up to speed quickly
  • Experience as a user of Software-As-A-Service platforms, along with ideas of how to make them work better
  • Passion for learning about and developing with new technologies, coupled with a pragmatism about using the right tool for the job
  • Big ideas and a tiny ego
  • Flexibility to adapt quickly with our growing and ever-changing business
  • Thrive in a fast-paced, Agile development organization
  • Empathy, and a desire to help others succeed

Things That Would Be Nice To Have:

  • Some understanding of the Ruby and experience working in the Rails console.
  • A background in a customer-facing industry (marketing, tech support, etc)
  • An interest in data analytics and metrics, to help us put numbers around the things that matter

What You’ll Get:

  • Competitive salary and potential for equity.
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision plan options (100% of basic plan premiums paid by company)
  • 401(k) plan with a company match of up to 4%
  • A brand new, state of the art office located at American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC which includes a fully stocked snack, drinks, and coffee area, ping pong table, board games, paid parking, and office keg!
  • The honor of wearing the exclusive Adwerx t-shirt!
  • The opportunity to take possession of a plush aardvark for winning the Aartie Award, much like employee of the month only better because we do it every other week!
  • A collaborative work environment where you’ll learn about and influence every aspect of the business
  • The opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most talented leaders, developers, marketers and designers.
  • The ability to help define the foundational technology that will power the growth of our business
  • An environment that fosters transparency and the company vision through monthly company updates, happy hours and full disclosure
