Float, the world’s leading resource planner, is looking for a QA Engineer to undertake manual and automatic QA testing work, performing the necessary cross-browser and mobile testing to continue to maintain the high bar for our product releases. We’re a team of people living our best remote work lives
. From New York to Melbourne, Canada to South Africa - our team of Engineers, Product Managers, Marketing and Customer Success folks work asynchronously to help teams plan and manage their time better. Float is self-funded, profitable, and growing. If you’re a self-starter, aligned with our values
, and are looking to join a team that’s passionate about helping others work and live more productively, we want to hear from you. Here are a few tips from our CEO
to make sure your resume stands out from the crowd.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re looking for a candidate with solid experience in testing a web-based product, across multiple browsers and mobile applications. Ideally, you have some experience programming or using advanced testing tools. You have an eye for detail and are able to communicate clearly and concisely, creating minimal reproduction cases for Engineers. For this role, we are looking for someone who is willing to take the time to learn our product and to ask questions about how things are expected to work and conduct reliable testing while documenting issues raised as they go on.
We expect that the successful candidate will have successful experience in the following areas:
- Testing front-end interfaces such as web dashboards (cross-browser testing with Browserstack a plus) and mobile apps (Android and iOS)
- Testing backend services such as APIs, databases & distributed services (familiarity with Postman a plus)
- Excellent clear and concise communication style, fluent in English
- Inquisitive and eager to learn a product inside out
- Strong attention to detail to follow guidelines and notice what might be amiss
Asynchronous is the default form of communication at Float, and we have very few meetings, so you’ll have long stretches of time to focus on deep work. Everyone at Float leads by example and sets the bar for quality.
What You’ll Do
You will be working in partnership with our Engineers to ensure that the product we ship to our customers is of the highest standard. You will achieve this by performing cross-browser, mobile, and API testing. As part of this testing, you will follow our manual testing guidelines for regression testing as well as perform automated and more free-form exploratory testing, looking for unexpected behaviour and overlooked edge cases.
Acting as the eyes and voice of the customer, you will prioritize issues found, helping the Engineering team to focus their efforts on the most impactful issues. Over time there will be the opportunity to maintain and extend our automated test suite, to provide an extra level of confidence in the quality of our product.
What We Offer
The salary for this role is US $77k
We have a range of expanding and improving benefits and perks including:
- Home office expense budget
- Co-working expense budget
- Health & Fitness budget
- Annual team meetup
- Care for your community
For those in the US, we’ll pay 50% of your medical, dental & vision coverage, including partners and children. Since our HQ is in New York, those outside of the US will be hired as contractors—but don’t worry—you’ll have access to the same great benefits. We’re a global company and we encourage people of all different locations, nationalities, backgrounds, and perspectives to apply.
