QA Engineer – Job Description
 
Part detective, part creative problem solver, part tech nerd, all enthusiasm. Quality Assurance isn’t a check box on “Ye Olde Development Checklist”, it’s one of the most vital pieces of the process. A good quality assurance engineer works with developers to fix problems and find their causes. The easy defects are the ones we write, the hard ones are system problems that we have to work around. Work with the team to provide excellent solutions to customer problems, with other enthusiastic people. Don your Deerstalker (that’s a Sherlock Holmes joke) and bring your passion for technology and your multi-faceted skill set with you, we may just have an excellent job for you.
