QA Lead

Friday, May 21st, 2010

We don’t open the gates to Panic Towers often. “Hire only when you absolutely need to,” we say.

Well, it’s time. We need to!

Up until now, Panic has depended on fantastic beta testers (nearly 500 bugs filed and fixed during Transmit 4’s dev cycle), the coordination of our brilliant support and engineering teams, and great user reports, to make our software awesome.

But as our apps get more complex — this is good, as we like making meaty things! — we realize a full-time tester could help everyone.

We are looking for an experienced QA lead.

The ideal candidate will be the foundation of our QA efforts. Ideally, we want somebody with experience who will:

  • Take charge of formalizing our QA processes
  • Construct and execute rigorous test plans
  • Triage and verify incoming bug reports
  • Confirm bug fixes developed by engineering
  • Liaison with user community on vague issues
  • Be familiar with automation and scripting tools
  • Enjoy pursuing and solving problems every day

This position is in Portland, Oregon.

Sound interesting? E-mail your resume to us. If we’re interested, we will send you additional details and possibly schedule an interview.

While we can’t write back to everyone, we thank you in advance for your interest!
