  • Apply hands-on technical troubleshooting skills to existing processes with quality problems


What we’re looking for:

We’re looking for you if you’re an experienced quality engineer with automation experience who is proficient in delivering quality products and building tests within all levels of the testing pyramid. More specifically, we’re looking for:
