Job Description

In a nutshell, you’ll be the bridge between code and meeting people’s needs.
This role is a hybrid between traditional QA and software business analyst roles.
You’ll ensure that our software continually helps customers more by deeply understanding their needs. You’ll also help to question and improve software designs while testing, in order to catch problems early on.  


  • Dig into customer feedback to get a deeper understanding of their needs
  • Test new software updates
  • Work with software designers and developers, help design the product features and make sure updates ship quickly with high quality
  • Pre-release manual software testing to find what might have broken, alongside our automated tests
  • Clearly communicate details of software updates to our customer support and marketing teams
  • Understand the software architecture and dig into logs and SQL databases to get to the root of the problem


  • Familiarity with technical troubleshooting (e.g., SQL, REST APIs, browser consoles, log files, etc.)
  • The ability to quickly understand broad concepts across people, processes, software design, and software development considerations
  • The drive and courage necessary to ask challenging questions and work with multiple people to push for change
  • Detail oriented thinking and a critical eye to catch problems
  • The ability to look at a problem from all angles and suggest the best solution, making appropriate tradeoffs
  • Clear and concise communication skills
  • 1+ years experience working with agile software development

Nice to have (but not necessary)

  • Experience working closely with user interface designers and/or user experience specialists
  • Experience working closely with software developers
  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent hands-on experience
  • Experience with software test automation
  • Experience with small business inventory management
  • A healthy sense of impatience
  • Bonus points if you find any bugs in this job posting ;)
