Tanium is hiring a

Senior QA Engineer, Salesforce


The Basics:

Tanium and Salesforce have recently partnered together, and we are seeking QA Engineers to help make sure the solutions we are building across the Salesforce and Tanium platforms are of high performance and quality. The offering pairs Tanium’s speed and visibility with Salesforce’s case management and workflows. This is a unique opportunity that will push the limits in how you think about extending Salesforce.  We are looking for someone who is an expert on the Salesforce platform and can be sure our technology scales and works across all the permutations and configurations the Salesforce platform allows.

What you’ll do:

  • QA Engineers are responsible for testing products built on top of the powerful Salesforce and Tanium platforms. This will involve working with developers and product managers to construct & execute test plans, plan for functional, performance & regression testing, file detailed bugs, and providing visibility through project updates.
  • Strong technical skills are essential. If you are not comfortable hunting down resource leaks while simulating hundreds of thousands of clients, scripting environment configuration for dozens of target OS’s, this may not be the place for you. If these things sound as exciting to you as they do to us, then Tanium could be your new home!
  • Work hand in hand with the development team to ensure our products are designed the right way from the beginning
  • Help with product customization and packaging as well as demonstration scripts, scenarios, use cases for the pre-sales team and managed package best practices.
  • Work with enablement teams (SME, PM, TSE, etc.) to ensure the appropriate materials are provided to ensure success
  • Assist with competitive analyses and understand the differentiators between Tanium and its competitors.
  • Collaborate with the product management team to identify new opportunities for Tanium’s technology, strategic direction, and business imperatives


We’re looking for someone with:


  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, IT or other relevant degree or equivalent experience
  • Salesforce Admin and other Salesforce certifications a plus


  • 3+ years industry experience, 5+ preferred
  • Utilize project management and leadership skills to effectively manage multiple concurrent projects throughout the entire software development cycle
  • Author and execute test plans and test cases
  • Manage resources, project plans, estimates and timelines
  • Review test plans, monitor test progress, and distribute test reports
  • Understand business requirements and develop test cases against them


  • Experienced debugger who can put out fires under pressure when things go wrong in production environments
  • Detail-oriented and passionate for creating an awesome user experience
  • Align with the Tanium values: we win as a team, we do the right thing, and we are unstoppable
  • Strong written communication, verbal communication and presentation skills
  • Adept at understanding and navigating organizations in order to inspire and influence internal and external customers
  • Grit; ability to deal with and overcome challenges and ability to deal with ambiguity
  • Do-what-it-takes approach; willingness to get your hands dirty
  • Entrepreneurial spirit who is never satisfied w/ 2nd place
