    As a Quality Assurance Engineer (QAE), you will work with developers to plan solid test strategies, and write and execute tests that validate new improvements to our systems. Working within frameworks created to support our team, you will develop and implement automated test suites. You test code at the user level, both manually and with automated tools.

    Our QA Engineers are not pure black box testers; they test at the appropriate level and are able to understand software internals, debug problems using log files, and write automated tests with Perl/Java scripts and/or user-level automated tools.

    The ideal candidate gets excited about making certain the user experience is the best possible. The strength of an engineer is the ability to create documentation, creatively improve the software development and QA process, and the finely honed ability to break software in unexpected ways. Candidates must be innovative, creative, flexible, self-directed, and understand quality assurance procedures and methodologies. They are responsible for using internal tools that facilitate various processes.
