Senior QA Engineer - NPI
We are the fastest growing home security company in the country competing against the entrenched giants, like ADT, and the new-to-the-space giants, like Amazon and Google. To compete in this ever growing IoT home automation security space we must learn and iterate quickly, work collaboratively, and deliver creatively. In service to this challenge, our engineering team is proud to own and run the literal "full stack", from designing and building the circuit boards on our hardware all the way to coding the UI on our mobile applications.
We are looking for a QA Engineer who is excited to get into the guts of our products and services. This role involves many moving pieces throughout an integrated system. You will be working with multi-disciplinary engineering teams, debugging and finessing our fullstack of devices and services. Some technologies we work with include: cameras, PIR sensors, WiFi/cell modules, microservices (informed by multiple data stores, message buses, and cache instances). We’re looking for someone passionate about learning the intricacies of an integrated embedded system and can lead discussions around qualitative and quantitative testing processes.
Our ideal candidate is willing to adapt, learn and grow to the needs of our fast-scaling company. You will be challenged to lead conversations around processes and assess risk. If you enjoy challenges, this full stack is an enormous opportunity for you to grow and make a huge impact.

- Join a scrum team that solely owns a critical component of our security solution
- Pragmatically work alongside each dev team carefully balancing risk and delivery

- Help evaluate, implement, and build on top of the many quality tool sets available
- Team with fellow QA members in the quest for continuous growth and improvement
- Live and breath our DevOps mission: empowering each team to fully own their product and/or service end-to-end
- Test across the full-stack including hardware, firmware, database, and back end technologies
- 5+ years of testing/QA experience
- Experience with SQL and MongoDB
