CafeMedia’s mission is to keep the promise of the Open Web -- that everyone can have their own site, and that creators own their creations and their future.  We build technology to help independent creators be their own platform, to reach audiences at scale, and to make more money off their work than ever before. We bring the technology and expertise of the biggest, most innovative and successful digital publishers in the world and put it to work for independent publishers and individual creators. And it’s working. We’re growing fast and helping more and more creators live their passion, independently and on their own terms. That’s why we need you!

We are looking for a quick-witted QA Engineer to join us as a founding member of a new team responsible for creating a portfolio of marketing products for our publishers.

You will be responsible for tracking and maintaining the quality of our products. Day-to-day you will break new features, catch regressions, and make quality a part of every release cycle. The ideal person for this role is an excellent communicator and fast learner with a unique ability to see the product from the user's perspective. We work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment where things can change quickly, so you will have to stay on your toes and make use of your maximum communication skills in order to succeed.

What you’ll be doing

  • Manually testing interfaces and APIs for defects as part of the release cycle
  • Assessing risk and prioritizing issues based on impact to publishers and development cost
  • Writing and executing testing plans for larger project releases
  • Following up to ensure bugs are resolved
  • Giving feedback to developers on ways the product can be improved
  • Building a culture of quality within our product team

The skills and experience you’ll bring to the job
