About the role
We want you to break our software. This role is integrated into our Agent team, and you will work closely with the engineers who are building the software that runs on our customers’ critical systems and infrastructure.

You will work with QA embedded in other engineering teams to author test plans ensuring our product gets complete coverage. The remainder of your time will be running ad-hoc manual tests. However, you will be expected to automate this component of your job as much as possible
You’ll have the opportunity to directly influence how we scale our quality assurance process so we can continue to deliver updates to customers that exceed their expectations.
