Who We Are
FlexJobs’ mission is to help people find the best remote and flexible jobs in an easier, safer, and faster way. We’ve been the leader in this space for over 14 years, and from day one have been committed to serving all of our stakeholders with integrity, intelligence, balance, communication, and care.
In terms of work flexibility, we also walk the talk. This is a remote job, as our entire team works remotely from locations all across the United States. Having a great company culture is really important to us, and we’ve been named one of Outside magazine’s Best Places to Work (2019) and Best Company Culture by Entrepreneur magazine (2018, 2017, and 2015).

Responsibilities of the Job: The Opportunity
The QA Specialist III is a part of the team responsible for testing new/updated features, as well as routine testing across our brands. The ideal candidate will be proficient in building and running manual and automated testing of websites and mobile apps, ideally in the job search industry. Your experience will demonstrate that you have a solid understanding of -- and follow -- Quality Assurance best practices. You should possess solid technical skills to develop, modify, and execute manual and automated software tests and use testing tools and methodologies to achieve the test objectives. You should understand the benefits of test automation and will have been part of a team that has successfully used it in the past. As a Level III Specialist, it is expected that you will be confident and capable of focusing on more complex and challenging tests, as well as to be an integral part of training other team members when needed.
A strong attention to detail and a sense of satisfaction for manual and automated website and mobile app testing will be important. You should be an outgoing, positive, and communicative person who is comfortable (and energized!) by taking responsibility for testing new software releases, troubleshooting, and verifying ongoing development. We work in a fast-moving development team with a great deal of collaboration and communication -- within the team, with the product team, and with stakeholders across the company. This is a full-time position where you will work from your home office, with your own devices.
