You will have the rewarding opportunity to grow your hands-on skills as part of the Agile team, augmenting both new products and features as well as existing solutions and services.
Who you are:
You are a QA Automation Developer with hands-on automation development experience, including SQL and working as a part of an Agile team. You thrive in a collaborative role where you can work with a team to identify which areas of the application to focus automation efforts and increase code coverage.

We continuously challenge ourselves to innovate solutions to our customers' problems in ways that will delight them.

Teamwork.

We are continually working on moving our payroll and tax software solution forward and improving our customer's experience.
Growth. We are a rapidly scaling company with a focus on promoting from within.

Through our training and mentoring program, you will develop deep technical expertise and gain valuable business and industry-related experience.

Create, continuously improve, collaborate, and communicate. You will work closely with your Scrum team, actively participate in the continuous improvements of applications by developing stable, maintainable, and reliable automated tests for the continuous improvement of applications.
