Full time Security Software Startup

Job Description

We believe that no enterprise should have to choose between data security, regulatory compliance, and ROI.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to help organizations take full advantage of multi-cloud cost-efficiency, resilience, agility, and scale — with full assurance their data is protected, compliant and with IT controls that extend across the cloud.

We’ve reinvented software-defined object storage by combining the cost and resource efficiency of the object storage approach with exceptionally strong, blockchain-hardened data protection and the capacity to manage data on a petabyte scale.

We’re growing rapidly, and we’re looking for a Senior QA Engineer to join our team.

What does the job entail?

As a member of our team, you’ll participate in the development of our leading-edge technology and products.

What does the successful candidate “look like”?

We’re a fast-paced start-up, so we need versatile self-starters who are motivated by new technologies and will jump right in.  We’re seeking a senior test engineer that has broad experience with software testing best practices and methodologies, but also has a learning mindset and is comfortable working in a rapidly evolving environment.

We don’t expect to find someone that is a perfect match to the details below, but here are the typical bullet points that we’re hoping you bring to the table:

  • 5+ years of experience in enterprise software test and quality assurance.
  • Experience in working with an agile development team and DevOps environment.
  • Experience in the development of test strategies and automation for complex back-end software solutions.
  • A desire to drive the test strategy from planning to execution with a goal of continuous improvement.
  • Proven expertise in troubleshooting, debugging and root-cause analysis.
  • Experience working with virtualization as a development and deployment tool.
  • Proven leadership experience, including the mentoring of junior team members and fostering collaborative work environments.
  • Deep knowledge of web protocols including HTTP.
  • Comfortable with database use for SQL and NoSQL-based database systems.
  • A great sense of humour :).

In a perfect world, you’d also have:

  • Experience in customer-facing roles such as product support of field engineering.
  • Knowledge of data security, application security and/or network security.
  • DevOps deployment and operations experience for web applications.
  • Deep knowledge of web protocols including TLS, JSON, XML, JWT.
  • Regulatory governance methodologies and compliance reporting.
  • Enterprise IT operations experience.
  • Knowledge of object-based storage.
  • Familiarity with Java, AWS, OpenStack, Azure, Docker.
  • Background in distributed systems and architectures.

What’s in it for me?

We’re a small team with the heart of a start-up.  We treat each and every person that joins us as a VIP, and everyone has the opportunity to make a significant impact on the success of our business.  Although we don’t have a go-kart track and beach volleyball pit on our premises, we’re big on providing autonomy, mastery, and purpose, and ensuring that our employees have a strong life-work balance.

We create awesome technology with awesome technology, our leadership has been around the block a few times and knows what leading a rapid growth tech company is like, and we treat our people as our biggest asset and differentiator; because they are.
