Quality Assurance (QA) Analyst
Arsenal (https://witharsenal.com/) is a Kickstarter-backed technology company that is seeking a full-time QA Analyst. The most crowdfunded camera gadget ever, Arsenal is growing rapidly and looking for talented, driven individuals to join our team. This is a great opportunity to join an early stage company that presents professional and financial growth opportunities as the business expands.
The QA Analyst position will primarily be responsible for executing test procedures and performing other validations to evaluate functionality of a mobile app (Android and Apple versions) interacting with a hardware device (our product) that connects to various DSLR or mirrorless cameras (over 100 are supported). Test procedures are designed to validate connectivity and core functionality with different types of cameras while using various phones with different Operating Systems, OS versions, and phone manufacturers/models. Testing in this multivariate environment requires strong attention to detail, a methodical approach to debugging, ability to document and communicate issues or recommendations clearly, and consistency of execution.
The QA Analyst will work closely with the CEO and CTO of the company at various stages of the product life cycle. They will also work with the COO and the Support team when new bugs are discovered. An applicant also must be willing to research and self-teach as new challenges are encountered. As is common in a startup, we are also looking for someone that will be flexible in both the level of role they perform and the types of challenges they work on. A self-starter that works largely independently and is willing to adapt is a must for the position.
