Location: International, Anywhere; 100% Remote
Close is a bootstrapped, profitable, 100% remote, ~70 person team of thoughtful individuals who value autonomy and impact. We’re eager to make a product our customers fall in love with over and over again.
We ❤️ startups & SMBs. Since 2013, we’ve been building a CRM that focuses on better communication, without the hassle of manual data entry or complex UI. Our goal: double the productivity of every sales rep.
We care about performance, maintainability, and testability of our code. Writing unit/integration tests is embedded into our engineering culture. We test more complex features end-to-end via Cypress. We also house lists of manual test steps to follow for testing critical features like calling and composing emails. Our focus is on testing actual user behavior, leveraging the Testing Library approach.
Our product development process is inspired by Shape Up. We sweat the UI/UX details and work collaboratively with the Product team throughout the design process. We think about testing in the technical specification phase and we continuously spend time assuring we’re shipping a high-quality product.
We open source our code and ideas on our GitHub and on The Making of Close, our behind-the-scenes Product & Engineering blog. Check out our projects like TaskTiger and use-infinite-scroll or insights from our day-to-day work such as Rendering untrusted HTML email, safely, How We Improved Reliability Of Our WebSocket Connections, and A Case Study in”Reactizing” a Complex Backbone View.
We’re looking for an experienced full-time individual to join us as the 1st QA Engineer on our team. Someone who has a solid understanding of web technologies and real world user behavior and wants to help test, QA, and launch major user-facing features. You’d enjoy an opportunity to lead the way on the QA front and help us establish best practices for testing/QA and help us improve the quality of our product.
You should have at least 4 years of experience with testing/QA of user-facing behavior. You have a brain for breaking things. You are detail-oriented and thorough when writing down test plans and when opening high-quality bug reports. You deeply care about the quality of a product and have a solid understanding of modern test automation frameworks like Cypress or Playwright.
You’re comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with a small and talented team where you’re supported in your efforts to grow professionally. You are able to manage your time well, communicate effectively, and collaborate with a fully distributed team.
