Job Description

About Foursquare:

Foursquare helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. We're a small but highly ambitious company with millions of users worldwide relying on Foursquare to keep up with friends, discover what's nearby, save money and unlock deals.  We’re also helping over a million registered merchants ranging from local businesses to global brands connect with their customers. 

To thrive as a member of team Foursquare, you must embrace our exciting work-hard, play-hard environment. We're not afraid to move fast and break things as we release, launch, iterate, update and announce -- sometimes all in the same day. We're a closely-knit team and, especially at the end of a long day over beers, we feel like we're inventing the future together.

About our QA Manager position:

You are passionate about quality and care about the end user experience. You love working in teams, side-by-side with amazing engineers, product managers and designers.  You love tinkering with new products and delight in hunting down bugs through exploratory testing. You plan for the future by creating test plans and test cases for manual black box testing. You work well under pressure.

That's awesome, because we're looking for someone just like you.
