Who is LeanDNA

LeanDNA is solving the $150 billion problem facing global manufacturers: Tied up working capital and on-time delivery challenges caused by excess inventory and critical shortages. Built from Lean manufacturing practices, we empower teams at the world’s top aerospace, industrial, automotive, and medical device manufacturers to make impactful inventory optimization decisions for the factory. The result? Real value for their organization, fast. 

LeanDNA launched in 2014 with the goal of bridging the gap between complex supply chains and their outdated, labor-intensive methods for reporting, analytics, and lean project management. The goal hasn’t changed, and as our team grows, our commitment has grown with it.

You will interact with the dev team to ensure the requirements are fulfilled and the solutions provide an excellent user experience.

This position offers a mixture of manual verification, test automation, and activities that help us improve the quality of our development processes. Our automation stack includes python-based frontend testing, creation of test scenarios using simulated data sets, python, frontend testing frameworks, and Java unit tests.

We offer excellent opportunities to prove yourself in an extremely fast-cycle deployment and a chance to get in early and grow alongside a high-trajectory team. We move fast and do really cool things. Join us and take a key role in building out our QA team.

What you will be doing:

  • Communicate with the product team to fully understand the customer requirements

  • Report any defects in a detailed manner to the development team

  • Provide sign-off for the release of new features

  • Contribute to sprint activities such as retrospectives and release readiness reviews


  • Degree in Engineering, CS, Math or Science

  • Detail-oriented approach to problem-solving

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

  • Due to the nature of our business, we can only accept U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residency status

Nice to have:

  • Working experience with supply chain and ERP systems

  • Experience writing new automated test scenarios to expand coverage and reduce the need for manual testing over time

  • Software development lifecycle knowledge and experience with software testing tools and methodologies

  • Scripting abilities (python, bash) and experience with test automation

If you are an industrial or manufacturing engineer that is looking to move to the software realm, we’d love to speak with you.
